I'm starting to get reminders from the race that it's right around the corner and honestly it's starting to freak me out a bit! It feels like it's so close, but luckily I'm feeling ready - with the exception of my swim. I don't think I'll ever mentally feel prepared for that! But- it was another decent week of workouts- here's how it went.
Small victory today- I ran nonstop for this entire run! Over the summer I've been doing a lot of run/walks so this felt like a (literal) step in the right direction.
Easy swim this morning- I divided it into a 200 yard warmup, 100 yard of drills, 200 yard getting faster every 25 yards, 200 easy, and then a few all out sprints racing Dan and a cool down. It was nice to know that 1,000 isn't super intimidating to me like it was a few weeks ago!
I had Dan join me today for his very first brick- we started with a 40 minute bike ride and then did a 15 minute run. On the bike he was pushing the pace and I tried keeping up, and it was the opposite on the run with me in the lead and him trying to keep up with me! It was a great workout and a lot more fun doing it with someone else instead of alone.
