I don't know why I felt so sluggish this week. Don't know if it was because of the Tri I did on Sunday, but I just was unmotivated this week.
Monday was a 2500 meter swim in the pool in the am. It started out with the pool guy being late..ugh..
Had a good swim though. Finished my set within an hour.
Tuesday morning I got up early and ran my Favorte 4 Mile course. My legs felt like lead although I had under a 9 min mile pace which is great for me. Work was crazy and I don't even think I got 24 oz of fluid in me all day long so I figured my afternoon workout would be tough. I guessed right. About 10 min on the trainer and I was finished. My heart rate was soaring and I was just dead.
Wednesday I got up early and went to Williams Beach to Swim. It was like a whirlpool in the middle of the lake!!! I managed to get a decent 1 mile swim in. Was disappointed in my time but felt that would make any triathlon seem easier!!
Thursday morning I got up early again to do my run. I was scheduled for a 2 hour run but got up too late and dragged my butt out to do at least an hour...Yet again I felt like stone...someone light a fire under my keester please!!
Today I went for a 1.2 mile swim in 40 min. We went out with a dozen people this morning to the lake. It was calm and beautiful. What a way to spend the morning!! I finally felt good after all this week of terribleness!! A lady I was swimming with said she looked up to see where I was and all she saw was my arms. She said I was a quiet swimmer....woo ha for me!! :)
Tomorrow Ill be tackling the Hilly, Challenging Syracuse70.3 course with a dozen or so people and am so excited as Im finally feeling up to training again. 3 weeks until race day and I feel run down...I hope this is a normal feeling and it will pass within the next week or so....
