On this day in 1901, Herbert "Zeppo" Marx, the youngest of the famous Marx Brothers, is born in New York City.<br><br>
Goooooooodmornign tri-peeps!! Let's get out there!! I've got the gym planned for noon and a lot of digging out at my desk on the scheduled for today.

Chilly start to this Monday morning here in New England. I'm happy to report that over the last 8 hours, I must've made some ground on this Flu thing, because late yesterday and most of the night all I could do was force myself into starting a fire in the fireplace while sitting back and sipping on a pint of Guinness that was by then growing warm from sitting out too long. I say "force" myself because I just didn't have the energy. Very different this morning. More on that in a bit.<br><br>
LRR: Welcome back, fishdog... and nice to see you back starting threads. Who are the Marx Brothers anyway? Did you go to high school with them? And are they related to a Karl Marx? I think I read about him in high school history class.<br><br>
Me...<br><br>
4.5 mile rather hilly run early this morning. After struggling to get out of bed due to the Flu still causing me to sleep long hours, I finally headed out on my run with the intention of going 3 or 4 very easy miles that I knew would hurt anyway in the body and lungs because, well, all my last runs since the Flu have hurt. Within an eithth of a mile I knew this would be different. I not only had bounce in my step, but my body didn't hurt. A mile in I knew I must've turned a corner with this sickness because my lungs didn't hurt nearly as bad. So I decided to do a longer loop, this one quite hilly. Pace was solid. Body didn't hurt nearly as much as lately. But my lungs were still beaten up. Where I usually charge up a hill and hope to find a sliver of time to recover once over the hill while maintaining pace, I charged up okay but couldn't run through the top of the hill because my lungs just couldn't get in the oxygen.<br><br>
Still, I'm pysched. But unfortunately still sleeping a lot, which caused me to miss a morning swim. Might try that later tonight if I'm feeling good.<br><br>
Good week, Tri-peeps!

I just finished up a 1.5 mile time trial. I showed some improvement once again. I went from 8:55 to 8:44 (avg pace 5:50); right at a 2% improvement. It is still slower than I should be capable of running 1.5 miles. I should be able to get it down to a 5:40 pace or better.<br><br>
Have a great day all.

Thor - good to see you back in the game. Don't push too hard too soon.<br><br>
Dave - Nice job on the time trial.<br><br>
Stepped out the door this morning and nearly slid down my driveway. It had rained overnight, then froze. Turned right around, went back inside and ran on the dreadmill. No use killing myself on a recovery day.<br><br>
7 miles in 61 minutes with an average HR of 126. Strength and core training tonight.<br><br>
Last week was another strong one.<br><br>
swim - 2500m<br>
bike - 55.8 mi<br>
run - 60.7 mi<br><br>
On Sat., my run included 2 thirty minute tempo sections that were supposed to be at marathon pace (6:25). Last year about this time of year, I ran a 45 min tempo at 6:28 pace and my HR was 174. This time I hit the first 30 min tempo section at 6:23 pace and the second one at 6:17 pace, and my HR averaged 167 both times. Feeling like I'm making some good strides in training this year.<br><br>
Have a great week everyone!<br><br>
Mike

I have not posted on this thread previously, but now that I am biking and swimming much more seriously, I MIGHT be considered a tri peep. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I did 50 miles on the bike yesterday and ran 4.7 this morning. Blah - I hate short runs!!!! I have been struggling with ITBS since my marathon and have therefore had to cut way back on running. It sucks, but I have just started getting Graston/ART, so shopefully that will fix me up soon. I've been swimming almost everyday to replace my running miles.

Welcome Abb!<br><br>
Blew off my swim/core this morning because I had to go to the hospital as DS4 was getting tubes in and possible tonsils OUT and likely adenoids OUT. Ended up with tubes IN adenoids OUT. Just got home. He's doing fine, although he was P[email protected] when he woke up and we weren't around so he was crying, then coughing, then it hurt, then he threw up he was so upset and... so on. He had just gotten some morphine and had someone there helping give him a little misty treatment w/ O2 to help his breathing - his throat HAD to be BEYOND RAW from the coughing and then throwing up. OMG I cannot imagine how much that probably hurt! <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
We're home and he's doing much better, he was VERY pleased he could have ice cream "for breakfast" (at 11am!).<br><br>
So we'll see, maybe I'll sneak out for a swim maybe not, depends on how he's doing. He's zoning out on the couch right now

Abb - you are definitely a tri peep. Keep it up!<br>
Thor - glad you are feeling better.<br>
Ron - glad DS4 is okay. that sounds very painful poor thing.<br><br>
1-hour trainer ride for me this morning, moderately hard gear, trying to keep above 90 rpm. Rest of the day sitting in meetings and then home late.

7.17 miles in 1:18:38 Lance Armstrong said i set a new personal best in the mile. I wonder what happened to Paula Radcliffe she was the one that was to be telling me how hot i was not Lance Armstrong.

Ron when my son had his tonsil taken out i actually enjoyed the quiet time. It only lasted for about 5-7 days. I hope yours gets to feeling better.

rest day for me today after my race yesterday. got some weird leg soreness going on today. I posted in the equip forum - I think it's the new shoes I ran in, but I can't tell for sure.

Ron - I bet he will bounce back very quickly thanks to the icecream!<br><br>
I am resuming an early AM trainer session, with an anticipation of the bad news of my foot (= no more marathon until fall)... I am ready to accept that.<br>
70 min. including Power/tempo workout JR posted a while ago. Lots of sweat. Legs screaming while HR didn't go up much. Yeah, this is very familiar... no bike legs with a decent aerobic engine.<br>
2600m swim - tech day. I am plesantly surprised during the three sets of<br>
{100 - breathing only to the weak side, 75 - catchup, 50 - focus on harder kick after catch, 25 - powerful swim}, my 100 was about 1:37. Uh? Faster than breathing to my comfortable R side? I will explore this little further soon.<br><br>
Have a good week!

Rest day for me, but yesterday was so fun!<br><br>
I did a 3.6 mile run (first since my race), legs felt like lead! UGH!<br><br>
But, then we took DDs (6) out for a 3 mile bike ride followed by a 3 mile run, and they did great!! We all had a blast! Of course, we got ice cream afterward (it was nearly 80 degrees out yesterday)! That's the longest they have exercised in one stretch. They are going to run a 10K on March 30, so we're training them for that.<br><br>
DH is out of town Tues. and Wed., so this week will be tricky fitting everything in. I may be at the gym doing a bit. I'm officially starting my tri training this week (though I don't have a real plan yet).

35-40 minute X-country ski at lunch. One bump - but no smooshed up face (sorry Beth) - Beautiful 40-ish and sunny day; a little sticky and thin in spots, but great to be outside.<br><br>
DW/Kids have the week off to enjoy it - lucky buggers (family vacation not until April).<br><br>
DD went to the New England 12&Under Age Group Championships in Attleboro this weekend. It was - literally - 3.5-4 hours in the car for 35 seconds of racing!<br><br>
She acquitted herself well - didn't break her seed (added about .75 and .5 seconds to her 100/50 fly respectively) - but didn't sieze up and have a bad race either. Final position was close to the bottom in 100 Fly (maybe 26/323?), but a very respectable 22/47 in the 50 fly (and the 5th fastest 9YO - so positives for next year).<br><br>
Definitely a different level of ability at this level of competitive swimming (9/10 YOs doing 100 free in under a minute; winning 9/10 100Y back time for girls was about 1:08 ... fast, fast, fast!).<br><br>
Anyway - very proud of her, and she seemed okay - but happy to get the racing out of the way (she was uncharacteristically nervous about it - usually very relaxed on race day). Didn't help that the atmosphere wasn't your typical one - only 3 swimmers from our team were at 12&U age groups, so she wasn't exactly chilling with her swim buds before time!<br><br>
