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-


Monday

1 hour SUP
Such a perfect day out, so after work I immediately headed to the lake for some paddling.  It was really crowded but I still got to relax and enjoy the weather!


Tuesday

3.1 mile run
For some reason, I thought it would be a smart idea to go for my run after work, during the highest temperatures of the day, without water.  Luckily I was going on a trail run (since my tri run portion is on trails) which helped A LOT!  I love running on trails and need to get on them more, but this was such an enjoyable run.


Wednesday

Rest Day!
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.


Thursday

Beat Fitness
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.


Friday

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!


Saturday

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.


Sunday

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.
