And on the 4th week, she rested...

Another training cycle is done and not a moment too soon!  Going into the weekend I was finally starting to feel the fatigue and cranky muscles.  I did come home Saturday afternoon from the ride to find a nice surprise waiting!

Official racing and training kits for the year!
I finished off the training block with a nice long run this morning (and an easy bike spin after) on the Los Gatos Creek Trail.  I started up in Los Gatos instead of here at home, so I got to warm up going downhill and then push my pace on the return trip uphill.  Fun!

Long run days always make me happy!  Somewhere around the hour mark, headed back up into Los Gatos I had a huge grin on my face - even though my legs were tired from yesterday's ride, I was still having a great run!

Happy to be done and that I got to show off my TrainingPeaks shirt on the trail.  I KNOW a lot of those athletes out there were checking it out.  Or, they were just staring at my boobs.  But let's think positive! :)

I think I might live in my compression tights for the foreseeable future.  Nothing hurts yet but it's bound to come.  And it's time to enjoy rest week as it is also race week!  The first triathlon of the year is up next Sunday...perfect time to take a measure of how all this training is going!

Have a great week!

Hey Molly I found your blog when looking for IMAZ race reports (I'm doing IMAZ this year). Thought it was time to stop lurking in the shadows :-P.
Your new kit looks awesome and just in time for your first race. Look forward to reading your race report.
