Monday – Recovery day! Nailed it!
Tuesday – 40 minutes of speed play on the trainer, focusing on the the upstroke of pedalling. Clipless pedals are pointless if you only push on the downstroke!
Wednesday – National Running Day, so naturally I went swimming. Speed work in the pool – main set was 10×100 max on 10 seconds rest. Trying to find the balance between kicking and overkicking gets harder the more tired I get. Haven’t done this in a while and thought that I would have lost some speed in the pool after all the focus on running during the winter, but it was pretty solid. Last 3 were a little tough. More rest would have been nice!
Thursday – Hard strides workout workout again. Went a little bit further a little bit faster. So yay!
Friday – Recovery day!! YAY! Two in one week? NAILED IT AGAIN.
Saturday – Took a dip with some of #TeamSkyFit in Lake Ontario at Sunnyside Beach. Holy crap that was cold. Like, cold on my exposed flesh to the point of painful. Glad I got in and did some swimming in my wetsuit before next week, but, geeeeze that was cold!
Sunday – Short Anaerobic Brick workout. Sweaty and gross and definitely anaerobic.
