I had every intention of writing every day last week, but I blinked and before I knew it a whole week had passed. Where did it go? So, I'll try again this week. Here's what I was up to this week.
Swimming - 5300 yards
Two longer swims this week, one of which was 3000 yards. I had a biopsy on my ear this week so wearing a swim cap and goggles was not exactly pain free or fun. My favorite part of my swims this week was the monkey toy on the bottom of the toy that would smile at me with each passing length.
Biking -14.33 miles
Honestly, I can't tell you anything about the bike rides. They were at the beginning of the week and they were uneventful. I do remember that I stepped up the heat acclimation with them by not only riding with long sleeves and no fan, but this time I added a winter hat.
Running - 23.76 miles
Running was full of highs and lows. I had a great track workout where I really tackled my demons and felt great and was moving with speed. I also had a "long" run that was just terrible. It was HOT and my hip was hurting (more on this soon) and I just didn't want to do it. I have no idea what is going to happen in my upcoming marathon. Training has been crazy sporadic since my last race.
I guess you could say this upcoming week is full-on taper as my marathon is next Sunday.
