Rest Day

Sunday, 10 July 2011

Happy Birthday to Josh, my big 17 year old (where does time go?)!

The weather was awful, with really high winds, including a tornado and hail/thunder/lightening storms the day before so after lying bed listening to it for a while I decided to hit the gym for a spin class rather than the planned LSD bike ride, and then do my 5km on the treadmill.

Spin Class: The usual, good sweat, good fun, class.

5km – Easy: On the treadmill – nothing exciting to say – I did add a bit of speed for the last couple of k because I was bored stupid, but otherwise just a nice slow, easy 5km.

11km Hills:  Up the Maungatooks, and over the top.  Still windy, and got hailed on heading back … good excelerating run though!
1:12:03 (6:29/km)

LSD 40km Bike Ride:  To make up for missing Sunday! Windy, some rain, yucky weather … but done!
2:10:47 (Pace – 19.6/km)

Personal Trainer session – Yeah, he made things hurt again 😉

11km – Marathon Pace: Hit the pace, and felt good – went down the river for a change of scenery, its always a bit harder to stick to the right pace off road, but I managed it, wind and all 😉
1:05:13 (5:49/km)

13km LSD: Cut back week this week – so just a “short” one, felt good running slow and easy.
1:20:32 (6:09/km)

All in all, yet another good week.  I had a fiddle with my diary and training programme today to make sure I was going to fit in the time needed for the LSD bike rides as they reach the 3-4-5hr mark, scary stuff!  One day … one week, at a time 🙂
