IM CDA week 21- 6 more weeks!

Just need to hold on for 6 more weeks- mentally & physically!

I expected to have a recovery week this week but I saw that coach revised my week so I emailed to make sure and he said, "Correct, it's go time for CDA!" This was a tough training week right after Wildflower but had to suck it up and push through!

Monday- Rest day.

Tuesday- CT class and was supposed to do a 45 minute run but I had a pretty bad tension headache so I told coach that I "visualized" my run instead. Hopefully he thought it was funny! I did :-). 

Wednesday- Hill repeats but felt so crappy that my 1hr20min run turned out to be a run/walk. Swim was 3,000 yards.

Thursday- CT class- tough intervals but I knocked them out of the park!

Friday- Another run and a 4,000 yard swim.

Saturday- Road the Vineman course with the team. Had to do two zone 3 pick ups that were 45 minutes long but I was only able to do one- body was not having it!

Sunday- 4.5k yard swim followed by a 1hr45min run- OUCH!! 

How's that for a training week after Wildflower?! Like I said, need mind and body to hold on for 6 more weeks!! Next week- 22 hours of training is on tap! Wish me luck!

Some more photos from Wildflower last weekend- swim swim swim!
Chaotic beginning of bike course. Sprint course goes left, Long Course goes right!
Mile 3.5-4ish of the run??
Finish line!! Not sure how happy guy was sharing the finish line with me..the women started after the men..
