Awesome!!  Nothing feels worse than the waking up, driving to Masters, and the first 400 yards of an early morning swim, but NOTHING feels better once you're done.  Love early morning swims.



*********************************


I should have said 2 Sundays in a row but you guessed that, right? It’s not that early tbh as it starts at 8:30 (which is early for a Sunday I guess)...
I must say I really enjoy that. When I swim on my own, I lose the will to live after 2 laps, it’s so boring... but on Sundays with that group, I swim for an hour and a half without noticing it.

Well done to your daughter on her PB by the way. Those time seem insane to me. 100 yards in under 26 seconds??

26 seconds is the time it takes me for one length (25m, a bit more than 25 y but still....)

Unfortunately, its stupid oclock to do any training, not just Ironman. I used to do most of my training (back when I was actually fit) between finishing work and dinner. But now, with a wife who also works a full time job, and a young family that just doesn't happen. By the time we have some family time, dinner, bath, bed etc I wouldn't be starting a workout till 8... and then dinner after that. Just no going to happen. And no shower at work for lunchtime workouts, I can go to the pool for some laps, but when you add the drive, time to change etc. it's only 15 min left for swimming. Barely seems worth it.

So, for now, it's mornings or nothing.

1. do all my prescribed physio therapy work.
2. 7 workouts, before 7am.


Unfortunately, 2 fails for me. But got close.

Did most of my physio work (the ankle feels good, but could have been better)
Had 5 workouts before 7am, which is a good step, but I need to keep backing it up until it's a habit.

I'm going to be travelling for work a bit this week, which will mess with any plans. So goals for this week:

1. Run at least 1 time when travelling
2. Get over 4 hours total for the week

Hope everybody else had a good week

True, you have to find the time where you can. I have only one child, who takes care of himself nowadays (he’s 15) so I can train earlier. I would rather train at 8 pm (and I do, I have a swim class at 8 on Mondays) than 6 am though, and when training for an ironman I guess you don’t choose, it’s both !

I did pretty well this week. I managed four runs of varying length, no booze, and kept pretty grain free, which means I slept well all week. For once, I’m going home from this conference not exhausted.

 

Nice one! We have friends in the valley and it is beautiful there. I finally did my arm workout. Will post tomorrow workout plans for next week so I actually get some exercise done!

Hope everyone else is having a good week?




Way to get it done!

@Nicole - might be joining you guys at Canton in the Spring as my daughter's team won't be doing their 5:30 AM thing in Towson anymore and she might want to continue practicing.  I'll need my own lane. 




That would be awesome! We love having new people join us
I can't guarantee you your own lane, but we will see what we can do! Sometimes we split a lane while others circle swim. It's "member-driven," so if she has workouts in mind that she wants to do, tell her to definitely bring them along! Sometimes we go in and someone has a workout ready, and sometimes we just figure it out on the fly.

I think it's 26 seconds for a 50, not 100. Still hella fast though!

I was sick last week (still am tbh), so had some very lazy days. Therefore I definitely did not hit all my goals.

Yoga 3x
Do some kind of activity every day
Get at least one two-a-day in

You know what goal I did hit though? YOGA 3X!! Freaking finally. And I'm definitely feeling the difference, although my neck/shoulders/back are still definitely tight.

My goals are the same this week, since I'm "better," albeit still feel like crap. Did Sprint this morning, and hope to do some yoga this evening.

Up early for masters, wherein I had the joy of an unexpected 1500m swim for time. Coach wants to establish baseline at the beginning of training. It went okay, but I wasn’t expecting so do such a long, continuous swim. Followed that up with 45’ of physical therapy in my knee, which I don’t think is helping at all anymore. I am getting stronger, but my range of motion is still crap. Dr ordered an MRI on 2/14, but I haven’t heard anything about scheduling. Insurance approval is slow!

Feeling a bit better this week too; aiming for 2 x yoga, 2 x arms and 2 x healthy meals on Tuesday to Thursday. Since I've been off the bike I've been getting take out coffee and pastries each morning on the way from the bus stop. Going back to my pb bagel and yogurt, granola and banana for lunch to help wind things in a bit whilst i can hardly exercise. 

Going to be tough to commit to this so wish me luck!!!

What are other people's plans for the week?

Next recipe for you: https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/feb/19/david-athertons-recipe-for-cyclists-malt-loaf

 

Malt loaf is well known to cyclists as a perfect high-carb, low-fat snack. It’s a mystery to me that people love plums, but deride prunes. They are fantastic and shine in this recipe. The sugar and dried fruit provide a speedy dose of energy, but you also get slow-release carbohydrates from the sweet potato that are perfect for endurance. This loaf works just as well at home – toasted, buttered and partnered with a cup of tea.

Makes one 20cm loaf

150g prunes
100g sweet potato
150g malt extract
100ml prune juice
50g soft brown sugar
50g dark musc
ovado sugar
50g porridge oats
70g strong white bread flour
140g plain flour
¼ tsp salt
1½ tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
Maple syrup to brush on top once cooked

Line a 20cm loaf tin with baking paper.

Heat the oven to 180C (160C fan)/350F/gas mark 4.

Chop the prunes into quarters and set aside. Grate the sweet potato finely and set aside.

In a saucepan, gently heat the malt extract, prune juice and sugar until dissolved.

Whiz the oats to a powder in a blender, then combine in a mixing bowl with the flour, salt and baking powder.

Pour in the sweet mixture and mix, then beat in the eggs. Finally, add the dried fruit and sweet potato and mix together well.

Transfer to the loaf tin and bake for one hour.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the tin before turning out on to a wire rack and brushing with maple syrup.

This is a sticky loaf, so my tip is to slice it with a sharp breadknife once cool.

Hi ???? my roommate just taught me how to get emojis when typing anything on my computer ?? I wanted to share with y'all because I always want to use them here but didn't know how to get them.

BTW, if you're curious, you hold down the windows button and the colon button. You're welcome ?? also, sorry (not sorry) for the mass emojis you will soon experience. I will try to restrain myself...
?????????????????????????????

Edit: Apparently these emojis only show up as question marks. I'm so disappointed
