Another scheduled TITS ride. A few minutes short on time. Misjudged the distance and pace, but other than that a good ride.

The pace was slow, but that is all good, since it was a Z2 ride and for much needed TITS. Kept the HR down except in the hills.

Just put the CJ away for the weekend, so I decided to change the avatar back.


Another good ride with FrankAmato and Twolives (Lisa).  No car wrecks this weekend, which I guess is a good thing.  Rode the Felt (Katrina) today.  Boy does she ride good.  I forgot how great a bike she is.  Still thinking about getting her a different color paint job.

 

The rest of the day is going to be spent with Champ and CJ.

Week in Review:

Time:  7+10
Swim:  2500 yds
Bike:  59.15 miles
Run:  13.91 miles

Well it was a good week of training, but not close to the prescribed amount.  Got a little over 7 hours of training in, but was scheduled for around 9 hours.  However, I intentionally cancelled two workouts(the bike ride the night before the LT test & the run the day of the test) so that I could get some training info to use.  The only real missed workout was Thursday's swim.  That was just due to being tired.  But guess what...I am going to be tired during the IM...so I better "Cowboy up!" and start making all of my workouts as they are scheduled.  On the good side, I am 40 miles over my bike total from last month and it is only the 11th.  (goes to show how much last month sucked :( ) 

Run
  • 1h 17m
  • 8.00 miles
  • 09m 38s /Mi

Good run. Got out to Shelby Farms and knocked out an easy 4 miles (9:18 pace), then kicked off my TEAM in Training participants on their 4 mile run; knocked out my other 4 miles then waited on the others to finish. Gonna be HOT today, so it was good to get this one done early.

Changed the avatar, just because it is too nice of a weekend NOT to be in the Jeep.  It's a Jeep weekend!!!  The Guinness turtle will return after I get through playing this weekend.
Run complete and back home.  Now I am seriousy contemplating doing the 2500yd swim that I missed earlier in the week.  Maybe do that this afternoon. Nope, got too many errands to run.  Oh well, better luck next time.
Up early (0430) so that I can head out and get my run done before it gets too hot.

Computrainer ride.

For those that are asking...yes, Champ loves the Jeep.  He is already riding with me whenever I go out in it.  Heck, I think he is part of the reason that I bought it.  So does the dog IN the Jeep make it more of a chick magnet???  Some of us need all the help we can get!
The day of rest definitely helped.  I feel much better and I am looking forward to the CT ride tonight, the 8 miler on Saturday, and the 3 Hr ride on Sunday.  Time to Cowboy up!

OK, a pic of the new addition to the family has been added to my albumn.  More to follow in the next few days.

Trying to listen to the body today.  Not sore, but just tired.  Maybe this will be a yellow square day, then again, maybe not, we will see after work.

LT & VO2 test. 10 min warmup then 10 min all the F out! Ouch!

Oh yeah...and tomorrow night I go and pick up the new addition to the family!
Test completed this morning and just got back from the massage.  Gonna take the rest of the night off and enjoy the post-massage livelihood.  I will rearrange the sked and catch up on things on what would have been my off day on Friday.
Off to do my LT  & VO2 tests today.   Semi-busy day at work planned, then the massage, then home to get in a run.  I sure to miss my beer days....

Swim
  • 55m

WU: 1x300
DR: 8x50 pull
SET: 12x100
DR: 8x50 pull
CD: 1x200

I could definitely feel that I have been out of the pool for two weeks. Just didn't have my rhythm.

Oops, I forgot that the massage appt wasn't until tomorrow night.  Thankfully I remembered before actually leaving to go the said appointment.  And I will need the massage after the LT & VO2 tests tomorrow morning.
At the pool at 0500, now back at the house for a shower and breakfast before heading off to work.  Massage after work!!!

Run
  • 1h 05m 05s
  • 5.91 miles
  • 11m 01s /Mi

Did the scheduled 1+00 workout in Z2 as required. (5.41 miles @ 11:06 pace).

Now I am headed out to run Champ around the block again. Finished the .5 mile loop in 5:05 with Champ.

OK, it is official now...I have completely lost my friggin mind!  Not only am I just beginning my training for IMFL, but I just dropped some nice dimes down on the IMAZ 07 entry.  Yep, back-to-back IM's.  I really wanted to do IMAZ this year, but with all the shibit that went on as you guys know, I swtiched to IMFL (again!).  But today, I was looking online and noticed that next year's race is on April 15th...the day that Marla died.  I got into this because of her, so there was no way I could not race on this day FOR HER!!!

I looked on the sked and I will have a chance to take 1 month completely off then start back on a 20 week plan like I am doing now for IMFL.  Hope the bod holds out!


I wanted to get up early and get my run in before work, but I couldn't get my lazy arse out of bed to do it.  I will just have to do it after work instead.  Busy week of workouts and also another massage on tuesday, LT & VO2 tests on wednesday, tri-thursday workout, then finally an off day on Friday.

 

Last week was a good start to the training, but I did miss two swim workouts, shortened a run by 20 minutes and missed a strength training session.  Wasn't 100% for most of the week, but stilled managed a 7+42 week, so I will call it a good start and move on.
