Is it fall yet?

This week was heavy on the bike/run because I’m not allowed in the pool yet. I shifted my swim time and added it onto bike/swim and tried to keep the total workout time for the week about the same. My eyes are healing well though, and feel closer to normal (i.e. not dry) every day. First thing in the morning and late at night is the worst.

Sunday: 30 minutes on bike trainer (estimated 8-8.5 miles). At just a couple days after LASIK, I wanted to get some time in but take it easy. I don’t have the special gadget that allows my watch to tell my speed/distance on the trainer yet (surprise, surprise, its not included), so I have to guess.

Monday: 55 minute run on treadmill (6 miles), and 25 minutes on bike (8.25 miles). Part of this treadmill run brought to you by: Nickelodeon. Now that Miles is in a toddler bed, he sometimes gets irritated when he can’t get out of the room and pounds on the door. I guess I can’t blame him, but it wasn’t anything a little cup of cereal and a cartoon couldn’t fix. 🙂

Tuesday: Tri group ride/run. Ride 1:18 (23.72 miles), run 29 minutes (3 miles). One of my worst runs, speed wise, in awhile. The air just felt sticky and stagnant and it was horrible.

Wednesday: Ride 60 minutes (estimating 16-17 miles). I had planned to take the twins to the group spadework on the track and just do the best I could speed wise while pushing them, but once I got there, someone discovered I had a flat. And not just a flat, but a total tire blowout. So I ended up on the bike trainer after they went to bed.

So glad I bought this thing!

Thursday: rest day. Legs still tired from Tuesdays group ride (it was crazy windy).

Friday: Run 25 min with 1×800 speed (7:13) and 1×400 speed (6:40) – total 3 miles. Ride 30 min on trainer (estimated 8 ish miles). It was an EARLY morning to get this one in. Up and at ’em at 5:20, which i thought was going to be really rough, but actually turned out to not be so bad. I mean, not bad for 5:20 am.

Saturday: 52 minute run pushing the twins (5.5 miles). It was humid. It was foggy, but you know what there wasn’t? Fog on my glasses because I’M NOT WEARING THEM ANYMORE! WIN!



Swim: (1:45)/ none

Bike: (3:07)/ 3:38 62 (ish) miles

Two week LASIK follow up Wednesday so hoping to get the all clear to swim at least once this week. *crosses fingers*
