This week has been tough! I was making progress with my feet/injuries then had a flare up again so to keep myself from going crazy I have learned to love the bike. A "tri" friend of mine told me "You can ride yourself to a better run but you cannot run yourself to a better ride". I really did not understand the meaning of this at first but now I am starting to get it. So my rides this week were:
Tuesday: 18.2 hilly miles
Wednesday: 11.5 miles with 40% grade incline of hills...Followed up with Tony's WOD 21, 15, 9 sets timed with no rest in between sets. Front squats with bar, burpees, and kettlebell swings..then a Row Complex 1000 meters:rest 3 min, 750 m:rest 2 min, 500m:rest 1:30, 250 meters= DONE!!!!!!
Thursday: 10 minutes of sprints on the Stairmonster and 13.5 hilly miles
Friday: 11 "gut busting" miles that left me speechless and sweaty..Angel joined me half way through this ride so I did another 4.5 hilly miles. We also did a circuit of 50:10 x 5 set, 2 exercises x 2..tons of upper body and core.
Saturday: 20 mile ride with lots and lots of hills! Followed by core work 5 exercises x 2 sets.
All I can say is Please Let Me Run Soon!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
