Happy Summer! Seems like the weeks are flying by. I’m starting to get back on track with training and looking forward to the weeks ahead!
7/13: Boulder Peak Triathlon (Olympic Distance). Swim 1,500m; Bike 26+; Run 10K. Total time: 2:49 and 20th in my age group. These women are fast on the bike! The race was fun, and I did better than expected. A 2 minute swim PR and I ran pretty consistent: 7:32/7:34/7:53–uphill/7:39/7:37/7:36. Ran just about the same time as BolderBoulder without having any type of meltdown during the race.
7/14: Super easy run of 3.3 miles in 31 minutes. Easy lift in the evening.
7/15: 24 miles on the bike in the morning; 4.5 miles @ 35:19 in the evening.
7/16: Workout! 8×2′ with no more than 90″ rest. My turnover felt great, and I ran a total of 6 miles in just under 43 minutes. Weights in the evening with a 1,650m swim. Actually did some swim intervals!
7/17: Not surprising—I was tired in the morning, so I slept in, which was wonderful. Managed a light weight workout in the evening followed by 4.5 miles in 35:11.
7/18: Workout–again! 5×5 minutes with 2 minutes in between. With the warm-up and cool-down, I got in 8.3 miles in an hour. Headed out in the evening for a 10 mile time trial on the bike. Ended up riding 10 at an average of 21.2. Total ride of 14 miles.
7/19: 40 mile ride followed by a 20 minute run. This was definitely my OCD day since I went to the gym later to lift and swim with my husband. (I was tired)!
Weight Training: > 2 hours
