My week leading up to my race was full of nerves, deadlines, and wrapping up loose ends. Wherever you look in the triathlon world, it is universally recommended that you sleep as much as you can prior to your race. The benefits are not only for your body, but your mind as well. I failed completely at this. Prior to leaving Thursday, I had yet to accumulate more than 4-5 hours of sleep a night...
Summer is back!! It's been (what feels like) the longest winter in years. And as much as I was "dedicated" to the occational inside workout, there really is no substitute for a perfect spring weekend to lay down some serious miles.
I'm 10 weeks out now from Ironman Canada 70.3, and as we all know, weekends become the time to focus and prepare for those long race efforts we're all gunning for.
Updates be damned. It works, I like it. I'll keep using it as long as I can. Final grade on our super sophisticated grading scale? 18.7 out of a possible 23.2. Losing marks only for the stupid blinky lights and precarious charging cradle. I'm happy, and if I'm happy life is not crappy.
It's training season and I just did my first brick training session of the year. As I obviously let the world know this on Instagram ... I received a few questions along the lines of - "What the hell is a brick session? Why do you do them?"
