Comments
All in all a good week.  Had a great run Thursday night and was able to push pace a bit for last half of run.  Got HR up into "danger" zone but backed off pace just a tad and tried to keep at it.  
Felt great that I didn't give up:)  Next time I will push for longer and try to get my wits through mind games!  Swims this week were strong, saw some nice times on Monday and felt good pushing.  Lots of trainer time on the bike this week so I can't wait to get back outside again.
