|'workout' is transitions from the races this weekend|
This will be a short and sweet update because the good stuff will be in the race report on the not one, but TWO triathlons I did over the weekend. Spoiler: I'm thrilled with how both races went and feeling pretty confident about Muskoka in two weeks!
(also, there may be a lot of discussion about the various places one should store ice during a hot triathlon run. Cups of ice are my new favourite running accessory)
So Tuesday Trainerroad kicked my butt with the usual set of ridiculous intervals. Wednesday a decent run and a solid swim.

|Short and sweet ride in the country to check the bike setup|
This week's plan:
Tuesday: swim; TR Sonora (60 minutes of hell*) + brick run
Wednesday: easy run; maybe OWS, maybe pool
Thursday: TR Boarstone (2 hours aerobic). Swim if I didn't swim Wednesday
Friday: easy holiday bike ride with the girls + brick run
Saturday: long easy ride
Sunday: swim, long run
*same workout as the last two weeks but the rest intervals are only 1 minute. It's for sure a good idea to do the hardest workout in the whole damn plan two days after back to back races, right? Like this can't possibly fail. And how is this a taper, Trainerroad?
