Weekly Training: Feb 11 - Feb 17

Swimming: 3,000 yards
Bike: 44 miles
Run: 26 miles
Weights: 2 sessions

Totals: 71 miles / 10 hours, 2 minutes

A nice ramp up in miles but also a ramp up in weights during my strength training.  Sam killed my arms this week.  Wednesday/Thursday nights were a little restless with how sore they were.

That being said, I'm definitely seeing some benefits of this weight training.  Monday night I did 7 miles on the treadmill by starting out with 8:30 pace and each mile I sped it up and finished at a 7:20 pace.  I had no issues with that pace and it felt good.

Thursday night I sped around the neighborhood for 8 miles at a 7:38 pace while hitting some decent hills.  Once again, feeling great the entire way.  The leg work has helped increase the strength of my legs so they can catch up with my cardio. The core work (directly or secondary) is making it easier for keeping my form.

I got my first trainer ride in on my new bike on Wednesday!  Looking forward to finding that day to take it outside for a spin!

The lovely card my lovely wife made me for Valentine's Day!

Love it!
