Originally posted by drfoodlove 45’ run here today. Nothing spectacular, but done and I enjoyed it, so that’s something. Andrew-that’s a good question. For me, it is more a mental thing, that I need a day I can have nothing scheduled. I’ve tried timing my workouts like you described, and I didn’t find it working for me. I do, however, sometimes do my workouts a different points in the day as you described, to take advantage of extra recovery.

For me there are two types of recovery, sleep and nutrition.  If I get a meal in between two workouts, I consider that as some recovery.  Two meals, even better.  Sleep even more so.  There's definitely a difference in a swim/strength session at 5 PM followed by dinner and sleep and then a fasted bike ride at 5:30 AM vs. the same workouts 24 hours and three meals and sleep apart.

When I was really managing three sports I would do something like Monday AM, Monday PM, Tuesday noon, Wednesday AM, Wed PM, etc. in order to always have at least 12 hours and two meals between each workout.  Now with just a bike focus it's a lot easier.

See, I hadn't even considered how many full meals in between workouts. But you're right that's a very relevant point. Thanks for the thoughts.

Fairly relaxed week for me so far, 2 swims, 3 indoor bikes and a run. Longest workout of the week so far is about 45 minutes. It is a rest week after all.

Tomorrow I've got my make up 3 hour ride from last week, and a 75 minute long run Sunday.

We've also got our election on tomorrow, and on Sunday its the 2nd Bledisloe Cup test match (NZ vs Australia in rugby) and the Bathurst 1000 (Racing cars, this part of the worlds biggest race, think Daytona 500) So I've got a long weekend of sitting on the couch watching sports/politics ahead of me. Where I'm sure I'm going to snack myself into undoing several weeks of good workouts. Haha.

Have a good weekend everyone.

45’ run this afternoon in rapidly chilling weather. Yesterday, I sat outside in the afternoon and got a little sunburn. Today, temp is down 20 degrees and it was cloudy. I fear this might be the real turn into cooler weather.

My sports watching this weekend goes something like: Giro, Liverpool men playing their local rivals, All Blacks playing their local rivals, more Giro, Arsenal women playing their local rivals, Tour of Flanders, International Swimming League. 

No exercise for me recently: birthday celebrations, tiredness from new job, joy of time of the month etc. Hoping to get back running on Monday (with a warm up ride before/cool down ride after), and to rugby training on Wednesday. 

Have a fab w/e all and don't forget to vote (when it's your turn!)

90’ of riding on the bike trails near my parents house. This week was on the tri bike, as their trail is paved. Had a lot of fun!

Reached my goal of running 35k this week. Feels great! I’ll do it again next week!

Sadly no swimming (lake too cold and can’t be arsed to go to the pool) and no cycling (no excuses, other than I don’t want to)

Not quite recovered from my collarbone break mind you, swimming is probably not a good idea, and last time I bike it was not very comfortable. X-Ray tomorrow... hopefully it will be good news this time...

Saph How did you enjoy the rugby this weekend? Much more enjoyable game from my point of view. And how good is Caleb Clarke, he's going to be a big boy when he finishes growing up.

Gretchen Nice job getting back on the TT bike. Switching the single speed from a flat bar to TT position made a huge difference to my enjoyment... There is something fun about being down in the aero position.

Nathalie Good job meeting your running goal for the week. And hope the Xray gives you the news you want.

Me 7 hours 40 minutes for my 'rest' week this week.

S: x 2, 2,250m 55 minutes. Fridays swim felt really good. I'm being generous with the breaks between intervals at the moment, but still really felt like I'm making progress here again.
B: x 4, 4 hours 40 minutes.
R; x 2, 2 hours 5 minutes.

And finally, looking back at my past log, I've gone past my total hours for all of 2019 this week. In fact, 2020 is already my biggest year (in terms of time) since 2013. Although that may say more about my inconsistency over the years, it does make me feel confident about Ironman next year. The base is going to be way stronger than it has been in years.

Hope you all had a good weekend.

Nice work Andrew! Ironman 2021, here we... (you) come!

X-Ray didn't show much improvement since the last one (5 weeks ago) and the doc talking about surgery, even if he is not too keen on it, (me neither needless to say). So we decided to give it a little more time and see what it looks like in a couple of months.

I can use my arm as usual, can run, play golf and drums so it's not too bad but I can't swim (well, maybe I can, I haven't tried) and it's painful most of the time.

Sorry to hear that Nathalie. Are you getting physio?

This week I did a 'run' with a mate from rugby, and have training tomorrow night. Might try and do a ride at the weekend too. I am also off to my folks to watch our equivalent of Dancing with the Stars on Saturday night, so that should be fun.

Hour threshold ride, followed by a 30’ run with three 20” strides. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be adding in strides, even if they are only 20 seconds!! Z2 running has been getting super boring lately.

Nathalie, sorry to hear about the x-ray. Hopefully it heals more over the next month, take it easy on it!

Andrew, crushing it!! Way to go!!

Nice effort, Gretchen! I agree, some 2 running is yaaaaaawn.

Sappho, I got to watch some rugby while eating at an Irish pub in Indiana near Notre Dame University! It’s intriguing, I do not know the rules of this game (though one of my roommates in college played on our college team) so it looked like controlled chaos to me. Haha.

We have officially moved just over two weeks ago (I was only there for two days before I had to head out to work but got the kitchen up and running). I just had four more days off and spent half of one day starting to set up the “dame den.” - okay, exercise room according to my boys. Hahaha. My husband said he wouldn’t work out until it was done so that was my goal.

I forgot to mention workouts. Nothing big but have managed four days in a row of running, core work, weights and lots of walking. My goal is to get some of my lost consistency back. I just got to Dallas and I believe there’s a gym near by that’s open I can use and it has spin bikes. Here’s to hoping it’s a go.

Yep! Controlled chaos is about right!

One hour VO2 max ride this morning, including six 2’ intervals of 105-110% FTP. It was tough, but very doable. An hour later and my thighs are still burning a little! Later on, 30’ run with some strides worked in.

Jen Congratulations on the move. Hope you enjoy the new place.

Nathalie Sorry about the X-Ray results. I know it's frustrating, but keep plugging away. It's a short term setback in a long term game.

Gretchen Nice workouts, keep it up.

Me 2 swims, 1 run, 3 indoor bikes so far this week. run after work tonight and long bike and run over the weekend to come. Nothing special, just plugging along.

Have a good weekend team.

Well done on the move Jen, glad you got your priorities right and did the kitchen and the exercice room first!

Still going steady, Andrew and Gretchen, admirable

Same run goal as last week for me (almost, replacing one 5k with one strength session and running one extra k on Sunday).
Bummed about the shoulder but trying not to let it bring me down. Yes, getting physio.

Jenn—I totally missed your post about the move! Congratulations!! What DIY projects do you have planned (once you’re all unpacked)?!? Or...is that just me? :D

Rest day for me and I’m kinda bummed about it. It might be the last nice day for an outdoor ride for a while (looking at the forecast), but I try to stick with my plan as close as possible. I had three days of hard workouts with increased intensity, so I need the day physically. I am, however, taking the chance to enjoy what might be my last morning of breakfast and coffee on the patio (at least without a jacket), so maybe this rest day thing ain’t so bad!

Nice day of training with a 1:15 bike, including 2x10’@105% Ftp and 2x15’@85%. I could have ridden all day at 85%. It gets great! Later in the afternoon there was a 45’ run, but that wasn’t as great. One of the neighbors was burning wet leaves and there was so much smoke. I actually ended up coughing so hard I was gagging during the cool down. At least it was the cool down.

Whatcha all got on tap this weekend?
