We spent the weekend catching up at home and catching up with friends at a Salt Creek Tri Club social. It was fun to relax and unwind a bit after such a stressful week.

I also spent the weekend trying to re-acquaint myself with long workouts. I am about 95% recovered from my surgery, but these workouts were a reminder that I'm just not all the way there yet.
On the trainer. This is all I could take. Had to fight for every minute. I don't know what my deal is, but my heart rate was running SUPER high. No matter what I did I couldn't get into Zone 2, so most of this was done in high Zone 3. So frustrating.
Did this about an hour after the long run. Mentally tough to stay focused, but I got it done. Did the best I could today. It will get better.
All in all, not a bad effort for less than five weeks post-surgery. It's those races hanging over my head that continue to give me pause. But this is a new week and I look forward to giving the best I can every day. It's going to be a crazy one -- between work and home activities -- but I'm committed to fueling my body well and continuing to build back my fitness.
What's on your plan for this week?
