Week 14: S2/B70/R13
A mandatory scaled back week. 6 workouts plus bike to work everyday. The weather has been cold and rainy, though not nearly as cold as most cities get during winter. My friend let me borrow a trainer and some aerobars:
It takes a bit of getting used to aerobar position. The longest ride so far is 2 hours.
Week 15: S/2/B85/R13
Turned out to be pretty scaled back also, with 8 workouts plus BTW everyday. Having to prepare taxes and side projects is affecting my training. I volunteered to help out with Water World Swim because it is my swim group and I love swimming with them. I feel it's important to pitch in where I can, plus it helps me to help other athletes. Though the temps have dipped, the open water feels great. I can't let a week go by without it!
Preparing for an early spring tri is kind of a challenge, because the weather is crap for cycling, plus it gets dark early. But I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing. If you think cycling indoors is boring, check out this guy who has cycled 10,000 miles in the last 3 months.
One month left until the triathlon. REALLY???!!!!
