Ran this morning w/ the new Training Studio team. Ran two miles with the team and met two pretty nice people. A guy who is doing the Louisville IM and a girl named Muffin. After we did the two miles, the run was over and Muffin said she was heading into the park for another 5-6 miles. Since I needed to get some miles in as well, I went with her.

We ran the 5 mile loop and then back to the Training Studio. Good run overall, but my avg HR was a little higher than I needed it to be. Probably due to no sleep this week, stress, the terrain in the park (very hilly) and that we were running a little quick. I need to slow it down on these long runs. (Not that 9.5 is really a long run)

Felt good the whole time but my right piriforma-pain-in-the-ass-is muscle on my right hip is still causing me some trouble. I'm going to shower then spend some time stretching before taking darby to Feeders to get a bath.

Feel pretty tired and worn down from work this week. I can't take much more of this; too much poor planning on others' part creating firedrills for me. I'm going to turn over a new leaf next week, be more assertive and flat out begin saying NO to some of them. Ok, enough soapbox for today. I'm pretty excited about the new team. Two of my friends joined the team, Kristen and Tammy and I think they are going to have a BLAST! This group is HUGE, there were probably 60 people out there today. Everyone is broken into pace groups and Dale even has me as a pace leader for the fastest group, the 8:30. (Maybe his way of reigning me back on these long runs????) LOL! Actually, I'm pretty excited about it and I know the lower HR training is helping. Though I'm still somewhat skeptical, my last race result is 'proof in the pudding' that this is starting to work. In fact, I'm actually seeing my HR drop somewhat when I'm running at a faster pace. I think I'm going to skip the swim practice today and sleep. I really need the rest and I'm just very fatigued right now. I want to take today as a rest day and start the next week off right! So with that.... shower, take darby to get a bath, grocery, then........ BED! :)

Skipped early am workout to get some extra sleep. Presenting all day to CFO and need to mentally be on my game. Looking forward to this day being over so I can get back to training!!! Planning on spinning my legs out tonight when I get home.

Ran easy with Dale and Scott this morning. Was able to keep my HR pretty low for the majority of the run.

Lots of stressful meetings today to prepare for presentations to CFO tomorrow. Heading off now to run, but SO not looking forward to this day. I will be glad when this week is over. 8:40pm~ Work absolutely sucked today! I got home a little after 8pm and Darby looks sooooo sad. She was here alone all day without food or able to go outside and go potty. I'm such a bad Dad. :(

Decided to take the morning and sleep in a couple extra hours. Unfortunately, I got stuck at work late so a day I'd planned on catching up w/ some sleep didn't quite work out. Body feels like it needed a little break. Massage w/ Dee Dee yesterday really helped out. She was finally able to work out that pain in my butt that was killing me to even sit down! Tomorrow is a light 6 mile run in the morning and Masters Swim at night.

Did strength training at home before going out.

4:02am ~ Woke up at 3:40 this morning because I have to get stuff ready for my am workout and to go back to work today. I expect the day to be pretty bad, lots of people throwing a TON of emails around. UofL plays in the Orange Bowl tonight at 8pm so I won't get much sleep tonite. Maybe I should take tomorrow off and try to "sleep in" till 5:30 or 6:00? My body could use a rest from yesterday's race. Even though I stretched, I'm pretty sore this morning.

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!
