Weekend update even though it is not the weekend…

Weekend update! Even though it is in fact not the weekend but Thursday… Thursday update of last weeks activities almost a week late… Do dah do dah

Last week totals;

Swim 5500 meters

Run 44 miles

Bike 8 hours

I didn’t realize I had sat on a bike for 8 hours last week. That is why updates are so important. It puts the pressure on for this current week, I only planned on 7.5 hours of cycling. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

 I had a wonderful 16 mile run on Sunday… My plan of taking it slow and easy ending up at a 7.30 average pace. It felt effortless! I credit this to the extra cycling and time holding my breath in the pool…

The crunch is on this week! I am cramming everything into a shortened week, I am heading to South Beach on Sunday. Next week will be a cut back week. I have trained 6 day’s a week the last 8 weeks, I am due for a break… And some heat!

I may attempt to out swim some sharks…

    Holy crap no idea where you get the time or energy to run, cycle and swim so much but much kudos. Enjoy the break

    Well if you must swim with sharks, swimming faster than them seems a sound strategy.

    I think most runners really underestimate how much swimming can affect their pacing. After I started crosstraining with swimming, my pace dropped pretty drastically.

    Keep up the good work!

    I’m glad the swimming is helping your run; that’s good to know as I’ll be hitting the pool today! Kudos on your steady progress and the ease of the training that’s coming with the commitment – very inspiring, glad to see you’re getting some rest:)
