Two-a-day Thursday


I am feeling a little hardcore with two, double workout days this week. I am feeling a little hardcore, but a WHOLE LOT tired.

I don't have class on Thursday nights, but I do monitor the after school homework center on Thursday afternoons, so I have to do some creative scheduling to get both workouts in. I am not sure if I will be able to keep this up, but we will see.

Summary:

Run: I left school at lunch ran 6 miles (1:05:33, 10:54 min/mi pace) on the bike trail and made it back in time for Homework Center. Boo yah! It was a nice run. My legs felt pretty good. Probably because I took an unscheduled rest day on Wednesday. I have a tight schedule on Wednesdays and I was just bone tired and bailed on the 50 minute bike ride that was scheduled.

Swim: About 1500 yards at my pre-masters swim class. He began class by saying, "Tonight we are doing a real workout. I hope you brought water!" Yikes. I kept up pretty well. The drills are exhausting to me and my shoulders are pretty tired today.

It must be so wonderful to run at lunch! I'm lucky to get time to pee! It's 3:45am and I just got in from work about 15 minutes ago-needless to say it was another 14.5 hour day for me. I will be sleeping in today! I get whats left of saturday and sunday off and then I'm right back at it!!! Fun times!

Hard core indeed! Well done. Where did you get your training plan? I know you're in that tri group - but are you following/modifying their plan or doing your own thing from start to finish?
