Vanilla’s Training Log 11-9-14 to 11-15-14

My race season officially ended this week with the Rev 3 Half in Florida on Sunday.  After 4 days of beautiful weather, Mother Nature decided to make us work for it by giving us rain, wind, current, puddles and a sandbar to walk over while swimming.  Being literally at sea level, the course was super-fast which made it a little more bearable with the weather.

My plan after the race was to take off one full week then ease back into things for the next couple of weeks.  I was really looking forward to the time off!

11/9:  Rev 3 Half ironman!  I’m working on a race report, so I’ll spare a lot of details here…  windy, rainy, 55 degrees, wet, waves…  it was a challenging day on an easy course.  Ended up with a 34 second PR (ha!) and a podium with 3rd AG.  Finally broke the 1:45 half run with a 1:42.  My first podium finish at a major triathlon.

11/10:  REST!  Watched TV, sat in the sun.  Ate fudge for breakfast.  Flew back to Colorado to be greeted with snow and 10 degrees!

11/11:  Still nothing!  Not having any issues with it!

11/12:  Nada, nothing, zilch.

11/13: Really at peace with myself for not doing anything.  Started to think about exercising, but that lasted about 30 seconds.

11/14:  50 crunches and 20 push-ups in the morning.  Happy hour(s) after work!

11/15:  50 crunches + 21 push-ups + 10 sit-ups.  It was a snowy and cold day in Boulder, which was a perfect day to stay indoors, watch lots of football and clean out my closet!
