Accountability: 6 Weeks
Monday, Aug 17:
After a rainy morning, I was excited to see sunshine so I could swim. I moved back onto the Navy Base in Gulfport so the pool is next door. YAY! Once I started swimming I realized how tired I was, probably from the weekend. So I was after 3000m but wrapped it up at 2900. I felt okay about it at one hour.
Later that night I joined Run-N-Tri Monday Fun Run. I ran 2.25 with a TOA athlete and 2 more hard and fast with another friend. 40 minutes total.

Worked at the shop today. Was able to catch a 1 hour trainer ride after work.
Wednesday, Aug 19:
Grabbed a 2:40 bike this morning followed by lunch with a sweet friend, triathlon prep for Cultivation Nation, and sushi with a friend. Another rainy day kept us out of the pool.
Thursday, Aug 20:
Woke up early to grab a 2:30 run before it got too hot.
Not enough miles to brag about, but definitely a long hot run.
Friday, Aug 21:
2,500m (1.55 mile) swim at the Base this morning as 300 easy, 300 kick, then 6 x 150 pull descend, 6 x 100 pull descend, and 6 x 50 pull descend, and 100 cool down. It was a tough workout!!
Worked at the shop after.
Saturday, Aug 22:
Shot out early for a 90min speed workout on the bike. 20min warm up, 10 x 2mins hard + 2mins recovery, cool down. Topped that with a 20min, 2mile brick run.
Worked at the shop the rest of the day.

Flint Creek Water Park fun with Team TOA and friends! We swam continuous (open water) for 30mins. Ended up with about 1400 yards. We hit the road for a 3 hour bike ride finishing up HOT, HILLY, WINDY ride with 50 miles and Mimosa's. Love this group of triathletes!!
A solid week. I thought and felt like I had done so much but looking back, it was a bit of a lighter week. I wish I could have hit a longer bike Sunday but I ran out of "cool" morning and HOT AS HECK afternoon moved in quick. I feel good being back on my bike and in a groove. Ironman Barcelona is so close!!
