Monday – Short swimming pull workout, but had 3 100s that were surprisingly fast. My arms were ready to go fast!
Tuesday – XSNRG workout – 5×4 minutes with 2 minutes recovery on the Sunnybrook Lower flats. Super chilly and my legs were cold the whole time. Went too fast on number 2 and paid the price on 3 and 4, but rebounded on number 5.
Wednesday – Hour on the bike. While I still don’t enjoy riding inside on the trainer, it is becoming easier mentally each time. Hammered the hard parts while watching Netflix. Played a good game of fetch before hand so I didn’t get barked at as I rode 🙂
Thursday – Lydiard Hill Drills again. Last time I did this, we had a blizzard and I did this in a foot of fresh powder. This time, we had a blizzard and I did this in 4 inches of fresh powder. At least it was a little better? The struggle was less! Bounding up without firm footing is tough!
Friday – Bike Sprints! Short workout, but really got the wheels (wheel?) turning. Had a lot of fun
Saturday – Off day! Took the dog for long walkies and did lots of laundry!
Sunday – First long run of the marathon build process – 16 K nice and easy in the park. There were a couple slow parts due to conditions (ice and snow) but it was pretty good. Cold, but when I got moving and surrounded by trees there wasn’t much wind and it was a good day. I was pretty happy about it, and then I realised that a couple weeks from now my long run is going to be double this long run and that kind of scared me. Then I went home and ate all the food. And then I went to a Super Bowl party and ate all their food.
Total Time: 5:49
