This week was a tough week training wise. Mileage, intensity, and the heat where all up. But sometimes you just have to put your head down and get it done. It felt great putting a huge 'X' over those workouts every day. Specially after Saturdays and today's workout.
I've decided from now until IMTX I really want to focus on my running speed. And remember Carla, my training partner from IMFL? She wants to qualify for Boston this winter. And how do you get faster? Speed workouts. We've been meeting with coach on Saturday mornings (ahhmmm...5:30am) to crank it out. This weekend was mile repeats, which Carla and I both smashed. Since we both have the same great attitudes and really want to get faster - we work through the pain. Positive attitude is everything bitches!
And since we are meeting on Saturday - I also have to squeeze in a long ride. So after giving 110% on the trail, I hopped on my bike and cranked out 3 hours. Needless to day - I was pretty pooped by 10am.
But thankfully I had on my awesome new Betty Design shorts to get me stylishly through my hot ass ride:
As I was pulling up to our house - Big J calls and says "get on your suit - we're heading to the island" An afternoon on the ac on the couch or lounging in the bay on a funnoodle. Hmmm....
Don't forget about my sweet hoo ha compression socks giveaway!
I have mine on right now!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
