Indoor Pool
Not enough swimming and too much talking tonight

How do I feel today? Not bad this morning, a little tired as usual but I slept good last night. Luna did not get up until 7 am so she must be getting back to her normal routine. I am planning on swimming at the pool this evening. I will try and get an hour of easy swimming in this evening.

I got a swim in this evening but I didn't do much swimming. I got 500 in and I think maybe another 200 and I saw my friend Rick who was finishing up two lanes over. I didn't even realize he was there swimming. I have not seen him since before he did Mont Tremblant so we wound up talking for 20 or 30 minutes. I was telling him about my IMWI exploits so I got very little swimming done but it was good to see him. He is training for the Panama City, FL 70.3 and is doing the Mighty Man Oly on Sunday. For me I was just trying to get a workout in. I really do need to improve my swimming. I will try to do so over the next 3 months.

Tomorrow I am going on a hills ride with Wynn. I'm in the off season and I think Wynn is in his out season already. I have a feeling this is going to be a long and painful 3 hour hills ride.

How do I feel today? Not bad a little tired. Luna is really off here schedule she got up last night at around 5 am and my wife got up and took her out. She is taking a bunch of different medication so I think that she has been needing to go out more. She did not really go back to sleep after that and neither did my wife unfortunately. Today I am planning to get a run in this evening at least 5 miles and hoping to actually do a little more maybe 3 loops for 7.5 miles. We'll see how it goes.

I did get my run in this evening, not bad a 6.24 mile run and I ran it at a 10:30 pace which is like 7 mpm for me especially after all the slow, slow running I did during my IM training. I probably pushed too hard tonight but I did not feel bad doing it. I wanted to go longer but it was getting dark and I was getting tired. I am hoping to get a little bit of a longer run on Sunday morning.

How do I feel today? I'm tired this morning. Luna got up at 3:30 am and had to go out. She was at the vet yesterday and slept early when she got back. I think she was off her schedule as she did not go out later on last night. So needless to say I didn't sleep well after that. No training today though I will be heading over to Carl Hart bike shop to go check out MTN bikes and hopefully come away with a brand spanking new 29er.

I bought a brand new 29er this evening. I got the Trek X-Caliber 7. I really liked the X-Caliber 8 but my wife would have killed me if I would have bought that one. I think the 7 is going to be more than great for what I am going to be doing. Shannon at Carl Hart took care of me and hooked me up with the right bike and she answered all my questions. It should be in next Wednesday so I am looking forward to having it for the following weekend. I can't wait to get started on it.

How do I feel today? Not bad a little tired this morning. Luna was making a lot of noise this morning so we had to let her out of her create a little earlier than we normally would. Not sure what I am doing today. The plan was to go to Carl Hart and get my MTN bike today but Luna has to go to the vet at 6 pm so that means I would have to go get my daughter instead. If that is the case then I will do a ride on the trainer and get the bike tomorrow. If we can get Luna an earlier appointment then I will take a day off and get the MTN bike. We'll see how it plays out today.

What a mess today, so I didn't get to the bike shop. My dog went to the vet but she had to stay longer than expected which meant I had to go get my daughter. Well my daughter wound up coming in on a later train so I could have made it to the bike shop but it was too late by that time to get down there so I will be going tomorrow instead.

I did get a solid hour ride on the trainer. I rode at a moderate to hard pace tonight and I felt good doing it. I just wanted to see how I would feel. I think I am coming around well in my recovery.

How do I feel today? Not bad, a little tired this morning but I definitely am feeling much better two weeks after the IM. I am starting to come around and I have more energy. Today I am planning to head the pool to swim for an hour. I want to focus on my technique which I need to try and continue to improve. I will take advantage of the time I have now until the end of the year to work on improving that.

I got a swim in at the pool and man there was a little bit of a crowd there this evening. In any case slow and easy swimming trying to focus on my form. I totally suck LOL. Seriously I need to spend the next 8 weeks trying to improve my form. I'm not going to swim hard just try to slowly improve. I have been reading the Edurance Nation 2.0 doc and it is blowing my mind, no swimming in the out season? Really, WOW! I could not imagine myself doing that but I totally understand where the coaches are coming from. I want to finish reading that tonight.

Hope I can get to the LBS to get the MTN bike tomorrow. We'll see, we need to get Luna to the Vet so I'm not sure if I can get there but if not I will go down there on Wednesday.

How do I feel today? Not too bad not as tired as I've been lately. I will get a short run in this morning before the NFL games start. I will then chill, drink beer and watch the games. Go Cowboys!

I got a great run in this morning. I changed up my route and ran more inclines. I can't really call them hills but more elevation. I felt great and I ran at a little bit faster pace. I think I am finally starting to bounce back from the Ironman two weeks ago. It was beautiful outside I could not pass up an opportunity to get out there and run. A good week for me, 8 hours of training in the books not too bad.

How do I feel today? I'm tired but I am up early this morning to head out for the group ride that Wynn organized. We are going to ride over to Shelter Island and then come back and ride in Sag Harbor this mornining. The total ride is expected to be about 60 miles. We'll see how much I can do and how long I will last. I'm still trying to get back to normal.

Well we did ride today and the weather turned out to be pretty nice. It was overcast at times but the sun did come out for most of the ride. We started out in Sag Harbor and headed over to Shelter Island via the Ferry. It's a very scenic ride around Shelter Island, really beautiful areas there and it is not flat! We rode plenty of hills, lot's of rollers and there was one really steep climb. Damn I though I left that all behind in Wiscosin LOL! I wound up bailing after we got to Sage Harbor it was close to Noon and I had done 35 miles already. I didn't think I would be able to keep up with group that was left riding the Mighty Hamptons Oly bike course in Sag Harbor.

All in all it was a really good ride, we didn't really hammer much at all and I got way more hills then I was expected so I got a good workout and I'm freakin tired right now LOL. I'm feeling better but I'm still tired so I don't want to over do it. I'm two weeks out from IMWI and still in recovery mode but great ride today I really enjoyed it.

I'm just gonna chill and get some stuff done around the house this afternoon.
