Semi early start. My alarm went off at 3:00 and I layed back down and somehow woke up at 3:40 and managed to get on the road at 4:00. I was meeting a few people that were doing a century at 6am so I got 35 miles and 2000' of climbing in before I met them. After that it was a TITS ride, never really pushed it too hard. I was meeting Karen and the kids at a park that was holding a kids tri today but when I got there they had cancelled the race. Bummer! :(

I rode and Karen took the kids to another park where I got my brick run in and the kids had a blast riding their bikes and playing on the jungle gyms at the park.

Overall I ended up with 4500' of climbing.

Brick after ride. Unfortunately, I didn't look at my workout before I started my ride. (I'm a baaaad triathlete) This was supposed to be 30" below my IM run pace, it was actually at IM pace until the last couple miles when I picked the pace up. That counts for something, right?

Well, yesterday was a complete rest day and it appears today may end up being the same. I had an afternoon wedding yesterday to go to and didn't get home and in bed until close to 11:30. Alarm went off at 4:30 to swim and run and I just couldn't do it.

Oh well, I'll try to get a run in tonight. I am planning a very early long ride tomorrow. Matt has a triathlon in town at 9:30 that he wants to do that I need to be back for. 

 

This was in Matt's school papers. I love the perspective, especially regarding the swim. :)

20' w/u spin in small chain ring, keep above 100rpms

Find a hill about 2' in length (do this hill four times)
1 - 30" fast, 90" easy

3 - 90" fast, 30" easy
4 - 2' fast

recover for 2-3 mins between

The rest is comfortable riding.

I fell asleep so fast last night that I forgot to set an alarm and overslept on a perfect morning for a ride. I was beginning to think that a workout wasn't going to happen but mom came to the rescue and took the kids and Joan to Ponderosa for dinner. I squeezed in a 1 hr ride with a nice little hill set in there.

Not really a run workout but I swam with the kids at Dorchester and did a lot of running in the shallows. I worked on dolphining and could not believe how fast that can be. I always seem to pass people who are dolphining but after talking to Kevin (my coach) he convinced me to work on it. So I dolphined while the kids chased me around. :)

It looked like the day was going to slip away without a workout. I was on call all day and got called in for the entire morning for stress tests. When I got home I mowed the lawn and went shopping then over to pick up my MIL and Matt at my mom's place. She was cooking dinner and asked if we wanted to stay so I took the opportunity and did the workout my sadistic coach wrote for today. :)

10 min warm-up (that included a stop at a friends to pick up a baggie for my phone because it was going to be a rainy run, I forgot to stop the garmin.)

Strong 10K
10 min cool down.

Now with a 10 min w/u and a 10 min c/d that leaves 40 min for a 10K!! I've never done a 40 min 10K!! (40:01, once)

I held a strong pace, 40:17 for 6 miles, but was light on nutrition as I forgot my gels and only had a 16 oz water bottle.

Awesome ride! The 1st 50+ miles was around the TT loop 8 times then I met up with Mike and we hit some hills. ;)

I had a close call when I reached for a banana at ~25 mph coasting down a hill. I had my right hand on the aero bar, banana in my left hand and I was just getting ready to bite the top of the banana to peel it when a rabbit came out from nowhere. OH SH*T!! THUMP, THUMP!! It threw me off the road and I steered around one mailbox into a yard then in front of another mailbox and up the lip onto the road again. WOW!! THAT WAS CLOSE! Oh yea, and I didn't drop the banana!! I did however kill the bunny. :(
Now Mike is calling me "Thumper". :)

Polar had me at around 4000' of climbing.

Brick off bike. The girls rode their bikes

Sport
  • Golf
  • 4h 15m

After the brick I had to pick Matt up from a birthday party, drop the girls off at the barn to ride, take my MIL to her house to show her it's still there, make lunch, pick the girls up from the barn, drop everyone off to my mothers and make it to the golf course for a 1:45 tee time.

I got to the course at 1:44. I hadn't hit a ball since the 1 round I played last year with this same group and started off with a par and a birdie. I should have quit while I was ahead. :) Ended up with an 83. I had a great time playing a spectacular course.
