becoming a happy adult in a sunny sustainable world.
Well, it’s been another month. And I can honestly say, I didn’t posted because I have been spending soo much time training. Which is good…because the race is just 2 weeks away. The race is just 2 weeks away and I have a goal marathon after that in November. But, I’m already thinking “What’s next?”
And I need to reign that in because so much of what will be next will be determined on September 30 at Augusta 70.3.
I’m happy (mostly) with my last 3 week build cycle, save the cold I caught during the last week that kept me out of my long ride and long run that week. But, I was worn the heck out after those weeks. And it felt good to be so worn out. I was hitting almost all of my workouts (something that hasn’t happened…well…ever). But since that stretch, I’ve had a recovery week and a peak week (less volume more intensity) and I’m already feeling the taper tantrums. One more peak week (only 6 hours of training!) and then taper week…but shit, I don’t know if I can make it. I already feel gross and sluggish. I hate taper time.
Week 4: 8/6-8/12 (recovery)
Week 5: 8/13-8/19
Week 6: 8/20-8/26
A public defender super heroine by day, I am a cupcake baker extraordinaire by night. And come weekend, I am an IronPerson. I deal with an NPR addiction daily and I dream of one day having Carl Kasell on my answering machine. I strive to be the best fur-mommy I can be, and when I have time, I'm learning to be a grownup.
