Technically it is down to about 7.5 weeks, because I am a bit delayed on getting last week’s recap up on the blog. Last week was a taper week for the Legend 100.
4605 yards came in 2 open water swims…the first being 2.22 miles on Monday and the second being just 696 yards on Wednesday. Monday’s swim gave me the confidence I needed for Sunday’s race.
I had an easy bike ride on Tuesday that was only 22.3 miles in just under 90 minutes. Just enough to spin out the legs and get race ready.
Tuesday morning was an easy 3 mile run just to shake out the legs.
30 minutes of core work was all I did for strength training last week. I wanted to play it safe and not be too tired and sore on race day.
Wednesday evening I had a pre-race massage that was very painful, but definitely needed…
Legend 100 Race:
This was the toughest race conditions I’ve ever experienced. To give you perspective, just under 200 participants started the Legend 100 distance and only 119 finished. You can read the full race report here.
