I downloaded my times from my own triathlon on Sunday and here they were:
1650 yd pool swim - 24:00 (did 21s when I was in high school)
33.4 mile bike ride (accidentally because we missed a turn) 2:31
10k run - 1:00:00 (the run was awful and I couldn't motivate)
For Monday, I wanted to get back into some core work and little cardio, so I did some lifting and used the erg machine (rowing) at the gym for 15 minutes. Probably haven't used that thing since erg tests in college! I did about 3000 meters. Thinking about what to do today, I didn't feel like doing anything - not feeling swimming, running is sluggish and I like the spin class on Thursdays and Saturdays so I couldn't motivate to go today. I decided I needed to be kicked in the butt so I went to the track session for speedwork. I haven't done this in a while and it shows. We did 6 x 1000 with 200 recovery. I didn't go all out. It felt like 70% was all I was willing to give since it's been so long and I am running the half marathon this weekend (I think). I am really glad I went and my abs are feeling it - and legs too! I have to make that a part of my week again.
I will probably force myself through the half marathon on Sunday but I'm not feeling it. I haven't missed this race in a long time and love the medals so maybe that will get me through - or my sis running with me? Trying to convince her. I might run under the name "Miranda" - who signed up and isn't running it, so that no one can look up my time : ) Expectations are low. I feel like I dropped the ball on running and have not done enough outside running and it has majorly suffered. Something has gone wrong!
