Ironman 70.3 Augusta Training Recap: Week 8

Posted Jul 25 2012 9:34am

I’m a little late posting my recap from last week but, I’m back from vacation and back to reality.

I mentioned in my first  post from vacation that we did our research before heading out on our trip of ways to get some training in while on the road. I think we did a pretty decent job considering how jam-packed our vacation was.

I was surprised how much harder everything was at altitude. I’ve run in the mountains before and knew that it wasn’t going to be pretty but I hadn’t even thought about how different swimming felt at high elevation. It definitely makes me appreciate my flat Florida roads a little more.

Monday:

  • Travel Day

Tuesday:

Wednesday:

Thursday:

  • Travel Day

Friday:

Saturday:

  • AM: 5-mile run in the mountains

Sunday:

  • White Water Rafting! I rescued Patrick after he fell out… does that count for open water training? ;-)

That wraps up my second month of training. This week was a little more relaxed than it probably could have been but it was nice to have a couple of days of rest during our trip.

Having some time to recharge my batteries probably did me some good anyway since I have a big weekend coming up.

I’m racing Top Gun Sprint Triathlon  at Ft. DeSoto with a couple of friends. Top Gun was my very first triathlon three years ago and I’ve done it every year since. I’m so looking forward to it!
