Pre-Race Week Workouts

Last week was a bit of a step back week for me. After signing up for St. Anthony's Triathlon a few weeks ago I decided I should make a go of it. So, this week I stepped back a little bit, but I wouldn't say it was a full taper. Maybe it was just a mini-taper.

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: I spent the day walking around Epcot, so that in and of itself is a workout. Could this day be considered a triple workout?
AM: 1 hour on the trainer before work 
PM: 6 mile run after Epcot all day with 4 miles at tempo. The 4 miles at tempo were 7:52 pace.

Wednesday: 1.2 mile open water swim in the Gulf. I had fun meeting Tori down there and was glad to find Nick there as well. We played around a little before the group swim, and then we got started and got down to business. It was a little choppy, but it was good preparation for St. Anthony's on Sunday.

Thursday: 3.1 mile run at a slow pace. I felt so sick on this run and had to stop at the gas station. It reminded me that I need to be more careful of what I eat before I go run.

Friday: I took an extra rest day since St. Anthony's was Sunday. All I was slated for was a swim, but that just wasn't going to happen.

Saturday: 7 mile bike ride to shakeout followed by a 2 mile run. Then later in the day I swam about 750 yards at the St. Anthony's finish. 

Sunday: St. Anthony's Olympic Triathlon! I had a great, great day! I'll have my recap up tomorrow, but I finished in 2:35:44 and got 5th in my age group. It was a great race day!

I'll have a semi-recovery week, though it won't be much of a step back, then I'll be back at it. Ironman training officially starts next week! How thrilling/terrifying!
