Less than 25 days until the next triathlon so training is full force right now! Today I got in 2 great workouts towards my training.
I met with my buddies this morning to get in a 10k Tuesday. We actually got nearly 7 miles. It was way better than Last weeks 10k Tuesday. I don't really know if it was any faster but my body felt better and I was able to run more than the week before. Now, it was absolutely sweltering!! I was dying...so hot that I started shedding clothing about half way through. It a very occasional thing for me to wear only the tank top but today my tshirt was made of asbestos and I had to lose it or die of heat stroke!!!!
After the run I stretched out really good and then took a short time for a steam. I couldn't stay in the steam room long because I was still pretty hot from the run.
I do have a little funny for you. I went to Books-a-Million this week to look for a book. I want a triathlon training book that can give me some more options for swim workouts. Laps get tedious after a while and I need some new ideas. I was looking for something like this... (I was told they have good training programs, I'm not doing an Ironman)
The sales girl seriously took me to this.....
I then decided that this was a book that was going to have to be purchased online! My gosh, IRONMAN! Really?!?!?!?
After work I had a few errands to run before I could get to my evening workout. I managed to get things done in a reasonable time and got to the gym for a swim. I left my phone in the car this week (so no selfies) because I really wanted to focus on my swim. And that's exactly what I did, I swam hard and fast. It was a personal best for me!
Now I'm packing up for a full day tomorrow. Tomorrow morning is a weight loss workout followed by a triathlon workout after work. I have a brick planned for tomorrow afternoon (please no rain!) and I cannot wait to get on my bike. It has just been too long since I have been on my bike.
My focus has been laser sharp this week, I know its only Tuesday, but I had a kinda bad week last week so I like that I feel confident this week. I have goals set, I have workouts planned, and I like the way it feels to be in control!
