My training volume for IMAZ has REALLY started getting intense!! With only 6 weeks left, my long bike rides are getting into the 5-6hr. range and my long runs are nearing the 2:30 mark. So far, I am feeling good. I haven't had any problems with my knee (woohoo!) and I feel like I'm getting stronger every week! :)
BUT, there have been times when I'm relaxing with my boys on the couch reading books and I feel myself starting to fade. I know that if I could, I would be able to just lay down and take a nap! Ha ha!
But, like this picture, if I did that, who knows what kind of mischief my boys would get in to! :)
Last weekend I did a 90M bike/6M run brick and the weather was perfect!! This weekend, not so much! Check out the forecast for the weekend:
Umm....I was supposed to be doing a 5hr/1hr. brick on Saturday outside. BUT, that WON'T be happening!! I am a cold wuss!! Plus, I don't really like the idea of being outside in freezing temps and rain! Sunday is clear, but don't let that fool you. The temps. in the AM will still be COLD, COLD, COLD!!! So, because of the weather, I have decided to do it on my trainer/treadmill! I'm going to aim for getting up at 4AM and just knocking it out!
I'll be watching this, twice, which I've been saving for a long trainer day.
Hopefully I'll make it through!!
Have any of you ever done a 5hr. trainer ride??? How did you survive it??
Other Things Too:
Remember this ugly blood blister I got? Well, after reading all of your comments, I was all set to pop it, lube it up with ointment, and put on some mole skin. BUT, the next day, when I woke up, it actually wasn't that bad. So, I decided to just let it be. Now, it still looks pretty gross, but it's healing nicely!!
The other day my son came running downstairs as proud as can be because he had gotten dressed all by himself. (Normally we still have to help him with his shirt)! This is how he "dressed" himself!! His pants were inside out and his shirt was on backwards!!! Ha ha! My husband and I tried so hard not to laugh because he was so proud of himself, but he was just a complete mess! :)
I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
I'm excited to watch some of the live feed from KONA! I think it's going to be a really exciting race this year!!! :)
