Yo! I’m back in Bellingham now after a wonderful week at the lake. It’s amazing how one week can FLY by. Now it’s back to reality…
I was able to get in 17 miles of running during the week, but no swimming. I felt that was a good amount of running for being on vacation, but I’m ready to get some serious sweating in this week. I got back to the Y today and ran 6 miles and did some lifting. I’m sure I’ll feel the weights tomorrow morning cause I haven’t lifted in about a week and a half.
I can’t go too hard with training this week because I have the Danskin Triathlon on Sunday. I’m not gonna lie, I think I’m the least prepared for this race both physically and mentally than the others I’ve done. I think it’s due to being on vacation last week and being a little burnt out from training for multi-sport events. I really want to concentrate on my running for the rest of the year, but I definitely don’t want to loose everything I gained in training over the last 8 months. So, I’m planning to start pushing more time into the running bucket, but still bike and swim to keep my endurance/speed up.
Although I have to go back to work in the morning and face a really full inbox, I do have something to look forward to: Aaron comes home on Wednesday! He has been gone since the end of April and I can’t wait to see him! I’ve missed him a lot.
And I’ll leave you with some photos from my vacation. I’ll be posting some in posts throughout the week. Enjoy.
Be back tomorrow!
