This weekend was my first long run since Disney. Well I was supposed to do 16 last weekend but a route snafu ended the run at 13.3. This weekend with a little better planning I did my complete 18 mile run. Love it. Felt so much better than the 13.3 miles last weekend. Not sure what I did differently. The course was actually harder this week than last and it was definitely colder.
I went for a 25 mile ride yesterday. Also felt great. Lots of energy. Unfortunately there was lots of wind so my time wasn't as good as I felt on the bike.
I attended a Multisport Expo this weekend and from talking to a coach about nutrition. This is going to be a major point of emphasis going into this tri season. Eating properly and then fueling properly during and after workouts.
There's no magic bullet is the message I received loud and clear. What's good or what works for some may not work as good for me. I will be doing lots of trials in the next couple of months.
