(rest day)

Was planning for a long easy ride but the weather was just horrible. Hard, persistent rain, and I was not going to get on the trainer.

Took a recovery day to get some other things done. Lot's of bike maintenance, massage, nap.

Swimming (Masters) 1:00:00 [4] 2.5 km (24:00 / km)

Hard workout of:
400m wu
4x25 3person per lane swim wu
4x(200m on 3:20, 3x100m on 1:50)
note: last set of 100m were actually 50m on 40sec
200m pull cd

Not a blazing pace but each set was decndibg times for swim and after yesterday's swim workout this felt tough for sure.

Mountain Biking (Sugarbush Course) 2:30:00 [2] 30.0 km (5:00 / km)

First recon ride of the Xterra Northeast Cup MTB course. Wow... Epic course. So much variaty of terrain and styles of MTB course mixed into one. A full set of skills will be required to race this course well. AND a MOTHERLOAD of climbing. With wet conditions it's very frustrating in sections, but all-in-all a great course.

A comfortably hard workout. Really liked how it flowed. Basically felt like I was swimming somewhat hard for an hour straight. Also really focused on high elbows, pulling with forearms the whole time.

Trail Running 40:00 [2]

Slow easy trail run at Burnt Mt. Wet. Blah.

Mountain Biking (Oak Hill) 1:20:00 [3] 21.0 km (3:49 / km) +600m 3:20 / km
ahr:140 max:172

Two slow loops of the soupy course. Yuk. Legs a bit stingy and fatigued. No snap. Felt a bit sluggish all around.

Trail Running (Oak HIll) 20:00 [4]

Fast running straight off the bike just to work the transition. Had quick legs of the run? what's up with that? Felt strong on the hills with good control over HR. Total contrast to how the biking went.

Swimming (Masters) 1:00:00 [2] 2.2 km (27:16 / km)

wu, 4x(4x100 IM), cd

Trail Running (Hills) 40:00 [3]

20min wu, 2x3min steep hills on trails, cd.

Trying to run every other day, easing my way back into it. Short sessions 30-40min. Body really out of running shape with soreness the next day. I have no leg turnover either. It'll come in the next weeks.

(rest day)

Didn't really need a rest day today, as my legs feel ok after the race. When we got home from work it was just pissing down rain and dark outside. I had no desire to train. Drank beer and watched Band of Brothers instead.
