|My first (of three) treadmills last Thursday|
Like that? I broke the treadmill! I know they shut down at a certain pace (its the YMCA, people) if you go "too fast" for more than 30 seconds, but I had forgotten which pace. Turns out its about 5:40/mi .
After all that system overload, James and I were ready for a recovery week. Lucky for me, it's also a taper week. The big news around here is not that I'm racing Timberman 70.3 in New Hampshire this weekend (but I am). The big news is that my sixty year old mother is racing her very first half ironman at Timberman 70.3 . Can you believe it? My mom, Robin, lives across the country, but turns out this blog has been good for at least one thing..About a year ago she decided to train for her first triathlon (after reading all about how fun it is on this here internet space) and now she's totally hooked. Can't wait to report on Mom's big race!
So, we've been going big on recovery here this week. James is very serious about sleeping. And he very seriously has no idea I took this picture.
