The biggest weeks and biggest single sessions are over and done with! My coach has received several nasty text messages, phone calls, and emails the past two weeks. My motto is "Go as hard and long as you can till you brake, then recover". I can officially say that my body is broken and it is time to start reducing the volume and sharpening up the body.
I don't recall ever feeling this fatigued! I can't stand up straight, I'm always slouching. I'm looking forward to feeling stronger over the coming weeks.
So my longest run day.....27 miles. Longest run in my life and it was wasn't all that fun. 3hr 15 min. I was in an ice bath minutes after this run drinking my recovery solution. I have a habit of running my long runs too fast, which results in me not recovering fast enough for torture Tuesday. I still complete Tuesday, but it pushes me that one notch higher to complete.
Longest bike/run combo: 7.0hr with 6mile mile run.
This was a tough set today. Race pace watts for the following sets:
3x60minutes, 4x15min, 5x10min. Short rest and my legs were hurting and cramping. I jumped on the run just to log the miles. No set pace.
I will enjoy a very easy day tomorrow to recover and get ready for shorter and sharper workouts.
