600m.....I feel like a newb.
This week, the oldest daughter is in Tulsa, so daddy has about an hour of free time after work. Yesterday, while at work, I made up a training plan to get me through a 13.1 in mid October....there are a few sprints, a few 13.1s and an OLY in there too. I may not get to all of those, but the OLY and the "Showdown 13.1" are my goals.
Goal for the OLY is 2:45
Goal for the 13.1 is sub-2
Anywho....training plan is a similar set up to my IM plan.
M - Swim
T - Run
W - Swim, Bike
Th - Run
F - Off
Sat - Long bike (or brick)
Sun - Long Run (or brick if not on Sat).
Being Monday, I had 500m on the plan.....but when I got home I had the 'brilliant' idea to run. Well, it was 93 degrees and humid but I went out. I was doing an out and back and went 1.25 then turned around. I got about half way home and felt dizzy and breathing was spastic. Stopped under the little shade there was and got under control. Ran a little more, then walked it in. Should have eased into that....not balls out after no training.
Got home, ate the new sonic hotdog (pretzel bun, cheese, and bacon).....don't judge...I'm a flippin' Ironman.
After the wifey went to bed, headed to swim. I was pumped up....ready for the water. Got to the pool and no one was there!!!! Bonus Time!!!! So I take off. First 100m was great. Second 100m was okay. The final 400m I felt like I was baby giraffe that was thrown into the water......flailing arms, horrible breathing/form, and inconsistent strokes. But you know....I did it.
Tonight is a 4 mile run which I will not be starting until after 9p. :)
