2500-ish swim this morning. I almost had to bag it because the lifeguard hadn't shown up yet but she walked in just in time!<br><br>
EZ run tonight.

Strength Endurance session this morning on a trainer. Didn't feel that tired from LT run yesterday but #'s didn't lie. Had to use a lighter gear compared to the last week session to keep 85rpm and I coudln't push enough to bring HR to where it should be.<br><br>
Swim later if I have enough energy.

15 minutes rowing followed by 45 minutes of upper body and core strength training. That's my equivalent of swim training since I don't have access to a pool till June. I followed that by 20 minutes of easy spinning to loosen up the legs.<br><br>
I'm hoping to get in a short run at lunch, work schedule permitting.<br><br>

Forgot to add that I did actually do the ab workout this morning prior to my swim that someone posted in my thread earlier this week. Either I'm incredibly uncoordinated, or have extremely weak abs b/c that ball and me were rolling all over the living room floor <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"> Need to work on that....

Too lazy to post in yesterday's thread, so here's a 2 for 1:<br><br>
Yesterday: 15 minute warmup on elliptical & 3 miles on the treadmill. Swim techniques class last night for 1 hour.<br><br>
Today: swimming while the info from last night's class are still fairly fresh in my mind. This class is great, but makes realize how far I still need to go. Wonder when I'll have that "AHA" moment when it all clicks. <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><br><br>
Happy hump day all!

Upper body and back day with the weights followed by hour plus of hockey. No goals but could have picked up about 4 penalties. Great skate that finished 9-9. Have a great day.

Feeling frustrated today. Did a 30 min easy run yesterday just to keep the legs loose for the weekend's half mary, but my back is still so tight I could tell my posture was funky. Today my back is feeling worse. If I sit for more than a few minutes at a time, I get up and can't straighten all the way. ARGH!<br><br>
Supposed to do an hour easy spin, but think I'll go to the pool instead. I sure hope this clears up by Sat.

Dreary morning here north of Boston. Rain at my house in Massachusetts, snow up by work in New Hampster.<br><br>
Alaska Mike: Dude, that was a serious, serious, seriously AWESOME workout for you yesterday. To pull sub-6's at the end is extremely impressive. You are going to ROCK Boston. 2:45 dog! Hold that confidence near and dear.<br><br>
Me...<br><br>
5 mile tempo run early this morning. Followed by...<br><br>
41 lap swim:<br>
o WU - bunch o' laps<br>
o 10 x 100 yards<br>
Second per lap on avg slower per lap. Just didn't have it. Was also forced to the splash and stretch lane, so that threw me off a bit, but seriously didn't have the top end today. But getting through this was easier. Overall avg per lap was :49 secs. Faster were :47, slower at a pathetic :51. Good news it that the early intervals had more consistent first and second laps only a second a part, where usually my second is 3 seconds slower.<br><br>
Have a GREAT day, Tri-peeps!

Yesterday I had my run in the morning, and then last night I did TI drills. I think it's going to help alot.<br>
This morning I got in some chest and tris, and tonight I will see if I can put those TI drills to good use.

Wed runs are starting to be something to look forward to.<br><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
4.83 miles in an hour or so...<br>
weights later this afternoon.<br><br>
I think one of the reasons I was starting to get hum drum about running was that I wasn't ever doing anything different. So....having a plan and doing the plan..... yeah, that's a good idea.

So today we celebrate the first ultra? <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I have to start with yesterday's workout, since it was late, as late as the daylight would allow.. 25mi bike ride with a new group. Actually, it's only my second group ride ever, and it was pretty cool. They told me the group would make me much stronger and they were right, I pushed myself much harder, especially since it was the first time with them and I didn't want to embarass myself. Very windy and cold but time passed faster than when being alone.<br><br>
Heidi, don't worry, I think it happens to everybody, I also keep moving all over the place on the ball.

I'm home a day early from my Cheltenham jaunt as they cancelled today's racing because of high winds being potentially dangerous. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
this is very disappointing, and I cannot benefit from the rescheduling of the races to later in the week because of work comitments. And I backed no winners yesterday! in 6 races I found 4 seconds and a fourth but no winner.<br><br>
so I'm home. will go to the pool this pm to do a swim. not a happy chappy though.
