    Run work tonight was aerobic repeats. 10min warmup, then 4 x 11 minute blocks (8 min of high end aerobic paced running with 3min of steady paced recovery between intervals). Ended with a 10 minute cooldown jog.

    I felt good about being able to do each 8minute block slightly faster than the previous one. This type of workout has really helped me with speed endurance in past years. Hope that's the case this season.

    Boring the reading audience with the usual (but posting it anyway to help keep myself accountable) :

    30'-ish yoga - stretch - foam roll.
    5311m machine row, 2:32.7 avg pace, 17 spm avg, HR mostly below 70% reserve, only maybe about 51" above it, towards the end (somewhere in the last 500m at 2:32.1, 15spm).
    About 33' core exercises.

    Ran 6km. I'd hoped to run to 8, but things didn't work out at all today. My HR dropped down by 15bpm once I ran into the wind after 4.5km, and it was a struggle from then on. Rubbish dysautonomia. Still was a nice run :)

    30 minutes of weights in the garage (8 sets of supersetting - every set is something for legs, chest, shoulders, rest until HR drops back down, repeat), then I did rowing intervals immediately following (10 minutes, 5 minutes, 5 minutes). HR was consistently at 90% max or over for the rowing portion. Super tough to row like that immediately following a lift (and my normally average pace becomes slightly slower as a result), but I feel I'm gradually getting stronger.

    Roughly 800 calories on the hour.

    I got a climb in at a gym. It was good, I was in reasonable form.

    I also managed a few walks over the day, so I'm on over 20,000 steps. Not bad for a workday.

    Another walk... I’ve been recovering over the last week with walks and rowing. Pulled hamstring and old ankle injury acting up. Should be ready for a decent jog on Sunday. If weather is good it will be outdoors.

    Alright hoping on the rower.. you all have a good weekend...

    Went for a nice early morning jog. Took a break from the gym and weight training.
  • DjproulxDjproulx Member Posts: 2,287 Member Member Posts: 2,287 Member
    Hour on the bike trainer outside on my patio. Workout was a muscle tension focus, not an aerobic effort.
    10 minutes of warmup/endurance power, then 3 x (10min at 175w while in a big gear, and only pedaling at 55-60rpm/ 4min at 135w recovery). The idea is to load the legs similar to the forces you'd get in the weight room. finished with 10 min endurance/cooldown.

    Long ride and transition run tomorrow. May take the bike off the trainer and out on the road.

    I felt like I got in some good work today. Took the option to ride outside instead of on my trainer. It was a nice sunny day, but I fought a cold wind during the entire ride. Ride was 2:45:00, or just about 45 miles at a 16.3mph average.

    Once I jumped off the bike, I took a 3 minute transition (shirt change, hat, running shoes, grabbed a gel) and right into an easy 25 minute run. Again, no big push, just a 10ish minute/mile pace to get the legs used to running after almost 3 hrs in hip flexion while on the bike.

    Tomorrow's fun is a long run and a pool swim. 7 weeks to race day.
