Anyway, not much to report other than that my school is on February break next week! (Way to hook you in with a real audience killer. eh? "not much to report..." ) Last year, this meant a 500 mile bike week. This year, it means train hard, not too long, and recover well. Since I gave up logging my workouts, I won't have any freakouts that I'm "not doing enough" or "not tired/haggard enough". I need to remind myself that I am not Ironman training right now, so the volume should feel a little different. Funny, now that I'm not decimating myself every week, my T-runs are 7 minute pace rather than 8 minute pace without killing myself. Progress? We shall see on race day!
Not sure what I will do with my extra "free time" next week. We have a second bedroom that is really just James' "office", an ancient crappy ikea bed, and his chest of drawers that is literally falling apart and busted open at the seams. So, operation 2nd bedroom? My problem (do you have this problem?) is that when we like to spend our money on racing and travel, it's hard to justify the extra expenses to invest in a nice new room. I declare my 30s the time to move (mostly) on from IKEA, and this is the last IKEA room standing. Time to go down! I'm off to take a "before" picture, maybe that will motivate me.
Ok, before we move on to next week, it's time to finish this one off. It's been good so far....
|A 3-hour ride with the "enemy"..Thanks for the lead out B & L boys Keith & Jose, but I'm still a Nytro girl as long as they put up with me!|
|Testing out the 2012 Zoot gear. LOVING their Ultra Team Cycle Apparel (by "Team" they mean everyone...get yours!)|
|Great minds....Kristin and I showed up to Rehab United strength sesh in matching Zoots (her: TT 5.0, me Tempo 5.0 ) & purple tights & black tops... Geeks squared!|
That's all I got, friends! Enjoy the weekend!
