There really isnt a whole lot to report. There are a lot of things brewing but they will have their time. Right now it is about doing the best I can with what I got. This week was different since I had some entertaining to do. What I have is heat, which requires early morning workouts and early bed times. With a lot going on at work and home, I have struggled with those time frames. Here is how the week went:
Monday-Strength and core.
Tuesday-Easy run. 4 miles slow and easy. Sore and tired....
Wednesday-Bike hills. Pushed for sleep.
Thursday-Training run. 5 miles. Tried to pick it up on the way home and had a 8:45 mile 5 up a hill. Felt pretty good.
Friday-Scheduled day off.
Saturday-Swim/Bike Brick. Swam 1800-2000 meters. Hard to tell with the water WAY up at lake mead. I felt very strong on the swim. I did some pic ups and was able to go longer than I thought with a higher paced swim. I think I am due to have a better swim at pumkinman. The transition was slow. Bike was boulder beach to the tower where t2 will be at pumkinman. The last 9.5 miles will be a 1500 foot gain. I am happy with that bike. 1:27:20. Had a bbq at the house and had a late night.
Sunday-Long bike. scratched for "hangover" type symptoms. lol. Slept in. Quote:
