Weekly stats

  • Running – 22.1  miles
  • Bike/spinning – 46.5  miles
  • Swimming 3,600 yards  (2 miles)
  • P90x – Week 7 workouts – core synergies

I’ve been juggling the dual goal of P90x faithfulness and achieving 2k of total miles in running/biking/swimming.   This week seemed a perfect way to help nudge those miles up – right at 1.85k so have some activity these last 10 days of 2009.   With one core synergy workout and 4 swimming sessions, I felt my core would receive equivalent benefit of the recovery weeks routine.

Sunday, Day 50 – Core Synergies & 4.2 mile run – Good mix up of a snow crunched run in the morning and synergies in the afternoon.  Ice is in the forecast for Monday or Tuesday, ugh!

Monday, Day 51 – The ice man commeth – early Monday morning.  Ventured out for just short of 3 miles with Yak Trax and dogs.  Sidewalks to slick for even the yak trax – ran on neighborhood streets.

Tuesday, Day 52 – Combo day of 13 on recumbent bike at new Fallbrook Y and 1,100 yard swim.  1st 500 of the swim in 11 minute range.

Wednesday, Day 53 – Rest Day – those happen every once in awhile

Thursday, Day 54,  Tri-combo day – short run 1.1 to get kids from school (footing a little better),  7 mile bike followed by 750 yd swim.

Friday, Day 55, Tri – Day 2 (20 miles), killer spinning workout at Cooper Y (15 miles), 4.2 with dogs and 1,100 swim a night during Dolphin swim team.  Almost 20!

Saturday, Day 56, Tri Day 3 (22 miles), 10 mile rile in the heavy North Face shoes, great on ice/snow but felt like bricks on good trails, upper 11 minute pace at best; 11 mile on upright Precor at Y and then 500 yards of a slow swim.

Back at the end of Week 9!
