Mission Monday

Let's recap last weeks training for my upcoming missison- Tri Del Sol Duathlon. It's this Saturday! Freaking out over here.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday I taught Spinning classes. Monday and Wednesday were hard ones. We did 17 sprints. Complete craziness. My legs were pretty much useless after Wednesday. I also taught Totally Toned on Monday and Wednesday at noon.

On Tuesday I performed my running club speed workout by myself. It consisted of a 2 mile warm up followed by (8) 400 meter sprints. In between sprints I had to jog 400 meters as to not let my heart rate drop too low. It was killer. I did a 1.5 mile cool down. Later that evening after teaching my cardio class I went on a nice 70 minute bike ride. I was sure to take it easy and not add too many speed intervals this time. I know that I need more time on the bike! I ended up getting a flat tire at some point! I am not sure when, but I rode the last 5 miles or so on a tube that had a slow leek. Ooops!

On Thursday I was able to make it to my favorite cardio kickboxing class. I missed it so!

Early Friday morning I did a run, bike, run session. I did half of what my duathlon will consist of. I ran 1 mile, biked 9 miles and ran for 2.25 miles. It was a good one. I gained some much needed confidence after this workout. I know the actual race will be much more difficult, but this was easier than it was the first time I tried it and my intervals were way shorter too.

Saturday was my long run. I made it 12 miles in very humid weather. It was really hard.

Sunday I went for a nice 5 mile jog; the weather was just too perfect to not to do something although I should have taken a day off.

I did not get on my bike as much as I would have liked, but I hope the 3 spin sessions will make up for that. All in all I am as prepared as I am going to be for Saturday. I hope anyway!

Hi! This is Annie (aka Mama Dweeb) on your brown team for body after baby!

Just leaving a quick note to say hi and that I'll be cheering you on! I will also be reading your blog for encouragement and ideas, as you seem to have more experience than me at working out!

I am so glad you are on my team :)
