I hit 2 of the 6.4k runs and then my long run of 10k.
As if training for a half marathon wasn't enough, I think I'm going to try and do a sprint triathlon in August. I've wanted to do another one and the Porter's Lake Triathlon is a new one to the circuit so I might give it a tri (see what I did there). I was watching the Ironman Kona yesterday and it always inspires me to do more and keep training. The race director of the Boston Marathon completed the Ironman this year....amazing!!!
In anticipation, I found this book at Chapters the other night when I was there.
|Love when I score books on the cheap table!|
August 2 - Not Since Moses - a 5k run on the ocean floor
August 15 - 5k Foam Fest - Obstacle Course race
August 23 - Porter's Lake Triathlon
So I guess I really need to step up the bike and swim training!! I know when I did the Try a Tri in February, my winter cross training really paid off during the swim...my arms just felt stronger!!
The one thing I do find difficult is that I like that I've put on more muscle but it makes running a little bit tougher. This year, I am carrying around 8lbs of muscle that I didn't have last year and therefore my running times have slowed down a bit. It's a fine balance I think...I need to work on that!
So there you have it, my training recap. Next week I hope to have added at least one bike ride and swim. Let's see if I can stay accountable to that!!!
Does any one have any summer goals that they are trying to hit?
