Workout 1: Run @ 75% max HR. 1 hour. 8.14 miles. 7:22 pace. Ave Hr: 143.
Today's run was really good. My legs felt great, and I was comfortable at a 7:22 pace. Toward the end my legs got a little fatigued, so that combined with my heart rate climbing from the heat and my perceived effort was greater than the beginning but not bad. I never had to dig deep and had plenty left in the tank the whole time.
Workout 2: Swim. 1:15. 4500 yards.
The past few weeks we've been going up to Devil's Lake on Wednesdays for an open water swim. I'm heading up there Friday evening with a friend, so I decided to stick to the pool today. I went straight to the Y after work to get my workout in so I'd have some time to relax after dinner.
Today's workout was pretty easy. I figured I might be tired from my run so I scheduled a distance workout. No hard intervals. Just distance at a moderate, comfortable pace.
4x1000 with 1 minute rest
I swam all of the 1000s in 15:25-15:40, a 1:32-1:34 pace. A while ago that was my 1000 yard PR, but today it was an easy, comfortable pace. I'm not as fast as I want to be in the pool, but I'm happy with the progress I'm making this year.
Overall, today was a good training day. I had a solid run, and while my swim was nothing special I got in some decent volume so I'm happy about that.
Today's Total: 2 hours 15 minutes
Weekly Total: 6 hours 47 minutes
Tomorrow: Brick workout. Tempo bike, short easy run.
