Last week was one of those never-ending training weeks. A week of Long distances on the swim, bike and run. I set a personal record in both daily and weekly distances in swimming, running and biking with the biggest day last Saturday with a 5 hour (81 mile) bike ride followed by a 10-mile run.
It was one of those weeks where when Karen asked me what training I did that day I would start off saying something like,
"well, I swam 4,000 yards."
Then Karen would say, "and then?"
I would say, "I rode the Honu course plus extra, about 65 miles."
"I ran for an hour on this really hot and hilly road."
Well, you get the point. It's crunch time for Honu and last week and this week are heavy training weeks.
