Wednesday Workout Recap

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!
