I think I enjoyed training when I wasn't working full time. That being said, I completed my Day #10 workout with a little less optimism.
IMLP Training Day # 10 - Run 30 min Z2, Swim: 2500 m
My husband has officially told me he will be late everyday until 22nd. I guess it is okay. I mean, usually he is a 4 o'clock husband, but every 4 years, we have to deal with a silly little thing called: Inauguration. I know, its pretty important but when it affects my training, I get grumpy.
Since my husband was late and once again I had a run in Zone 2, I tried to run again with my favorite HR Zone 2 keepers - my kids. I didn't think they would come, but they did. By .4 of a mile, the complaining started. I realized that having not really kept up with their running since the Fall, having them go out and run 1.4 miles yeaterday, did not bode well for a 3 miles run today. After .6 miles, I had to head back home and firgure out how I was going to get 20 more minutes in. I decided to run loops, sat them up with the homework and a candycane (bribery) and set off to finish with my phone.
Of course, I ran higher than Z2, and after 10 minutes I called home. Kiera answered, said they were fine and I kept running. After 5 additional minutes, I called again and Brock's sentiments hit the nail on the head: "Mom stop calling and run already!" Pretty cute! So I finished a 30 min run, probably mostly in Zone 3.
With my husband still not home at 6, I was started to get worried that I would not have any energy for a late swim. When he finally arrived, I bolted.
Workout was: 300 wu, 8x50 drill, 4 x 125 @20 secs, 4 x 175 @30 secs, 4 x 125 @20 secs. 8x50 drill, 200 cd (well this was actually last weeks workout that I read wrong, but I still did 2500 m)
The pool was exhaustingly crowded. A silly Russian guy (no he told me he was Russian, no judgement here) wearing a tight speedy would not stop talking to me. And a really really slow but nice guy kept me from really getting into a groove. I think I hated everything but the 5 minute hot tub receovery.
*BTW: no children were hurt during this workout. They are legally allowed to stay home by themeselves, I just don't like doing it. :-)
