  3. RUN
    2.01 mi 00:16 08:11 pace

    Even though (or maybe because) my legs were toast after our ride, I was determined to lace 'em up for a short transition run.

    I keep reminding myself that it's precisely during times li... read more

      Absolutely. It would be so easy to just wrap it up with the bike but gosh how much more satisfying is it to just roll through another 15 minutes or so? I like to think that makes all the difference!

    Saturday afternoon ride with GK. I'm pleasantly surprised by our average pace given that I felt rather groggy and tired all morning. Guess you never really know til you get out there, huh?

    Embracing the humidity 4.25 mi 00:40 09:24 pace

    It was 85 degrees by then, so the sweat factor was high. We made a pit stop a... read more

      Haha "for the record" is so true. You've got all the true hot months ahead. And heck yes about discomfort while training. It really helps prepare you to just roll with whatever shows up. Good big brick! This is just great.

    Midday ride/run brick with Gerryl. I knew 3 miles into our ride that I had no power in my legs at all so, heading into a 20 mph headwind, with some significant uphill segments, wasn't pretty. ... read more

      SO much better than switching into a headwind on the way back. Nice work by both of you! Tired legs are something to be proud of, I think!

    tired Lunch swim - LISD pool 1.14 mi 00:42 36:46 pace

    Lunch swim immediately after my Pilates session. I was actually pretty wiped from Pilates but, I'll take this 2,000 yds and call it a win.

      This IS going to make you a better triathlete. So excited about this structural strength you're revisiting. You'll be able to absorb mileage even better than ever. This is great! The best kind of sore too.
