On March 28, 1899, August Busch, the American businessman who built Anheuser-Busch into the world's largest brewery, was born.<br><br>
Record setting 2,500y lap swim this morning!
<ul><li>1,200y Forrest Gump warm-up (punctuated after 650y by a conversation with Ironboy who was just showing up).</li>
<li>4 x 50y on 1:15 (0:48, 0:48, 0:49, 0:50)</li>
<li>300y pull buoy</li>
<li>300y drill up, swim back (2x l, r, catch up)</li>
<li>250y flippers</li>
<li>250y cool down</li>
</ul>
The 2,500y is a distance record and the 0:48 is a record for 50y by 3 seconds! I was fish-like!! (OK, it's a relative thing.)<br><br><i>Here comes The King, here comes the big Number One!<br>
Budweiser beer, the king is second to none.<br>
Just say Budweiser, you've said it all.<br>
Here comes The King Of Beers, so lift your glass, let's hear the call.<br>
Budweiser Beer's the one that's leading the rest,<br>
And beechwood aging makes it beer at its best.<br>
One taste'll tell you so loud and clear.<br>
There's only one Budweiser beer, there's only one Budweiser beer!<br>
When you say Bud there's nothing left you can say.<br>
(When you say Bud!)<br>
When you say Bud, The King is right on his way!<br>
(When you say Bud!)<br>
The King is coming, let's hear the call,<br>
When you say Bud you've said it all.<br>
When you say Bud you've said it all!<br>
Ya da da da da da da da da da da<br>

Budweiser - the breakfast of champions! Raise a toast tri-peeps!!

Congratulations on another record-setting session, John!<br><br>
Easy 5 miler this morning, splashing and getting splashed, and slipping for the entire time. Hate running in water, mud, snow piles. Enough of this weather<img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif">.

Arrived in Naples, FL yesterday, bike made it ok. When to the LBS to figure out where to ride.<br><br>
AM: 45 minute zone 1 run. I actually wore a singlet out!<br><br>
Then 90 minute ride: 27.7 something miles. Not bad considering I stopped several times trying to figure out where I was. This was my first ride outdoors this year. Legs felt powerful from all the trainer riding.<br><br>
Later OWS in the gulf. Can't wait! Happy training everyone!

Anyone have experience with moving to a high elevation? I'm moving to over 5000ft in 5 wks (colorado)! And I'm nervous about my workouts. I've run there before, and I could run forever, just very slowly. I know it will be frustrating and I'm not looking foward to it.

Sorry about the original daily workout post for today. Guess I still thought it was Thursday.<br><br>
B-day went good last night. Pizza was delicious as always and my wife's grandmother made the cake...a peanut butter cake....YUM!!!! I got this: <a href="http://www.rocketsciencesports.com/Elite_Bag_Page.php" target="_blank">http://www.rocketsciencesports.com/Elite_Bag_Page.php</a> from my parents. I actually don't have it yet because it was on back order, but is supposed to be delivered today according to DHL!<br><br>
2200yd swim this morning:<br>
350 warm up,<br>
1500 straight in 22:37.05 (stayed consistent with 500 splits of 7:32, 7:35 and 7:28,<br>

In the middle of a very busy day for me. Few workouts, work, CLOSING ON MY OLD HOUSE (can you say new aero wheels!), back to work, wedding crap, oh my.<br><br>
Lord John, Run'nForT3: You guys are seriously kicking butt in the pool. Keep up the great work. Lord John, this morning, as I slipped out of the pool, right after waving goodbye, I paused to catch a glimpse at your tight a$$. But what I saw amazed me. Where you used to slap and fight the water to move forward, you were seriously gliding through it. Nice job! And 48 sec is AWESOME!<br><br>
After struggling to get up with serious sleepies...<br><br>
3+ mile easy slog in the pouring rain with, oh hey, there's a snow flake. Amazingly, I stayed fairly dry. Followed by...<br><br>
41 lap steady swim. Too little energy coupled with too much on the mind to count intervals. So I pulled a "Gump" swim two lanes over from Lord John. Avg. 57-58 secs per 50 yards. Easy swim. But my tempo isn't all that much faster.<br><br>
Did you know that this year is the 100th anniversary of the song "Take Me Out to the Ballgame?" It is.

30 minute trainer ride this am. It wasn't much but it was better than nothing. This week has been hard and tomorrow we head to Colorado for 5 days for a wedding.<br><br>
One of my former students married August Busch IV. The beer at that wedding was outstanding & plentiful. Her dad & I work together so A-B products are the beverages of choice at social functions around here.

Last night did 25 minutes on trainer avg 19.4 mph and then 2 easy treadmill miles. I have not swum in 3 weeks. Plan on a pool session tonite perhaps preceded by some intervals on the treadmill due to our wonderful weather.

Dude, THAT'S HIM. I told you. He's creapy. And he stares at everybody's joystick. Really. The problem is that he seems to know every one, and he's well regarded.

Good morning all! Looks like some good workouts already -<br><br>
Congrats on the house closing Thor - remember to keep your sense of humor through all the stress!<br><br>
Master's swim this morning - I think we did somewhere around 2500-3000, I'm not sure - we did a lot of sprint work, and for the last set of 50's our coach had us doing sprints off the starting block. Been a while since I've done that! Anyway, tough workout, and I'm sure I'll feel it in my shoulders tomorrow!<br><br>
A little crosstraining day for me - I'm home and painting dd's room. I'm a mess! Yellow paint everywhere <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Happy Friday everyone <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

1hr spin, w/ 4x6min @ 40-50cad & Z3 HR - fun<br>
for the Power Folk - I was pushing 200watts for sets 1-3 and since HR kept dropping too low, I did 4th at 215. I probably should have done 205, 210, 215, 220 to get the properly pain that this workout entailed but hey. I Felt I could easily hold the 200 at that HR for hours. Wasn't easy but wasn't as bad as CC made it out to be - so there! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
26min run @ 2.2m

I have done nothing yet. I am in Ohio... on the OSU campus with my sister at her lab (she's a grad student). I am swimming at the OSU pool in their RPAC this afternoon and I am so excited.<br><br>
In the OTHER pool I am interested in these days (March Madness) I am SUCKING. I had picked Tennessee to beat Duke in the championship game. So I am SCREWED.

Old man hoops at lunch...<br><br>
After the tease of spring, slush indeed covers the ground. Maybe pull out the bike again next week though - temps in the 50s forecast. Huzzah.<br><br>

Nice easy 4 mile run after work. Blew about 2 pounds (1 kilogram for those who speak good the metric) of snot out. Fairly dehydrated since I was in 4 straight hours of teleconference to end today. I need to plan ahead and bring a camelbak for those days. It is just me on this end so I can't just boogie. Of course, if I stay hydrated then that brings up another problem. Going on the bike is one thing, sitting behind my computer is another.

2500-meter swim at lunchtime.<br>
500 warm up<br>
400 pull; 2x200 k/s<br>
300 pull; 2x150 k/s<br>
200 pull; 2x100 k/s<br>
100 pull; 2x50 k/s<br>
Should have run too, yesterday or today, but Bannon's knees told my knees to lay off, and they seem wise on this kind of stuff, so I'm going with that advice. Long run tomorrow and long ride Sunday, so that will be plenty for my legs!<br><br>
Happy Friday everyone. I'm off to raid the snack closet at work. Increased exercise has me famished this week.
