On this day 1986, on the 19th anniversary (plus one day) of the Apollo I tragedy, space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, killing all seven crew members.<br><br>
My goal for the day is to get a doctor's visit scheduled and executed while juggling meetings at work. I'll start looking at alternative workouts once I've got a real diagnosis.<br><br>
Overcome your setbacks tri-peeps!!

Good morning all! I'm finally starting to feel myself again after a nasty ear/lymph node infection last week. Not fun, I don't recommend it.<br><br>
Went to master's swim this morning; it was a 3000 yd workout, but I probably did 25-2600 of it as I took a few extra rests as I'm still a little tired. It's good to be back! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I was too young to remember the Apollo accident, the Challenger disaster was very real to me.<br><br>
Good luck at the doctor's LRR!<br><br>
A couple of recovery workouts for me this morning. A 1 hr ride on the trainer, all zone 1. Followed by a 30 minute run, zone 1 again. Just getting the blood flowing in the legs after yesterday's long workout.<br><br>
Masters swim tonight.<br><br>
Last week's totals -<br>
5700m swimming<br>
75.5 mi biking<br>
39.25 mi running<br>
13 hours total<br><br>
Down a bit from previous weeks, but not as much as I would expect during a recovery week. Legs feel good and ready to go again tomorrow.<br><br>
Remember the fallen, tri-peeps.<br><br>

Rest day, post yesterday's race. I'll be taking the kids for a 3m death march this afternoon, though. I had planned on shopping for shoes this afternoon. HOwever, my legs informed me that we will not be doing so.

Like having your bike stolen? Yup. That's me....bikeless, now.<br><br>
Short version....It's gone. I saw it in a yard. I called the police (I'd already filed a report). We got there. It was gone again. He looked around, spoke to some folks.....He said he'd go back after school and try to see if he could find someone at the house. (*sigh*)<br><br>
First, I'm at the gym cause I didn't cold weather gear.<br>
I ordered some<br>
Now, I'll be at the gym cause I don't have a BIKE!! aaarrrhgghghgh<br><br>
That being said....<br><br>
Did my 60 min for 18.1 on the stationary (do those distances translate at all accurately to the road?)<br>
And my 20 min run (plus TM cooldown....) for 23 min total and 2 miles.<br><br>
Great start to the week!

Yawn... stretch... oh my, look... it's Monday already... again! They come so fast...<br><br>
All: Thank you for the kind words on my looooong run yesterday in the snow. I'm still amazed to be able to run that kind of distance and know I could have gone farther. It really is amazing what the human body can do when treated like an engine. I think the biggest thing enabling my ability to keep going was the relaxed pace coupled with nailing hydration and nutrition. The day went from being very slick with an inch of slippery snow to warming temps where the falling snow turned only to sloppy slush. By mile 28 my feet was sopping wet and very, very cold. But thanks to SmartWool layering on my core, I was fine!<br><br>
Jules: Get back on the horse and before long you won't feel bad or even think about the downtime.<br><br>
LRR: Fingers crossed the doc's visit goes well.<br><br>
Me, trying NOT to think about a 50 Mile Ultra...<br><br>
1.5+ mile streak-extending recovery run to get the blood flowing. Followed by...<br><br>
30 lap steady swim. Was able to swim with my right arm. Arm has healed enough to give me, maybe, 80% of full strength. Still can't pull with power, but at least I can now swim laps using it.<br><br>
Rocket to the moon, Tri-peeps, but first check your bearings.

Bummer.<br><br>
On the good news front... Saw Doc Dong (my PCP) this morning. He bent my knee in several unexpected directions - a couple of which made me squirm or things pop - and pronounced minimal instability and little fluid in the joint which would indicate a relatively minor sprain/strain of the MCL. Continue RICE. Don't run for at least a couple of weeks. Swimming OK. Bike OK after a couple of days - take it easy and don't do things that hurt. Amputation will NOT be necessary and I should fully recover. So… Could have been worse. I'll get through it. And I'm gonna catch that kid next time!!!
