1000 yard TT ...... 16:50!! Another new PR!! 1:41/100 average. That would have been unheard of for me last year!

Really focused on getting my right arm to "break" when it starts the pull with that whole EVF approach. I seem to be pretty good with my left as it comes naturally, but the right arm really struggles for some reason. So I focused on that with the drills. All of the 100's in between the drills were comfortably in the 1:3X range so I decided to go for a 500 yard pushed effort for the rest of the workout. Then after posting a 1:32 first 100 I decdied to f-ck it and go for another 1,000 yard TT run. What do you know??!! Another new PR!!

Really putting the "doing less to do more" into play considering how little I've swam compared to last year and how much more improvement I've made!!

Swim this morning, woking late all week for project deadline Friday.

Taking the day off from excercise.  Really hard to do it as I had my running stuff set up and alarm went off at 5:30.  But my neck is still bothering me, my ear is still bothering me and I have this sore on my tongue that makes it tough to swallow and talk.  Not to mention I am supposed to be taking it super easy as my "off season" for the next two weeks (3 total after the marathon).

Recovery

2 of the 2k loops at x-country practice with Brendan. He ran a negative split with the 2nd loop because he was chatting non stop about Super Paper Mario which I let him start a week or so ago.

Left side of my neck is bothering me almost like a pulled muscle.  Has been for a few days but not sure what caused it.  Also, little bit if a cold with swollen glands and such.

General Aerobic

Out and back to Crest Rd. sign on 216. Cool, slightly windy, sunny out. Felt good to run. Not too tired, just the right distance. A little bit sluggish towards the end. But amazingly felt pretty good during the run! Obviously not fully recovered, but a lot further than I would have expected.

House work and cleaning day.  Lots to do to get it back up to speed - the place is a mess.

Will try to get a run in later.

Rest day from excercise again.  Feeling almost recovered.  Will try a decent run this weekend to get a feel for exactly where I am.

Up at 5 to make Mir her birthday breakfast.  Turned out nice.  Got the kitchen straightened up, boys dressed, fed and out the door on time and took them to school.  She's probably going out with her Aunt for lunch and then we might go to dinner.  Need to go pick up her a cake from the French bakery near the office.

X-Country practice.

Brendan's throat is bothering him so we did the mile time trial and went home.

Site visit to PA as usual (only one or two to go on this phase).  Picked up kids from school.  X-Country practice tonight unless it starts pouring.

Mir's birthday tomorrow.  Up early to make her breakfast and take the kids to school.
