The week thus far…
This week has been pretty decent training wise. I missed the Tuesday morning swim, but otherwise everything has been pretty good.
The highlight of the week was my Bike workout Tuesday night and last night’s run! I did it (the bike workout) with my friend Matt and his wife – we did a 2×20 @ FTP. I averaged 300 watts, and 292 watts for them – I was quite happy with them. I was nearly in need of a puke bag after the second interval – it was awesome! Matt was a rock star though, he crushed me on both intervals.
Last night I did a track workout. Typically on Wednesday I’ve been doing a 1:15 run with 20 minutes @ T-Pace inserted. That workout has sort of stalled @ about 6:25ish/mile, so i decided to do some shorter intervals to try and break through – 6×1000’s @ Daniels I Pace (3:41) w/ 600m easy was the prescription. Long story short, I more or less nailed all 6 of them!
This weekend I am headed to my parents for Mother’s Day and to meet my sister’s boy toy for the first time – so I am planning to do my long ride tomorrow. Goal is ~5 hours with 4x[5×3 (1′)] @ FTP at the top of each hour – then a long run Sunday at my parents.
Additionally – my wife, Mary completed her first Marathon last weekend. Despite saying she would never do one again, last night she miraculously decided to do another this fall!
