last day of my taper week :-(

I am sad because today my taper week ends :-(  I'm not really sad but I have really struggled with almost every workout this week; well, I guess that is only about half true but still, it has been a tough week :-).  I cannot believe that the intensity will ramp up again and that I still have 23 weeks of training ahead of me, oy!  I know that this is just a blip on the radar and after a day off tomorrow (and a massage!) I will get my groove back.

I woke up this morning with a crazy pain in my right elbow, I can think of nothing that I could have done except perhaps sleep in some crazy contorted position that could have done this.  I had really bad leg cramps in the middle of the night last night so I suspect that I was most likely thrashing about and therefore not particularly nice to myself.  I have been very bad this week with my swimming (ie. I have not been to the pool all week) so I know that is not it.  Oh well, my massage therapist should be able to help be straighten that out as well, along with everything else, in case you cannot tell I am really excited to see Tom (massage therapist) tomorrow!

I have noticed that some people have a workout tracker on their blogs, I cannot figure out how to do that so I am going to post what my weekly totals look like on Sundays, it will give me good perspective for the coming week.

This week's workout totals
Biking     59 miles
Running   24 miles
Hours     8.3

I am going to try a recipe for homemade Lara bars that I found on another blog, "I Tri to Be Me" I am really excited, I LOVE Lara Bars especially the Cherry Pie bar, hopefully I will have a favorable report soon!

Have a fabulous Sunday!!

Thanks for the shout out for the lara bars! I hope you like them! Let me know how they turn out!

Also, if you're interested, here is the link to the site that I use to track my workouts on my blog:
It is super easy to use. Plus, I really like the cute little icons they have for the different activities! :)
