BT: Long warm-up of at least 30 minutes. Then ride a 30 minute time trial all out, race effort. Use a flat, out and back course. This can also be done on the trainer. This is a very hard effort. 10 minutes into the time trial punch the lap button on your heart rate monitor.

Afterwards, record your average heart rate for the last 20 minutes. Also record distance covered or average speed. Cool down for at least 30 minutes.

Scheduled day off. I think I need it too. My left hip is a bit sore after my run TT yesterday. This is the same hip that gave me trouble on my last 1/2 marathon. I don't remember it hurting yesterday during the run, but it is a bit sore and stiff today. Seems to be a joint pain, not muscle pain. It hasn't been bothering me with my Z2 runs or my interval runs. We'll see how long it lasts.

Run TT
Assess Fitness
After 10 minute warm up, you are going to run for 30 minutes as hard as you can for the entire 30 minutes. After starting the run, hit your 'Lap' button so you record the average HR over the last 20 minutes. This can be run on track the or measured course (flat). Record the time and get a 10 minute cool down. Stretch when done and add in Core 1, 2 or 3.

I marked myself as "healed" from being sick this week. My cough is still lingering though. I don't cough while excersizing per say anymore, but still do a few times a day and I can still feel the "sick" type weight in my lungs at times. How long will this hang on for? 5 days until my scheduled initial bike fit. I want to be measured and told what bikes I should be looking at. I really want to do this. I didn't think I would have to wait so long for an appointment to do this. But the closest real LBS is approximately an hour away, so I can't stop in with little notice. Run TT 30 min = 3.52 miles or 8.5 min/mile Average HR for last 20min of TT 169 bpm, max HR 172 bpm A good chunk of the run was at 8 min/mile, but I had to turn into the wind coming home and it slowed me down a fair bit.

CD: 300 easy.

Swimming felt off today. Just couldn't seem to loosen up and get in the zone. The whole thing felt jerky and forced. Times were ok, just felt weird. Maybe it is a bit of fatigue from pushing hard for my swim TT on Monday.

WU: 10'
MS: 1' spin with each leg. One foot is clipped in, the other foot is unclipped, not pedaling. Then spin for 30" easy. Do this cycle 6x or for 15 minutes. After the 6th cycle spin high RPMS (100+) for 5', then repeat with 6 more cycles.
CD: 10'

Speed/Efficiency
20' run with 6x30" strides. These are best if done on a slight downhill on a dirt path. Warm up for at least 10' before the first stride. For your recovery, you can walk back to the starting point. Strides are quick bursts that are as fast as 5k pace. You are looking to get in about 45 left foot strikes per 26-28". Stretch when done and add in Core 1, 2 or 3.

No too bad of a workout day. Nothing really exciting. One leg drills on the trainer at home is much different than the spin bikes at the Y.

Mon night Vball league
Playoffs round 1
We lost 2-0
Very bad night.

Well, I feel pretty good this morning. I don't remember coughing yet today. Maybe this is finally getting better. I scheduled a bike fit with a LBS on Mar 27th. That was the next time slot available. Just an initial measurement session to determine what my options based on fit are for a new tri bike. Then I will have to decide what to order. Hopefully I will have a new bike by the time it is outdoor riding weather. I should add that I ordered 60 chickens (plus 4 ducks and 2 geese) for pickup in April. Nothing like growing your own food. Why pay big $ for organic grain fed chicken when you can grow your own!! We have done chicken before, but this will be a first attempt at ducks and geese. Just thought we would try it, hence the low order numbers. A few of the chickens are egg layers, so we should be producing our own eggs by the end of this year if all goes well. Swim TT 1000m in 15'45" or 1'34" per 100m (no flip turns) I was really hoping to hit 15' even.

Run 30' on a flat course or treadmill after bike workout. Keep HR in Zone 1-2. Stretch when done and add in Core 1, 2 or 3.

Still a slight cough. Really annoying. Too much snow on the trail to run for long. Kept breaking through and almost falling. Was tough on the calves, so I reverted to a walk after a while. Kept the HR in Z2 though.
