Workouts this week:
Tuesday – 6 x 800 (90 sec RI)
Done. I had so much energy and wanted to do more. It must be the chia seeds in my green monster smoothie that I drink almost every day.
Thursday – 2 miles easy, 3 miles @ short tempo, 1 mile easy
Did not run.
Saturday – 8 miles at HMP, 10 minutes walking
I ran 3.13 miles for a virtual 5K. It was another gorgeous day to run along the lakefront.
Total miles ran this week is 9.08.
Since I am doing The L.A.T.E. Ride at the end of the month, I decided to take out my bike for a ride. And yes, I did that along the lakefront too. It was tough at the beginning but then I got the hang of it. I did 2 miles and took a break because my quads were on fire and my seat was not so comfortable (even with a seat cushion). I did another 2 miles and took another break. I guess that was my warmup because I turned around and rode 4 miles straight for a total of 8.
After today I truly admire those people that do LONG, LONG bike rides. What I plan to do before my bike ride is to shop for another bike. The one I have is a good one but it is a mountain bike and HEAVY. I also want a more comfortable seat. I would have pedaled longer today if my behind was not hurting. As for the quads being on fire, breaks solves that problem. 🙂
