Monday: 33k bike ride. Was nice. Nothing fancy.
Tuesday: I had a really hard time dragging myself out the door for this one, mostly because this was the view:
|hello cottage life.|
I did eventually make it out the door for a 10k run. Hot, humid, but I got to run past some very fancy cottages by the lake. Somewhat hillier than I anticipated, but a solid run.
Made it out for 12k ish, although my GPS went nuts during the first 3k, so that's a bit of a guess.
|I appear to have been quite drunk during this portion of the run, at least based on my GPS trace!|
A solid run. Pace was speedier than usual, even taking into account the GPS wonkiness. Feeling pretty good about things.
|Different route with more cows. Deeply suspicious cows.|
|Post run ice bath in the lake. I wonder if I can get a lake put into my backyard? Because this was awesome.|
33k bike ride in the evening to make sure the bike was in order for the duathlon on Saturday. At one point I was like shit, what's that rattling sound? AHHHHHH! But eventually I figured out it was the stuff in my seatbag banging around. D'oh.
Friday: Rest day. And organize my shit for the duathlon day. So freaking complicated and I don't even swim yet!
|Am I forgetting anything? OH MY GOD WHAT AM I FORGETTING??|
Saturday: Guelph Lake II sprint duathlon. 2k run, 30k bike, 7k run (a little longer than a typical sprint). Race report is coming (really this time, not like that Rattlesnake Point one I never wrote except in my head). Spoiler alert: it was pretty awesome and I came home with some bronze coloured bling.
|Yeah, the race went pretty well!|
Run: 53 km
Bike: 94.7 km
Weekly total: 147.7 km in 8 hours 33 minutes
Very good week! I probably should have done a longer run at the cottage, but there was a hammock that really needed someone to sit in it. I think I have my priorities straight.
This week I'm running the 15k at MEC burlington race 4, which I will be using as a long tempo run. I'm both excited and nervous to see how it goes, as it'll be a good test of my readiness for Oakville. One last hard week of training before taper.
