HHH Photos

A little delayed, but nevertheless I finally have the official photos from Horribly Hilly Hundreds. They charge a small fortune for these things so there is always a brief period where I consider just screen grabbing them and living with "proof" splashed across my face, or actually fueling the economy and buying them. They got two shots of me and it was a very memorable day so I decided to buy them.

At the finish:

With my friend Robert, who made those final hills not so hellish:

After a lovely rest day on Monday I got back to training today, but unfortunately had to cut both workouts short due to life. I was supposed to swim 300 x 4-5 depending on time and since I was short on time, I decided to do 2,100 continuous instead. A long continuous swim is always a good thing so I'm glad I did it. My pace was super easy and I literally could have continued all day.

I had bike intervals on tap for the evening but didn't get home until almost 8:30 and was starving so it did not go well. I was planning 10' x 6 with a 10-minute warm up and 5-minute cooldown. I made it through the warm up, 10' x 4 and the cool down before I was literally on the verge of passing out. I ended up having dinner at 10 p.m. and feeling much better afterward. I could have continued, but sometimes I wonder what the value is in pushing when you are most certainly not at full capacity.

Sleep has been lacking this week but I'm doing my best. I have another race this weekend which means I'm super busy at work! Such is life.

Distance - 2,100 yards
Time - 42:12

Biking (trainer intervals)

    Hope training is going well.
