Run #1
  • 40m 53s
  • 4.03 miles
  • 10m 08s /Mi

At about 2.5 miles into the run, my Garmin said the battery was low. So I made it a four mile loop and ran home to get my stopwatch, just in case the watch dies, I'd at least know what time it was and how long I ran for. So I worwe both watches on my wrists and reset the Garmin when I headed back out the door.

At 35 minutes, insert 3x5 min @ z4 on 1 minute jogs.

When I started this run it actually felt pretty cool out but as I warmed up and the sun came up it started to get very humid. Like I said I have to start doing , I ran my first mile nice and slow to warm up (about a 10:00 pace). I ran a completely different route than usual and ended up running the last 1.5 miles on the sod farm and in the woods behind my house. I have to start doing that more often. It's so peaceful and relaxing. Also I get to run with all of the deer.

Swim
  • 1h 11m 06s
  • 3500.00 yards
  • 02m 02s /100 yards

Swim at Wildwood Lake. The best kept secret on LI. This is a beautiful place to swim... absolutely perfect in every way.

Except... my sighting was awful. I'm usually about a 1:50/100yd swimmer, even in ows races (usually about 38:00 for a HIM). But my sighting this morning was terrible. I was all over the lake and the truth is, I probably ended up swimming closer to 3900 yards, but whatever. I'm going to try not to freak out about this. At least in races, there are buoys to sight off of. The lake is beautiful, but every time I looked up, it all looked the same.

In the past I was able to stay closer to Bobby and sight off of him, but he is way too fast now for that.

So, May 2011 has been my highest volume month in my triathlon life...  here's the graph:

 

Bike #1
  • 18m 30s
  • 5.39 miles
  • 17.48 Mi/hr

Warm up on the hills north of 25a. Spun 2 miles (not counted to the hills and went west then south to 25 a.

Bike #2
  • 1h 12m 49s
  • 25.00 miles
  • 20.60 Mi/hr

TT about 1:30 over my pr for a 25 mile tt. Went all out.

Bike #3
  • 40m 10s
  • 12.06 miles
  • 18.01 Mi/hr

easy 12 mile loop to home.

I've been religiously listening to the Endurance Nation podcast over the last few months and have adopted some of their training philosophies over that time.  One of the concepts they often talk about is when life limits your volume, you must up the intensity.  Life certainly limited my volume this weekend, but this was probably the most intense 2+ hours I have spent on a bicycle in a long time.
