Rough Week for Training

So this has been one of the worst weeks of training in the past 4 months. Not sure why. Saturday I did go for a 33 mile bike ride and I did 4 miles running on Tuesday morning followed by 3 miles Wednesday morning. The plan was to wake up this morning and hit the pool and then get 5 or 6 miles in, which would have left me feeling not great about the week but at least not unhappy. Not sure what happened but definitely wasn’t me waking up on time. I must not have set my alarm or something (I remember setting it…its possible I accidentally turned it back off before I went to bed.) I don’t really know. But since it was 7am when I woke up, my workout time was long gone. I need about 2 hours to work out plus another hour or so to get ready for work. I try and be at the gym no later than 6am but I really try and get there 5:30 – 5:45.

So 33 miles biking and 7 miles running and that was my week. No swimming. No spinning. I’ll be skiing the next 3 days so no more training. I might have needed an easy week though. My ride and runs all felt wrong to me. I didn’t take any rest after my half marathon. I think my body needed some recovery time. I just can’t let myself continue what I did this week. So next week, its back to closely watching my bed time. Asleep by 11 – 11:30 is just a must.
