Ramping up the time

July 5, Day 143

Today’s Workouts: 90min bike, 30 minutes in Z1, 50 minutes Z2, 10 minutes Z1; 1500y swim, 150y Z1, 6x200y Z3, 150y Z1 

Yesterday’s workouts: 60min run, 5 minutes Z1, 21 minutes Z2, 3 x (5 minutes Z3/3 minutes Z1) 5 minutes Z2, 5 minutes Z1


Here we go, about to roll less than 100 days left to the event.  Must be time to ramp up the distance and time commitment.

I’m actually a little surprised it took this long, but not a lot.  You can’t put that much strain on your body for that long a period without risking injury or exhaustion, so it makes sense to build a nice solid base.  However, 20 weeks in and I’m ready to get some of the experience of being out there for more time under my belt.

Be careful what you wish for.

This week I’m seeing 90 min bikes (this morning) as part of a double workout day, swims that are finally getting past 2000y (Friday, 2250) and 2.5 hour Saturday bike, with intervals.  Sunday’s run is still 90 min, but that will ramp up soon enough.  It’s during the heat of the summer too, which will make it all the more difficult.  Yesterday’s run was in almost 100% humidity, and even under 80 degrees that’s murderous to do intervals in.  I came back soaked with sweat and gross.  I’ll skip the after shot and just stick with the before shot while I was still optimistic.


Yes, that’s my guest bathroom.  Don’t have a better photo studio.  Sorry.  >_>

At some point this week I’ll have to make another trip to KC.  The bad news is, the Apple store guys couldn’t fix the strange battery loss issue I am having in one of my two AirPods.  The GOOD news is, they are replacing them for free.  The worse news is, they didn’t have any is stock so they are hoping to get a replacement in this week.  And they can’t ship it direct to me because they need me to pick it up in person because, reasons.

Oh well.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th, and enjoyed it more than my Aussie who spent the evening scared to death of all the loud noises outside.  Poor girl.
