Goodbye June…Hello July

Week 17 was a bit of a crazy one. Good news is that I only have 2 months till Ironman Lake Placid. These next two months of training are going to be challenging both mentally and physically.  To be honest, I am actually pretty excited to challenge myself and tackle my longest distances on the bike.  As you know the bike is my least favorite and the sport I struggle with the most, but I refuse to let it affect my training. I’m learning and that’s only going to make me stronger.

Here’s the quick rundown of week 17 thus far.

Monday: 2100m Swim + Teach Barre

WU: 100 swim, 50 kick, 150 pull
MS: 1000 swim, rpe 2
50 kick
500 swim, rpe 2
50 kick
200 pull ez

Tuesday: 5 Mile Run (Fueled by Gundalow)

1498560503254

Wednesday: Hotel Workout + 19 Mile Bike

Thursday: 3.80 Miles Run + 2000 Meter Swim + Teach TRX

Yay for another run day!!!! I met up with Britta for some speedy miles before I had to hit the pool. Averaged around 7:54 which felt pretty good and always love catching up with friends during runs.

My new shoes also arrived and I’m pretty pumped to get these on the pavement this weekend in Florida.

I did Bootcamp at IronDNA Fitness while Jonathan did CrossFit.

The rest of the night was spent prepping for Saturday’s brick workout. I know what you’re thinking…a pretty exciting Friday night right?! Well..when you’re Ironman training this is the life and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

The weekend is not over so more to come with week 17 totals BUT here is how June turned out…

Swim: 20,837 Yards
Bike: 181.30 Miles
Run: 56.3 Miles

Peace out June!
