45 Minute Run to Make Up

Posted by madtrippin on June 27, 2008

My training plan had me doing a 45 minute run last night.  I didn’t do it.  On Wednesday I did a 30 minute swim at 5:30 in the morning and then did a 45 minute bike ride + a short mile run after (bricking).  I was whipped yesterday, so I skipped the workout.  Now I’ll have to do the run today after work, but before I pick up the kids.  No big deal.

On sunday I’ll be doing my first open water swim, followed by a 60 minute ride.  Should be a good time.

Yesterday I got my tri shorts from Aevero in the mail.  I got a great deal… $19.50 + $3.00 for shipping.  It only took about 3 days to get them.  I also got a free pair of gel-padded cycling gloves with my order.  I’m not so sure of the comfort/quality of the gloves, but the shorts seem top notch.  I’ll test them out Sunday during my workout and report back.

I also got all the preliminary info for the race.  That will give me the opportunity to ride/run the course a few times before the big day.  I’m amped.
