Today marks the start of our LAST build week before the taper for Ironman Boulder…time flies when we’re having fun!!
Swim: 7196 yards
Swimming brought me highs and lows this week. The highlight was my 2.6 mile open water swim in Okoboji on Tuesday with Dad kayaking next to me. It was so peaceful and enjoyable.
Bike: 186 miles
This week was FULL of rain, which means we ended up having to do a LOT of trainer rides this week. Thankfully Saturday was a picture perfect day for our long ride. To get our long miles in, we took part in the Eastern Iowa Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes. You can expect a full report in a day or two. If you would like to donate to a great cause, please do so here.
Run: 31.5 miles
We had a couple of long runs this week and many shorter ones off the bike. I was blessed to get to run one of my long runs around West Lake Okoboji. It is always so peaceful to run along the lake…
I made sure to run both of my long runs in the afternoon heat to remind my body what it feels like to run during the heat of the day…
Strength Training: 1 hour & 45 minutes
Weekly Totals: 21 hours & 46 minutes
Last Week’s Highlights:
I went home to visit Mom and Dad early this week. It is always nice to go home…see family, swim in the lake and relax.
I also had a massage on Friday to work through some tight muscles before starting our final build week…
This Week’s Focus:
Complete all of my scheduled workouts, focus on mental training and enjoy time with friends.
How was your week? What were the highlights of your week?
