This week is the last big push before starting to back off for Buffalo Springs. I'm pretty excited to race another half IM, as Oceanside seems like forever ago. However I wanted to keep the momentum going after the race last Sunday. I really didn't feel too fatigued, so was able to come back with a strong swim and easy ride on Monday. No rest for the weary, because I had 3 tough days ahead. Tuesdays's 10 x 1mile running repeats, Wednesday's long ride, and Thursday's tempo run. I got through these workouts, along with some secondary swim workouts.
I will no doubt remember this track workout when I run out of T2 in Lubbock in two weeks! If only I could hold that 6:15-6:20 pace from T2 to the finish line! Needless to say my legs were trashed. I felt fine (relatively speaking) during the run on Thursday, but shortly after I ran HARD into this:
Thursday also called for a masters swim workout. But as the day went on I could hardly conceive what good another workout would do. Instead I walked through the doors of Sculpt Fusion. Ahhhhhhhhh, much better. Crazy how a quick nap and yoga was able to restore some much needed energy and positivity! I broke through the wall and once again I felt so fortunate to have found Sculpt Fusion. This yoga studio is simply the best!
This morning I was back in action and hammering it out in the long course pool for our traditional "fast friday" workout. It was a quick rebound, and I'm ready for a solid weekend of training with my wonderful training buddy's!
