This week was another jam packed week with lots of running and cross training. With the Cherry Blossom 10 miler race just 4 weeks away, increasing my running mileage while staying injury free has been my focus. Even though triathlon season is quickly approaching, I have not thought about training for it until this weekend. I realized I kind of did a sort of tri this weekend by accident. Let me explain in this Weekly Wrap A Tri-ing Week.
Weekly Wrap A Tri-ing Week
Monday-15 min elliptical and 60 min strength training
Tuesday- 6 mile run + 60 min yoga class
After a few days off last weekend traveling, I was excited to get in a longer run.
Wednesday- 15 min elliptical + 90 min strength training and kick boxing
Thursday- 6 mile run
Tired legs today but made it through.
Friday- 60 minutes yoga + swim class (2000 m)
Loved the combo of yoga right before swim. Glad to be back on my weekly Friday swim class routine and happy to log some good distance.
Saturday- 26 miles on a simulated tri bike course
First class on a computrainer that simulated a local tri course. A chance to ride with Coco as well. Look for a full review on this coming Wednesday.
Sunday- 9 mile run on the plan
A tri-ing week
So, here’s what I am thinking….I may have accidentally done a triathlon this weekend without even meaning to. With a long swim on Friday, a bike ride on Saturday and a run on Sunday, I have to think that counts for something. Ever do a tri by accident? What do you think? Who says a triathlon has to be completed all in one day? I might be on to something here.
