Jan 30 workout

After not going to the gym this week I was a bit worried, but felt great. I guess the rest helped. My ab workout is coming together nicely, and I really like doing my entire weight workout at one time. The pool water was very warm today, and it made swimming hard, so I was surprised I did a 100 in 1:05, especially since I didn’t feel fast.
10 min on the bike at level 5, 100 rpm
- 4 miles; 1.5% grade; 43 min (10 min run, 1 min walk)
- Left shin, inside, felt sore while running
- Left hamstring sore
- Feet feeling a bit warm, need to watch this as miles increase
- I wore the maroon REI shirt, not scratchy like the other one
10 min of stretching
100 s, 100k
200 s, 100k
300 s, 100k
400 s, 100k
500 s, 100k
2x100 fast swim on 2:00; did 1:08 and 1:05
2x100 kick on 3:00
100 easy
2500 total


  1. You did 100 yds in the exact amount of time it takes me to do 50 yds. I need to figure out the whole swim set thing instead of just swimming laps. I'm guessing that's the key to getting faster? Right now, I swim every lap the same speed. You are an excellent swimmer!

  2. Hi Mark,
    I just noticed that Chad's blog was finally updated! Thanks for the heads up. So you live in Stillwater. I am running the Stillwater half in May. Are you running in either the half or the full?

    Wow, looks like you have a hard workout schedule. I need help with the core and abs and unfortunately, I am not a good swimmer:)
