Block 8 - Week 3

9/14 - 9/20

Swim 13,100 yd
Bike 13 hrs.
Run 21 mi.

So monday through wednesday were really difficult because I was toast from PG last weekend but I forced myself to get in a couple of good runs and swims. A hard ride on tuesday and some long steady efforts on thursday.

I was still tired by sunday morning but the muscles recovered well enough to get up and go hard on sunday for the sentinel.

Race Notes:

Experienced good strategy in an open water swim for the first time...finding a young local kid that is a swimming phenom and actually drafted for the first time. Really felt great coming out of the water...a first!

Need to get better aero position worked out on my bike and learn how to pace time trialing on rollers...found myself accelerating and recovering rather than riding evenly.

Rode to warm up rather than running and I think that worked well.

Run time was my best 10k so far...the last mile I was barely hanging on to pace/consciousness/life and had to sit down at the finish line...fall down really.
