Whenever I have to travel for work, my workout schedule always gets a bit screwed up. I went into the week knowing I would be swimming in a smaller hotel pool and not being sure of the distance so my goal was to swim 30 mins each of my 4 swimming days. I was able to do that so that was great. I’m not sure of the correct distance I swam, but I figured it was somewhere in the 1100-1200m range
I only ran 1 day in FL as it’s always so hard running in the warmer, humid weather, but I made up for that by running 7 miles on Saturday. That was my longest run for the year. The weather was perfect and I felt great. I ended my running week with a 3 mile run as part of a BRICK workout to hit 15 miles for the week. I was surprised how good I felt running off the bike. My legs had the normal jelly feeling, but after the for first mile, they felt normal and I ran the 3 miles without any walking breaks. The surprising part though was that I ran it at under 11-mile/mile pace. My legs felt great and they just kept going.
While my swimming and running went great, my cycling was below average. Mentally, I’m having a hard time doing the longer ride. It didn’t help that it was 60F on Sunday. To avoid the long ride, I ended up riding just 1 hour and turning my bike ride into a BRICK workout and running 3 miles after cycling for 17 miles.
Goals for Next Week: I have an unexpected trip back to FL so that is going to impact my training schedule. It is likely I’ll only get in 3 swimming days and all of them will be at a hotel pool again. So, my goals will be to swim 30 mins each of the 3 swimming days, run 15 miles and do a 40-50-mile long bike ride
