Tuesday 5.9.2005 - it's getting close

the race is getting close. I have about a week and a half left until the Xterra Western Championships in Temcula. I am really looking forward to this race and also a chance to see all the pros take on the same course.

I have defnitely been putting in the work and believe I will be ready to have the best race I can. Since the Xterra races and about the length of an Olympic distance race (around 2.5 hours for temecula) I do not really have to have a long taper. I am kind of dialing things back just a bit this week and next will week will be pretty mellow with just some swimming, short race pace workouts, and then a pre-ride/jog of the course.

training so far this week:
monday:
AM - Masters - 3000m
Lunch - 18 min easy spin/stretching/core

Tuesday:
AM - swim work pool - endurance workout - averaging 1:24 on 100 repeats
Pm - Brick - 90 min tb/24 min run

I am tired..... and want to go to sleep but the Padres are tied with the Brewers in bottom of the 8th and they have won 9 in a row... this could be 10.
