The good news.....Monday is a rest day. And if I finish up my work (or squeeze it in Tuesday morning) it's a workless day too. :)
Oh, the sprint tri last weekend went ok. Yeah, just ok. I did good on the swim, an improvement of almost 4 minutes over last year on the same course. I think I did better sighting, altho I still get pretty breathless at the start of these swims. I pushed a bit harder on the bike, but didn't see a whole lot of improvement, 2 minutes better than last year. In pushing harder tho, I had trouble with my nutrition plan. Didn't take in nearly enough fluids, and despite knowing the advice "nothing new on race day", I tried some new nutrition that didn't work out so well. Oh, also forgot my salt tab on the bike. *sigh* So, I went into the run dehydrated and under fueled and actually ran slower on this course than I did last year by a minute and a half. Overall almost a 6 minute improvement, but a bit disappointing none the less. I really would have liked to have done better, especially on the run.
Gotta take the positives tho....learned something about nutrition, and still a PR on that course even though I'm distance training and not training for sprint efforts. Keep the knowledge, leave the disappointment behind and move forward!
Happy long weekend! Enjoy!
