Week 9 Training update - 7 weeks to go!

I missed a week of training update - it was week 8 of training with 8 weeks to go.  It was also back to school week for the kids and the weekend ended with Muskoka 70.3!  While I didn't taper for Muskoka, I did ease up on my training schedule - I had a good hour tempo run and a great 90k ride in the weekend leading up to it.  It was a very busy week in life and training came second.

Now on to this past week which was conveniently was a recover week in my plan.  I took Monday completely off, I lifted weights on Tuesday, I took spin on Wednesday with a treadmill run after, I had an easy 10k run on Thursday morning followed my Thursday night spin/power, took Friday off, had a fabulous 15k long run on Saturday and will cap off this week today with another spin/power class. 

I feel like I've been light on the training for the past two weeks but I'm looking forward to the next 3 weeks as the final build.
