I'm heading to bed but wanted to post the training summary from the week before I put up my race report. Tomorrow morning we're heading out to The Dalles, about 90 miles east of Portland, where I'm going to do the Aluminum Man Olympic Tri. Zach is spectating but Alisa will be racing the sprint so I'll have some company. Should be an interesting race. I was excited about it all week, but as of today I think I might officially be coming down with a cold or something... and that is no fun. My throat is just a little sore. I came home after work today and went straight to bed and slept for a few hours, then just got up and got my stuff ready for the race and ate some spaghetti and now back to bed. I guess we'll just see how tomorrow goes- I will tone the effort down accordingly. This isn't a goal race for me and my overall health and strength is obviously more important. I have the next couple of days off so hopefully this will pass and I can be ready to work next week.
Anyhow, here is the recap from Birthday Week. :) What a great week! Until the cold or whatever hit I felt awesome.
8.6 miles/1:15:24/8:46 average pace
Waterfront with Zach
Solo straight swim in the gym pool
21.7 miles/1:28:17/14.7 MPH
Springwater solo ride. Alisa wasn't going to make it to spin class so I rode outside instead.
13.1 miles/1:48:18/8:16 average pace
Happy Birthday Half Marathon with Emily in Forest Park (see previous post!)
Well, off to bed. I will have a race report up asap! Have a great weekend.
