Remember two weeks ago, when I was complaining that week of active recovery that I had to endure? Yeah, I should have appreciated it when I had it.
During my active recovery week, I worked out for two hours and 56 minutes.
Last week, I logged a whopping 11 hours, 58 minutes and 36 seconds. My highest volume week to date. I have been completely wiped. Honestly, it kind of freaks me out for when I hit my peak weeks in March.
And while the whole week was jam-packed with over the top workouts, yesterday definitely takes the cake. Less than 24 hours after finishing a 2400 meter swim and 30 mile bike ride, I tackled a Quad Brick.
15 miles on TigerBlood followed by a two mile run.
Repeated FOUR times.
Yeah, that's nearly a five hour workout.
|Post workout. Just look what a 5 hour workout does to your hair ...|
Wowza! What a great week! And I love your hair!
Wow that is a lot! I forget that your 70.3 is coming up so soon! You are in the height of the chaos that us tri training :/ mine won't kick in for a while yet thank goodness,
Quad brick...love that term. Shyndigz has shown some awesome cakes on FB lately, I hope you have a great one tomorrow.
That's an awesome workout!
And yes, triathlon training IS insane, but lovable all the same.
You are a machine!!! Great week! Love the do!
You are truly amazing...mom, runner, wife, and now triathlete in crazy training! I think that is the craziest workout I have ever seen and I am sure you crushed it!
You are my hero. Seriously, way to crush it!!
You are awesome!!! Happy birthday (tomorrow)!!!
This is why I could not be an triathlete. You are crazy dedicated! I really am in awe of how triathletes do it. Just on the energy side of things, I don't see how life is handled on top of all the training. this weekend I only logged like 26 miles and I was beat...before my longest run.
Keep up the inspiring work!
I love the bike. that would be a really tough but fun workout. BTW, your hair just keeps getting awesomer.
I can't even imagine. I just can't. I just ran for an hour and 45 minutes and I'm ready to die from hunger and tired legs.
holy cow! that workout sounds insane - way to get through it and you definitely deserve the sleep and treats!
Smokin' week and especially weekEND of training!!
Are all of your recovery weeks so low on volume? Just curious cuz I'm researching plans like crazy. Seems like such a massive drop, and then to rank it back up to 12.
Congrats, tri sister!
And HAPPY ALMOST BIRTHDAY!
eating an entire cake on your birthday = something I totally approve of. and should be done every year.
GREAT excuse to eat a whole birthday cake on your birthday. Happy Birthday! Be sure and do what you want also and be queen for the day.
you can keep that quadbrick to yourself thank you very much.
I know from twitter that you and I had the same feeling along with Marlene of utter uselessness on Saturday night and it was glorious.....haha!
Holy mother that's a lot of training! Amazing T! Happy birthday--have your cake and eat ALL of it too!
I am exhausted just reading about it! Way to go! Happy early Birthday and I can't wait to see your cake!

LOVE that pink! You are amazing, T. You should eat 2 cakes. Happy birthday from a fellow Aquarian :)
Holy crap, you worked out like a part-time job's worth of hours! You're insane and I like it!
