And now, for the second and final installment of the streak report. Not a lot of running and minimal biking (because I was in California and did not have a bike with me.) At least I got to do a lot of this in the sun.
Continued from Part I…
Day 13: 1hr 15 min of TRX with sprints in between each circuit
Day 14: 5.3 mile run alone with my music, shins and knee reeeeally got to me
Day 15: 26 mile bike ride (1 hr 30 min). Also the day I decided to take the next week+ off until my leg stopped hurting.
Day 16 : First day in CA. 3200 swim OUTSIIIIDE!
Day 17 (Christmas): everything was closed. Did a 5ish mile walk with Paul and Dad in the hot hot sun (I broke a sweat, counting it).
Day 18: 4.something mile hike in the mountains of SB with some old friends (we walked uphill, also counting it)
Day 19: 4000 swim (1hr 15 min, main set: broken mile)
Day 20: 3500 swim (1hr 15 min, long course masters practice in SB)
Day 21: 2500 swim (1 hr, long and easy, hypoxic pull)
Day 22: 3000 swim (1hr 15 min, threw some fast 100s in there)
Day 23: Nothing. Spent the day recovering from a migraine on the flight home. Then baked bread.
Day 24 (but actually day 25 bc I started on day 0): (NEW YEARS DAY!) 1hr 30 min ride on the trainer. Felt like death.
The end. How anticlimactic. It wasn’t a complete fail, I only did nothing on 2 of the 25 days, but also not a complete success. I’m still not running, going to try to start again this weekend. Fingers crossed….
