The challenge of an 18 hour training week.
Today started with a t-pace 1-2-3-4-4-3-2-1 pyramid swim. I kept the pace around 1:28-1:30 pace, right on target for longer distances. Workout was tough but I kept images of rivals and wise words from training partners in my mind as I pushed through it. I'm feeling comfortable in the water again. I have my feel for the water back.
Ran this afternoon, and intended to go out easy and back around tempo pace. Legs were shot from the brick yesterday though so I went out easy and came back maybe at zone 2 pace, but far from tempo. I still picked up the pace as planned, so not all was lost. Ran about an hour, which is a little short for the workout, but tonight I'll recover well so I can ATTACK the cruise intervals on the bike on my new trainer.
