Week 19 of 2014

Goals for Week 19 were these:  Recover from the Half Marathon with some swimming and biking.  Still follow marathon schedule.  Try to get out and run 3 times.  Walk a lot.

Monday:  Body Sculpt, Swam 1600 yards
Tuesday:  Body Sculpt, some walking
Wednesday:  Body Sculpt, some walking..
Thursday Ran 2.46 miles, walked some, felt beat up.
Friday:  Ran 3.02 miles, Elliptical 1 mile, Biked 6.41 miles
Saturday: Ran 8 miles, walked 2 miles
Sunday: Walked 2 miles

Good for Week 19:  I ran 3 times.  I swam once and did a great swimming workout. I biked once.

Bad for week 19:  I didn't run on Tuesday as planned, still felt beat up from the Half Marathon just days before.  I did walk a ton though, just didn't measure the distance.  Forgot the garmin and was down the street by the time I thought about it, it was about 2 miles. 

 Even though I ran 3 times, as my goal was set to do, I didn't run as far as I needed to, or spaced out like I should (in my opinion).  I want to run Tuesday 5, Wednesday 2, Thursday 5-6, Friday Rest, then Saturday long run.  As you can see it didn't work out that way.  As for the biking, I planned on 13-15 miles, but the wind was horribly strong and I turned back way early.  I need to learn to bike in the wind better.  I can do it, but don't like to.   Also, if I don't run, I need to bike or swim instead.  According to Runner's World it says if you don't get in a run, then bike twice as far as you were going to run.  Thus getting in that same amount of cardio for your heart and strength in the muscles in your legs.
