Even though I’d like to be 100% committed to my half marathon training, I took it a little easier this week to rest up for today’s triathlon championships. Any Salty worth her, well, salt knows that it’s better to be rested and happy than overtrained and suffer tired through a race. That being said, next week is new chance to get back on the horse and back outside in the warm, actually spring-like weather! Looking forward.
Monday – Rest. I ended up baking (and eating) a lot of cookies.
Tuesday – Easy 6 miles (8:55 pace)
Wednesday – Treadmill class (look for a review in an upcoming post!) for 60 minutes. 4 hill repeats and 4-3-2-1 minutes-30 sec speed intervals. 6 miles total.
Thursday-Saturday – Rest, outside of biking to and from school. Just staying loose for…
Sunday – Indoor Triathlon Championships! I ended up swimming 23 laps (3 more than last time), biking just over 25 miles (also more than last time), but only running 2.66 mi at about 1 7:30 pace (about a quarter mile less than the qualifiers). I’m still waiting on the official results, so we’ll see if the extra effort in the swim and bike paid off.
