Training log - Week ending 4/29/12

This week was 43 miles of “real running” and 15.5 “miles” pool running, plus 2500 yards of swimming breathing drills.  Training log is here.

Not much to say. Did a workout too hard on Tuesday. Raced on Sunday. Post race, I was debating whether I’m getting sick. I have a mild sore throat and cough (could be from strained breathing during race), a sore body (could be race), and am quite fatigued (could be race). And a headache. Which might just be a headache. And then I went to yoga, and felt much better. Fingers crossed.


Monday: In the morning, 55 minutes of easy poolrunning for “5.5 miles” and then 1500 yards of swimming breathing drills. Foam-rolling and stretching at night.

Tuesday: In the morning, 12 miles including a pyramid workout of 400, 800, 2x1200, 800, 400, followed by 2x200 - splits were 1:24, 2:54, 4:17, 4:15, 2:50, 1:24, 36, 37. (ran the 1200s too fast, and so struggled through the 800 and the 400. Followed with injury prevention work and 15 minutes of shakeout pool-running. Floor barre and foam rolling at night.
