Almost in the homestretch here. Big build period coming up for Maine! As of today I have SIX weeks (insert shocked/scared/excited emoji here) until race day. Luckily, this happens to be my last week of summer semester classes, so I get to really focus on nailing my workouts as well as nutrition and recovery.
Here’s a recap of last week’s training:
For me, the week following a race has always been a rest week…as in ‘nothing scheduled but if I want to run I can go run.’ This year is different: I have an even bigger race I’m training for and it’s coming up fast.
This week included a forced rest week from swimming because my pool was closed for maintenance from July 5th-July 15th, good company on a long ride and ended with a strong run on Sunday. Because it was a recovery week (whew, that worked out well with racing!) and my pool was closed, I took two additional rest days in addition to my regular scheduled rest day.
0 –as mentioned above, my pool was closed for maintenance.
Bike 49.8 miles/3:47. Included a trainer ride, my group ride and a long ride with Laura after group ride. I’m also loving the Jasyoga for triathletes series. I’ve never felt so good after a bike ride!
Run 14 miles/2:20. Included lots of hills, gorgeous sunrises and a challenging (really hot) transition run.
And that’s a wrap on last week! Onward to the next!
