The following equipment is nearing replacement:
  • Stretching
  • 20m
Dawn Patrol rained out this morning!  Booooo!  Decided to finish cleaning the garage from last month!  And do some stretching out there.   Did more cleaning than stretching.  Hoping to ride after that's ever worked!!!  But one can hope!  Otherwise it will be an unscheduled day off - lord knows I could use it and ride dawn patrol tomorrow. 

  • 39m 38s
  • 3.89 miles
  • 10m 11s /Mi
Did a nice slow pace today.  Achilles felt good and calves felt good!!!!I felt like I could have kept going but I wanted to stretch out on the last deck that overlooked the river.

  • 49m 44s
  • 2640.00 yards
  • 01m 53s /100 yards
  • Massage
  • 1h 30m

deep tissue - very painful but afterwards I felt like a noodle!

Did 1.5 mile around Walden.  Felt great! Then promptly fell asleep at 8PM!!!!  See....I am a lightweight...Hahahahaha.  I used to stay up all night dancing and partying!  Yeah well not anymore!

So the weekend was a bust training-wise.  Today I WILL get right back on the plan and go swim later today.   

OMG!  I am such a light weight!!!  I went to a wedding last night, had one marguerita, stayed up til midnight and today I feel hungover!!!!  Unless I start feeling better by 10AM, I will not be driving 2 hours to the next race venue and riding 40 miles and rollerblading (resting those calves) 6 miles.    So Plan B is to go the the Pond and swim 2 miles!  But I must finish my coffee first!
Looks like I opted for Plan C - spending the day in bed, napping and watching movies!  Remind me NOT to drink again.   My last marguerita was on New Years Eve!!!
Rest day!!!  Maybe I'll do a little core (its been awhile!)  and some stretching later.  Going to Waterville Valley tomorrow to check out the next race venue.  Do a little swim/bike/rollerblade...gonna rest those calves/achille tendons
  • 41m
  • 1760.00 yards
  • 02m 20s /100 yards

swam a little slower today coz i was with someone else

Happy to report Walden Pond is all clear of any angry fishermen!  Hahaha!  I am ready to increase the mileage to perhaps 1.5 miles next time.  Maybe over the weekend!

OK... I got off my lazy ass and did the race report!

1 mile at 8:50
0.4 mile as 5 intervals of 1 min at all out pace w/1 min rests in between
c/d: 1 mile at 12 min/mile then walked last 0.25 mile for a total of 3 miles

felt good to run.....but both archilles started to ache and I could feel an ache deep in the muscle of the right calf.....UGH! i just want to run!  Its been awhile since I have been in the gym...I think its time to go back and start doing the exercises that PT had given me last year.  Otherwise I may not make the olympic distance next month.    I had chosen a run heavy plan to follow but I think I will substitute the bike for the run and just back off on the run.
