BACK TO TRAINING
After 5 slothful recovery days, it was time to get back to reality. Friday after work was a 1200 meter swim. Saturday morning was a 1.5 hour run. Sunday, the rain hit before we could get out to do 50 so ended up at the gym and did 2 back-to-back hard spin workouts. Better than nothing!
My thoughts on what my next events will be are: 30k race Labor Day weekend; Aqua Velo in Maryland Sept. 26, and of course the Beach to Battleship Nov. 7 in North Carolina.
I figure I really need to step up on the run, and with a 30k race to prepare for, that should set me up for Nov. at least somewhat better than my hit and miss run training I've been doing--been doing a consistent amount of running, but shying away from longer distances with no good reason why.
So with these events looming, it will force me to step up on the swim, bike, and run, and hopefully set me up for a good race in November!

Back at it, I see!

A 30K race will be a great motivator to keep those running legs going.

Yes, I think one needs to have intermediate races to stay motivated when training for a big race for so long. Welcome back to training!

Ambitious plans! Having those out there should motivate you to step it up a notch. Have fun!

That first weekend in Nov: a busy one for NC. There is a marathon there (OXO outer banks) on Sunday.
We were hoping to go for that.. but as much as I want to be at it again, I still can hardly walk. Sigh.
You go, Girl!
