I have 2 weeks to Surf City and when I looked down at about the 1/2 marathon time I was 10 min away from my goal. I had walked some with my wife and troubleshooted her ankle and also stopped for traffic lights and water. I am thinking that I am going to be able to give it a go. I have a shorter long run next week, then the 1/2 marathon. This week I will have a recovery run on monday, gym/weights/spin?, wednesday speed?, thursday easy?, rest friday, and saturday may be long progression run?
I am sorely missing the bike and swim right now. I am taking an unorthodox approach to triathlon offseason or now preseason but I am concentrating on my fitness. My resources tell me that the run fitness will translate to swim and bike but not the other way around. I hate the trainer and I hate the cold too. Quote:
