And we go from a recovery week to a taper week. Getting back to normal training is going to be rough!
Monday – Rest day
Tuesday – Easy 3 miles with pickups to race pace. This one was tough. It was as if I just couldn’t get warmed up. Took me 41 minutes, which is longer than usual, even though I was supposed to have pickups in the middle.
Wednesday – Easy 45 minute trainer ride. It’s nice to just be able to sit in the trainer and spin. It’s hard work, but I enjoy that it requires zero thinking.
Thursday – Team Fight Swim. Tonight we did an open water swim practice. Instead of swimming myself, I helped out with some of the newer swimmers. I give these girls a lot of credit. They showed up at the beginning of the season completely unable to swim and they’re planning to get in the water and swim 1000 meters. I don’t know that I’d have the guts to do it. So I worked with one of the swimmers to try to build up her confidence. I don’t know if it helped, but whatever happens to her on Sunday, she has done something awesome.
Friday – Just a bit of easy running and spinning on the bike to stay loose.
Saturday – Racked my bike and hung out with Kim at the IronGirl Expo getting people signed up for the upcoming IronGirl Columbia Half Marathon and 5K.
Sunday – RACE DAY!
