Eeeeekkkkk!! It is time to start the FINAL build before Ironman Boulder. How did that happen?!?!?!
This week was FULL of recovery. In case you missed it, we did the Legend 100 a week ago and it took a toll on our bodies. We needed this week to recover and prepare for an Olympic distance triathlon yesterday…yes, you read that correctly. We raced again yesterday 😉
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were full of sleeping, relaxing and staying in the air conditioner to recover from the heat stroke we ended up with on Sunday. I did get a post race massage on Tuesday. It always amazes me the sore/tight muscles Nick finds that I didn’t notice were sore/tight until he massages them.
My only workout on Thursday was TRX, which was MUCH more difficult than I thought it was going to be.
Friday I did a strength training session that was really good and then followed that up with mowing the lawn…I guess one could call that a workout, since we only use a push mower.
Saturday morning I ran EASY for 30 minutes. I was really dreading this workout, because I was afraid it was REALLY going to hurt. Surprisingly it didn’t hurt as bad as I thought it would. Don’t get me wrong…it didn’t feel good, just not as bad as I thought it would.
Sunday morning was, well…another race. This time it was an Olympic distance triathlon about 80 minutes from our house. It was much warmer than predicted, but still about 15F cooler than last Sunday’s race. I had an amazing bike split, but my legs definitely still felt the effects from last weekend on the run. I’ll have a full race report up on the blog this week.
Other than the triathlon, there was no swimming or cycling. Just a short shake out run on Saturday and a couple of strength training sessions…5 hours & 9 minutes…a true sign of lots of recovery this week.
Highlight of the week:
Getting my Coeur Sports delivery on Saturday…I LOVE the Monaco design and had to add to my collection. Hello #stylishspeed
