A few photos from our weekend training sessions, both included a swim and one included a bike and the other a run. This week was a hard one and included a hard swim, 2 bike rides, and 2 runs. Today's run was longer than our normal run for my level by 10 minutes and included instructions to maintain a 90 step / minute pace. That requires very short steps from me and really worked out the glutes - probably a good thing. The 90 / minute pace is something important because that is something you read about for biking cadence as well. More on that later.
Here are the photos.
On my bike, 2 weeks ago. Nice 65 degree day.
Swimming. Cold 50 degree day and thank goodness the water was heated! We ran after this for my first brick run (that's 2 events in one day for training, or I think that's the word). It felt good, but definitely harder than a normal run.
Swimming last week during the swimming stroke analysis. I know this is me because I'm not on top of the water, my legs are low, and yet somehow I I still look good...sort of.
