Thursday- Swim 1500, Run 4 speed work

All I did was the 30 mile ride and then the long run on Tuesday, and then I got sick and took the rest of the week off. Wednesday-Friday I could barely get out of bed my head hurt so bad, and then I slowly started to feel better on the weekend. Yuck!
I still think I am okay as far as my training goes, I think it was more important to rest than to push through. I still have 3-4 good rides before the Triple, so I should be okay. My Dad keeps telling me that it isn't a race, so as long as we aren't out to break land speed records, I will be fine.
I am getting excited about a few things. One, I got a new bike saddle. I can't help but thinking that I can be more comfortable than I am on my bike in regards to my butt. My seat is just okay. It is better than the stock seat that came with Belle, but not as good as I think it could be. I just invested in a new saddle after reading many online reviews and got the Selle Italia Diva Gel Flow one, in black. I only have yesterday's ride to vouch for, but it was better. Not perfect, but better than the one I have been on, the Surfas RX. I will keep you posted!
Nothing else new. Glad to be feeling better, here is what is on tap this week for training:
Monday (yesterday) - Bike 30
Tuesday - swim 2500, run 6
Wednesday - Bike 40, OWS night
Thursday - Run 3 speed, Swim 1750
Friday - Bike 65 with climbing
Saturday - Long run, 8 miles
In the meantime, Happy training and racing!
