week8 - CDA training in 2008

this was a rough week for numerous reasons. i couldn't seem to get my diet/nutrition under control. i'm hungry all the time so i find myself eating all the time. as a result i was constantly feeling bloated & is if my belly was hanging low during workouts - not a good feeling. i also didn't get outside & ride once this week. i was jazzed about riding saturday morning but the weather went south & i found myself indoors with 20+ other t3ers on trainers for 3 hours. i did a late long run on sunday & again the weather conditions weren't favorable - strong winds & dark clouds along with a lack of food/water prior to the run made those 15-miles absolute hell. i wanted to cash in a number of times but knowing some days are going to be good & some not so good i pushed on through. the one highlight of the week is that my mileage in the water was at its highest so far - 5.25 miles! i'm really having to work my butt off to stay in the t-two lane. i still find myself muscling it more than i need to be & i'm trying to slow it down & really focus on my form.
