After the race, we spent some time hanging out at the zoo...which is always fun. It's one of Kate's favorite places! Here's some pictures from our day:
After the zoo, I managed to sneak in a brick workout, which went really well. I'm down to 6 days until my first even half-ironman. Am I ready? I hope so, because there's nothing that I can do at this point to increase my endurance...let's just hope all the training was enough!
1h30m on the bike.
10 minute warm-up in heart rate zones 1 & 2
70 minutes of hard riding in zone 3 (avg HR = 140)
10 minute cool-down
Followed the workout with 45 minutes of weights (back, shoulders, biceps, abs)
