Workout – W35 (Aug 30th – Sep 5th)
It wasn’t a very productive week in my sport workouts. After the 7 days of the week, I did one session for each sport (swimming, mountain bike and running). I have not started well September, even if I still have many time for sport, it will be more difficult from day 14, when I begin the Master classes. Also, the weather is starting to get worse and that means it will be harder to do routes with the bike.
These are my workouts for the past week:
- Monday 30th: Resting
Well, after the weekend with party in this part of the world, I needed a day more of resting. I did some pending errands, and no sport.
- Tuesday 31th: Running 10.53 km – 1h 02 min – 5:56 min/km
There you have it, my first 10 km running. I’m beginning to get some reliability while running, and although I run only once a week, I already can do something interesting. It could seem a small step for many people, but it’s a big step for me. I am proud of myself
Other interesting information: I run again for asphalt, yes it is harder (and can be worse for injuries), but in the place where I live (and run) it is funnier because you can do different routes, have beautiful landscapes, etc. Here it is difficult to find a good place for running with a softer track (and near home). Also, like the previous week I had some knee pain, but it disappeared the next day too.
- Wednesday 1st: Swimming – 2000 m – 1h 20 min
I was back to the pool after some weeks without serious swimming, and obviously it was a bit complicated. It was difficult to breath after some meters, and, you know, little oxygen in muscles means high heart rate and it means low performance. At the end, I swam 2000 m, not bad at all in these conditions. I used my Swedish goggles for the first time, I need fix it perfectly because now it hurts a bit, but I know that I will find the right fit with a bit of practice.
- Thursday 2nd: Resting
I had to be in home for some stuff, so I couldn’t do any sport today.
- Friday 3rd: Resting
I got up for going to the pool, but I didn’t feel very good, so I went to the bed again. I was a bit dizzy all day, and feeling weird. Who knows why.
- Saturday 4th: Resting
I was better than the day before, but I didn’t do any sport anyway.
- Sunday 5th: Mountain Biking – 27.44 km – 2 h 21 min
After the weird last days, I got up early and I began to pedal. I did a route that I have done previously some times, to the Gorfolí mountain. You know, asphalt road at the start of the route, then the climbing is full of sand and stones, and the final part again is asphalt.
The weather was changing during the morning and while at the start I found a dense fog (and it was very cold and wet), when I began to climb the mountain the sun was shining, and it was hot finally.
Total week 35: Swimming: 2.0 km – Cycling: 27.44 km – Running: 10.53 km
Although the next week I have to do some administrative tasks (it will be a couple of mornings), I hope that at the end it will be a better week than this one, and I can continue improving my physical shape.
