Monday 5.30.2006 - Good Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is over and I escaped without too much damage. As far as training goes, it was all about running and swimming.

Sunday:
Long run - 90min - 12 miles

Monday:
1 mile Ocean Swim - La Jolla cove

Right now I feel totally recoverd from all my workouts. In the upcoming weeks I have some very challenging workouts lined up, but at the same time more easy days (just swimming) than I would normally schedule myself. The best part about having a coach is that I just get to sit back, do the work, and let someone else worry about the details. Of course I will not follow along blindly. It's defintely important to let the coach now how you are recovering and how you are feeling.

I have also been surfing a lot. I have surfed the last 4 days in a row, which wouldn't have been a big deal before I started training for triathlon. I am planning on getting in the water a lot more. Nothing is more relaxing than getting the water for a couple of hours with my friends and getting some waves.

I also made it through the weekend without comsuming too much junk food and beer. It was good to get to have a relaxing weekend bbq'ing with friends and relaxing (no racing).

Gonna be hard with no junk food as A races approaches. I sure love that beer and/or ice cream in these hot days.
