Shortly after posting this post, I will be getting in the car with my mamma and driving to San Antonio! We’re going to stop and do a little outlet shopping on the way, and I will hit up the expo this evening. Tomorrow? RACE DAY! I can’t wait to come back and tell you all about it!
This week’s workouts were pretty tame to taper down for the weekend:
Tuesday: Swim 500 yards,
Run 30 minutesRun 3 miles
Bike 15 milesBike 12 miles
Swim 200 yards, Run 15 minutesRest
Skipping the short swim and jog won’t kill me – we’re leaving soon and I’m pregnant and tired! I’ll get in a good long walk at the outlet mall this afternoon! 🙂
Saturday: SPA GIRL TRIATHLON
400 METER SWIM: Your race starts with a gorgeous dip in the lazy river as you navigate the scenic swim loop sans the jets.
10 MILE BIKE: You will carefully exit the swim and head over to Transition 1 to hop on your bike for a fun 2-loop 10 mile ride on the ultra smooth TPC Parkway with only one hill right before transition 2 for the run.
2 MILE RUN: Next up, end your race with a tranquil run through the lush grounds of the resort to a fabulous finish on their grand lawn, surrounded by beautiful views, lush landscape and peaceful waterfalls.
Sunday: Glorious, glorious rest.
I’m honestly a little bummed out it’s this weekend because after this – I have nothing to train for. I’ll probably rest a little more than usual next week before putting together a new training plan… it’s just so odd not having a goal race in mind! I’m not sure what I’ll do!! I was going to train for a 10K next until I found out I would be out of town the actual weekend of the race… but maybe I’ll do it anyways. I discovered during tri training that I really miss my longer Saturday runs.
I’ve also found another sprint triathlon I am thinking of singing up for – but only if my Dad will relay it with me. Nobody wants me on a bike now that the belly is starting to stick out…
I am a ball of nerves but I am SO ready for this! Bring it on! This time tomorrow I will be a triathlete!!!!!!!
