A Wet Week

Marni Sumbal

After this past weekend, I am finally feeling better. Training is going really well and there are no excuses in my mind. Tues, Wed and Thurs are tough, especially when the phone alarm goes off at 4:30am, but I don't mind. Thank goodness for the weekends when I can sleep in until 5:30am. I just love the weekend workouts...long stuff! This week the weather has been a little unforgiving to us athletes but if you train in the rain, you are ready for it in a race. Tues morning was a semi-easy swim workout but the run afterwards was tough. The running isn't getting any easier. I just find ways to push myself harder and harder to get the HR higher and higher. 1 min hard, 1 min easy, 2 min hard, 1 min easy, 3 min hard, 1 min easy, 4 min hard, 1 min easy, 5 min hard, 1 min easy and back down. The 4 and 5 min intervals were really hard especially when I saw my HR approach 170 and beyong...ouch! Tues afternoon was a quick 90 minute spin before I went to meet sarah (who I coach cycling) at a restaurant. Gotta love the girl time to catch up. She just got a gorgeous little puppy so Flash came along to keep the dinner exciting. Wed morning was my normal spin class and it went by super fast. We have a lot of fun in the class and my class works really hard. I am adding a long swimming workout on wed morning after I lift but as of now, I'm only swimming around a mile straight. I will gradually add more yards every wed. I look at it as an easy day to get in the water and work on my mental training. I am also working with a friend Robert who is anxious to step up his training for a full summer of sprint races. I love helping blooming triathletes! Nutrition consultations the rest of wed and wed evening I left around 5:30pm for the Gearlink ride. The clouds were building but the weather did not show any storms. well, that's florida for ya. By the time we started the ride at 6:30pm it was a downpour for about 10 minutes. Once it cleared up I was thinking it wasn't a good idea to try to draft off the fast guys of the group (still a large group even with the rain), so I rode with my good friend Michelle and we caught up as we rode a couple Landsbrook loops. I was a little scared riding home with Karel since the last time we were together on a wed he had his crash but we made it safely home just before 8pm.
This morning was a hard workout for me as the swim group had fins on and I had to swim the 6 x 300's without fins. After 1000 warm-up and the main set, we all did 8 x 50's working on breath control and 4 x 25 to finish the workout. All-out! I put on my running gear and headed out for a 9 mile run. Only had a little rain (what was left from the sprinkles during our swim workout) and the run felt good. Lifted a bit and did core and finished everything just before 8:30am.
I just registered for 70.3 World Championships from my qualification certificate from IM 70.3 Florida. This summer is going by fast and I can't tell you how excited I am for the fall. There is a lot to come this summer and I am looking forward to everyday!
Karel is doing his first race since the wreck this weekend in Deland. Good luck Karel!
GOOOO gearlink!
