Hooray! I can breathe normally again!
This whole past week was a wash. I was sick for several days and it was just about all I could do to drag myself to work and then home again. I even ended up going home sick on Thursday because I could barely stand upright without getting dizzy. It was bizarre.
But I’m feeling much better today!
Tonight I figured since I could breathe again and the room was no longer spinning, I would head down to the treadmill and just run whatever felt alright. I ended up doing a nice 8 mile run. I could easily have gone longer except that my hip was getting tight, so I foam rolled instead while the dogs tried to climb all over me and lick me.
So now that I’m all recovered, the plan for this week is:
- Monday – Swim 2000 yards, bike 30 miles
- Tuesday – Swim 2000 yards, run 6 miles
- Wednesday – Bike 30 miles, run 6 miles (possibly a brick workout)
- Thursday – Swim 2000 yards, run 6 miles
- Friday – REST DAY
- Saturday – Swim 2500 yards, run 16 miles
- Sunday – Bike 40 miles (heart rate zone 1 – active recovery ride)
I may decrease the distances for the bike – I’ll have to see how long they’re taking. I don’t mind being on the trainer for a while, but for a zone 2 ride, I usually end up doing just over 15 mph. So it might be a bit much to have a two hour trainer ride after work during the week.
Looking forward to a healthy week of training! I’m feeling good about the upcoming marathon. I’ve been doing well with my training, so hopefully race day will go well too. You really never know.
