ONE WEEK!!! Really less than that. 5 days!
I’m looking forward to traveling to Whistler. Whistler is beautiful and breathtaking. Last year there were even bears that were crossing the run course as people were running along. It’s crazy! I just can’t wait to experience all that Whistler has to offer through swim, bike, run. I went last year for a wedding, which happened to be the same weekend as Ironman, and I just fell in love with the town.
Here is what last week looked like:
Monday – REST DAY!
Tuesday – Unplanned rest day – oops
Wednesday – 7 mile run around the lake near work, which I just love.
Thursday – 1hr bike with 5x3min race pace intervals – dropped Night Rider (my tri bike) off at Nytro so that Tri Bike Transport could take it up to Whistler. It’s soooo nice having someone else deal with that. Traveling with a bike can be a pain.
Friday – Swim 2700yds
Saturday – 3hr bike on the trainer
And then I met up with a friend and we grabbed brunch at Naked Cafe, my favorite place for food, then wandered around Solana Beach and looked at shops, and had a blast, and then we met up with another friend, and we all got mani/pedis, and had girl talk time. And then we had dinner at a friends house, got locked out, and then the following happened…video below.
Sunday – 3600yd swim in our local 50meter pool. I don’t go to this pool enough. Honestly, whenever I go, it makes me fall in love with swimming.
And then a beach day and concert with friends :)
It was a perfect taper week!
I did my long run yesterday – 10 miles…
Total Training Time: 8 1/2hrs
And now only 5 days to go! Everyone always asks how I’m feeling, and I swear race week, I just shut down and can’t talk about the race to anyone. lol. I just want to get through the week, get to race day, and try not to think about it, so that I can sleep. I easily get anxious about things, and can’t sleep. So, it’s best to not really think about it, and just think about everything when race day comes. haha.
Thanks everyone for the support! You all are amazing!!! Let’s see how minimalist training works for me. :)
