Workout Log

For as long as I have been writing this little blog of mine, I have been training for something (i.e. Augusta 70.3, Savannah, Houston). As a result, it made sense for me to keep to a weekly recap of my workouts with short descriptions of what I did, for how long and what the paces were. Honestly, this was more for me to keep track than anything, but I like to follow other bloggers’ training schedules to see if I can learn something, so I figure others might like to see what my training looks like too.

Now that I am not training for anything specific, I don’t really see a great deal of benefit (for me or anyone else) in continuing to post weekly recaps. Yet, I set some pretty specific goals for mileage and workouts for the year, so I would like a way to keep track. I do not use Daily Mile and don’t really know if I want to and I also don’t think I would keep up with a spreadsheet.

So that leaves me with a dilemma (I know, #firstworldproblems). But for now I think I will do a summary every 2 weeks of what my workouts/mileages were then I can scan back through later in the year to see how things went! We’ll see how this works out…

January 16 – 22

  • Monday – Rest & Travel Home from Houston
  • Tuesday – Rest/Recovery
  • Wednesday – Rest/Recovery
  • Thursday – 45 minutes on elliptical watching Revenge. Upper body weights, abs, stretching
  • Friday – ~5 mile run w/Char (8:49 min/mile)
  • Saturday – Rest/Recovery
  • Sunday – 4.25 mile run w/Walter (9:01 min/mile)
Total = 9.25 miles run

January 23 – 29

  • Monday – 5:30 a.m. Masters Swimming – 3000 yds
  • Tuesday – Rest, 20 minute walk w/Brad & dogs
  • Wednesday – Greenville Track Club Speed Workout – 4.75 miles
  • Thursday – 5:30 a.m. Masters Swimming – 1850 yds. (600 swimming + 1250 kicking/breast stroke)
  • Friday –  5:30 a.m. Spin w/Char – 21 miles
  • Saturday – 6 mile run w/Amy (yay! for old running partnerships re-kindled after training!) (9:02 min/mile)
  • Sunday – A million trips to and from Lowe’s/Home Depot and strength training by lifting way too many 12′ composite decking boards.

Totals:

  • Run = 10.75 miles
  • Swim = 4800 yds.
  • Bike = 21 miles

After a solid week of taking it easy on everything followed by a week of very light running + decent cross-training, I am pleased with my recovery and the way my body feels after Houston. My legs are still slightly heavy/fatigued, but no twinges or aches. Now if I can get this shoulder thing figured out, I will be good to go!

    Glad you’re feeling so good 2 weeks out! I hope you keep doing weekly recaps, whether or not you’re in training mode, I like reading them. 🙂

  2. I like reading recaps, regardless of whether or not someone is training for something! It’s fun to see what others are doing and I think you can still learn from them 🙂
