Oops, slid a bit. Got strep throat last week (seriously, when is it going to end? I've had enough of being sick!) so that really put a damper on the whole training thing. The week before that I rode and got a ski in but I can't remember the details now. Aside from being sick there has been much life craziness. Here is what my heart rate monitor says for saturday (01/29/2011):
Trainer - 75 min
5 x 2 (162/169, 165/173). HR getting up there a little more. I had limited time to ride so only did the 2 intervals.
I managed to squeeze another ride in after that Saturday before the sick took over, no data on that one though. Went to visit friends on the weekend where my only intervals were running up the steep toboggan hill repeatedly
My legs were definitely sore after though.
Oh got some new shoes last weekend at a sale. They fit much better, the ones I have had forever were great shoes but were too wide (meant for man-feet I think) and my feet moved around too much.
Anyway, going to get back to the logging. Strep throat gone, feeling pretty healthy and I even did my first downward dog in ages where my sinuses didn't feel like they were about to explode with mucous. Whoopah! Tuesday 08/01 - Trainer (45 min):
I decided to ease myself back into training mode with a 45 min ride. Kept it fairly spinny but did a ramp up exercise that lasted about 15 minutes. Actually feeling pretty good again. Did some core exercises after I was done. New shoes feel good.
Life craziness should start to see some resolution by the end of the month. Hopefully.
