Well, not a perfect week, but not too terrible.
Monday – Swim Drills. This was my first Monday swim and MAN, the pool is crowded on Mondays. I will have to be sure to get there as early as possible so I get a lane and still get to work on time.
Tuesday – 4 miles on the treadmill. It’s so nice that ABC Family has started up their programming again so I have something to watch
Wednesday – 60 minutes of bike drills. These kick my ass every week and I love it. I feel like the bike is the portion of the triathlon where I have the most opportunity to improve, and I know this will help so much.
Thursday – I came home from work with an insane headache and just crashed. No swim practice for me.
Friday – Rest day, so I started the closet insanity.
Saturday – 8 mile run. So much better than last week. I think the temperature was cooler. I was definitely dripping wet though, and thinking I might need a Camelbak to get me through these hot runs. My bottle belt just isn’t cutting it.
Sunday – 17 mile ride. I’m getting better at these hills, but I need to learn to pace myself so that I’m not overdoing it and letting my heartrate get too high. Today, I also retaped my handlebars. Ethel looks so pretty in her new outfit!
So one missed workout. Not ideal, but I felt like I did what was right for my body. I was clearly run down. However, this week will be better.
