I’ve had a couple of good training weeks, and lots of “life” stuff going on in between. Hence, the two-week recap…
Monday 8/6 – Holiday Monday off work and a bunch of us met for a fun, leisurely group ride. Love it!
Tuesday 8/7 – Kicked the work week off with the girls for our usual Tuesday 5am run.
Wednesday 8/8 – Steamy run at lunch and swam 2000 metres in the lake after work (no wetsuit).
Thursday 8/9 – Skipped clinic/speed work in favour of a short, rainy run with the hubs – we had a few things to do and I wanted to get ready for my big run in the AM.
Friday 8/10 – 18-mile run-mute to work starting at 4:30AM in pouring rain. I was glad to be done that one!
Saturday 8/11 – REST!
Sunday 8/12 – Bracebridge Olympic Tri

Monday 8/13 – REST
Tuesday 8/14 – Recap: 5am 5K run, quickie lunch-time swim, evening 15K time trial ride followed by 5K brick run
Wednesday 8/15 – Morning bike-mute to work. Planned to bike home but a storm rolled in. Cleared up by the time I got home so I went for a run.
Thursday 8/16 – Squeezed in another lunch-time swim (using my new 910xt in the pool for the first time!), then ran easy catching up with Kelly that evening instead of the speed work we had on deck with clinic.
Friday 8/17 – 2000m lake swim on a chilly night. The water is getting colder! I kind of wished I had my wetsuit.
Saturday 8/18 – Drove to Muskoka to ride the 70.3 bike course so I would know what I am in for. It’s a tough one, to say the least! Luckily there is plenty of gorgeous scenery. My pit crew (hubs & pup) met me a couple of times along the way and I got 100K done for the day.
Sunday 8/19 – Long run with the group. I expected my legs to be trashed from the big ride, but kept the pace easy and felt pretty great! Happy to have my first 30K in the books for this summer.

Swim 3x for 5110m in 1:53:41
