Mooseman is this coming Saturday so this past weekend was my last chance to get some good training volume in.
By the look of the forecast on Friday night with a chance of rain predicted most of the day, I thought I’d be riding the trainer. When I got up it was gorgeous so I was able to get a 2-hour ride in before the rain started to fall later in the day.
Sunday I was going to head up to Wellington State Park for a GSTC Mooseman race prep training. Paul and I were going to drive up together before Paul bailed and I started to wonder if I wanted to drive 3 hours round trip for a 2 1/2 hour training. Particularly with gas at close to $4/gallon and the weather being so nice. Instead, I did my own triathlon training camp.
It started with a 15 minute bike ride to the pool. I swam for about 30 minutes before getting back on the bike and riding for about 30 miles. I finished up with a four mile run which was harder than I expected. The temperature had gotten pretty warm and I haven’t gotten a lot of training in the warm weather yet.
Good thing because the forecast for the race this weekend is temps in the 80’s!
