Continued with cornice work at Bobby' the front and back of the main section done.  Legs were sore after spending the entire day 40ft up on a walk plank, then Marianne I went to church for a "learn to dance" party.  My back, legs and feet were screaming after 3.5 hrs of waltz, foxtrot, rhumba and swing.  Ouch.

Easy ride to stretch out the legs. Forgot to hit record on HRM.

Watson Rd. Loop
Z2/Z3 on two hills
I'm thrilled with the pace, but with the recent change in zones, RPE is much higher than I would prefer. I guess that's to be expected....I'm going to train on the very low end of my zones for a while until I adjust. A little discomfort in my left hip flexor - I played with my stride a little and it seemed to feel better when I lifted my knees a little.

WU: 2x100
30 min of mostly 25 drill/25 swim focusing on relaxed leading hand, compact recovery and high elbow.
6x100 (1:33,1:36,4@1:34)
6x50 (46,43,42,41,39,38)
I just had the itch to swim fast on the 50s - ended up having to give it everything I had to build the whole set. Leading arm/hand and pull felt great. Recovery still gets out of control.
CD: 5 min. drills

Tough getting on the trainer after riding outside for over a week.

Z2 run.
Kind of weird running immediately after a swim - I think this was the first time I ever did that. HR was 170 going into the wind, 162 fair wind. No discomfort in the hip flexors.

  • 50m
  • 1500.00 yards

WU: 100, 200
Remainder of practice was switches focusing on tight recovery, relaxed/deeper leading arm and high elbow.
5x50 swim golf
Strokes + time = score
29+46=75 mod hard
28+45=73 mod/hard to hard
30+44=74 mod hard
29+47=76 mod
30+46=76 mod
Not really sure what I learned from this other than my score really didn't ballon when I eased off on the last two. Lowest score was done focusing on pull and hip rotation initiating the stroke.

Flexibility is still a limiting factor in the aero position.

  • 37m 10s
  • 4.25 miles
  • 08m 45s /Mi

I would much rather have been doing the 2 hr. run I was supposed to, but I pulled back to figure out what's going on with my hip flexors. My left side became noticable about 2 miles into it, but not bad.

Strange things going on with HR vs. PRE in my last two workouts.  On my ride Friday I couldn't get my HR up, but it was so windy, I wasn't able to make a decent assesment of pace.  Today on my run, I purposly took it easy, barely pushed into Z2 on a couple hills and had one of my best paces ever on the Watson Rd. loop.  Avg HR for the whole run was 4 beats under my new Z2.  I hope this is fitness gain and not some short term anomaly.
