Last big push before race week!
Monday – Swim drills for a total of 1700m. This is always a mental game for me. Getting up early to hit the pool is hard. Also, I forgot my music today. Life so hard.
Tuesday – 7 mile run with 4 at tempo pace. My foot seems to be healed! Hooray! I do not need to be going into a race week injured.
Wednesday – Trainer workout. I love these. I know so many people loathe the trainer, but I love, love, love it. I do not love the pool of sweat on my mat, but hey, at least I have a mat. Post-workout, I cleaned my bike chain and man, I should do that more often. So gross.
Thursday – Team Fight swim. Very crowded pool today, but it made for a good workout. Swimming with others always pushes me just a bit harder, and I love the camaraderie that comes with a group workout even though we’re all doing our own thing at our own pace.
Friday – Rocked the rest day.
Saturday – Hit my ten miler late in the day due to choir reauditions and even though it wasn’t that hot, the run just did not go well. I hit a wall around mile 7 and just couldn’t get out of it. Not sure if it was fueling or heat or what, but it was a slog to finish.
Sunday – So Saturday night involved a few beers, and add to that the bad run and I was worried that Sunday’s ride wouldn’t be pretty. But honestly, it wasn’t terrible. A bit slower than normal, but mentally I felt faster. Either way, I pushed through the desire to stay in bed, so I call the week a win.
