After a 10hour training weekend ...

Posted Sep 11 2009 4:54pm
After a 10hour training weekend including a half marathon, i am having a pretty solid week a little tired but good. Monday Hoped in the water wit F.A.S.T, i knew they were tapering so i thought it would be a good workout to do. After a 2.5k easy warm-up. I joined Barrett and Alenjandro for a set, i was shattered and useless, Alenjandro is getting ready for his Olympic trials in South America and was doing 15x100m 1. on 135, 1 on 115 and 1 on 1minute. That was meters and he can really fly. I put some paddles on and still didn't make that 1 on 1minute, oh well little cool down, some what recovery and that was it. Later on i did a 1hour run and a spin. My legs were still tired from the weekend but starting to come around. Tuesday- good long ride with 6x5 mins at 270 watts, some good steady state riding, and a run. Later in the day i did a 4.5k swim and it was another good day. Wednesday am a good swim 12x200m on 2:45, and then 3x200m broken for some speed work,a big wu and cool down and it was 5.5k logged. Later on the day i left work early and went to Jacks were i am starting to get some work on my cycling. We did alot of technique, and a hard TT on the COmpu Trainer the Central Park Loop and i blew to peaces. Then we did some motor pacing and a lot of single leg riding 3x1/2mile with 1/2 recovery. Then a big cooldown and 2hours flew by.
Thursday- am 24x100m on different pace times, and a hardkickset, and finishing off the workout a hard 3x100m on 1:20 hitting it. oh well another plus 5k swim. A 1.5hour spin later on at work on my compu trainer and a little run. Finally my legs feel better from the race, which is good because i have a lot of running this weekend.
Friday- Today i did a technical recovery swim, the main set was 15x150, 100as 50right arm, 50left arm, 50 swim. I was tired this am but today is a recovery day to get ready for the weekend, so i am looking forward to the rest of the day to do some work and relax. F.A.S.T was tapering so i had a few sets on my own this week which was fine, but next week i will be back swimming with them in the middle of the week. Other than that, the weather is supposed to be high 70's all weekend so it should be a great weekend of training.
Thanks for reading.
