My first marathon that is. Exciting.
Swimming took a back seat this week...big time. Only managed to get in 2 swims due to lack of motivation and I also ran out of time. Not really a big deal. My goal is still 3 swims a week with a bonus 4th if I'm really feeling frisky.
3 bike rides this week, which was awesome. The nicer weather is finally starting to hit Charlotte and that bodes very well for the next 6 months. I cannot wait for it to get hot.
Running was again just a hair over 50 miles but with a twist this week: a nice 800s workout with Hudzik on Wednesday. In short, I was VERY surprised at the times I was able to hit in this workout. Very pleasantly surprised. This also bodes well for my run fitness. I'm definitely feeling a sub 1:30 half ironman run in me this year. I've only got two chances so I better make them count...
Next week is my first marathon at the ING Atlanta Marathon. Behme and I will be - barring any issues - clocking 6:50 miles to come in a hair under 3 hours. It should be fun!
