Workout Notes 2008 Week 17
Monday and Tuesday I was dragging after all the bike work on Saturday and Sunday. That said, both were good sessions. Given that I had been pushing the limit, and was signed up for the TriHistoric McKinney Triathlon on Sunday, I decided to cut back the usual hour run on Wednesday to 43 min. Thursday I had what I thought was a pretty easy 16x30 set of intervals. I now see that I pushed my HR up to 191 or about 95% of max - that was more work than I wanted to do! Friday was no different - I was hustling to make a lunch with some colleagues and I hammered through my swim pretty hard. I was dripping sweat an hour after my swim. And if that was not bad enough, Saturday I only wanted to do some easy miles on the bike, like 90 minutes. But, noooo, Terry and Victoria conspired to have me out there for almost 3 hours! Sheesh!

Sunday morning it was wet and cool, but not too cold. A bit windy, but all in all perfect for the Tri-Historic McKinney Triathlon!
