If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

2 Weeks to Ironman Arizona

IMAG2978 Monday, October 27, 2014: after missing my run yesterday due to 70.3 sherpa duty, I ran today. 1:30. I did 4 miles outside but kept running out of sidewalks so ended up begging entry into a Gold's Gym and finishing 4.4 more miles on the treadmill. Hey, whatever works! 8.4 miles total. Lunch with friends in Austin and hit the road towards home. Made it just east of Lake Charles for some shut eye.
Tuesday, October 28, 2014: finished the drive home, picked up Jake, unpacked, and rested!! A long drive really takes it out of ya! I put my bike on the trainer and got ready for a 1:15 bike ride when I remembered that she got injured in Austin! The crank is clunking. Oh no! She needs to see a doc ASAP!! So I'm taking her in tomorrow... I feel lazy :/
Wednesday, October 29, 2014: shot in the butt, bike's in the shop, 2.485 mile swim in the books. Boom!
Thursday, October 30, 2014: 3 hour bike ride and 1 hour run. My bike was slow - windy :/ but my run was SOLID. Satisfied with 56 miles and 5.6 miles. Bike and run ^^ ha ha, get it. Nice pic, right!?
Friday, October 31, 2014: I ain't afraid of no ghost! Happy Halloween! Headed to Slidell to work at the shop over there. I really need to get another swim in before the weekend but I might run out of time today :/ It's okay to have  a rest day. Especially when you're tired. And Saturday and Sunday are going to be filled with some solid hours.

Saturday, November 1, 2014: timed a cross country meet this morning. Very exciting and what a brain workout! A chilly chilly morning on the coast today. We are in the 50's. WHAT!? I'm not ready for any kind of cold. ICK! But I did get a solid 2 hour run in - 12 miles. Actually grabbed Jake for the last 2 miles and ran on the trail behind my house. Spent the rest of the day packing up my life.

Sunday, November 2, 2014: I took an optional rest day. It was COLD this morning. It's still cold. I haven't changed out of my pi's all day. I did continue to pack my house though and pack for Arizona. And tons of play time with Jake.

A lighter week headed into taper... (okay I probably got a little too lazy this week but for real, I was tired!). Next week, while still tapering, I'll hit some SOLID mileage and work on race specific/speed stuff. Let's do this!
Swim: 2.5 miles
Bike: 56 miles
Run: 26 miles
