Bike: 154 km
Run: 43 km
A down week but still 12 and a half hours of training. Yeah, this whole thing is really dumb. As I told the girls this morning, for the fall I'm just going to train for 5ks.
(but that's a bit appealing right now)
Tuesday: 2100m swim; TR Jobs -2

Wednesday: 8.5k run
Thursday: 2750m swim; TR Sill + 8.5k brick run
|Bricks = freezies. Or creamsicles, which the kids had all finished, which was quite the DISASTER.|
Friday: 10.5k run
|Managed to get like 10 good pics out of 20 seconds of video. Gotta love a nice sunrise.|
Saturday: 99k bike; 2700m open water swim
98.8k with @fabbrasca (because I will run around a parking lot to get an even number, but biking? Oh hell no). Considering our general lack of enthusiasm it ended up being a really nice ride. Also enjoying doing a “short” ride because there’s some long ass ones coming up in July. #immt2018 #ironmantraining #triathlontraining
Fab was supposed to do a 3 hour ride and I was supposed to do 4, so we split the difference and did 3:30. Also, I should have mapped it at 102 km because what was supposed to be 100 even was a km short, and I am not going to ride around a parking lot for a km to even out a bike ride. It was a nice ride overall, especially given neither of us was really enthusiastic about doing it. I think we are thinking ahead to the long ones we have coming up...
|This girl! I've been following Krista on instagram for a while as she trains for Placid and we finally managed to get together for a workout. She inspires me so much and it turns out she's super cool and funny and awesome in person, too.|
|Strike a pose. Ignore the fact the tri suit feels a lot like you aren't wearing anything at all...|
|The scenery is prettier at Christie than gulliver's, too.|
Up early before the whole 'feels like 43 degrees' thing could set in. Drank a good liter and a half on this 15k and was still 2 pounds lighter at the end. hot weather running is the worst.
|Things you see on long runs that are very confusing. But Y tho?|
so, pretty solid, and feeling a lot more rested today than I have for a while. Gotta rejig the schedule a bit this week because it's RACE WEEK! Back to Welland this weekend for another crack at the long course. Aiming to go under 4 hours this time, although so far the weather looks like it'll be raining so that's not super ideal. But lots of time for that to change...
