What a bummer of a week last week. I’m still in recovery mode, but things are looking better. With just four weeks until my “race” day, I’m trying to be very careful with what I decide to do. Recovery is my top priority, but I still don’t want to lose all the fitness I’ve gained so far. This week will be interesting, and telling. Fingers crossed!
Here’s what I’m working with this week:
- Monday :: REST / yoga
- Tuesday :: Interval Bike :: 90min
- Wednesday:: Interval Swim :: 3200m
- Thursday:: Brick :: 140km Bike + 20km Run
- Friday:: Recovery Bike :: 30-45 min
- Saturday :: Open Water Swim :: 3000m @ R.P. + 5km Run @ R.P.
- Sunday :: REST / yoga
