It is hard to believe we are only 16 weeks away from Ironman Boulder. This was the last big week before a much needed recovery week. It was full of rainy weather, lots of bike bottle washing, lots of technical fabric laundry and preparing lots of food to put in the freezer that we can pull out for a quick, healthy meal.
Swim: 7300 yards in 2 hours & 45 minutes
Overall, my swimming this week were very positive. Tuesday’s swim was even my #FaveWorkout of the week. I felt like I had good form in the pool and was able to maintain a solid pace when not working on drills.
Bike: 46.9 miles in 3 hours & 30 minutes
This week’s rides involved some #intervals, some Zone 2 work, lots of sweat and even more #bikelove.
Run: 25.2 miles in 3 hours & 53 minutes
I had some AMAZING runs this week that included LOTS of #runlove. Tuesday’s run taught me to #NeverGiveUp and persevere. After this run, I felt on top of the world!! Saturday’s 16 mile run was also a really good run. I felt strong, I felt energized, I felt amazing, I felt happy during the longest run of the season.
Brick: 51.8 miles in 4 hours
Sunday was our only brick workout this week…3:30:00 on the trainer followed by a 30 minute run. I actually felt like I could have gone longer and faster on the run, but decided not to push things and take advantage of a slower run where I’m just logging the miles after Saturday’s LONG run.
Strength Training: 2:15:00
I had a good strength session on Monday, an awesome TRX workout on Thursday and a solid core work session on Saturday.
There was LOTS of compression, LOTS of Osmo Nutrition Recovery, LOTS of Pure Clean Powder beet juice powder, LOTS of healthy whole foods for refueling, a massage, many salt baths and a couple of naps this week.
Weekly Totals: 16 hours and 23 minutes
