Not for long!
I had intended to do an AM/PM workout on Thursday, take Friday as a rest day and then brick on Saturday. I only lost one workout as a result of my flesh on bumper affair. I took Thursday evening off and instead toasted my blessed good fortune with copious amounts of adult beverage. I rested Friday as planned and then on Saturday dug in.
I did 42+ miles on the bike at about 19 mile per hour, followed by a 5 mile run at approximately a 7:30/mile pace**. On Sunday I went for a 12 mile run at an 8:35/mile pace.
Thus far triathlon training is an exercise in time management and also in fatigue management. I am working out on average 7-9 times a week and taking one rest day per week. Packing 2,000 meters in the pool or a 20-mile ride in the morning followed by an evening run is not at all uncommon.
Never once in my life have I been as fit as I am today.
This Sunday will be my very first foray into multi-sport competition. I will be participating in the Queens Biathlon. The race is a 5k run / 20 mile bike / 5k run course and I fully intend to drop the hammer.
“You must either conquer and rule or serve and lose, suffer or triumph, be the anvil or the hammer.”
