run hills 48:01  9.0 km (5:20 / km)
Since the race is in 10 days, today starts the tapering. My coach, IronKing, suggested today be a brick "just for fun". I wasn't sure exactly what that meant and he explained.
I ran the 9 km route I love thru the woods and over the hills as fast as I wanted. It is a sunny, perfectly still, BEAUTIFUL day so it was a pleasure.
At noon I'll swim 2 kms "recreationally". Again I wasn't sure what that meant since in the 9yrs I've trained with IronKing I've always TRAINED.
Check out the log to see how it goes.
swim tempo 32:00  1.0 km (32:00 / km)
Just completing distance of 1 kms with a variety of strokes for fun. What a concept!!! It was a blast just doing 200 of crawl, 200 backstroke, 200 breast stroke etc. It didn't feel like work at all.
bike 1:16:32  30.46 km (2:31 / km)
Just an easy spin with the Beavers along the rolling 221. It was windy as usual. I kept just spinning and coasting to force myself not to zoom ahead. Tried to coach Valley Girl and teach her to draft. This pace is just fun.
