The bike ride was hard at first because of a headwind, but was fun on the way back! We immediately set off on the run and it went pretty well. It was hard- my heart rate was already up and my legs were tired, but it seemed easy to slip into a fast pace. Maybe it's the fact that I was moving so fast on the bike and my body wanted to hang onto that momentum. Really tough workout for sure.
Saturday afternoon we drove into SF and went on a shopping spree at Sports Basement in the Presidio. This is a super warehouse of athletic gear and clothes and it has an enormous Triathlon section. Plus everything else a person could ever need and discounted prices. We each got tri shorts and tops, cycling jerseys, Zach got bike shorts, I got sunglasses, some running shorts, we got seat bags for our bikes, flat repair kit, frame-mounted bike pump, and more stuff I can't remember. We had a 20% off coupon so we saved a ton. :)
Total miles for the week: 18.2
Plus 23 miles bike, 1500 meters swim
Then we were off to Vegas! The quick summary is that we lounged by the pool till noon or so every day, gambled a bit (did pretty well!), ate good food and enjoyed many good drinks at our hotel- New York New York, spend one afternoon/evening at the beautiful Wynn casino, shopped a lot, and crashed out pretty early each night. It was super fun. Here are a few pics:
I drank/shopped/lounged away two days of this week so I've got some making up to do training-wise. I'm about to head out for a longish run since I have the day off, then here's the rest of the week plan:
thurs: swim am, bike pm
