Training is going okay this week.
On Monday I was able to swim for an hour and then get in a 55 min/5.5 mi run with my wife. Tuesday came and I was scheduled to do an indoor trainer ride and I could not. I had the time but my body was exhausted. I went back and looked at my calendar and realized that a rest day was last used 18 days ago. No wonder I was beat. So I took Tuesday as a recovery day and then started Wednesday morning feeling rested and got in a hard 45 minute swim. Then yesterday morning I got up and went for a 13.41 mile run in 2:00. I looked at my Garmin and my 1/2 Mary split time was 1:57. So I had a nice sub-2hr 1/2 Mary on a training run. It was a beautiful 58 degree Texas morning!
For tonight and Saturday I have to work a CE seminar downtown. I plan on a nice 2hr spin later tonight and then another 2hr spin on Saturday night (Annie is working - so Jeff gets to train on Sat night!). On Sunday my Tri Club has an Open Water Swim scheduled in the afternoon so I am in for that but will also try to get a ride in on Sunday morning before the swim. If I am feeling okay I might go for a run (30 minutes) after the swim as well.
In a nutshell, that is my week so far. I hated taking the rest day but in hindsight it was the smart thing to do.
Also on Tuesday night I did my Fantasy Baseball draft. My pitching staff is just dirty. The offense is going to be average but the pitching should pick us up!
