restorative yoga...sage roundtree. Man, I should have done this every week for the last 8 weeks!!! Lots more to come in taper!!!

took today off of tri training. Slept in!!! Took the edge for new tires and rode blackie home...COLD. Legs are tired riding 2 miles on my cruiser bike! Walked the dogs with Dave and did restorative yoga in the evening. Dave booked a hotel in Kingston to break up the drive to Mont Tremblant. Printed out a few things for my IM folder. Got some pre-taper madness cleaning done in the house, which is kind of a dump. :) Ate like a champ today, for the first time in a while. Soooo so so needed this day, and glad I took it!

    My baby is 22 today. Well, not my baby. My eldest. She's still my baby though. :)

    Long slog of a ride today. Very mentally and physically tired. Not a great ride by any means, but done. I'll take done.

    A biker got hit today in the park. In a park with signs to share the road with bikes...because there are ALWAYS bikers in the road in this park. I swear. No where is safe to ride a damn bike anymore. GRRRR.

    Post ride, got cleaned up and took Kaity to the mall to shop (which is usually a frustration for us both as she never wants me to BUY her anything...) and success. She got a pair of converse sneakers, two sweaters and a shirt at JCrew. That was a small miracle! Then we had birthday dinner at Granite City with the family, Sherry and her bestie Nicole. Bad food choices, beer and a happy girl. Now I need sleep!

    Out n back on Spring Hill and a bit on the path. HR was lower avg than the long run on Thursday and tired legs.

    Sooo tired. Not sleeping well. Was so tired on way home. Only a few more long rides, then taper!!!

    Friday - July 25

    Swim

    Met Scribby and got him a pass to swim at LTF. Had to cut it short due to grabbing the girl in AA for a doc appt.

    Legs are tired. Had to get up early and had crap sleep AGAIN.

    VERY STRESSFUL afternoon with the girl. Exhausted...

    Thursday - July 24

    Run #1
    • 2h 53m 35s
    • 18.01 miles
    • 09m 38s /Mi

    18 or 3 hours...which ever comes first. Ran by hr today as Coach P wanted.

    Don't think this pace is doable on race day...ran at slightly higher hr than I can after biking. Took less walk breaks in the beginning and more at the end. Think I need more from the onset. Tried gu's on 4/8, but really need to gu every 3 miles. Liked the shoes.

    Run #2
    • 13m 52s
    • 0.88 miles
    • 15m 46s /Mi

    walked, jogged, walked to cool down and get to car

    great weather for the long run. Dropped a bottle in the nature center and ran by HR. Can't go that fast in IM though. Happy with run overall. Messed up on gu's. So so so sick of perform!!!
