Nice! Enjoy the visit.

Last week's plan:
- Ride 5x - DONE and 2 QOMs :-)
- Run 3x - DONE and even the doggy joined me, she's like a puppy! nah we took it really easy together
- Weights 3x - will go back to the 5x5 stronglifts but at lower weight and slower increases - FAIL did 1 session then was knackered after dryland...
- Dryland 1x - DONE and holy crap it beat me up - but it was worth it to outrun a bunch of 18 and 17yos. :-)

This week - I have 4 days onsite consulting, my last 4 days of my Master Black Belt, thank god. So close. But being at other sites means routines are thrown out the window. So....
- Run 3x
- Dryland 1x
- Ride 1x

Last week was good. Spent the weekend with family. So weekend training was slightly down, just in that bike miles were a wee tad less.
This week is the final big training week before taper time and I am feeling good. We shall see.
My goal is to get through the week!

Ran x 4, biked x 4, swam x 2. I'm really enjoying getting out on the bike these days and no longer a nervous wreck about it; huge positive change from last year.

First 70.3 is on Sunday so I'm on a taper this week; feeling pretty tired so just going to take the week as it comes. Big goal for me is to swim the swim so we'll see how that goes - hoping to make the most of the practice session at the swim venue.

@tigerchik - I must have missed it, what are you training/tapering for?

I have a 70.3 coming up with the plan to race it until I melt down / blow up / disintegrate / or hit the finish line, whatever comes first. I've done enough half IMs where just getting through it is too "safe", so I'm headed out to "live on the edge".

Good week, first week off after working 3 weeks (1 session) of summer school.
This week should be interesting. Got a bike ride in yesterday and will run tonight, swim on thursday, along with a couple more runs.
Saturday is Opening Ceremonies for Special Olympics World Games, I'm volunteering at UCLA that morning, then going to Opening Ceremonies at the LA Coliseum that evening. Sunday- I am participating in the Triathlon for World Games as part of the Unified Sports Experience, Gee is volunteering for the race.
I have 4 more volunteer shifts at UCLA the following week...busy & trying to take public transit rather than put 80 miles a day on my car.

Yes, totally meant determination and not tigerchik. D'oh.

Your approach to the race sounds very liberating. Hope it goes well and I definitely want to hear the details once you're done. In the mean time, enjoy the training and the taper!

I planned to use public transport to S.O., till I discovered it takes 2 hours and 2 transfers each way, plus I'd have to drive to the station. I could probably get there faster on bike!

It's suppose to be 1.5 hours & 2 transfers for me, plus drive to station, will try on day 1 and see how it works (meeting w/ family for opening ceremonies and they are driving).
