So, rest week did not go so well. I'm leaving it behind. It's in the past.
Today was my first workout after rest week.
A 90 minute run.
Let me just say it was great to be back! Actually for the first 50 minutes the run did not feel great. It felt like a relentless chore. Thankfully it was only about 80 degrees out and the park is always nice in the mornings.
When I got to the "meat" of the run (some zone 3 work) things started looking up! I got into a rhythm and found it was much easier to go with the quicker pace than the slow plodding pace I started out with. I was tempted to walk one time but caught myself.
Another highlight of my week was receiving my Multisport Mastery race kit in the mail on Monday. It was just the extra bit of motivation I needed to get out there and run. Best tri outfit ever, hands down! The large fits me perfectly. Nothing pinches, nothing rides up, it's extremely comfortable. Can't wait to do my long ride in it this weekend!
So next time rest week comes around (about three weeks from now) I'm going to hold myself accountable to do all the workouts during rest week right here. On my blog.
Oh and my 69 year old phenom training partner, Tony should be back from his vacation in time for this weekend's long workouts. THANK GOD. I've been so spoiled these past few months training every day with Tony. I hope he wants to do the long stuff. I'm sure he will do a lot of it with me.
