6am Back of farm route plus tacked on the end of the home 5k route.

Absolutely perfect morning for a run. We have been having a stretch of superb weather and I am just lovin' it! This morning was temps in the upper 40's and bright sunshine. Everything is so spring green and beautiful. Nice relaxed pace on the run and I feel great!

As usual, it's nice to get my workout done 1st thing in the morning.  :)  :)  :)

I've got to work on my inspires this weekend!  The last couple of days have just been so hectic.  Just enough time to update my blog and off I go again.  :)  :)  :)

Up at 4am, a little hunting, a lot of work, then a dinner meeting.  Home after 10pm.  Long day!

Lunchtime run. Gorgeous day. I was getting antsy. I really NEEDED to run.

  • 52m
  • 2000.00 yards
  • 02m 36s /100 yards

7am lap swim. Yes, it's a shocker. I made it to the pool.
Warm up: 100y breaststroke, 100y free.
500y free (2:13, 2:23, 2:19, 2:23, 2:22 = 11:40) Felt discumbobulated.
100y breast.
500y free (2:18, 2:21, 2:18, 2:19, 2:18 = 11:34) Felt MUCH better this set. Nice and relaxed and smooth.
100y breast.
500y free (2:17, 2:20, 2:21, 2:25, 2:24 = 11:47) Getting very tired and slooooooooower.
100y breast.
My arms are very tired now especially my triceps. That's what happens when one is a slug and doesn't swim for a couple weeks.

Tomorrow will most likely be a wash as far as a workout goes (unless I sneak something in at lunch).  So I did two workouts today!  :) 

Continued slugdom.  Thought once again about getting up and going swimming.  BUT it felt so GOOD to sleep in until 6am.  First time in over a week and a half.  Took my running clothes/shoes to try and sneak in a run at lunch.  Got busy and that didn't happen.  Now I'm home and we are on round 3 or 4 of severe thunderstorms rolling through the area.  Will I ever workout again?  LOL!

Hunted the morning.  QUIET morning.  I did have a pair of wood ducks hanging around me for quite awhile.  I still think its funny to see a duck sitting in a tree.

Mowed grass all afternoon.  I mow about 4-5 acres of grass on the farm so mowing is a 4+ hour job.  Once again, I had thought I might make it to swim in the afternoon, but ran out of time.

  • 58m 31s
  • 15.18 miles
  • 15.56 Mi/hr

Time includes short run out of transition with my bike. Bike course the same as run course except it was 5 laps around the lake.

  • 26m 52s
  • 3.00 miles
  • 08m 58s /Mi

Course was one lap around Hinckley Lake.

Time is somewhat of a guess. The race is manually timed and only records overall time. When I finally remembered to hit the lap button on my watch, it read 27:02. I figured that I had been in transition around 10 seconds when the light bulb went on.

Race time - 1:26:29.   Not too many women there this time.  The duathlon always has more participants than the biathlon, but I think last year the biathlon had 18 women.  This year only 10.  Good for me because I got 3rd overall female.  :)  :)  Last year the bi had 55 total participants.  This year only 40.  Maybe because the date got switched and people already had plans????  The weather was absolutely perfect for a race!!!  It just doesn't get any better.

Best part was I took 5 minutes exactly off my time from last year!  I was a little worried since I have hardly biked at all this year.  I pushed the bike as hard as I could.  Max speed on the big down hill was 34.5 mph.  Yippee!!!  Wish the hill was longer though.

And the second best thing was that I won a free duathlon registration in the door prize raffle after the race!  :)   :)  Now I have something to work for.  No way could I have run after the bike today.  Of course the plan was to not hold back at all because I knew I was finished at the end of the bike leg.

Pretty uneventful morning hunt.  Napped some in the afternoon.  Then went to a spaghetti dinner to benefit the local animal shelter.  Gosh I've been a slug as far as workouts go this week.  Need to do better next week.
