Week in Training

Another good solid week, even got a nice long ride in.  Thought I'd be too sore for running on Sunday after Saturday's long ride but it turned out to be a great run, no knee problems or any residual soreness.  Would have liked to have one more short run but with the longer bike mileage maybe it's for the best.

I experimented with wearing fins and swimming in the fastest lane on Friday.  Lots of fast people were there and I had to struggle to keep up even with the fins.  I was able to keep up on the pull set and did the drills without fins so I did about 1150 yards of the 2850 yard set without fins.  It was fun and kind of interesting.  I felt like I was working hard to keep up but my arms weren't tired afterwards.  Don't think I want to do this every week but maybe every other week.  It is good to feel what it feels like to go fast.

Mr. No-limpian had another limp free week.  He's up to 2 miles of walking on leash.  This week I'll take him on some short runs and try to get in some off leash running towards the end of the week then try him on some jumps and weaves the following week.  The agility field is dry just now but I want to give him another week of healing just to be sure.  He's still got plenty of muscle mass despite the rest.  Aside from all the conditioning he gets I think he runs agility in his sleep.

Swim:  7450 yards/3 hours

Mountain bike (on dirt roads): 35 miles/3 hours, 20 mins.

Run:  10.1 miles/2 hours, 25 mins.

Total training time: 8 hours, 45 mins.
