slept in this morning and then took the family to wurstfest in new braunfels. i passed on the beer but not the food. amber and i shared a funnel cake, fried pickles, and braut w/ saurkraut which means i ate 2/3s of everything. my stomach wasnt use t the fried stuff so its been aching ever since. caught a short nap when we got home and then went swimming. wanted to bail on the swim after the warmup but glad i stuck it out. looked at my volume for my first week of taper and my swimming and biking actually increased from the prior week. doesnt sound like a taper to me. the next 2 weeks will be alot less so i can rest.

a little cooler and not as windy as wed. also felt more hydrated and energized this round. right glute tender but not too bad (appears i have an overuse injury to the periformis - sp?)

Run
  • 1h 11m 25s
  • 10.50 miles
  • 06m 48s /Mi

t-run off the bike. ran the first 8miles a race pace based on HR (135-140) and avg 6:40pace. cruised home for last 2.5 a little easier. avg HR listed is for first 8miles.
***
legs really felt great today, however lt hammy tighten up a bit near mile 7 but after a few tow touches it was all good.

Sport #1
  • Massage
  • 20m
Sport #2

race brick #2 in the books and for me it was a strong one - its beer time 2night! *** i think my run plan for AZ will be to go out and try to hit the first loop at a 6:45ish pace and then hold on from there. i have looked at alot of the top finishers in AZ the past few years and all the runners tend to hit a fast first lap and then slowly fade. i think a strong first lap will give me the mental boost i need to push thru some pain in the latter 2 laps.

finally got a massage today. most of the time was spent flattening out my calves and hammys and ass. i could barely walk after the massage but i think it will be a good thing. and it took all my strength not to cry a few times. will probably need 1 more next week to really work my quads and fu on my calves/hammys/back again. dont be like me and let your body go too long w/o a massage.
