While everyone else is in reflection mode on the year, I am very focused on my current double ironman goal, so I really can only think about one week at a time. In fact, one day at a time is probably better for me. Every time I look at my schedule, I start to freak out a little bit. So, lets reflect on the past 7 days....
A glimpse into the life of Kacie:
2 Hour Run: Went with my mom, who is an awesome training buddy. Headed home from my family's feeling very sick, so I just laid around feeling sick and gross.
2 Hour Swim: Kickin it in the pool. I do 2-1 hour sets. They very between 3000 and 3300 yds per 1 hour set.
3 Hour Ride: It was raining, and I don't like that, so I did it on my trainer. Bridesmaids was pretty funny!
2 Hour Run: Did this one on some trails to mix it up.
Weight session: Gotta work on my guns. Not really, I only do leg stuff right now.
2 Hour Swim: More time in the agua.
3 Hour Ride: Rode with my homeslice George. I did NOT want to go on this ride. I might have moped for the whole first hour. Then I pulled myself together and had a good time with him!
2 Hour Swim: More fish time.
Meeting with my crew chief Anne to start talking logistics. It is going to be awesome!
5.5 Hour Bike: Rode on the Silver Comet Trail. Got a flat. Daydreamed. The usual.
2.5 Hour Run: Out and back. Got tired in the last 30 minutes
3 Hour Run: Skipped through some trails and ran into Andree, who lifted my spirits SO much!
See, when I look at it from here, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal. No single workout was really all that tough. Mostly, I am just REALLY worried about going back to work and maintaining this kind of training. I am certainly not bragging. Most of it was all really slow.
So, tonight, I skipped yoga (I will go to an extra one, I already have it planned!) and cooked a great deal of food to help me get through the week in a healthy and well fueled kind of way. To be honest, I have eaten pretty much anything I want for the past two weeks, but to keep this up with more work and less sleep, I can't cut any corners.
