Did you survive the first 3 days of the week? I hope so. The end is in sight - thank goodness. Have had a

And today, I felt like the universe absolutely hated me!
via www.someecards.com - this was me today at every turn.
Ever have ups and downs like that so drastic that you wonder if there is some gravitational pull that is disturbing life as you know it? Interesting phenomenon - maybe it's true.
But the good thing is today is over and I'm bound and determined that the rest of the week will be better. It will be in the 70s here (global warming, much??), my Spartans are playing on Friday night and Julia and I are heading to Columbus for the weekend to see the games!
Not sure where I got this but I love it!
So back to the topic at hand: this week in my Ironman training.
I only had 2 days with double workouts but Coach Roman has started to increase my mileage/time for each workout. I'm up to 90 minutes on the bike, 7 1/2 miles with a tempo run and 1800 meters swimming.
The biggest thing with my training this week was getting my bike properly fitted on Monday! I went with my dad to see his coach who helped adjust my pedals, gave me a new seat, adjusted my handlebars, had me get a proper pair of bike shorts (hello padding!) and I feel like a new person. Amazing what a few small tweaks make.
Ok I wasn't quite this bad but... (via Google)
- Swam 5,400 meters
- Ran 19 1/2 miles (including 7 1/2 mile tempo)
- Biked about 45 miles (2 1/2 hours)
- Total training time: about 6 1/2 hours, give or take
Onto Week 7!
