Triathlon Training : Almost There!
Let me be completely honest- this was not the best week of training! There were a couple life events thrown in the way that I had to work around, so I was just happy to get in at least one swim, run, and bike this week. There's only 3 weeks to go until race day, so let's just hope I'm doing enough to finish at this point!
Here's a look at how training went-
1 hour SUP
3.1 mile run
For work, we went to the Pirates game! It was a lot of fun and the Pirates managed a great win (with a home run). Since I was out all day and got home late, I decided to take the day off.
After work, I headed up for my favorite class! Today's circuits included a lot of fun equipment, like a bosu ball, Ski-erg, and bats. The workout wasn't as hard which hopefully means I'm getting in better shape.
1000 yard swimming
This was a really long day! Dan came home from Hawaii, so I picked him up at the airport at 6AM. Then, I had to race home for a meeting, and then head to North Park for a work picnic. It was a ton of fun, and I got to learn how to play Cricket! Afterwards, I headed to the pool to get in a swim. I felt great the entire time!
8 mile run
I met up with friends early in the morning to get this run done! It was super hot, so we mostly spent the entire time trying to survive the heat. I was also pretty tired because Dan and I went to a birthday party the night before and didn't get home until midnight, so I did pretty well for only getting 5 hours of sleep.
15 mile bike
After spending most of the day out in the sun enjoying the Deutchtown Music Festival, then dealing with trying to find where a mysterious beep was coming from in our house, Dan and I both really needed to sleep in! So, we hung out around the house and watched the Wimbledon finals until getting out around noon for a bike ride. By then, it was in the 90s and about to storm, but luckily we got in a great bike ride. We headed out to the Butler Freeport Trail, which is great for both biking and running/walking and is also shaded the entire way! This was my longest bike ride to date, and it was really good.
