resting hr: 60

soreness/fatigue: 3

Cycle 8:30am-10:15am

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.

total: 20miles

TVM Swim 11:30am-1pm

I went straight from the cycling workout to Stoneridge 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.

total: 3200yds

  1. Which hill did you do your repeats on?
    Very nice of Izzie to suffer along side you. What a great friend. I would have just stood at the top and counted for you. ;)
