Today’s Brick is Brought to you by… Yams.
Workout: Bike 15 miles / 76:36 minutes Run 3 miles / 26:52 minutes
I said I was done with triathlons for the year.
I said I was going to concentrate on long distance running and half marathon prep.
And then two things happened. One, I talked to a friend from college who completed Rocketchix too. She had signed up for another triathlon. Two, the triathlon she signed up for happened to be the one featured in this blog.
I hope you clicked on the last link so you could see just how glorious that old Yam City Triathlon’s t-shirt is.
And just like that I was signed up for the 2012 Yam City Triathlon.
I am swayed by swag.
Today’s workout was strong. I took a Gu about halfway through the bike and it made a difference. We hit some serious headwind on Lakeshore Drive but that was ok. Otherwise we stayed pretty strong throughout the ride.
My plan is to complete a bike/run every Sunday. The swim for this race is really short so I’m going to mainly focus on strengthening my bike speed and maintain my running speed. Coming off the bike onto the run at Rocketchix, I felt very strong, due to the frequency of these brick workouts so I want to kick them up a notch to prep for Yam City. My new job at my new school starts tomorrow, which just means that working out is going to have to become a top priority to make it happen.
Have you ever gotten swayed into doing something by the free stuff?
Did anyone watch the women’s marathon this morning? I was cheering Shalane Flanagan and Kara Goucher on! It was really cool to see Goucher help Flanagan up after the finish and walk with her.
