High Volume Week = Success

This was a BIG week. And by BIG I mean high volume (lots of miles) since I am only ONE MONTH out from Ironman. It was a week filled with hitting some personal bests and mental toughness. Big weeks ahead, but I’m ready.

Monday: 2000 Meter Swim + Teach Barre

Great way to start off the week…2 new swim records.

Friday:ย Hot Yoga + PT

I went to see Mary at True Sports in Fells for a little maintenance on the glutes, IT bands and TFL. We did some graston and dry needling to get these legs feeling fresh. If you read my last post (check it out here) you know this is one key area over these next few weeks so I’m making sure I stay healthy.
