My arms have been replaced by noodles. Good thing typing doesn't requre lifting my arms.<br><br>
Okay, so LAST night I did 1:00 trainer ride w/lots of muscle builds in the big ring, low cadence low HR. 19.5mi This whole progress on the bike thing is starting to freak me out-I am getting nervous for outdoor riding...okay I'll try to stay calm and confident.<br><br>
THIS morning Friday pool workout also known as torture fest. Here is how it looked...<br>
W/U-200 free, 200 alternate 50free/50non, 200 pull<br>
Main Set- Descending 3x100, 50 back, 3x100, 50 back, 3x100, 50 back, 3x100, 50 back<br>
C/D-8x25 No breath, 200 free easy<br><br>
I am happy to say that excluding one 100 ALL of my 100s were between 1:55-2:01 which meant I had a reasonable rest since I had specific intervals to use.<br><br>
Tonight is 30min zone 1 run.<br><br>
Back on track after a bad start to the week-work hard today tripeeps<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Good Morning All!<br><br>
Looks like this weekend will be a mess, here in VT. Lots of nice rain, freezing rain, sleet, and even some snow. Sounds like March to me. Well, in like a lion...<br><br>
15 minutes of rowing followed by 60 minutes of easy but 110 rpm spinning. I'm hoping to get out for a lunch time run, since running opportunities this weekend will be slim.<br><br>
Have a great day everybody.<br>
Victor

Good morning folks,<br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:small;">Busy morning today. I lifted this morning, doing upper body and legs. Skipped the leg press and squats since my knee was a little sore so it was just leg extensions and seated leg curls. Then I did yoga. A friend was the instructor and I accused her of changing posses based on if I was able to do them. If I could do it she moved on but if I had a problem we seemed to stay on that one longer. It was a good class and ended with some ab work. Then I decided to get some pool work in so I did a straight 1200 yard swim. I should be at 1650 yards by the end of the month which is good so I can train for the Olympic distance swim that I signed up for in June. LRR and Thor were also in the pool.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Have a great weekend and stay dry, if possible.</span>

Hello London!!!<br><br>
Pretty early to be running this late but...<br><br>
As MoN says, swam next to Ironboy at the YMCA this mornign. 2,000 yards as...
<ul><li>900y Forest Gump warm-up (swam the last of these laps in a PR 54 seconds)</li>
<li>300y drill up/swim back (2x l, r, catch-up)</li>
<li>400y pull buoy</li>
<li>400y cool-down</li>
</ul>
I was pretty amazed by the 54 second lap!!

40 minutes in the pool today-1350 yards. Combo of kicking, drills and trying to get stronger on my freestyle. The pool was WAY crowded, all lines had at least 2 people in them, and more waiting to get in-you can tell everyone is starting to think about TRI season quickly approaching. 2 older ladies who "walk" kicked someone out of the "leisure lane" which I think was wrong--they should have showed up at 5:30am like the rest of us.<br>
Happy Friday everyone!

I am actually going to run outside today. The weather/road conditions look like they will cooperate for my fav 5.5 mile run around a local lake.<br>
Need to strength train as well since I took yesterday off.

Skipped the trainer session last night do to a fierce craving I developed for a Midwestern style fish fry. Don't ask...these happen to me on occasion. So we went to the local fry house and shelved the salmon for today.<br><br>
That means I've been up for an hour or so making circles in the garage with Coach Troy and Hillacious.<br><br>
45 minute fartlek run planned for lunch and I'm toying with a triple so I can sleep in tomorrow. If I do it, it will be 2000 or so meters of easy swimming and some drills.<br><br>
No work for the weekend and buy off from the boss to push back if the area insists on meeting.<br><br>
TGIF!

Rest day for me. Last night I did 40 minutes on the stationary bike, hill route level 13. Getting pretty close to a "real" workout. Today my right knee is dandy, the left one hurts if I twist it, but otherwise is okay.<br><br>
Make yourself heard today Peeps!<br><br>
Thor - I posted a link in the "hydration" thread.

30 minute weak trainer ride last night. I was planning on an easy spin but turned it into a pathetic ride, I can't say spin because the cadence rarely topped 90. Maybe a 1-2 mile run tonite and then 1st tri tomm.
