OMG the Heat

Finished up my last big training exercise today. Ran 16.8 in what must have been the muggiest conditions i have ever seen. The temperature has been triple digits for weeks now. When I started running this morning (at 5:50AM) i bet the dew point was about 80. My feet were sweating before i started to run. My heart rate was about where i would expect, but i ran the SLOWEST time in about 7 years. I'm not too worried about it though. The conditions were absolutely extreme. Checking the weather in Vitoria, I should expect high in the 70's and dew points in the 40's. Perfect.

So now its taper time. My groin injury is about 80% better. Frankly not to worried about it. I was really just worried if it would get worse. Seems to have stabilized.

I may do a 1 or 2 mile swim race the week before the race. This will help give me a little last second swimming peace of mind. Will probably do a couple more small bricks and that's about it. Basically 2 weeks of work left, then on to Europe! Wow. Can't believe it is already time.
