Goals met! 5 swims (3275 yds), 2 bikes (42.3 mi), 6 runs (41.6 mi). Note bike miles > run miles!
I did a nice job alternating easy running with fast running.
Goals this week: give blood (tried twice last week and my iron was a hair too low both days, so I got a multivitamin and have stopped drinking tea), swim 5x, ride 2x, day off from running.
I fly home Friday evening :-)
hope everyone is doing well and has a good week.

SLO - where are you, how did Wildflower go?
My week went pretty well except for my Sunday ride. I had spent Friday - Sunday in a Critical Incident Stress Management course and three days of role-playing and dealing with "trauma" left my brain fried. I stopped the ride, had a nice dinner with some wine and went to bed at 8.30pm. I feel much perkier this morning :-)
M: swim (done) + run
T: trainer ride
W: swim + run
Th: trainer ride
F: swim + run
My goals for last week came from my new coach:
Quote:3 swims (only 1 ocean), 3 or 4 bikes (2 trainer), 4 runs (but low mileage and mostly easy) strength, PT, and yoga. I'm excited to start something new.
Everything went fine and I completed all the workouts for 20 miles run, 70 biked, and 8500Y swum. Overall, it was a little more volume than I'm used to but more of it was low intensity. The exception was the bike, my trainer rides were shorter but tougher as I settle into training with power. My favorite workout of the week was biking part of the St. George 70.3 course -- it was absolutely beautiful climbing in Snow Canyon and I hiked after too. I'd love to race St. George 70.3 in the future, I had fun weekend cheering and sherpaing for friends who raced. It got me excited for my 70.3 next month too.
I think the bones of my goals will be the same every week for a while: 3 swims (only 1 ocean), 3 or 4 bikes, 3 or 4 runs, strength, PT, and yoga. my new coach is remote so I'm interested to get his feedback on how the week went and how we'll progress going forward. So far, so good.
How was Wildflower, SLO? It looked HOT.
