Last run of 2011
Yesterday I did my last run of the year - and it was a tough one! I did a 1 mile time trial on the track so I know my starting point for the speed drills I'll be starting next week. I'm about a minute slower than I'd like to be so I've got a lot of work to do in the next few months!
Here's the workout:
Warm up: slow jog to track (1.4 mi)
1 mi time trial (ie: as fast as I could possibly manage)
Cool down: jog/walk home, squats, sit-ups, and push-ups
Last bike of 2011
The last time I was on my bike was in July when I did the 1/2 ironman with Lydia. Needless to say, I've got a lot of work to do!
Last swim of 2011
Today is gorgeous outside so i decided to go for a swim in my favorite pool. Outside temp = 60, water temp = 80, and I was the first one there - Perfect!!
But while I was taking pictures this lady got in before me. No longer first, but still a great day for a swim.
I swam 1400 yards in almost the same amount of time it took me to do the swim portion of the 1/2 ironman (2400 yards). It got really crowded pretty quickly and I ended up having to share a lane with this lady. So I wasn't going for speed today, and I was stuck behind the slow lady, but still - loooooong way to go before July!!
I guess the moral of the story is - completing an Ironman is not going to be easy. Who knew?!
