resting hr: 60
On todays training schedule was first time to do hill repeats. The workout was warmup and then 12 X 1:00 VO2 Max hill + 2:00 recovery. OHMIGOOOOODNESSSS! At about the 4th one I wanted to die. Izzie's workout was only 6 interval sprints, she was doing on the flats below me. She finished and said she'd do the last 6 hill repeats with me. I really didn't think I was going to make it to 12!! Izzie kicked my butt on the first couple she joined me on...and then it hit her around the same time it hit me. But at that point I had passed through that "death" point into "adaptation" and was able to push hard the last few repeats. I think those workouts will make us GREAT, STRONG cyclists! I'm excited......but oh man does it hurt! Darn you VO2Max.
TVM Swim 11:30am-1pm
I went straight from the cycling workout to Stoneridge mall...in my spandex, yellow sunglasses, and cool cycling socks. SUPER COOL GIRL. I had to buy Yuka's lingerie/bachelorette party gift! Again super cool walking into Victoria Secrets like I was! ha! By TVM swim time...I'm beat! There were 5 of us in lane 1 (thats crowded!). But, that means I can draft off more people and just get lost in the background....which is what I needed today. It was a pretty boring set anyways, so I didn't feel too bad that I did not push it.
