A short, race intensity ride. HR was a little high today. Wind was blowing like MAD!

Still staying away from running. I would like to get a short little run in just to get some blood moving but the hip is feeling pretty good and I don't want to aggravate it before the race. If I feel OK Monday I will ease back into marathon training, otherwise I will need to make a decision to scrap an October race altogether or switch to a half.

Little swim to make sure the race day set up will work out.

Got email from the race saying the water temp is currently 58 and neoprene caps and booties are allowed.

I raced CDA 2008 around 58 and it was chilly in the sleeveless but I was OK after 1.5 hours. Getting out of the water and on to the bike will be an unpleasant experience Sunday.

Short, intense ride. Windy today. Hip was ok.

Back/ hip is feeling pretty good today. Still not going to run. More ice/ heat and ibuprofen. Short and intense ride on the schedule for today.

Today I think the pain could be mor from my back.... damn it. Who knows. All I know is that running certainly aggravates it. Swimming and riding will be the staples this week. Total rest again today.

Ok, so the last couple of days I have had this pain that "seems" to radiate from my left hip. I wasn't quite sure if it was back related or in fact my hip.

A couple of hours after my brick on Friday it was quite painful and Saturday it was real bad. Ice and ibuprofen make it better. My best guess is tendonitis in my hip. Not good. I HAVE GOT TO GET NEW SHOES! I am sure that it is being caused by my shoes that are severely broken down.

I most likely will not run at all this week and just lay it out there on Sunday and see how I feel. I hope this isn't the end of my fall marathon aspirations.
