Nov 2nd - Nov 8th: Training Ramblings

The week didn't start off too well, as I came down with a heavy cold. So much for getting a longer ride in on Sunday morning, typical! It was a weekend off from 'cross racing and we decided to tick off some of the house projects while we had the chance.  I did manage to get an hour on the rollers with the powercranks, the longest ride yet on them and I came off with jelly legs.....the first time that has happened in a while!

In the end the week was pretty consistent and I was able to hit the weekly goal of 8 hours even with the cold which was still lingering around at week's end.  As you can see in terms of splits between the sports it was relatively even, that will gradually change once 'cross season is over and can get some longer rides in over the weekends.

Hopefully the cold is now done for the winter :-)

The good element of this week was that I was able to get my first decent treadmill workout done.  The running legs are slowly coming back after a few easy weeks in September and the treadmill workout (ramp to lactate threshold) was the first time they had some 'pep' in recent efforts.

Obviously the bad from this week was the cold and missing out on the longer endurance ride......

My weekly swimbike, and run totals:

Total: 89 Miles / 8 hours 01 minutes
Swim: 5,370 yards / ~3.05 miles / 1 hours 50 minutes
Bike: 63 miles / 3 hours 30 minutes
Run: 22.6 miles / 2 hours 40 minutes
