Training has been a flop lately due to my busy schedule. Here's what happened last week:
Wed - 5.2km run, 34:50, 6:41/km
Fri - 8.5km treadmill run, 1:00, 7:03/km
Sat - 11km bike, 31:00
Mon - 13.3km run, 1:30:11, 6:46/km
Totals: 27km run, 11km bike, and a B+ in neuroanatomy :)
I was hardly home on the weekend (birthday and wedding related events) and did not manage to squeeze in my long run or a longer bike ride. We've also been getting record amounts of rain, which is not helping with the bike training (note to self: time to get an indoor trainer). I was determined to get a long run done, so I went out as soon as I got home from work today. It's a little tough to do a long run at 7pm when you haven't eaten dinner yet, but I got 90 min done. At least I feel somewhat better about getting my mileage up to a decent level for my half in less than 4 weeks. My pace was much better this week, and I felt strong on my runs. Can I still do this half? Probably. It won't be a PB, nor will it be easy, but I think I can push through it.
I haven't registered for the Milton women's tri yet, but I'm pretty sure that I want to give the super sprint duathlon a try. I just hope that it doesn't rain that day, because I would be pretty nervous about riding on slick roads!
