Cheeky

Today is the final day of the month-long triathlon. Thank the friggin’ lord! I completed a pseudo sprint nolhtairt (that’s triathlon backwards, geniuses) this morning as my final workout in this pain-fest of a month. You’re on the edge of your seats for my stats, aren’t you?

*crickets*

Well, lie to me anyway. I wanna feel special.

Okay, here’s the recap. I needed to complete:

2.4 miles of swimming
112 miles of cycling
26 miles of running

I completed:

2.5 miles of swimming
115 miles of cycling
42.2 miles of running

Three cheers for doing the bare minimum for cross training! Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

So basically in the last three days I cycled 45 miles. My ass is killing me! No more gym bike for at least a month if ever again. Aeolus is much more accommodating even if the English weather is not.

I’ve got more to say and some pictures to show you all, but I don’t have time today. Hopefully I’ll get to it tomorrow, maybe Monday. It depends on how much of this chapter I get completed by tonight. Which basically means, don’t hold your breath.

Later gators.

Bare minimum of cross training? I see 3.1 extra miles in there. That's a 5k man!

Congrats! I think swimming 2.5 miles is the best accomplishment!

The bare minimum is plenty. Cheers to setting the bar low for maximum success. Have a good weekend.
