This is so overdue I can’t even believe that I am going to post it! It will be short and sweet!!!

IMC Training Week #16
Swim: 11,800 yards
Bike: 97 miles
Run: 37.35 miles
Core: 2 sessions
Strength: 1 session

Great overall week!! A lot of swimming. Still feeling good in the water! In masters we did 50’s on the 1:01 again and I did 2 more than I did last time!!! I was pretty excited about that!! πŸ™‚ Biking was good. NOT great!

Runs this week were exceptionally good. Not sure why?! Started off with RNR P-Town 1/2 marathon. I did some hill repeats that felt amazing! The 1st run in Sunriver felt great. I wish I could have said that for the rest of that weekend!!

IMC Training Week #17
Swim: 9,500 yards
Bike: 150 miles
Run: 32 miles
Core: 0
Strength: 0

Felt a little blah after coming back from Sunriver but I guess that means that camp “worked!!”
Swims were good! First open water swim of the year!! Felt awesome! The water temperature was perfect!!

Bike rides were good!

We had a 5K run test on the schedule that went way better than I could have hoped! πŸ™‚ 18 mile run that also went relatively well for being hard, hilly, on my own, with no music!! #mentaltoughness

Triathlon season is here!! It is June!! Which means IMC is almost HERE!!

    Just looking at your training schedule makes me tired! I honestly do not know how you triathletes do it! Just your running alone is nuts. But, that’s why you are awesome!

    Your training sounds like it’s going so well! If you weren’t a little blah after Sunriver I’d be worried!!
