The highlight for this week was the first week of the beginner swim class that I’m taking. By the second day, I was able to swim freestyle with side breathing. Now, I can only swim 25m at a time then have to take a brief rest then swim another 25m, but after that 50m I need about 5 mins rest. The goal though was to learn to swim with side breathing and I accomplished that. Now I need to work on my endurance.
In running and biking, I did the same distances as the previous week. 11 miles running and 60 miles biking. I did my second ever brick session today, running 1.5 miles right after my 30-mile bike ride. Legs felt like jelly, but that was to be expected. By about the 0.75-mile mark, my legs felt fine in that they didn’t feel like jelly, but they were still tire though, but more like the tired feeling at the end of a long run.
Here is my week from TrainingPeaks:
Goals For Next Week: I will keep the amount of running the same. For the biking, I will add 5 miles to the long bike ride. For swimming, I hope to log at least 200m for each of the 4 days of my swimming class with a stretch goal of reaching 400m on one of those days.
