Triathlon Training: Week 3

How do you spell slacker? S-A-R-A-H. I had two awesome workouts Monday and Tuesday, but I was sore and exhausted from said workouts on Wednesday, and my post-work cycling class was put on the back burner Thursday because I spend the last half hour at work holed up in the shower in the women’s restroom due to insane weather. And I was plain lazy Friday and Saturday. Here’s what I did this week:

Sunday, June 22, 2008

  • Workout type. Running
  • Route. Forest Park 3-mile loop
  • Feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Time. 30 minutes
  • Distance. 3 miles
  • Pace per mile. 10:00
  • Additional notes. About five minutes into my run, an electrical storm started. And then it started raining at the one-mile mark. It rained for about a mile. It’s crazy, but I think the rain makes me faster because it cools me off. I also hate walking in the rain, so I’m compelled to keep running. Just wish I had my visor to keep some of the water off my face.
