The Sunday Report

Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there, including my own!!  Thanks for all you do everyday!!  Here's a little peek into our morning.

This picture is so hysterical, I'm not even going to explain all the craziness in it.  Suffice it to say, it was a pretty normal morning at our house, only there were presents and crowns...and fins!!!

This was a great week of training for me.  I'm sitting now in my Recovery Pump boots as I type and revel in the hard work that was accomplished.   Only 4 weeks (yikes, my belly just flipped flopped when I double-checked on my calendar to be sure of how many weeks) until my first A race of the season, Musselman Half-Ironman.  I have a pretty lofty goal for this race, and I've been a bit nervous about where my training has been. This was a great week for me to realize I have more in my bank than I thought.  Yes, there is still work to do, and my run fitness, well, it probably won't be where I want it to be, but I definitely have some oomph left in me and that is a great feeling!!  I love the direction Coach Mary is taking with my training this season.  As a coach, I totally get it, but as an athlete sometimes you have to trust and believe.  At the beginning of the week I was just trusting this was the right thing, but I wasn't convinced.  At the end of the week, I know it was the right thing.  I love it when Coach proves me wrong, even if she didn't even know I was doubting!!

Here are the numbers:

Swim:  3h 20m 8500 yds (including 2 open water swims, YAY for summer!)
Bike:  6h 17m 51s 96.07 mi
Run:  4h 14m 47s 24.35 mi

Total:  13h 52m 38s

I'm working on another coaching post for this week, hopefully I'll have it up by tomorrow or Tuesday!  If anyone has anything they would like for me to touch on, please leave a comment or shoot me an email.

Have a great week and happy training!!
