Monday – Injury Prevention exercises – focus on hip flexors and glutes.
Tuesday – 50 minute ride focusing on cadence. My cadence is generally really low, while it feels like its high. Working on it makes my legs feel like jelly.
Wednesday – Power at the gym, and then 6K of running hills. I’ve done this specific hill workout about 5 times, and it never feels better, but every time I’m a little faster and a little stronger!
Thursday – HIIT on the bike trainer due to rain. Lots of speed play and high cadence. SUPER SWEATY. I’m not a lover of the bike, but I thought this one was fun!
Friday – 40 minutes open water with a friend with me on her paddleboard. Uneventful and a bit boring. Swam into the same stick twice (going back and forth in the swimming area). Arm still feels wonky from Welland Half.
Saturday – BRICK!!! 26K ride followed by 6.5K run, with hill sprints at the end. I love getting my workout done before 8am, because then I just get to chill out for the rest of the day.
Sunday – Went and did the North Shore Challenge swimming race so that I could do my open water swim with people instead of on my own. Recap is HERE.
Total Time: 7:14
