This week I finished my last few tough workouts and began my rest break before Vineman 70.3 a week from today. I ended on a high note with training, feeling great and hitting my targets durring tough workouts but as per usual my body does not respond well to rest and I have not felt al that great since I started taking it easy mid week. I know that I will come out the other end of the rest feeling better but I always feel so run down and awful when I am resting that it is hard to maintain even a mediocre mental state.
I did do some fun stuff this week though. There was a three mile open water swim on the 4th of july which was awesome, and with the pressure off we had some time to get out for a few adventures.
Swim 13,000 yds
Bike 8 hrs
Run 26.5 mi
