I increased my total distance quite a bit on this build, with a few more cycling and swimming miles. I do a 21 day cycle of two weeks of building with a few high-intensity sessions, then the 3rd week is the easy recovery week, but I tacked on a long bike ride at the end, even after donating plasma a few days before. This is in addition to 50 miles a week bike commute which I don't count.
What last couple of weeks looks like:
|SWIM + TRX||SPIN + RUN (speed)||TEMPO RUN + strength||SWIM||SPIN + RUN EZ||LONG BIKE||SWIM|
I have less than 2 weeks before race day! My goal is to finish the race in under 3 hours. I will be building up again then a quick taper. Thanks to Fresh Air Bicycles for tuning up my bike! It feels brand new! I raised the seat about a half inch and is perfect for riding all day long. For the race I will downsize all the accessories. I am not going to do aero bars because I felt more comfortable last year without them. Instead, I will just use the drop bars. My bike fit is so perfect that I don't want to mess with it. I rode the Marin Tri course on Saturday on the Lucas Valley Populaire and am getting really psyched for race day.
