Yeah I am still here! a 60 hour work week, with 15 hours of commuting and 4:00am starts have taken their toll, not a blog post, blog comment, Tweet or Facebook Status update in a week, I did manage to update Daily Mile thanks to Electric Miles. Anyway here’s this week’s deets!
1/8/11 1000m swim 32:00, steady, alternate 100m BS and 100m FS, focused on form and breathing
1/9/11 Run 7:20m 1:01 TM Nice and steady Z2. The joy of a treadmill it's very controllable, nothing on "plan" so I stuck to Z2 @1% grade for 60 mins and with a negative split, 8:82, 8:49, 8:49, 8:56, 8:29, 8:36, 8:50 slowed up get in zone at the end surprisingly Z1 34% Z2 28% and Z3 36%. Was spiking at start and had drift to the end, got thru 18oz of Nuun
1/10/11 Run 5:60m 45:00 RD Easy run left knee a little sore, just followed my nose around the neighborhood
1/11/11 Elliptical 4:48m, had no idea how far I travelled till I had stopped, I had ripped a movie to my iphone and was watching that...park brain, engage legs, elevation at 10 and resistance at 7. 20 mins iPhone yoga in the evening ...very tight hips!
1/12/11 Run 5:6m 50:00 TM nothing much to say about this just got on with it
1/13/11 Elliptical 4:20m 45:00 Left knee a little sore so nice and steady, trying to to keep up a steady pace elevation at 10 and resistance at 7
1/14/11 Elliptical 3:25m 35:00 Crazy busy at work but managed to sneak out at lunch, elevation at 10 and resistance at 7
So as you can see a lightish week, I managed to keep moving…just! The good news is I have dropped 5.4lbs in two weeks, it’s a steady sustainable loss, which means it should stay off. I am still photographing my food (I am a bit behind in posting though) and logging on loseit.com. I should finish Running Natural this weekend and then start the transition plan…that’s the plan at least!
Tomorrow, Saturday is a rest day and Sunday is 13.1 Los Angeles, I am aiming for a conservative 1:40-1:45, I raced this last year and blew up around mile 12 so this year I hope to have a better showing!
Anyway that’s it for now, have a great weekend!
