2700yds in the pool today. Was supposed to be 3200yds, but my leg was cramping, so I bailed on the last 500 interval. Overall, felt really good. The gym was a ghost town this morning, but for some reason the kids swim team was still practicing. No school, but someone still thought it appropriate for them to gather at the pool.

My daughter's swim team was still scheduled to practice today at my gym, until the Governor shut down all bars, restaurants, theaters, and gyms.  Our swim coach sent out a really nice email about it about trying to keep some sort of normalcy during this crisis by keeping swim practice going.

It's been under a day and my wife and daughter are driving me crazy already.

Come train next door in Winter Garden/Clermont!
Come run with the gators! Here's one of too many to count from my run yesterday. I'd guess he was about 9-10' long.

I still don't get the toilet paper thing... or why bananas, milk, & eggs, and really oddly, plastic wrap were completely ransacked at my supermarket.

If peeps need at home workouts I can recommend: Karen Hauer - YouTube She is on the UK equivalent of Dancing with the Stars. 

 

The Guardian also did a whole list:  https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2020/mar/15/from-yoga-to-crossfit-the-10-best-online-home-workouts

Our gyms have shut down, so no swimming. I’m still working but it’s getting interesting. I get to hotels and finding food has become a scavenger hunt. Now hotels are starting to close as well... really curious where we will be put up. My job won’t stop, I still will be traveling, so the logistics will be interesting to watch.

Day 3 of the lockdown with the family.    They're both doing the Insanity workout video series, which is, well, insane.  LOL

Got in a really good trainer ride yesterday, 10 x 2' @ 105% with 1' RBI @ 55-60%.  Sneaky tough as you don't get full recovery with the higher efforts  on recovery.

We're 95% sure of cance.ling our April Florida trip - I've moved my lodging booking to June and will cancel the flights once we get a little closer (much easier to rebook the condo vs. the flights, and they're Southwest so you can full refund/voucher on everything up until 10 minutes before you fly anyway).

Also, with USA Cycling cancelling everything at least through the end of April AND not having access to a pool, or a treadmill, or my normal weight training equipment, or the yoga studio, I've made a bunch of modifications to my training plan as I don't have to race until at least May.  Our gym has given us access to all of the Les Mills online videos so there's plenty to do.

We also went to the local grocery store when they opened at 6 AM this morning...zero meat, but plenty of most other things.  We needed to get stuff for my MIL who is self-quarantine-ing and only eats like three things.  So we had a cart full of soup and yogurt.  And Ben & Jerry's ice cream, in case it REALLY goes south. 

Hope everyone is doing OK out there.  Interesting times.

Managed my 1.5 miles on my trainer; leg didn't hurt too much until about 7-8 minutes in. Arm workout later and leg rehab too. 

 

How everyone else getting on?

90' on the trainer--another steady state ride of 70% FTP. I was reading and totally didn't hit my warmup intervals (3x30" to loosen the legs up), my cool down interval, or even the end of the ride. Oops!!

We are in for a while now, after voting, running to work to pick up a few things, and then hitting the grocery store yesterday. Already a little stir crazy here. Sharing my home office with my wife. I work from home a lot, but she is always at the office. I've never realized just how freaking loud she is!! Typing! email chimes!! eating chips!!!! Noise canceling headphones will save us! :P

Official lake temp is 47F here. After all the pools in the area closed (lucky to have several options), our swim coach checked out the local lake. Still a little chilly for my blood, even if I wore my wetsuit and peed in it! :D

But...the dog is loving this!

As Mike said, Maryland is essentially shut down. I have been working from home since Monday, and as of today so is my roommate. Luckily we get along really well so I think it should be okay.

Went on a 3 mile run this morning. Going to run every morning to get some time outside and get my legs moving, and then do yoga once or twice throughout the day, as well as my PT. My shoulder is feeling amazingly better after just one week or so of PT, so I'm really excited to get back in the pool once it opens. Until then, winging it like everyone else :-/

Hi Guys,

Wow, hasn't the world changed in the last 2 weeks.

Fortunately my latest injury seemed to fizzle out quickly. So I now feel injury free, and was able to run my Half Marathon on the weekend (Before everything got canceled) It was hot and sunny, had a massive hill at the half way point and really kicked my . To be fair, over the last 6-8 weeks since I hurt my ankle I have not trained nearly enough, and ate badly and put on weight, so I deserved to have my kicked. But it was a bit of a wake up call to get myself back into gear.

On Monday our government joined most of the world in shutting everything down. From a training point of view that means my last race of summer (waterfront half marathon) is rescheduled for Aug-Sept sometime (unless things stay crazy) rather than 3 weeks away. Depending on when that race is on, will decide which, if any of the other 2 HM's I had penciled in I still do

Work wise, international travel is now close to impossible here, I had a 1-2 day job in Australia that was supposed to be this week, now that would take 14 days isolation getting into Aus, and then again coming back to NZ. And our local sites have gone into semi lock down, with only 'business critical' visitors allowed onsite. The work we had scheduled needs to be done at some point, but doesn't meet that threshold, so all my upcoming travel has been postponed. We still have some big projects on the go, but not sure what the future holds for now.

Hopefully the mass hysteria we are all experiencing passes soon and life can continue, but I expect the spin bike to get a hammering over the next couple of weeks-months.

We're 51 weeks till IronmanNZ 2021. So about 30 weeks till getting back into the specific training plan. So for now it's a big focus on my diet, to drop some weight, while keeping training at a reasonable level.

Train hard and stay safe guys.

Vuk Congratulations on your first Tri. Great to hear you enjoyed it and have more lined up.

Gretchen Some good trainer binge watching material is 'drive to survive' on Netflix. It's about formula 1 (Yes I am a motor sport fan, so would watch almost anything with fast cars) But Mrs Bullfrog is very much not into race cars but got very into the show. So much so she wanted to watch the Australian GP last weekend before it was axed.

A rough 90' on the trainer today. Was supposed to be 5x8'@105%FTP with 5' recovery between intervals. First two were fine. Third was rough. Fourth and fifth felt like the wheels came off and I couldn't find the lug nuts. Not sure what went wrong today, but I just wasn't feeling it at all. Done though, and for that I'm happy.

Rain and thunderstorms all day here today--not doing much for my general mood about life.

5k run in under 32 minutes (including a couple of stops along the way for the dog to to her business). Far from my PB but the best since my foot started playing up 18 months ago.
Hope everyone is keeping well

Hey, you asked for it. 

That's a brutal workout - 8' @ 105% is roughly the output level of an FTP test.  It's trying to get your body to adapt to repeating those efforts AFTER you've depleted your glycogen/sugar stores by burning fat at higher effort levels.  You're not used to it, so you crash spectacularly towards the end.  Considering you haven't done much of that effort level lately I'm surprised your coach would hammer you with that.

My day was significantly easier, 75' total with 3 x 15' @ 80% while watch the MD governor's press conference today and some of Stage 3 of Paris-Nice.

Hi everyone, Sounds like a lot of adjustments going on! I was awol for about a month with a nasty respiratory infection/ Cough. I isolated at home for three weeks and tried not to think about not working out. This week all of a sudden I could breathe again- so I have two short bike rides and ran about a half a mile with walking got to about a mile and a half. My lungs are struggling a bit- not sure if it's the time off or they just need a little more healing. But it feels doable to work out really easy which it was not a week ago.

My whole family is at home now for the foreseeable future. The project to convert the corner of our basement into a little gym a year and a half ago is really looking good now.

20 minutes on the trainer and some core and weight lifting today.

My June and August races are still on the calendar for now.

Hey all! Got in two short runs yesterday (to and from PT, a little over a mile each), and my therapist crushed my shoulders (in the best way).

It's supposed to be beautiful here again today so I'm going to go for a run at lunchtime. Doing a boot camp in the park tomorrow. We will have a shared workout and just spread out and do it together.
