Pre-Cozumel Brick Time

We are now 3 weeks and 6 days away from Cozumel, which will be my 4th 140.6 and George's first!

It is serious training time right now.

My coach loves BIG bricks, and this weekend did not dissapoint.

80 on the bike and 16 on my feet. The bike went well. I experimented some with nutrition though, and this was a major fail. Back to normal next week!  This meant that I was behind on my nutrition--not great and pretty tough to deal with.

I did speed up in both my ride and my run.

I was joking with george that I was flirting with a "wall" all day long. I was considering bonking all day, and just BARELY avoided it---until I finished. And then I just fell into the car, told george I didn't want to talk and to just take me home.

1 bottle of Ultragen (thanks first endurance!!!) and 30 minutes later, I was able to talk and hear all about George's day and I was back to life. He was (and is) SOOOO fast.  His run was amazing, and I am incredibly proud of him. He is going to kill it in Cozumel!

I really want to break 12 hours in Cozumel. Weather can change anything, but I am going to train to do my very best to break that number!

Since this week went so well, coach is making next weekend even longer.....oh boy....
