You can read about previous days of Trimommy Training Camp here and here. Days 4, 5, and 6 went off without a hitch if you don't count the cold-catching I did! Day 4 was a 3k swim, day 5 was a 2 hour ride followed by a 30 minute transition run, both of which took place outside! Yay!! The first long ride of the season outdoors was a bit chilly, but fun. It goes by so much faster than when I am on the trainer. Day 7 was today and included teaching a spin class this morning where my plan was to take it easy...you know what they say about plans. Oh, well. I followed it up with a strength session, and when I got home took a very leisurely walk with the boys, so we could go hear the symphony of frogs that happens each year near the golf course by our house.
Here are the numbers:
Swim: 2h 6m 5100 yds
Bike: 9h 17m 8s 106.03 mi (mileage does not include spin classes)
Run: 3h 36m 55s 19.62 mi
Ice baths: 3(!!! and my legs are still thanking me)
Total: 16h 3s
I'm beat! This is my biggest training week ever! Last year my biggest week during half-iron training was 14 hours. Just to put things in perspective, though, Bree Wee put in 30 hours last week! Um, yeah, that's a lot of swim, bike, and run!!
The beauty of it all, though, is despite the fact that I am tired and have a cold, I loved every minute of it!! I am so blessed to be able to do things like this! What kind of crazy life do I have where I can do so many things that make me so happy! I will remember to be thankful every day for this very thing!! One last thing for today:
Remember when you were a kid you didn't think of running as running?
