The Training Resumes ... all systems go

So I forced myself to take off on Monday. I have not been sore. I was fatigued on Sunday after the race ... but a good night's rest was enough to cure that.

Tuesdays are fantastic ... and this Tuesday was no exception. I ran to the gym, swam 500 meters and ran back to work on my lunch hour. So two 5Ks and a swim in an hour without any struggle right after a 70.3. I definitely trained right. Then Tuesday afternoon we headed to the gym for a little weight lifting, an hour of spin and an hour of Yoga. What a great day!

We had to cancel swim lessons tonight because of lightining. So the coach and I sat and discussed future plans for racing in 2012. Along with St. George 2012, I will be doing at least 12 other races including an additional Ironman ... Ironman Arizona.

I am still on cloud nine following my SOMA 70.3 experience. In the end it was less about how quickly I could finish and more about the whole event. The course, the people and the variables.

We are racing this weekend. I want to do well in the Mesa Halloween Sprint to keep my streaks of good performances alive from my previous two weekends of racing.
