Here is my training log leading up to the New Orleans 70.3.
4/12: Easy 34 mile ride, followed by easy 4 mile run. Windy on the bike at the end.
4/14: 4.1 miles with my running group–helped coach the workout.
4/15: TRACK!!! Met my friend/co-worker, Erin, for a short track session before her Boston and my New Orleans. She had 8 x 400, and I had 6 x 200. Short, easy warm-up of 2 miles to the track, then we did our own thing. I was shocked that I was hitting the 200s in 40-41. They hurt, but hurt so good. I rested for 200 in between each rep, but I could have shortened the rest. I finished my workout before Erin, so I jumped in with her at the end of her last 3 400s to run in with her. Felt good to be back at the track, and it made me think that I want to get back into running after this summer. Hit the pool in the evening for 1,050m easy. Relaxed in the sauna after.
4/16: Easy 30 minutes on the trainer in the morning. 1,000m easy swim after work.
4/17: 3 miles before leaving for the airport.
4/18: 3.25 miles in New Orleans. Hello Humidity! It was 80 degrees with over 90% humidity. I was drenched! The rest of the day was easy–packet pick-up, lunch, nap, gathering gear.
Running: 21.85 miles
Biking: 34 miles + 30 minutes
Swimming: 1.2 miles
