Sporadic training

I've been having a hard time keeping up with the training on a frequent enough basis. I did those 2 runs in a row, then a week later, I did an 11 mile bike ride (in 55min - ugh!), and then today I ran 4 miles. I really had to push to get in all 4 miles and it took me 50 minutes, but I did it. I wanted to prove to myself that I could keep running even when I'm really tired. (It was hot, too.) I did more walking than I would have liked, but I did run (at my slow and steady pace) for most of it. Sometime in the next week I want to do a swim/bike/run combo and use the parking lot at the gym(pool) as my transition area. I've got a route planned from there with an 11 mile bike and 3 mile run. Wish me luck. (The race is in 2 weeks.)

Well...sporadic training is better than no training and at least you have a plan for next week (plans are good things).Having a deadline looming may be good motivation until the big day comes. Just keep at it.

You go girl! Every little bit adds up, and don't beat yourself up for what can't be helped or what has passed.

That's smart to plan a route and know what you want to work on. The more you can visualize your goals, the more likely you are to make them happen. I hope you can make the time to work on your plan. Keep us posted as you get closer to the big day. I'm cheering for you!
