Monday: Swim—2350 yards
I went to the pool for Masters again. We had a day that focused on lots of harder intervals with more rest.
4 x 50 10 kick roll
4 x 50 closed fist
200 (medium, kick, easy, fast)
150 (kick, easy, fast)
100 (easy, fast)
I swam reasonably well. There was another set after-the-fact, but I decided to leave a little early so I could get to work a little early. Since I just barely started my new job, I don’t have any PTO, so I’ve been working extra to make up the time I’ll be taking off for Thanksgiving.
Tuesday: Run—3.23 miles
I went to the track for a mostly easy pre-work run. Most of the run was just basic, steady-state cardio, but I threw in a couple 400s at (well, a little faster than) race pace. I felt fine during this workout. I didn’t want it to be anything difficult, and it wasn’t.
I took the day off and drove up to Idaho for Thanksgiving.
Thursday: Struttin’ for Stuffin’ 5k—20:55
I’ll write up a race report, but suffice to say, the race went far better than I thought iit would, and I gave it everything. I’m not sure I’ve ever been so wrecked after a 5k before.
I took Friday off to recover and eat leftovers.
I ended up leaving for Salt Lake a day early because I was a little worried the weather forecast on Sunday. I was thinking of running with my dad, but with the change of plans, I didn’t have the time. I also felt myself getting a bit of a cold, and I had a really low (~99) fever.
I woke up with a pretty sore throat and feeling a bit worse than I did on Saturday. I didn’t feel terrible by any means and still felt up to going to church and doing some housework, but I decided on a rest day (and would have probably taken another one anyway, even if I had felt great).
