Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Yoshi: Sorry to hear about the lingering injury. Maybe you switchover to a focus of cycling and swimming, assuming the injury doesn't impact either of those. When I was doing triathlon hardcore, that's exactly what I would do when faced with an injury like that. I'd use it as an opportunity to, say, get monster strong on the bike.
Might have an opportunity to get into Big Sur this year through their B2B (Boston 2 Big Sur) program. Wife doesn't want to fly. Want to do it but feeling bad about taking such a fun trip without her. Gotta decide soon. Two weeks after Boston. Fun. Big Sur is on my list of must-do-one-day races.
Last speed session before Boston, and last perhaps until fall, as the mountains and trails are calling!
12 mile speed session early this morning in 1:27:32:
o WU - ~2.5 mile run to park (23:42)
o 2 x 3 miles @ ~6:20 pace w/.5 mile jog
1 - 6:19, 6:20
2 - 6:17, 6:21
3 - 6:21, 6:25
o CD - ~2.5 miles home (16:53)
*Pace aggressive but not all out. Call it HM pace.
**Bottom of foot hurting since Sunday, and although it didn't get worse, it doesn't feel good.
***Strong pace on the return leg home; this shows me my fitness is good.
Great day, friends!
