hung in with runnergirl and watergirl for first 9 1/2 miles and then gave up :) hit a PR for 10K, 10 miler and 13.1 even if i didn't hit my goal time. (pooped out the last 3 miles and walked a few minutes). realized I have lots of long runs to put in before marine corps!

phew, survived 5 meetings!

Met a girlfriend for a run. Felt good again! Dang these little runs rock!

Had good session with swim coach. Fixed some things I was doing wrong and I was much faster. (I finally understood what she meant when said I was swimming too 'pretty'. :) Did extra sets of 300 to get to my month end goal!! Don't remember my times but they were good. I BSd a lot with coach and trigods so was there a long break in middle.

Slept bad again. What is going on? I even took an Ambien and was so awake at 3 am. Didn't fall back to sleep until 5 or so. Ugh.

Hey I am not worried about my poopy workouts the past few days. I am glad that in the midst of a bad workout, I kept going, both for the run and last night's swim....and both times, my last legs were my best times so it shows me that even when I am not 'feeling it' or in pain, I have more to give then I think. I will take that with me on future races!

Thunder and lightening before massage and late from meeting. Run was going to get cancelled but group bike got cancelled for weather. By the time I got home, it cleared up so I ran by my house, rolling hills and all. Had a good run. Legs felt great. Even the hills! I love connective tissue massage. Unlike deep tissue, doesn't wear you out. I booked 4 more visits through my full marathon! :) (she gave me a huge discount for booking so many).

I am running before my massage today near the college. Nice little flat 5K run :) And I got an email from the RNR marathon folks...there are going to be some great concerts this weekend!! Groups from my 80s era too! How cool!! I can't wait so sing, dance and party with the BTers!! Oh yeah and run too!

Didn't get to leave work until after 5, went to Y and had a crappy swim.

  • 300 warm up (8:08)
  • 200 kick
  • 300 drill
  • 200= 8*25 on 35 (usually finish in 4:50, did 5:08, felt not form tonight)
  • 3 sets of 300 (negative splits, 2 min RI), 7:50 (wanted to quit here), 7:38, 7:28
  • 100 cooldown

the only redeeming part of swim was as much as I wanted to quit and give up, my times improved. By the time I got home and ate dinner it was 8 pm. Too dark to run outdoors and I just don't feel like running on dreadmill.

Will do a 3 mile run in the morning before my evening bike ride.
