Taking a rest day today, yesterday my left calf was really sore and I ran anyways, and it was even more sore in the evening.  Not quite sure what caused it, but with a 50 mile bike coming up on Saturday, I'm hoping a day off will heal it up.  Not sure about tomorrow, still thinking about a swim, or a run....

Did some speedwork today, just a little bit but it felt good (and challenging). 1 mile warm up, 3 x 1/4 mile fast w/ 1/4 mile jogging recovery, 1/2 mile cool down home. The three 1/4 sprint paces were 9:07, 9:14, 9:25. Hoping to keep this up once a week and increase by one each week to build strength and speed.

Almost reset the alarm, but finally got out of bed. Glad I did, good run! My shoulders are feeling the swim yesterday, I won't go tomorrow, but might try again on Friday. Hoping to bike after school, I wanted to yesterday but there was a severe storm warning out, didn't want to risk getting caught in a hail storm!! And of course we got nuthin'...

Statewide testing for the next 3 days... which means no teaching for me, but monitoring hordes of kids watching a movie in the cafeteria for 45 minutes at a time.  UGH!

Belton HS Pool
First swim in 5 months.... and the shoulder STILL hurts. I can kind of adjust my stroke so that it is manageable, but it is definitely not better. I may give it a few weeks of swimming and see if it gets any better, if not it will definitely be time to see the doc. I wore my zoomers for the first 800 yds to help ease some stress off my shoulders, and then went without for the last 200. Breast stroke doesn't hurt, backstroke does. And surprisingly I felt pretty good in the water, I wasn't dying! Since I had no idea how fast or slow I would be, I opted for the warm pool away from the serious swimmers. Didn't feel TOO warm since I was taking it so easy.
