Longest day of the year today BT!  

6:45am:  5X5 strong lift + core with daughters and hubby

8:30am:  40 minute run with 4X2:00 high zone 3/4 effort with 3:00 recovery jog.  Felt pretty darn good even after my long hike yesterday.

Later:  6 X 300m swim then lounging at the pool for the rest of the day

Karen,  I don't know that I could have done your 'taper' swim yesterday! Holy cow!

Kelly, happy belated yesterday!Have a great Wednesday everyone! Looks like a few of you are racing this weekend! Exciting!

Of course I get a telescope just days before the longest day of the year . . . 

5:40 - track workout, with 6 x 600m being the main set. Each rep was 400 at 10k goal pace, 200 all out, with 2' recovery.

Have a great day and summer, BT!

23mile ride this morning in the crazy misty and foggy weather. The moisture on my sunglasses made for a interesting ride with very poor visibility.

Rest day. My knee is felling much better today, too. I'll be switching up my training schedule a bit in order to not have four days of leg workouts in a row.

50 mile ride starting at 5:00am...felt strong and did a negative split. This is part of my build-up for my Century end of July. I'm focusing on my nutrition for these longer efforts. I tried nothing but Tailwind today...although I felt I had energy during most of the ride, my stomach felt completely empty towards the end. I think I might need to add some solids when I go longer than 3 hours / 2000 cal burned. Today's ride was 2h 50min. Tomorrow will be a recovery jog to loosen up the lactic acid in my legs.

Snuck out for 30 min of kickboxing during lunch.

And I just ate two cookies

I'm not sure either--it sure didn't feel like a taper workout! Slept well last night.

1:20 trainer ride with 3 X 9 minute pickups at race effort. Then brought Rover in for some pre-race maintenance (basically, replacing everything on him that has corroded due to humidity and sweat in Saigon).

Happy solstice!! This is my favorite day of the year.

6 mile run tonight on a trail I haven't been on in a while because they were doing construction. To my delight, they were installing one of those community water playscape things for the kids to cool off in, and yes, I indulged

Unintentional day off yesterday due to chafing. Can't believe I forgot the importance of BODY GLIDE.

Afternoon swim - 950 yards
Evening run - 20 minutes, first time averaging under 12 min/mile

Feels good to be back at it.

Kim - thanks for still being here and keeping the threads going.
