This week is a rest week – so no crazy training exploits to brag about. Just a realization of how tired I actually am. I almost feel more worn out then I did on Sunday.
Last weekend was a very solid training weekend. On Saturday I rode the IMWI course. It was my fastest ride ever on the course (5:24), it wasn’t quite the full distance, but very very close. I was really, really happy with that. I rode very much within my abilities, and was very responsible with my pacing. I rode it with a group and very early on realized they were going faster then I should so I let them drop me! I followed it up with a 40 minute run that was OK.
Sunday I planned to do 2 loops of the Pleasant Prairie Tri course followed by a 10k run. I got a flat around mile 15, and ended up cutting my ride to 1 loop because by the time I got back to the start of the loop (and where my car was) my tire seemed to have lost a lot of pressure and I didn’t want to get stranded. I did keep the planned 10k run, and did it in a very aerobicly paced 45:36.
Other then that this is just an easy week, that I’ll cap off with a moderately hard brick on Sunday to lead into the next 3 weeks.
Oh and I’m fevorishly working on a friend’s website – Matt – if I don’t call you tonight with info call me!
