How on earth is it already IMDSM race week?!?!?! Last week I tapered like a pro…lowering my volume with bits of intensity popped in to keep the body sharp and race ready!
Quote of the week:

Swim highlights: 13,593 yards
Thursday I had my last long swim (5000m) and was SO DAMN HAPPY to be swimming outdoors in the 50m pool that I didn’t even care that the air temp was 48F and the water temp was 68F. I mean, yes it was chilly, but totally tolerable.
- Warm up:
- 200 swim
- 100 kick
- 200 drills
- 200 pull
- Main Set: Each set of intervals should get slightly faster in pacing than the last set.
- 500 (10 sec rest)
- 2×400 (15 sec rest)
- 3×300 (20 sec rest)
- 4×200 (25 sec rest)
- 5×100 (30 sec rest)
- 6×50 on the minute
- 4×50 sprint (10 sec rest)…in a 25 yard or meter pool, this would have been 8×25 sprints
- Cool Down:
- 300 any stroke
Bike highlights: 68.3 miles
All of my bike miles were indoors last week and I got to put in my last brick session on Saturday before the big dance!

Wednesday was Global Running Day, which was perfectly timed with my split run day. Five easy family miles to start the day and 2 speedy miles to end the day.

2×30 minutes of full body strength training
30 minutes of yoga
