3 weeks down, 15 to go

Another week in the books! One week closer!

Here's how it went down:
Sunday: 10 mile run with Vancouver Fit, 60 mile bike ride (4 hours), followed by a 10 minute transition run off the bike. I wrote a blog post about this day. We were suffering from upset stomachs due to poor nutrition the days before.
Monday: 60 min spin class
Tuesday: 40 minute runWednesday: 60 minutes upper body weights/abs followed by 60 minute spin class
Thursday, Friday, Saturday: Rest days. We have a marathon coming up on Sunday and we wanted to be completely rested and ready. We built a little extra recovery into the program.

Total for the week:
Swim: 0 hours
Bike: 7 hours
Run: 2 hours and 40 minutes
Weights: 1 hour
Total: 10 hours and 40 minutes

By the end of the week I was really feeling fresh again. My legs had been totally burned out. Our last marathon on April 11th was really tough because we were just so tired. We expect this little rest will give us the boost we need to have a great race on Sunday! Stay tuned for a report...
