After a nice week of recovery from completely blistered feet, a swollen shut eye, and a sliced open foot, it was time to regroup and figure out what to do and where to go from here. I had already registered for Augusta 70.3, but was looking for another fall race–hopefully a cool race. After much debate between Rev3FL and Beach 2 Battleship half, I decided on a trip to Wilmington.
There are many things that make me excited for B2B: I have a good record with Setup Events Halfs, I have a lot of family in Wilmington, it’s an easy 4ish hour drive from Aug, and I can take my pupperoos. Oh, and did I tell you it’s normally cool? Yea, that’s important too.
I’ve decided that B2B on October 26th will be my fall A race and August 70.3 on September 29th will just be a long, well supported, very expensive training day. And, after regrouping and selecting my next A race, it was time to get back at it with training. The first week back at it (just the second week after Eman) was tough. I felt like crap and had zero motivation. Every swim workout was a mental battle to stay in the pool. Every run was a mental battle to keep myself running through *just the next block* and then the next. And I was dropped on the hills every. single. ride.
Even with all that, I managed a double digit training week.
Week T-18 6/17/13
And after my legs got 2-3 weeks out from Eagleman, they started to get a bit of spunk and things were easier the next week. Not *easy*…but easier.
Week T-17 6/24/13
Ok, gotta get myself out on the road now. I slept ALL day today! ALL DAY, seriously. What else is a 4th of July holiday for if not sleeping all day?
