1000 Yd Swim & 3.1 Mile Run

Posted Oct 01 2009 10:38pm
I was feeling bad about missing my workouts yesterday so I decided to hit it hard today. I was going to get up early and run outside but when I did I decided it would be nice to swim too.

So I went to the gym and got in 1000 yards in the pool. I decided to work on speed so I did a bunch of 2x50 interval sprints and finished with a couple of slow 2x50 to cool down and reclaim my form.

I then hit the locker room, showered up and jumped on the treadmill. My starting pace about a 9 minute mile but then I became increasingly bored and upped the pace. The whole reason was because I was so bored on the treadmill that I wanted to finish faster! Ended up doing 3.1 miles in 24:46 minutes. Not a bad time but I should have started harder!

Tomorrow Annie and I are going to run at an easy pace for 30 minutes. Then on Saturday we have a 10 mile run scheduled. The good news is that a cold front is coming through and the temperature is going to be in the high 70's, but it is supposed to rain.

Thanks for Reading,

Jeff
