Today I did everything I wanted to in the way of training. I feel so accomplished!
This morning I got up bright and early and hit the pool. I did a solid 2500 yards (2286 metres) in the pool. I just did intervals of 500 with a 250 warm-up and 250 cool-down. Simple and easy is the way for me.
This afternoon, we had a killer run session with the tri club. 26 second 100 metre intervals that went like this:
300, 400, 500, 400, 300 rest 5 minutes x3
I ended up doing the second and third 500m interval at 28s 100m. My running coach was a total hard-ass and wouldn’t let me do the entire third interval at 28. But my legs seriously felt like shite. It felt like they could not stretch and my stride was so short on the 500m intervals. It hurt a lot. I guess that’s the point, but it sucked! I have to remember the quote “In pain there is truth.”
Now my lungs feel super oxygenated, which I absolutely love. I feel like I’m completely pure or something.
