Good morning and Happy Friday! As I mentioned last week, I'll be recapping my tri training each Friday :)
Saturday- Ran 2 miles
Sunday- Swam 40 laps
Monday- Biked 8 miles
Wednesday- Ran 2.5 miles
Thursday- Swam intervals- 30 laps
Overall, it was a good week of training. I continue to love swimming, and I continue to try to find people to bike with because I just do not love it and get seriously bored while on my bike haha. Another small issue I ran into at the end of this week was weather.
I was planning to do a swim/bike combination where I bike to the gym, swim while I'm there and then bike home. I planned out the route because I am terrified of biking on roads (I always go on the path) and I wanted to see how wide the streets were and what intersections I'd be going through. Then I woke up yesterday morning and it was rainy with chances of thunderstorms ALL day. Now, I don't really mind running in that kind of weather because the place I run, I'm never more than half a mile away from my car. However, when biking I could be 8-10 miles away and then have a huge thunderstorm hit and I have no idea what exactly I would do (I could potentially call Eric to get me but where am I going to wait in the meantime?). Yesterday I just decided to do a swim, and then today we have the same weather so I am going to go to yoga. Hopefully next week I'll be able to get in more bike rides to make up for it!
Next week I'm hoping to get in: 1 bike ride, 1 run, 1 brick (bike/run), and then 2 swims 1 in open water and one in the pool.
How does weather affect your training? What do you do when the weather is not good?
What are you up to this weekend? Tell me one fun thing you have planned :) I have a few fun things planned: visiting my friend who just had a baby, going out to dinner with friends tonight, and Katie's baby shower tomorrow, wahoo!
