Last week was another big week of training, gearing up to my last triathlon of the season. We also had an eclipse last week. Seems pretty long ago, doesn’t it?
Monday – Eclipse Day. This was a rest day for me. It was also my telework day, and late in the afternoon, when the network went down, I decided to take advantage of the time of day and went to the pool to get in my Tuesday swim.
Tuesday – Took my rest day here. And it was glorious.
Wednesday – FTP test. This didn’t go well. I just didn’t have any energy for it, and about 15 minutes into the 20 minute test, couldn’t hold my watts, so I decided to stop the test and just continue by riding hard and finishing out the workout. I didn’t even bother to look at the stats, just decided that my I probably wasn’t fully recovered from the weekend and chose to not worry about it.
Thursday – 4 mile run
Friday – 2000m swim. Got to do this in an outdoor 50m pool, which made it seem faster, but in fact I was sooooo much slower. I think I was just being lazy since I didn’t feel as rushed – at my normal pool, I’m pushing to get done so I can get on the road to work and miss the worst of the traffic. This pool (only open early during the 2 weeks when my main pool is closed) is located such that a few minutes here or there doesn’t affect traffic.
Saturday – Got up super early to get my 2 hour ride/2 mile run in before going out for dim sum with some friends. Worth it.
Sunday – 8 mile run. It was a gorgeous day to be outside. I’m ready for the cooler weather (but not so much for the snow just yet).
