The week started off really weak. My poor pup had seizures three nights in a row. His epilepsy surfaces maybe twice a year like this. He has a grand mal, which is followed by constant pacing in half-blind state. That's when I grab his leash and we go for brisk walk outside at 1am. Then 2 hours later, followed by another one. The first night this happened 3 times. The seizures gradually decrease in intensity over the next few days. We're so thankful to have found the right meds and diet for him - this used to happen every 2 months!
I can't think of anything worse for your body and mind than no sleep. He was very exhausted also by the end of it.
I postponed my interval run and plan to up my bike and swim mileage. Here is what the fancy interval run looked like, it's from a FIRST training plan:
I sandwiched this run in some hills, because I heard BSIM is hilly. Maybe I need to check the elevation chart.
Sunday Swims - an excellent swim in the bay. We had a nice big group full of folks training for the ESCAPE. Joseph said it was like a party! The water party was followed by a nice long 20 mile run on the Coastal Bliss loop. It was so windy I got sandblasted at Baker and Ocean beach. It's fun to watch the hawks hang stationary in the wind without flapping their wings. I love my "aid station" at JAVA BEACH! They have bagels, croissants, pastries, and there is water at the very end of the bar. Surprisingly, I actually had energy after my run and stepped out with my man. Maybe it's because I stayed fueled up throughout the run. I wasn't starving afterwards.
Looking forward to another Alcatraz swim this month, time to up the mileage. I think I'm most nervous about the Century and getting prepared for it at the same time as getting prepared for a marathon, but will do my best. The spring events will put me in a good place for the summer triathlon.
