Hey, hey—happy Sunday! How was your weekend? Yesterday, I completed a super-sprint indoor triathlon (500-yard swim, 12-mile bike, and 3-mile run) with some of my Full Throttle Endurance teammates. It was so much fun, and it went really well! Recap will go live tomorrow! Afterward, a few teammates and I grabbed “triathlete brunch” (normal brunch starts at 11 a.m.; triathlete brunch starts at 9 a.m.—ha!). Even though we see each other regularly at practice, it was nice to hangout without swimming, biking, or running. We obviously had to celebrate our first “race” of the season, so spiked hot chocolate for all!
I have no regrets. Last night, I got dinner and frozen yogurt with my friend Sara. Again, no pictures and no regrets. Great day overall!
Anyway, recovery week has ended, so it’s back to normal workouts. As always, these next seven days will be packed, but I’m changing up the order of some sessions: Andrew invited me to a swimming and running “race” the FTE racing team is having on Thursday: 100-yard swim, 0.25-mile run, 200-yard swim, 0.5-mile run, 300-yard swim, 0.75-mile run, 400-yard swim, 1-mile run, 500-yard swim, 1.25-mile run. He says it will hurt, and I appreciate his honesty. Oh, and we also have our second two-mile running time trial tomorrow morning. And not that I need a reason to get after it this week, but my first official race of the season is basically one month away.
Nautica South Beach, I’m coming for you!
Time for Write It Down, Do It Up!
(If you’re new to WIDDIU, here’s how it works: Every Sunday evening, I post my workout schedule for the week, and I invite you to do the same. This way, we can motivate each other and hold ourselves accountable. Sounds like a win-win, right?)
Monday – a.m. run with Full Throttle Endurance (FTE)
Tuesday – a.m. bike and strength train
Wednesday – off
Thursday – FTE swim-run “race”
Friday – a.m. swim with FTE; a.m. run
Saturday – a.m. swim with FTE
Sunday – off/easy run
When is your next race? Do you count down to big events too?
