Overalll, pretty happy with how that week shook out. It was tough not having my usual Monday recovery day - by Thursday I was pretty much exhausted and really needed that Friday off!
The track work on Wednesday was particularly good. Not so much from a pace perspective (I've lost some speed since last summer), but my legs and
|5 am on the track is dark, yo.|
|Post long run picture taking, because I was too sweaty to get back into the car right away.|
A couple of minutes later, he goes flying past me. Cool, whatever, he was just taking a break when I went around him.
Except no, he gets a hundred meters ahead of me and slows down again. OK. Passed him again, said something about it being a nice day, which he ignored.
And a few minutes later, a repeat. WTF, dude! And then he AGAIN slowed down in front of me. At that point I was turning towards home so I didn't get to see if we'd play the same game a third time, but that was seriously annoying.
So annoying, in fact, that it powered me to a local QOM on the final downhill of the ride. HA!
This week's plan:
Monday: rest, glorious rest
Tuesday: swim; whatever TR interval torture is on tap for the week. Something wonderful I bet.
Wednesday: run at the track; open water swim*
Thursday: bike to and from work (weather permitting); swim
Friday: run, TR easy ride
Saturday: long bike + brick run
Sunday: long run, swim
*haven't been in open water for a while and really missing it. Definitely going to go this week if the weather cooperates!
