Three Things Thursday ...

Training Overload - I hadn't ever noticed it before, but on the side of my Training Peaks calendar, there is a pie chart that tracks my completed duration and completed mileage. Being the numbers geek that I am, I was instantly in love.

Plus, once I ran the totals for the last 13 weeks (since the start of Half Ironman training), I felt like a total bada**. Since November 28th, I have logged 94 hours, 36 minutes and 39 seconds in the pool, on my bike and with my feet. Completely insane. It breaks down like this:



Swim: 11:22:12, 33459 yards, 1.848% of total distance, 12.01% of total time
Bike: 40:27:45, 739.80 miles, 71.92% of total distance, 42.76% of total time
Run: 42:46:42, 269.72 miles, 26.22% of total distance, 45.21% of total time

Huh? I really thought I was running less than that.

Disney Goals - Since I am training like a crazy woman, I will not taper for Sunday's Disney Princess Half. My long run this week is supposed to be 14 miles, so the timing of this race works out quite well in regards to my training plan, but after two weeks of heavy mileage, I'm not sure how my legs will hold up if I attempt to race.

So, the goals for Sunday.

1. Have fun.
2. Look fantastic.

I'm pretty sure I can accomplish that.

Monsters, Inc. - Speaking of looking fantastic, here is my race costume for Sunday. (Note: I have shifted the eyeball higher since taking this photo.) I present to you, Mike Wazowski ...


Pretty close, right?
