I almost forgot to recap this week! Not a whole lot happened as far as training goes since it was race week, especially since I was dealing with an unpleasant cold, too. I took it pretty easy with just an easy run and swim (I'd done a 30 mile ride the previous Sunday) and more than anything I wanted to get a little extra rest with the hopes that I'd feel better by race day. Sunday was the big day and it was a fantastic experience, both challenging and fun!
run: 5 mi, 9:12 avg pace.Didn't have to be in to work til the afternoon so I slept in a bit and went for a short and easy run. Felt pretty good physically but a little bored mentally for some reason.
swim: 2,000 yds, 40 min.
- 200 warm-up
- repeated twice:
- 4x50 (on the 1:05)
- 200 cool-down
No workout today, but I did go see the new Harry Potter movie after work! As usual, nothing like the book, but I didn't have high expectations. Glad I saw it but didn't love it.
Headed to Sonoma in the morning and hit up the expo that afternoon. Attended the mandatory athlete meeting, got everything set up in T2, bought some race gear, then hit up a busy little Italian restaurant for an awesome pre-race dinner. Posted my goals then hit the sack!
swim: 1.2 mi, 42:59 min.
bike: 56 mi, avg 16.3 mph.
