REST DAY...  I had planned on making up a couple of workouts I missed this week, but I either ate something bad or picked up a stomach virus, just not feeling well, slept like crap last night.  I keep thinking I should have just gotten up and thrown up, I probably would have felt better!  Today is my daughter's 29th b'day, so I'm watching the boys tonight so she can go out with her girlfriends...

Planned to do about 30 today... checked the weather, particularly the wind before I headed out, S 14, not insignificant but not too awful... checked it again on my phone after 5 miles and it was 19! And since all my rides go to the North and then South to come back home, the thought of battling 19-20 mph winds for 15 miles did not thrill me... so did half the distance. I'm such a weenie. If I wasn't solo I would have sucked it up....

Goal was to run the whole thing no matter how slow.... managed to make it through 3 miles without walking, then the HR was high again, I WAS running slow, and started feeling a bit lightheaded at 4 miles. Got it done, that's about all I can say. Surely it will eventually get better????

A slog for sure.... at least it was kind of cool and overcast. Tried to keep HR down, didn't work so much. Less walking today. Workout #1 done!

WU: 400 and stretch
100 lateral kick w/ fins, rest :15
200 1-arm w/ fins, rest :15
4 x 200 on 4:00 (3:23, 3:24, 3:28, 3:32)
8 x 50 on 1:00
CD: 200
I do sooo much better early in the morning... legs wanted to cramp up, then feet, but I held them off... this was supposed to be 2800, but no way was that gonna happen... the 200's got slower and slower, so opted to switch to 50's and cut it short. Workout #2 DONE!

Well, it appears the weather may have something to do with my training day today... woke up 10 minutes before the alarm to hear thunder and lightning, so went ahead and turned it off and slept another hour or so.  Looking at the radar, there is a BIG band of thunderstorms passing by, so I don't think I'll chance the pool until that is over for sure, so my training day which should have been done by noon, will now probably take most of the day!  At least the temps are supposed to be a little cooler, only 89 as a high.

Strange ride.... started out sunny and pretty warm, and about 10 miles in it got real cloudy and dark and I felt the temperature drop. I could see rain way off in the distance, but checked the radar and it looked like I would be okay to finish my ride. I did run into some rain for about 2 miles and then I was out of it again. Wind started from the south and ended up from the North which was to my benefit for once! I'm feeling more secure on the Heds the more I ride them.

So I was a good girl and went to bed early and set my alarm to get up to swim... and I DID get up and was all ready to go.  Today was the day the roofers were supposed to show up and I didn't want to leave until they got to the house and they no showed.  Hubby called and now they are coming the end of the week... whatever!  So looks like I will have to try and make it up tomorrow, but I also have a bike and run scheduled too, gonna be a full morning!

Hot, humid, sweaty... this was an effort in trying to keep the HR under control... first 2 miles were pretty good, but the second half I had to start run/walk, trying to keep the HR down. Walking it would go down, and then once I started running it would go even higher than before until even walking it wasn't coming down much... ugh... I'm really going to have to make the effort to get up early and run in the dark, at least psychologically it should feel better....
