New York City Marathon 2015 Training Day 37 - Tempo Run

Last week was really a rest week before we start to kick it up a notch.  

Today was my first hard interval workout that I got to wear shorts and a short sleeved shirt!  An 8-9 effort out of 10 for 3 intervals of 5 minutes.  Looks like I averaged about a 7:20.  It did feel like I was running in mud on the third interval. 7:03, 7:20 and 7:35 on my Garmin 910XT

I also had my first GU in a long time.  I wonder what else I will be using to train with.

For core I did P90X2 Ab Ripper X2 with my buddy Tony Horton

New York City Marathon 2015 Training Day 30 - Swim and Easy Bike

While the easy bike was scheduled, I added an easy bike since my son was training for his Mini Mighty Man Pool Triathlon.  A few Wildwood Warrior Junior Team Mates wanted to practice at the Nassau Aquatic Center, an Olympic Sized Pool with Stands for viewing.   Zachary and I used one lane while Irene did her workout from Coach.

Later that evening I did an easy 30 minutes on the bike trainer while watching Rocky Balboa Special Features.

New York City Marathon 2015 Training Day 29 - Rest

Nothing to report, but rest! 

But this is what my coach wrote: 
Noah, we really need to recover for a week so we can start building again, and adding some quality! ENJOY this down week! :-)

New York City Marathon 2015 Training Day 28 - Run Easy

Today, I decided to avoid the Selden Hills because I was worried about my calves.  So I took my 75 minutes locally toward my gym where I wanted to swim afterwards!  I also laced up my new running shoes, the Saucony Mirage 5.  I was looking to find the Mirage 3, but they don't make it any more.  It was a nice even pace today!

The swim was good.  Still don't have the swim mojo yet!

New York City Marathon 2015 Training Day 27 - Bike Outside?

Yay!  I finally got out for a bike ride outside!!!!!!!!!   Coach scheduled 90 minutes, but Irene, Zachary and I got in just over an hour before going to the PT to work my calves.  

I was able to swap out my yellow bike trainer wheel for my Continental Grand Prix 4 Season wheel.  But it took a a few minutes to find my Rudy bike helmet

It was an easy ride :)

New York City Marathon 2015 Training Day 26 - Run Easy

Today, while the boys ran with their team, I ran on the track on the outside lane.  Thank God, I have a GPS watch to track my time and mileage, because I would have lost how many loops.  I love my Garmin 910XT.  I will still keep it until it dies!  But the Garmin 920XT looks really good!

Our Team Mom, Coach Jenn inspires me so much, she is training for her first triathlon and she kept on running.  She is doing the same race that my wife and daughter will be doing so it's going to be a great day!
