So I once again began my interval workout for the 2nd week. It went something like this:
7x30 seconds all out sprint followed by 2 minute recovery. Will only note sprint paces for each.
1 – 8:08 (guess my legs were not ready yet)
2 – 6:07 (better)
3 – 5:56
4 – 5:57
5 – 5:42
6 – 5:48
7 – 6:50 (this one was up a slight hill)
What I do find interesting is that each one was a bit better than last week. Still seems like suffering while I am doing them though…lol.
Bike this week – Tuesday was better than expected but harder than it should have been. My legs were a bit tired but anyone can push through that knowing the ride would last for 31 miles. We rolled out with a group of 10 or so riders. My husband took off within just a few miles with a friend of ours and they rocked a crazy strong pace. I could not have sucked their wheel if I had wanted. In the end I rolled in with two other riders that I began with and we ended up at just over 18mph. I will take it.
Another ride planned for today with a 30 minute run following. This weekend…. well you guessed it…more riding and more running. Rinse and repeat! :)
