Weekly Update – May 28, 2011

This was my last week of hard training before my taper… and now I’m sick. 🙁 I seem to have picked up a bug, possibly strep. Saw the doctor and got a prescription to hold me over until the test results confirm… but it’s almost for sure. A case of strep is forcing me to adjust my desired time for the Air Force Half today, I was aiming for ~2:03, now I’ll be happy with any time under 2:10.

The two week challenge ended successfully on Thursday, and what did I learn? I don’t miss the junk if I’m not eating it, but if you give me Belgian chocolates for my birthday, I’ll eat too many….

I was happy with my long run on the 26th – my legs were cramping at the end, but I finished it, and my average time wasn’t too bad. My swim was awesome – some work issues were resolved early in the week, and I spent most of my swim in the zone, working on ideas in my head.

This morning is the Air Force Half, my (now) first race of the season – look for a race report soon!
