Week 51 of 2009 was my toughest triathlon training week yet and it had a few milestones.1) It is the first time I’ve run 8-miles! Yes, I almost into the double digit run workouts.
2) It is the first time I’ve biked up Ortega Ridge Rd in Montecito, going from sea level to 500+ feet. Awesome ride.
3) It was also the first week that I swam more than one lap in the pool with the forward crawl stroke.
4) The first week in more than two months where I’ve had all four workout types: swim, bike, run, strength. While this week was tough, it was fabulously productive. I feel great exiting this week and am looking forward to a lighter recovery week next week. For more of my triathlon training and race results, click here.
