So I hadn't planned an easier week, but that's how it ended up, so I will just have to live with it!
Things started well on Monday with a 10.7km run at 4:48/km. Average HR was 138 which is great, my aerobic base seems to be good. On Tuesday I cycled to the pool in Nieder Olm, swam 2.7km before cycling into town to meet friends for a few beers. It totalled 25km cycling, again pretty decent.
I had Wednesday off work so wanted to do a long ride. There was a wasps nest in my window shutters, so an exterminator had to come around, so i had to wait until that was done. I also had arranged to meet Katja at 2pm and I was tired, so I lounged around and napped instead of riding! I finally got myself out to ride in the late afternoon, though only for 91km at 32km/h on my road bike. It was actually good fun, I really attacked the hills, setting some Strava PBs.
On Thursday I ran late with Katja. It was a pretty relaxed pace. I was in work until late and the weather was hot, so we ran at about 7pm for about an hour.
On Friday I went straight from work to the pool and swam 2.7km again. On Tuesday I had been fast, with my 200m repeats being at 3:25 or so. On Friday I was slow! Repeats were more like 3:50. I guess the water temp (26 vs 20) and clothing (trisuit vs loose shorts) played a part, but I didn't feel so good on Friday either, whereas I was flying on Tuesday!
I should have cycled on Friday evening, but didn't. That left me needing a big ride on Saturday to catch up. I woke up to heavy rain… It dried up by about 11am and I was good to go by 1pm, when an almighty flash storm hit, so I decided that this week could be my easier week instead of next week. So I did nothing on Saturday except nap and generally be lazy!
Sunday was Worms Tri day. I cycled 18km to the start then did the event, see the race report.
