Week Four, Day Two: 40 min Run + 40 min Swim

Posted Jan 06 2010 6:06am
Good day today!

My knees are feeling much better.  Still some soreness but not pain.  This is a much more manageable scenario!

This morning I did a 4.30 mile run in 40 minutes.  I tried to keep it nice and easy in the RPE 2-3 zone like my training plan suggested.  It was really cold out but after about 10 minutes or so I warmed up and got a nice run in. 

In the evening I went to the gym to hit the pool.  The gym was crowded with all the resolutionists but the pool was empty!  I worked on a bunch of drills from The Essential Triathlon Swimming DVD and then did a quick 400 yards of laps to re-enforce the drills.  I am still pretty slow with my freestyle stroke but am getting much more comfortable in the water.  Swimming does not feel as hard as it did a couple of weeks ago and I think the drills from the DVD are really helping. 

Today is another double day.  My run is scheduled for 40 minutes and the swim is scheduled for 30 minutes.  I will probably do the run right after work and then eat some dinner and go swim later.  I was going to run this morning but it is freezing cold out and I am a huge wimp!

Thanks for Reading,
