Workout – W37 (Sep 13th – Sep 19th)
Well, it was a better week than the last two ones. I did four sport sessions, two times swimming, one running, and one cycling. The ideal week would be six sessions in total, with two of each sport, and one resting day. But, anyway, I think I’m back on track after the last month where I’ve been lazier.
These are my workouts for the past week:
- Monday 13th: Resting
Rest day, for not special motive.
- Tuesday 14th: Running – 8.18 km – 47 min – 5:46 min/km
I was a little hasty, and I didn’t want to get very tired today (I ran at 7:30), so I did a little less than the last times. Good feelings, I didn’t run as fast as I could, but ended quite proud with this run.
- Wednesday 15th: Swimming – 2.0 km – 1h 04 min
First time in the pool after 2 weeks (or practically third time in the last month), so I didn’t feel very good. I got tired pretty soon, and the rest of the workout wasn’t as productive because of this. Anyway, I managed to do 2000m, combining series of 50 and 100 m. Most of them to crawl, but about 500m in backstroke and breaststroke.
- Thursday 16th: Resting
I did want to go to the swimming pool today instead of Friday, but finally I didn’t go, so I decided to rest finally.
- Friday 17th: Swimming – 2.8 km – 1h 24 min
I felt very good this day. 500m crawl as warm up. I’m starting to swim more important distances without stopping, which is a good sign. After that, I did series of 100m, crawl, backstroke and breaststroke, and some series of 50m crawl at a faster speed. To finish the workout I swam again 500m crawl. That’s great, because I was tired after 2300m, but anyway I was able to swim the last 500m without stopping.
- Saturday 18th: Resting
Some sleeping is good occasionally.
- Sunday 19th: Cycling – 38.30 km – 2h 31 min
Good cycling day. It was cold at the start, even if I started at 9:30 today, and the sun was shining. I think I need to wear more clothes, because I’m not comfortable with the cold, specially, cycling downhill. The route was to La Reigada, from an altitude of 7m, to about 530m, and back. I felt very good, with good legs, and after the workout I wasn’t very tired.
Total week 37: Swimming: 4.8 km – Cycling: 38.30 km – Running: 8.18 km
Next week I’ll try to improve further in the swimming pool, and run two times a week (probably Monday and Thursday). Let’s see if the periostitis doesn’t return even doing these two running sessions.
