Workout – W36 (Sep 6th – Sep 12th)
Again, a week with very little sport movement. Just two sessions. I like to do sport during the mornings, and if some morning I can’t, then I fail miserably. Also, I’m sleeping very bad during the last days and I wake up tired and without desire to do anything.
These are my workouts for the past week:
- Monday 6th: Running – 10.20 km – 55 min – 5:24 min/km
I got up at 6:45, and after eating some light food (fruit and some juice), I was to run about 7:15. Well, I started running a little later after heating and stretching, but it was earlier than other days anyway.
The run was from a slower pace to a faster pace. I ended up happy with what I did, a little over 10 km, but at a pace high enough to my conditions. I did the 10k in about 54 minutes, not bad for a training and running at that hour. I think I could do less than 50 minutes easily, having rested and preparing it a bit better. This gives me a good feeling to do a good San Silvestre race (December 31th). Race that will be my first competition. It is 6.5 km, and I can probably go at a pace of 4:30 min/km considering that distance, and with a bit better training than I do now. That’s my goal for December 31th.
- Tuesday 7th: Resting
I had to do some administrative tasks in other city, therefore I lost the morning, and I didn’t anything later.
- Wednesday 8th: Cycling – 31.93 km – 2h 15 min
Not very much to say about this bike ride. Climb to Pulide, non-stop, it took me less time than other times, even taking into account the windy day and the difficulty to ride in this way.
- Thursday 9th: Resting
I had to be in home for some stuff, so I couldn’t do any sport today.
- Friday 10th: Resting
I didn’t do any sport today, but I walked like 7-8 km in the morning. It should count
- Saturday 11th: Resting
Well, today, I didn’t even listen the alarm to wake up. Surely, it played, and I turned off it without realizing it.
- Sunday 12th: Resting
I got up very tired, I wanted to go for a bike ride anyway, but it was raining enough to turn me back. Fail.
Total week 36: Swimming: 0 km – Cycling: 31.93 km – Running: 10.20 km
Next week I will start my Master classes and I’ll have a better understanding of my schedule during the coming months. It will be difficult to ride with the bike in weekdays because when I come home (or very early in the morning) it is very dark. So, biking will be done during weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), probably I am not going to have class the Fridays. Considering these circumstances, I will be running more than one day a week, during weekdays, and also I hope to find some time for going to the pool in weekdays.
I’d like to move forward in my sports training and not lose everything I’ve achieved so far. Let’s see how it goes.
