Did the Hangover Classic this morning. See Race Report.

Dale.. please don't freak out when you see my HR. I felt pretty comfortable the first 7 miles. :) Tomorrow, it's back to my <141.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! Whoo Hoo!

Did the Spinnervals Aero Base Builder III with the training studio today. The weather was so warm this morning, but pouring down rain. It's noon now and it is BEAUTIFUL! If I didn't have a 10 mile race tomorrow, I'd go out for a 2-3 hour ride.

Workout was good, kept HR low and under MF max of 141. Though towards the end of the workout, it was getting a little tough and I was experiencing some drift.

Had a large coffee, a glass of Chocolate Soy Milk and some chocolate chip pancakes after the workout. Yummy!

Ran a new 6 mile course this morning with Team Training Studio. Course overall was pretty hilly and focus was to keep avg HR down below 141. Was pretty tough, had to slow down to almost a walk at some points.

Piriformis is still pretty sore but spent about 20 minutes trying to get it stretched out along with my hammys. Legs felt pretty dead at the end of the run but overall, it was a good workout.

Biked the Sleepy Hollow/ Covered Bridge course today. How in the he** did I ever keep my avg HR <141 I do not know. Those are some SERIOUS hills... which is obviously why I did them; to get STRONGER, but there were some times I was thinking, "When will this hill be over?"

It was SO beautiful out today. High 50's and sunny so I just HAD to get out and spend some time in the saddle. For the most part, the cars today were pretty accomodating, but those a-holes on motorcycles nearly ran me off the road... every last one of them. Maybe next time, I'll accidently drop my water bottle up in the air as they pass or simply spray water and see how they like it! (Not that I'm bitter...) LOL!

Workout overall felt good and I can tell all the strength training is helping. I was pretty much shot after 1.5 hours and was thinking... well, I'm almost a 1/4 of the way there now.

Decided to do a short brick after the bike today to get accustomed to running off the bike. Legs were as expected.. like jelly and my first mile was at 8:04; entirely too fast. I always have a tendency to take off on a brick. I think it's a combination of being happy to have my a$$ off the saddle and the high bike cadence/muscle memory. Something I will desperately need to work on in the coming months.

Felt like I was going SO slow but my HR was much higher than I was trying for. Keeping the ol' ticker under control is getting increasingly more dificult. I'm wondering if maybe it was the fact I was sweating a lot, didn't eat lunch, or needed some nutrition... or simply the fact I was running too fast? :) Ahhh, well maybe I should just flip a coin!!!

Strength

Did all kinds of strength exercises with Dale today, most of it was new stuff I'd not done before. A lot of upper body stuff while balancing on one leg.

Woke up pretty tired this morning. Even though I've backed off on the training this week, I've not really felt "recharged." Overall, I feel just plain 'sluggish.' I guess that's normal for this time of year w/ the holiday and all. I'm looking forward to actually starting my training plan and having some greater structure around my training. Right now, I just feel like I'm putting in some junk miles. My right hip (butt) is still hurting from last Saturday's run. I thought the massage would help, but i'm not sure we really got it all worked out. I'll ask Dale about it this mornining on how I can stretch it out. Hurts like you know what! Hope everyone has a great training day!!!! :) Evidently that part of my a$$ that is hurting so bad is my piriformis. He showed me some good stretches and though it feels better now after stretching it, actually stretching it was not a heck of a lot of fun. Ahhhh, the end justifies the means! Good bike and brick today. Felt nice to get outside and do that! Bad email today, I'm sad..... :( :( :(

Tooled around the neighborhood today. Did several hill repeats in Oakhurst to build some strength in my legs. Felt pretty good. It was close to 60 degrees out and I went past some kids today several times doing repeats and they said to me, "Wow!!! You go REALLY REALLY fast!)

Ran this morning with Dale and the Doc. Felt pretty good but ran pretty slow to keep HR down. :(

Had bad work dreams last night. :( Woke up at 3am and couldn't fall back asleep. No bueno..

Met Amy for some strength training this morning. We did not do the Mt. Climbers today because the plantar fasciitis seems to be coming back again. :(

Boy did I NOT want to get out of bed this morning. Was in BT chat last night for a while and probably was up a little too late for getting up at 4am to train. Feeling a little under the weather this morning, but I'd imagine it mostly just because I'm tired. Only 9 more hours to go before I can go home and go back to SLEEP!

Ran the loop with Darby. Today's her birthday and I just let her run. She absolutely loved it.

Felt good to go out and stretch the legs. Didn't feel winded or strained at all to run a 8:04 pace, though my avg HR was much higher than Dale would like me to keep it. But it just hurts to run so slow!

Meeting Amy at the Training Studio tomorrow to do some strength training. Not sure if we're doing legs or upper body. Good news is the plantar fasciitis is getting better... knock on wood!

Did Masters swim at Milestone last night. It was distance night and I jumped in the "fast" lane to get a good workout in. It was pretty tough and it was by far the most difficult swim I'd done w/ the team thus far. It felt good.

I swam the fastest 400 I've ever done, 5:55 and my first 200 was in 2:23 which is super fast for me.

Amy called late last night and cancelled our training session this morning. Probably best as thanks to the Christmas spirits, I wasn't feeling so well anyway. I'm planning on training this afternoon on the trainer. But I have to drive to Clarksville (again) to replace the latest trainer they've given me!!! Don't know what the deal is, but my bike is rocking back and forth in it and it is making this HORRIBLE sound!!! Almost sounds like a jet engine. There is obviously something broken inside of it and I'm afraid that it will break open and spill oil all over the floor. It's so loud that during our training session on Sunday, we couldn't hear the TV to keep with the Spinnervals workout! I'll update my blog again later...... Ran 3.3 miles with Darby in the evening then went to Master's swim. I decided to jump in the fast lane with Mike, who swam for Notre Dame. He pretty much showed me who my daddy was, but he definitely pushed me to go harder than I had in a very long time. I need that. I'll see how it goes for next practice. My arms... they feel like noodles!
