Pigman Training Week 15

It's a little comical to put week 15 in the title because I haven't been sharing my workouts all along. But I am in week 15 and I feel like I should denote it somehow. I'm changing up the way I post my workouts to include more details (I really like the way Kim does it so I'm moving more towards that).

Sunday, July 28 - 65 mile bike at Venus de Miles,
      Time: about 5.5 hours including breaks, Speed: ~15.5 mph

Totals - 9 sessions,148.73 miles, 14.6 hours
  • 3 swims, 7000yd, about 2.4 hours
  • 4 rides, 132.05 miles, 10.2 hours
  • 2 runs, 12.7 miles, 2.0 hours
  • This is quite the eye-opener to how many hours I'm spending training.  No wonder I'm freaking tired.
  • My speedwork run on Thursday felt so hard.  I ran to the track and slogged through the repeats while a football team was hosting practice.  I'm going to blame the heat and humidity (even though it wasn't that bad out) for my inability to run faster than a 8min/mile pace.
  • I got to meet a lot of new people at Venus de Miles on Sunday and biked with Amy this week.  Yay for meeting up with people!
  • I saw two weasels last week! One last Sunday (not actually part of this training week) on my bike ride in Iowa and one on my ride Monday night.  The ones I saw were both really dark brown and I wonder if maybe they weren't weasels but martens. I may never know.
