<p>Good morning, TEAM LIT!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Busy so right to it for me...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>5.65 mile run early this morning with Andyman and the Diesel.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Followed immediately by...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>17 mile ride. Thought I saw a friend as I was on my way back, so I tried to turn back to give chase, but traffic didn't allow me to do so for another minute or two, after which I gave chase, got him in sight, but then gave up knowing that I was crunched for time and, to be sure, I wasn't quite confident it was him.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great day, Tri-peeps!</p>

<p>Good morning everyone!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice workout Thor!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did a 31 mile group ride this morning.  Just didn't feel as though I was in the game today.  I don't think my head was in it today, idk.  My left knee is giving me problems again; I guess I should be happy I went almost 2 years with little problems.  I think it came from the downhill running during my HIM.  It took me a few days to find my knee brace.  Tearing the house apart looking for it.  I found it this morning, go figure, it was here at work and not at the house.  lol</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy training everyone.</p>

<p>Good job Thor and David, getting out there early to get some solid mileage in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for me:</p>
<p>AM:  3,400m in the ole swimming pool.  I cheated and cut my cool down short by a 100m, I just wanted to get out of that damn pool.  NOTE: I arrived at my gym at 5:05AM and was on the pool deck by 5:15AM and every lane was taken with a couple doubled up already.  WTF?  So many crazy people up early to swim....I count myself as one of them.</p>
<p>500m wu, 4 x 100 drills, 5 x 200m @30sec, 5 x 100m @20sec, 5 x 50m @10sec, 6 x 25 @5sec, 8 x 50m drills, 200m cd</p>
<p> </p>
<p>PM:  My 1.25 hour run (@10 min, insert 3 x 6 min Z4 @2 min job) at lunch turned into a 45 minute run due to time contraints....DAMN!!!  I felt horrible for the first 15 minutes then all of sudden I felt great, doing negative splits for the entire length. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a super-duper day everyone!</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Good morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>No workout for me today, unless you count physical therapy.  I have wonky hips, with a touch of arthritis, tight IT bands, and hip bursitis.  Thankfully, the PT is helping quite a lot although it's been a long haul.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yesterday I ran 2 miles, walked 1 mile, and then stretched & did abdominals for 30 minutes.  So that was nice.....and tomorrow I'll run again.  Thursday will be PT again, then Friday is spinning, Saturday is running & yoga, and Sunday is spinning.  If the weather cooperates over the weekend, DH and I will do a short hike of about 3-4 miles too.  But you can never count on that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I must admit that I'm a-skeered to cycle outside.  I live in the burbs of NY where the drivers are lunatics and there are frequent cycle/car injuries and even fatalities.  Not to mention the giant hills here, and lack of sidewalks.  I've been tempted to purchase a bike & find bike trails, but work is so intensive that I think I'd end up only using the bike 10-or so times per year and that's a high investment for such limited usage.  In addition, the outfits are so ugly!!!  LOL.  How does everyone else deal with these issues?  I'd be interested in hearing some solutions.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>What is TEAM LIT?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Enjoy your day, everyone.</p>

<p>Just a bike commute home for me later today, pretty tame day.  No complaints here, though!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Susan - Team LIT is us.  We used to all hang out at the CoolRunning forum until they decided it was too much work and sold the forum to the Active network.  That was a total disaster and many of us became lost in the transition.  Eventually the bulk of the group wound up here and we refered to ourselves as the Lost In Transition group.  Team LIT.  We even made hats and visors, complete with our own logo!</p>

You can pick up a used bike pretty cheap, as well as a used (or low-end new) resistance trainer.  Buy a handful of Spinerval DVD's and a few good movies and you can cycle for hours and hours right in the comfort of your own garage/basement/kitchen.  That's what most of us do from about November to March.  Eventually, though, you should plan to get out and ride around - it's SO enjoyable!  True, it can be dangerous at times, but so can driving to work and back.  Feel free to start a new thread on this topic, you'll get tons of useful advice!!</p>

<p>Insanity Pure Cardio this morning.  That's it for today I think.  Maybe a run this evening but I don't think it will work with today's schedule.  Had my first masters swim last night with the new coach at a new pool.  I'm not one to complain but the water was freezing.  At least the showers afterward were hot!  Main set was 3x300s with 50 m stroke counts in between.</p>

Nothing again today. I may try to walk later, push the little guy in the stroller. Feeling better and very anxious to move around but still don't want to push it. Thinking about an easy swim tomorrow.

<p>Welcome Susan!</p>

<p> </p>
<p>Dare I say...run?  Lungs have recovered from the sickies and my legs still work so there isn't any excuse.  Will head out once the munchkin goes to bed tonight.  DH started a HM training plan last night so he'll spin on the trainer while I run next to him on the treadmill.  Lifestyles of new parents, so romantic!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Edited to add: 2 miles/21:31 nice to know the legs remember how to do this...sorta.</p>

<p>I bought lots of makeup, which is a scary thing for me to do.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" title=""></p>
<p>Feel like I should go out and get sweaty and dirty again to balance this.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" title=""></p>
<p>Going to a Rush concert tonight in Boston (Moving Pictures LIVE in its entirety!).  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif" title=""></p>

<p>My brother's wedding is on Saturday.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif" title=""></p>
<p>Still have rather noticeable tanlines on my back, however.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif" title=""></p>

<p>cake, hit the self tanner.  I use the aveeno and it works really well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>let's see, what excitement is on tap for me?  I'll do my PT exercises and then go to pilates.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>oh, and please send me motivational vibes... I need to drag my lazy butt out of bed tomorrow AM to swim before work.   AdCo and I started a 12 week swim clinic (with video analysis and everything, fancy-schmancy) so I need to get in the pool and work on the things she pointed out.  In an attempt to remotivate/un-depress myself with the whole continuing hip debacle I have a plan A and a plan B for next season (depending on whether or not I need surgery/am ever allowed to bike and run again).  Both plans require me to get my butt in the pool and start getting some fitness back, and more importantly, start thinking of myself as an athlete again.</p>

<p>Haven't posted here in awhile as I spent most of last week moving...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>2250 yards in the pool today. It was pretty miserable - I think I'm just really tired from a long season and I'm starting to pay a price for that. The workout splits were actually alright, but I felt awful and just couldn't wait to go home and lay down!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>- 300</p>
<p>- 4 x 50 on 60 (35-37)</p>
<p>- 300</p>
<p>- 4 x 50 on 60 (35 - 37)</p>
<p>- 4 x 200 on 3:30 sendoffs (2:26, 2:24, 2:26, 2:26)</p>
<p>- 3 x 150</p>

<p>Morning:  4 miles run....supah fast (for me).  <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bike commute in,..... hills are getting easier, and more predictable.  I think that even though these aren't "huge" hills, or even long ones (as compared to the ones out in the country), using the commute as almost a forced time to manage energy and try not to get TOO sweaty is a good thing.  Because, the maintaining of effort keeps the sweat in check.  Or, so I've convinced myself.  I kept hearing Ron saying "anticipate" the hills.....and Thor "break it into thirds" on the way home tonight, and that seemed to make a smoother ride.....fewer spikes in effort.  Then, part way home, I heard a crash.....a motorcyclist "fall down go boom".  He wasn't struck by a car, something wonky happened on his bike, and he went down.  I went over to see if he was ok, lots of folks did....he got some help...so I left.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun day!</p>

<p>Good workouts folks.  They moved my desk at work so now my boss can see my screen, looks like it will have to be either real early posts or late ones.  4+ mile run this morning from the Y.  One of my buddies had on long sleeves, much too early for that and she paid the price.</p>

<p>Great workouts everyone.  Welcome Susan.  Congrats on the recent win Thor, I'll try and say more later, but awesome job.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Had dinner at the Mill Race Inn Gazebo down by the river.  Then walked 4 or 5 miles on the river bike paths and ended up at Graham's for some ice cream.  The perfect post-IM recovery workout.  Heading back up north again tomorrow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great rest of the week everyone!</p>

<p>Enjoy post-IM downtime, Mike & Scott! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>55min in the pool wiht lots of drills.  I don't know what happened to my swimming - just plain slow and out of whack.  I am like 30sec/300m slower than just a few months ago.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">.  Could it be even possible??  I am just trying to get back to basics and see what happens for the next 10 days. </p>
<p>Then about 30min later, I tried to run.  Legs were so heavy and I just didn't feel like pushing and waiting for them to come alive (which probably would have after 15min) was the right thing to do.  I decided to listen to my body.  Little can be gained from now to the Natls.  I just want to get out of this blah/dead-leg feeling.  Tomorrow is another day, right? </p>
