I ran, so sue me. ;)
Four ibuprofen work wonders on knee pain! (It's time for more now.) Really, my knee felt pretty good most of the time. Near the end I could feel some burning sensations, and Rob's ankles were bothering him, so we stopped short of the planned 60 minute run.

We went to Mendon Ponds and rain a mixture of roads, trails and fields. Of course hills, but really nothing too steep, and I made sure to not push it too much. Forgot HR monitor, but pace was obviously slow.

Excellent evening with my hubby. Topped it off with a delicious sub sandwich eaten at a nice park, followed by a large, gooey, chocolaty brownie! Yum yum!

Met Dudley, Ken and Mike (Hall) this morning a little after 6 (I was late, sorry). Water was a bit choppy, but felt pretty good. Dudley wished he had his wetsuit! It was a good swim for me. In one of Bob Stocks' blogs he suggested not crossing midline in order to correct problems with swimming straight. It certainly helped me! I focused on making sure my right arm stayed out, and I swam a lot straighter than I have been. Thank you Bob!


OMG my knee hurts soooooo badly right now!! I told Ken before we left the lake that I must have done something to my knee in the water, but wasn't sure what. I really don't remember anything specific, but the pain has been increasing all afternoon. I took an Aleve, but it's done nothing for me. Maybe I'll try a 2nd one, and stop gardening... aaahhhhhh!! I'd planned on an hour run this evening too! Yell

Canal path to Pittsford, then got on 31 and took it back into Fairport where I got back on the canal path and home again. Some hills.
I've just recently realized that maybe I should set some HR zones for cycling. I've never really thought it was necessary, but maybe I will just to see. I think running HR zones are more useful (for me).

Ride on a flat course. Keep HR in Zone 1-2.)

Pumping my graphs!
Spent some time on the fitness ball doing a little bit of ab work. Also did some push-ups. I need to get back to doing this stuff!

Well, that was easier than I thought it would be. I just looked at HR data from previous hard rides. Interestingly enough, the highest HR I could find was from the Tupper Lake 1/2 Tinman 2 weeks ago! (As it should be - I knew I was working hard!) MAX HR 163! So now I have some zones set up. About time!

So, technically, I went into Z4 on this ride, when I was supposed to keep it Z1-2. I don't know if it can be done. I'd have to walk the bike up a hill to keep out of the high HR zones I think. At least this gives me something to think about now on my rides.

Dropped off kids and left from there for an out and back on a very hilly course.
I forgot my bike computer - BT route tracker says ~12.7 miles and 492' of climb. I felt pretty good even with the heat. I managed to take a chunk out of the palm of my right ring finger as I was switching gears. I pushed down on the lever right onto the skin and OW!!!! Lots of blood too. I just moved a band-aid over from the finger next to it!

I sliced vertically right into my nail yesterday reaching into my sewing box. That was very painful and a lot of blood too. I'm still not sure what I got myself on. Oh, and I got stung by a bee yesterday too... It took a ride on my shirt into the building where I was picking up Bryn and got me good near my right hip. I need to start wearing a suit of armor!

Drove over to watch Tyler at soccer camp, then got bored so I ran until I had to pick him up.
I'm using the term "run" loosely. It's too damn hot out there to run. I trotted. No HR monitor, but I could tell it was elevated even on the flats.

Both kids' first day at camp, the only week of the entire summer I managed to get them BOTH in a camp at the same time, and what do I do?!?!  Dishes and straighten the house up....  boring...  It was an hour and a half of bliss, though!  Smile

After an entire week of being apart, my ass and my bike seat had a joyful reunion! It was quite touching... ;)
I rode on the canal for part of the ride, but at least half of it was on rolling hills. Got caught in the wind and rain, but it was still a good ride.

This was a fairly flat course with a couple of gradual hills. Half on canal path. Didn't do a great job keeping HR in check. Had THREE bobbystocks stops!! I almost ended the run after the 3rd one, but only had 17 more min left so toughed it out. I had felt a little nauseous prior to this last stop, but it subsided. Not sure why. It was a decent run even with all of the little aggravating "issues."

I imported a new training plan last night - basic Olympic, 12 week.  It's set up for the Finger Lakes Oly.   Need a 90 min bike today according to plan.  Only time to do it probably was early morning.  I laid in bed and enjoyed that comfort more than the thought of getting on the bike....  Now that is NO WAY to get better on the bike - lying there THINKING about it!!    Oh how I wish I were a morning person.


3 hour baby shower today which is a 2 hour drive away.  My day is essentially shot.

Plus side is that it's for a cousin who has tried to have a baby for nearly 10 years and is finally able to adopt a baby from Guatemala!!!!  He's 6 months old now and they are waiting for the call to go get him.  I can't imagine what they must feel!!!!!   

Well, I decided I love getting chastised so much that I went ahead and learned how to use IrfanView to make more of my photos uploadable!!  There's more in the Tinman album now.  Enjoy!
