On this day in 1965 the New York Jets signed University of Alabama quarterback Joe Namath for a reported $400,000.<br><br>
Back to reality today... Out for 5 easy un-timed miles with the M-Dawg. Footing on the side roads and pedestrian paths was treacherous - main roads not too bad. Seems like a lot of folks still waking up today... It hurts!<br><br>
Throw hard kiss the women tri-peeps!

And he just graduated.<br><br>
Up before 5 am for the first time in several weeks. On the trainer for 35 minutes of strength work. Then out the door with the dog for some more leg strength work. I think the dog wonders what in the world I am doing (lunges) that makes me so slow.<br><br>
Hoping to get to the pool late this evening. Hopefully the crowd won't be bad.

"rest" day involving 8am -> 4pm worth of travel across the country with kids. But I will leave -21 wind chill advisory for 47 degrees in orlando? Well, it's still 66degrees better, so I'll take it - but Grandma is freakin out because she's not sure how to handle this extreme COLD!

wtg on your workouts--LRR, JK, and TITHERS!<br><br>
TITHER--what is your swim test (I know its a secret--but does your coach test you to see how fit you are or how far you have progressed? is it in a pool or the OW)?<br><br>
PCS--enjoy your travel! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><br>
I am running 30minutes at LHR and than my usual core routine.....pool doesnt open until next week --so no swim or bike for me until next week....so wish I had a bike and trainer at home......<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I have YET to do the test...prolly during lunch since it's a teacher day.<br>
It's a fit type of test...which kinda sooks b/c I just started swimming again. Basically, it tells him, who will tell me what time I should be swimming my 100 repeats in.<br><br>

Was planning on 1000 Meter TT in the pool. No luck the doors were locked. I guess i will try again at lunch. Hopefully they will be open. So opted for 9 miles on the trainer.

44:39 for 3000yds? Must have been going downstream. Crazy. I love and hate how xflbk keeps such exacting swim data.

I am a little obsessive about it. Okay, a LOT obsessive about it. <img alt="blush.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif"> If you want, I'll send you my spreadsheet sometime.

Well I don't usually post in the daily thread but as this is my big training year I am going to document it somewhere. <img alt="hello.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello.gif"><br><br>
3 mile run in frigid temps for VA and 1500 in the pool with the old ladies. My legs feel like lead after the drinking and eating binge of the last week, bleh!

2700 yards at the pool this morning - it was frigid outside! Almost convinced myself to stay under the covers when I heard the wind going nuts, and knowing it was 25F (cold here!!), but I made it out.<br><br>
Trainer workout tonight. I need some motivation for that - I'm really disliking the trainer these days...

Lots of good swim workouts. Is Wednesday swim day?<br><br>
For me, I spent an hour on the bike trainer at recovery effort and then spent 30 minutes shoveling snow. There was a strong breeze blowing so half of what I threw off of the north side of my driveway came back in my face.<br><br>

Did you get your grades entered? Entering grades isn't nearly as bad as figuring out grades. Yuk!<br><br>
