Pac Crest weeks #17 & #18

28 May

I have officially moved into my Pacific Crest(PC) training. I am just going to continue the weeks from Wildflower. I feel like I have yet to get back into the routine of things. I had Wildflower, Bend training weekend, and RNR Portland. I went to Eugene last weekend. It has been nice. I do most of my workouts. The weather has been nice. I have a ton of commuting miles.
PC

I have my base set up. I am just working on speed right now. I have Blue Lake Olympic in 2 weeks. I have PC long course in 5 weeks. Deschutes Dash Olympic in 7 weeks. That will round out my triathlons for the year! I can not believe June is in a few days! Crazy talk!

Miles are low(ish) but here they are:

PC training week #17
Swim: 8500 meters
Bike: 91 miles (25 road miles and 66 commuting miles)
Run: 17.1 miles

1 pilates class

PC training week #18
Swim: 8300 meters
Bike: 116 miles (60 road miles and 56 commuting miles)
Run: 9.5 miles

1 pilates class


Here is a video from what looks like 2010! Last year the weather was super crappy. Lets hope that it is as nice as this year! I did it in 2008 and 2009. It was HOT!!

What is your next race? Blue Lake Oly

Is there something you are focusing on in particular? Getting faster; Always working on mental strength

    I’m doing my first tri of the year this weekend! A sprint distance. Then hopefully I’ll do an olympic distance in early August. Way to keep up on the training through your other races and weekends away!

    I love how many races you participate in! I hope the wather is great for you.
    My next race is actually tonight (a 5k) and then on Sunday I’m doing a half Ironman. Yikes!

      I love doing races! It is the fun part of training! 🙂
      OMG..you are doing a half this weekend?? Which one? GOOD LUCK!! (and on the 5k tonight too!!)

        The 5km got cancelled tonight due to thunderstorms 😦
        We’re doing the Oliver half Ironman in BC. I’ve heard it’s a good one!
        We just signed up for it a few weeks ago. I’ve been keeping it on the down low because I’m going to really take it easy if my knee hurts so I don’t ruin anything for CdA!
