2 weeks of workouts

I didn't do a recap last Sunday because we were celebrating our anniversary, but these recaps are almost more for me and rethinking everything than anything else, so I'm going to write out last week's workouts as well as this past week.
The miles are a little off for both week's totals because there were quite a few minutes put into spin bikes and spin classes that didn't count for mileage.

July 15-July 21
 
Monday: Rest Day. Had I thought about this strategically I wouldn't have taken this as a rest day, but after two hard days the Saturday and Sunday before, I was just thinking about how wonderful rest was going to feel.

Tuesday: Ryde for Life Class. I had a Groupon to use and was road biked out after a long weekend before, so I tried out this class. The bikes are the kind that move with you as opposed to being stationary, but I didn't like how much more focus there was on core and arms than normal spin classes. I went for the legs!

Wednesday: I swam 1850 yards then ran for 35 minutes with a 10 minute run/1 minute walk pattern.

Thursday: I met up with Jesica and Beth to ride the Pinellas Trail. We discovered at the area we were riding that it had an intersection literally every 200 yards, so we detoured to the bridges and beaches and had a great time! We rode a little over 25 miles.

Friday was a travel day.

Saturday: I was going to swim and run, but I ended up just running because the hotel pool wasn't conducive to swimming. I ran 4.2 miles in 40 minutes.

Sunday: The gym where my parents live had a spin bike set up in front of a tv with DVDs, so I did "riding through Ireland" and enjoyed the workout more than I thought I would. That was 50 minutes of pretty serious spinning. Then I did a brick run and did 2.16 miles in 20 minutes. 

July 22-July 28
 
This week was my smallest week in a while...

Monday: 1 hour spin class at Thrive in Chattanooga.

Tuesday: Another 1 hour spin class at Thrive.

Wednesday: Rest day because I was visiting family and friends and we did a bunch of stuff.

Thursday: 3.25 miles on the mountain. It may have been a poor decision with the triathlon two days later, but I wanted to give it a try as I grew up here and hadn't ever run the neighborhood before. Here's the elevation:
 

Friday: I swam 500 yards to shake everything out for the following day!

Saturday: I did my first sprint triathlon!! It was a .25 mile swim, 10 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run. I'll post my race recap tomorrow.

Sunday: After realizing how much running fitness I had lost, I really wanted to get 5 miles in today. I ran 5 miles in 47:27. I was only supposed to go 45 minutes, but I needed to see 5 miles for my own sanity's sake.

Linkup with me and Kat!

Way to be! I'm too nervous to do a tri, the swimming scares me! If I could swim in the gulf, I'd probably get some motivation. Newest follower!
