the week - (the weak?)

Lovely graph eh?

I have started logging my training on

The graph is a nifty byproduct.

By the numbers a pretty good training week… up close…  not so much

Monday – good training day run felt strong

Tuesday – really good…

Wednesday – really good running day

Thursday and Friday – nothin'  too much work and a double sty in my eye

It looked like I'd been punched in the face.

Saturday – okay… it went like this:

&1 -Self-Spin 30 minutes
&2 - Spin class 55 minutes
&3 - ;Stairmill 25 min
&4 - Uphill treadmill 25 minutes
&5 - Then just before dark another quick 45 minute bike ride.

And had this very nice bottle of wine:

Sunday – set out at 0545 with my pack.  Did a walk/run for 3 hours 15 miles legs hurting a bit by the end.  Never felt easy…  I never felt good… not a single mile faster than 10:45…  just a slog… 

Good news I guess…  I didn't really feel too wiped out after…  and I feel good today.

Man, any training is more than I've been doing recently! I hope that eye figures itself out.

SInce I lost my Garmin and bought a Timex, I have no choice but to use Training Peaks, I dont like I need to pay for the good data that is free else where, but I am stuck there for awhile, but I admit, Like you, I like that nifty little graph

it's all about pace said...
