Windy! Whoah. I had planned on doing this workout early this morning at 0500, but it was raining pretty steady so I went back to bed. It was nice not having to ride the trainer or run in the rain, but the wind was tough. Tried to keep the effort up and keep steady upper Z2/lower Z3 with some higher intervals into the wind and on hills.

Run

Took about a half mile for my legs to adjust after pushing the bike hard at the end of the first ride but felt good after that. Both runs were mid to high Z3 and ended in Z4 on the second run.

Off for the next couple days.  Headed down to Bobby's with the boat this afternoon, painting decoys, and working on the house tonight and all day tomorrow.  Hopefully, I can muster up enough motivation to get one last brick in on Sunday.

Why the heck does my avatar keep changing back to that fat guy with the bike?!  Ahhhh!

C'ville hills. I haven't run through town and back in quite a while. I sprinted the hills and cruised in between. HR hit 187 on the 3rd hill - felt like my lungs were going to burst! Strange weather this morning. It was cool, but humid. I worked up a pretty good sweat and was wearing short sleeves, but I could see my breath like it was sub-freezing out. Weird.

Easy leisurely ride with Marianne to just enjoy the weather. The smell of the freshly cut corn and bean fields was incredible - it always reminds me of riding in the combines and playing in the corn and beans in the back of the trucks on my grandparent's farm when I was a kid.

WU: 300
Drills:

MS: 12x100 at T+3" (1:43)on 20" rest

1:35,39,40,42,39,40,38,42,41,39,40,40

CD: 100

Once again, I can't dial in the T+3" for a pacing focus workout. My times were all over the place, but this was probably the lowest PE for times around 1:40 ever for me.

Swim at lunch and maybe a ride this evening.

Trainer.
10' warm up
3x5' in biggest gear I could hold at 85+ cadence.

Run
  • 54m 35s
  • 6.30 miles
  • 08m 40s /Mi

Run focused brick per coach Davis. Did 3x5' 5k race pace (Z4) intervals. With the cool temps it was really tough to get my HR up. I barely touched Z4 at the end of the first two then had an uphill stretch on the 3rd which got me into mid-Z4. Another perfect running morning. Lots of geese showed up last night!

I can't ever be allowed to buy Honey Sesame Cashews or Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans from TJs ever again.  I have absolutely no willpower to stop once I get started on them.

Run

  • 3.50 miles

Ran to the high school and back. Mostly Z1.

Still didn't feel quite 100% when the alarm went off this morning, but I felt like I had to do something to keep the legs moving.  Got an easy, short run in which felt good.   If I can get to bed at a decent hour tonight, I might try to get that brick in tomorrow morning.

Forgot to put my swimming bag in the truck this morning so no swim today.
