Tri tri again

I am one and a half weeks away from the Stoaked Standard Triathlon and I have been busting my butt with training. Some days I feel like I am not giving it my all, like on my rest days, and then there are days like today where I know I am giving it my all.  I spent 30 minutes on the recumbent bike and was cooking on a hill program, with the RPM never dropping below 100 and even hitting 150 at times. It was hot and sweaty and I immediately hopped on the treadmill for another 5 minutes. Five minutes isn' that long, but it was the first time I had a chance to go from a bike ride to a run that quickly. It was a challenge, but doable.
Tonight was the weekly fun run at the Three Stallion Inn and I tackled two miles, running 1.5 miles without stopping and then switching to a walk/run to finish the last half mile.  This was done in only 25m34s which made me extremely happy.
I am feeling better and better about my goal of finishing the triathlon in one piece!

Don't think you're not giving it your all on rest days. Rest days are the MOST important days of training!

You will do great and I can't wait to hear all about it! :)

I think is feeling the pinch if time slipping away that makes the rest days feel like I am not working hard enough. But they do make me feel stronger and faster when I workout the day after.
