Bike
  • 1h 07m 54s
  • 20.00 miles
  • 17.67 Mi/hr

Did 20 miles on the trainer. Did the Spinnervals Aero Base Builder until I hit 20 miles. I felt fatigued on the bike and changed my setup several times. Ever since I made that change a few weeks ago, things haven't felt right. Aches and pains... and feel like I've lost power and that I fatigue much more quickly. I am in dire need of a new bike fit. :(

Swim
  • 30m
  • 1300.00 yards
  • 02m 30s /100 yards

Overall workout felt ok. Rt shoulder feeling a little sore but I haven't spent a lot of time in the pool. I always feel a little "weird" swimming at the Bubble. Takes a while to get dialed in... My stroke count was around 19 for my avg which is a bit high from my normal 17-18. I think we may have been swimming meters instead of Yards?

I feel like I'm not even putting in a workout in these small workouts. Going to Masters tomorrow and I'll have Brandon work with me on my stroke. Today I spent time working on my catch and getting my elbow high during my pull.

Here's my workout:
WU: 300
MAIN: 4x50 Easy/ Drill
5x100 Swim
CD: 200 Easy
100 Easy

Another work day from hell is expected. :( Almost the weekend but looks like I'm going to have to put some hours in to get caught up. So, I got out of the pool and realized that I forgot an important piece of clothing to go to work.... my boxers. I'll post a pic in my album as to why you should lay out your stuff the night before. :) Here's the link: (In my "For Fun" folder) http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/photos/show-album.asp?albumid=3907&photoid=27151

Ran this am with Scott & Dale. It was 33 degrees when we ran and I completely overdressed! Never fails, I can just never get the whole what to wear thing right! Haha! Maybe I should start off in shorts/tshirt then run for a bit and if I'm cold put something more on... only prob is by the time I realize, I'm already a mile away..... Hmmmm, ponder that...

Swim
  • 30m

Did 1000 yards at the 6 Mile Lane YMCA today. About 35 kids taking swim lessons and they let me have one lane to myself. Thanks kiddos!

Swim went well and I never really felt all that balanced but it'll come as I spend more time in the water. Swimming with TTS tomorrow morning at 'The Bubble!"

Good strength training session today. I didnt get to do core as I ran out of time. Will need to do that later tonight after City Council Mtg.

Sport
  • Stretching
  • 15m

Stretched out calves, hamstrings and worked on piriforma-painintheass-is muscle.

Work is goign to be hell. Whole right side of head hurts like hell from all the dental work, just waiting for someone to piss me off at work... :) City Council mtg tonight and then get some more work done afterwards, though they'll want to go out for beers afterwards. Looking to get my swim in at lunch today, though I'm not sure that'll work. But I'm looking on the bright side.... at least I don't have to go to "band camp" tonight. LOL! Hope everyone has a great day! ------------------------------------------- Ok, worked sucked. (Doesn't it always though?) But I knew it going in and kinda expected it. I had to leave my laptop at work so my boss could run some queries.... hope James doesn't send me an email about the WPS job since my boss needed my email. (Maybe he'll look to see all the bike porn I've been looking at... aka T's pics) LOL! Well, off to go preside over my first City Council Meeting as the Mayor!

Bike

Did 55 min Spinnervals workout on the trainer. I was SO tired that I was dizzy and weak for most of the workout. I moved my seat up only slightly in attempt to open my hip up a little. HR was high for most and I forgot to hit the start button so I'm guessing at my avg but I'm sure I had a lot of drift because of lack of sleep.

Can't seem to get my puffy eyes open. Heading out to train on the bike. Today is gonna suck. Meetings all day and I feel like crap. I needed to take a personal day yesterday but my boss was being a bleep-bleep and kept scheduling meetings for me. Argh.... I wanna go back to BED!!!! For about 10 hours! -------------------------- 5:15pm Okay, this week has slowly been hell! Got to work and within 20 minutes of getting there, one of my teeth broke exposing the root. OWIE! Started getting very sick and luckily, I was able to get in to the dentist on an emergency basis. $380 and 4.5 hours later I went home and went to bed. I woke up at 5pm and took some pain meds and I'm heading back to bed shortly. God's way of making sure I get some sleep I think? Hopefully everything goes well tomorrow and I'm back to normal good as new.

They cancelled my flight from Chicago last night at 230am. Me and 7 of my newest closest friends (folks in line w/ me) rented a car and drove from Chicago to Louisville. UNITED AIRLINES SUCKS!!! I've been awake for >30 hours now.. so I'm off to bed to dream of fireman wishes and triathlon dreams. ;0)
Got up and got on the scale and came in at 153.8! WTF! Ok, enough rest... I'm now 12lbs off my race weight. Argh... Leaving for GB very shortly. I'll update my blog in the airport after my "discussions." Wish me luck!

I got 8.5 hours of sleep last night! Wow! Though I still woke up a little tired, it felt good to sleep in. (Sleeping in is 8:30am) Hip is feeling, knock on wood, a little better today. Still going to continue w/ the ibuprofin and stretching. I'm going to rest until Tuesday and hopefully be good as new! I wonder though... would I be allowed to do some core training???

Run
  • 18m 20s
  • 2.06 miles
  • 08m 54s /Mi

Woke up and looked out the window and it was POURING outside. Ok, I have to ask, what is WRONG with me??? (T and E.... no comments!) Most folks would see that and say, NFW I'm heading back to bed. I see it and I'm pumped up! I think, "Woo Hooo! A mental toughness day... BRING IT ON!" Hum.... I'll have to ponder on that one. So does that make me "tough" or just plain "nuts?"

Well, I'll stop beating around the bush... the run went pretty well. Dale had me run with the 9:15 pace group today because of my hip..which I was fine with me. The hip feels fine when I'm running but hurts like hell when I'm sitting. Very odd...

The run went well, a little wet and one lady was even carrying an umbrella... YES, you read that right, an UMBRELLA! Temp was close to 60 degrees so we could wear shorts! Sweeeeeet!

Ok, the run... the run went pretty well. Dale had me run with the 9:15 pace group today because of my hip.. which was fine with me. The hip feels fine when I'm running but hurts like hell when I'm sitting. Very odd... We talked a little about my MAF number this morning and whether I should reduce it or keep it the same because of my propensity to overtrain/ get injuries. I rec'd my book this morning and we went through the formulas and we're going to keep it the same... 141. Though there really is a pretty solid argument that it should be 146, but 141 will keep me in the range. After the run, Dale had me talk to Rob, a PT in the group. He did some stuff with me, yanked, stretched, and pulled my legs. He said that I have good leg length but that the muscles in my right hip are pulling my right leg higher. He was naming the muscles that he thought it was and he thinks it's where all the muscles come together in the groin area and that it's deep down. He called it a pubic... something-something muscle. (Maybe Ms Sue can make sense of it all for me?) He did some thing where he pulled my leg REALLY hard 3 times then had me put a ball between my legs and squeeze it for 10 seconds, 10 times (10x10). He said it will open my hip up but that it's probably going to be very sore for the next couple days. He said to take it easy, light stretching, take some ibuprofin if it helps and that by Tuesday, it should be feeling great. If it's not feeling better by then, he said I'd need to come into the clinic. I was ok when he was yanking on it, but now that I'm home and sitting... Owie! I'm heading to UofL vs Providence basketball game w/ some of my friends then home to do some laundry. (Don't I WISH it was REALLY doing laundry!) So I'll catch you homies later this evening! And T... no, the breakfast food didn't show up this morning. ;) Hope everyone has an AWESOME training day!
