A lighter week, due to holiday and injury prevention ...
Mon: swim 1500 yards, bike 1:30 tempo pace
Tue: run 1:15 moderate pace
Thu: TI stroke practice, 1000 yards
Fri: run 0:50 temp pace
I didn't swim as much as I'd like during the week, but I did make good progress on getting my stroke smoother and fixing my breathing problems. Theresa came to the pool Monday morning for her water aerobics class, and after that she watched my stroke. She helped identify my way-too-deep head position which seemed to be the root cause of breathing problems. Breathing was much less an issue with Thursday's swim.
Tuesday's run caused me a lot of pain in my left upper anterior shin. I really did nothing different than many other runs, so I'm thinking it was the Sunday 5K and/or my shoes are getting worn out. I skipped the Wednesday workout, skipped the Sunday long run, and moved a few other things around in the week to avoid stressing that leg. It's feeling much better now.
I took Saturday and Sunday off to spend the entire Christmas weekend with my family. I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas as much as we did.
