Alright so I woke up this morning and my knee felt fine. Unfortunately, the weather here was bordering on nasty so I had to hop on the trainer in the garage. I made it though the second half of LOTR The Two Towers. My legs felt really good. In 2 hours I ended up doing 42.33 miles. While I wasnt scheduled for a brick, when I got off the bike, my legs felt so fresh. I ran in my house grabbed my garmin and my sneakers and saw the rain had stopped. I ended up doing two miles in my hilly hood and felt great. I felt like I could've kept going, but didnt want to push my luck. I ended up doing 2 miles in 18:17 (8:39,9:37). I was so surprised how good my legs felt off the bike.
Then, this afternoon I headed out to the gym and did my 1600 yard swim. It also went well. That swim made 9 workouts this week. This is the first week I fit in everything in my schedule.I did almost 10 hours of training this week. I already know I will have to be up at 430 AM a couple of days during the week.
Next week (6/8-6/13) I head out to Frisco,TX (Suburb of Dallas) for a week of training. I have already found a bike shop that rents bikes and has a group ride on Wednesday's . I have also mapped out the nearest LA Fitness so I have a pool to swim at. Now I just need to find somewhere to run.
In local news, I found out this morning that there will be an actual Ironman 70.3 here in GA next year in September. This one is definitely on my radar. I am seriously looking at the Beach to Battleship 140.6 for next year. It is in the beginning of November in Wilmington,NC. It is run by the same group that does many of the events around here including the SC 1/2. It is only about 7 hours away, the course is apparently flat, and it is about half the cost of an actual Ironman event. Also, I dont think the registration fills up as fast as an Ironman.
So here are my totals for May. Wow I cant believe it is June already!
Swim:17,850 yards(10.14 miles)
Finally, I submitted my evotri making the team entry. If anyone is interested you can read it Here
