We have had a crazy fun week. Lots of fun training and chilling. I got in a 4K swim last week in the DU pool. I felt really good and quite consistent and finished in 1:16:52. This gives me confidence that I may just be able to get out of the Ironman swim in under 1:15 and feel good doing so. Andrea and I swimming side by side:
This weekend I joined up with Anthony and Kim for a 16 mile run. We ran all around Highlands Ranch and shook our heads at the monstrous houses on tiny lots.
Then I took a little break, fueled up with some Jamba Juice, and headed over to meet Amy D for another 70 minute run. That one was a little tougher, but Amy was patient and we got to catch up on each others happenings.
Today is a chill day. It's kinda nasty out so Troy and I decided we would trade off riding the trainer...over and over again. I have a 4 hour bike with speed work, so:
And over and over and over. It's been pretty fun. Not how I would want to spend every Sunday of my life, but I lack consistency and motivation when it comes to working on the trainer, so it's time I attacked it and got over some of the mental hurdles I have surrounding biking in my living room.
All in all it's been a great week. Things on the Wieck family front are pretty awesome right now, and I am really starting to look forward to my future months of hard training. Troy is enjoying getting back into shape...just in time to start studying for his next exam. Arg!
