On this day in 1866 Jesse James and his gang commit the first armed bank robbery in United States history during peacetime in Liberty, Missouri. James would die in 1882 after being shot in the back by fellow gang member Bob Ford.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a7/Jesse_James.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>

Snow? Gee, that's too bad. Another day approaching 50 here.<br><br>
Up early for a swim workout in a very crowded pool. Didn't feel too good in the water. Swam 25 minutes and took off. Will be back tomorrow.<br><br>
Thighs are shredded today from strength work yesterday. Will be doing mile repeats tonight. Should feel real nice.<br><br>
Don't turn your back on your associates tri-peeps!<br><br>

Swim later...I wonder if I'll have to make up my own workout.<br><br>
Today is supposed to be SPEED day. Sherry doesn't like Speed day.<br><br>
For the first time ever I threw my IMFL blue cap in my bag...I think I need to refocus on why I'm doing this...plus a little intimidation factor in the pool doesn't hurt.<br><br>
Hopefully no one will steal my flip flops today! SHizzle!!! Someone took them on Monday. I'm not too mad about it...they were cheap old navy ones..black...I'm pretty sure someone thought mine was theirs.<br><br>
I'm a little less PMS-sy today. For now anywayz.

Survived last night's run in the snow at a drastically slower speed than usual. Oh well, 45minutes of running was followed by 30minutes of spinning.<br><br>
Tonight-1:10bike/20min run...a brick on a Wednesday...I think my coach has lost her mind. But she's great; she didn't even freak when I quit masters<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Stay warm out there, we're at our warmest day so far this week (+10F).

Yuck on the snow. Glad I moved away from that.<br><br>
2850 at the pool this morning, mostly IM stuff which I suck at. I've decided I hate pool toys with a passion. For about the 8th time this winter I was nailed hard with a paddle from someone in the next lane over and am sporting a nice bruise from it. Can't be playing with those things when we're 4-5 people in a lane <img alt="mad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif"> I still like my kickboard tho....<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Tonight will be a trainer workout with intervals.<br><br>
Have a great day all!

It's not *just* snow we're getting here in New England. You see, this stuff is actually much worse. It all started yesterday evening with a gentle snow that quickened in its fall. That continued overnight until very early this morning, still at a time when not even the early morning runner like myself is stirring, when the temperatures rose enough to turn the snow, which had already accumulated to 6 inches or more, into sleet and a few hours later, now at the height of rush hour, into rain. And now, just after rush hour, the rain is coming down rather steadily with all the snow blocking storm drains and gullies such that the area is flooding. And by tonight, when the rain is supposed to still be falling, it *may* turn again to freezing rain and then snow. Very sloppy.<br><br>
Me...<br><br>
4.5 mile careful-footed trot through the early morning slop. Got splashed by plows and cars alike and did some splashing. Tired run. Followed by...<br><br>
1 hour of heavy-lifting snow shoveling. Damn, my driveway is big.<br><br>
And because I anticipated yesterday evening having to shovel a very heavy, wet snow this morning, after work yesterday I got in the swim I would have done today. So add 40 lap up-tempo swim to yesterday's workout. Averaged a 56 secs per 50 yards, a bit lower if you knocked out my warm up laps and cool down.<br><br>
Great day, Tri-robbers!

40 minutes of shoveling heavy, wet snow with a nice crusty layer of ice on top of it. Will hit the treadmill tonight if I can get to the gym (am carless due to weather)

Fun running test this morning in the ex phys lab.<br>
Who knew I could generate that much spit without being able to drink while running?<br><br>
5 min wu<br>
5 min steady state<br>
5 min up pace<br>
1 min same pace up 2%<br>
1 min same pace up another 2%<br>
1 min same pace up another 2% (did NOT fall off back of TM)<br><br>
My gadget said my HR got to 105% of max! he he he.<br>
I think the standard numbers are a bit off for me.<br><br>
Once I get the results back, I do believe I"ll be resetting those zone numbers and percentages on the gadget.

2300yd swim this morning:<br>
500 warmup,<br>
400 drills,<br>
5x200 on :30 rest (2:59.28 avg),<br>
4x50 on :10 rest (41.85 avg),<br>
200 cooldown.<br>
Swim was a struggle this morning. I just felt my form was off and I was having trouble concentrating. By the last 200 interval, my stroke count was slipping to the 14 count range per length, but I was able to correct it for the 50's. The cooldown slipped back up to the 14's, so I'm guessing it was just fatigue and I wasn't getting enough power per stroke. I guess fatigue probably contributed to the loss of form too, since I had trouble from the start.<br><br>
1hr run this afternoon.<br><br>
Great workouts to all!!

Nothing for me - but I'm gonna count 2+ hours wrasslin' with my bad-ass snowblower. Frickin' rain turned the snow into concrete about 1/2 way through.<br><br>
Reg.<br><br>
Note - probably 5-600 feet worth of snow blowing my driveway/private road, plus another two tracks of 2-300 feet to the mailboxes. When it's slick as ... [insert creative simile here], it's equivalent to a workout.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2089/2263084110_2f26f79e72_o.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

I know EXACTLY the "snow" y'all are dealing with. We had it yesterday. I'm claiming htat shoveling that crap for half an hour should count for some sort of workout!!! My arms are DEAD today.<br><br>
Met with my swim coach this morning. Was supposed to be a 30min session, but turned into a full hour. Dead arms or not, he worked me hard!<br><br>
Then for a run. Though about running the Last Chance route, but decided traffic was too heavy and did my usual route. Bad move. I run sidewalks up here. When the city plowed yesterday, they threw the slushy crap on the sidewalk. That refroze last night, and was covered by a nice layer of fresh snow. Good workout on ankle stability... Ended up cutting it short because my legs were getting tired. 3.8m, 34:40, 9:08pace
