9AM-Felt like a pile of poop today. The back of my neck on the right side is kinda stiff.. not sure if I slept wrong or what. Haven't been in the pool for a few days so I can't really blame it on overuse. Hm. 5PM-This is what swimming workouts start to look like when all you're doing is adding distance and you don't know of any drills or anything else to occupy your time with! You get goofy stuff like 2 laps, 3 laps, 4 laps, 6 laps, etc. I'm not even really concentrating on form or anything. Though I am occasionally practicing my bi-lateral breathing, which for the most part I think I'm okay with. My right side is still definitely my dominant side, but I CAN breathe from my left.

Distance is moderate estimate.

Hopped on the trainer during the first half hour of Heroes. Kinda loud when you're not on the concrete floor of the basement! It has that wood sub-floor on which to vibrate... Lesson learned tonight: A fan is an absolute must on the trainer. Plain and simple.

Those are my splits for the 5-K today. Not too shabby if I do say so myself! Definitely a breath of fresh air after the stinky performance at the marathon.. sheesh! This lady started talking to me after mile 1 and in the midst of our conversation our pace slowed a little bit. After the 2nd mile marker we vowed to pick up the pace and 4 min. into it she was suckin wind hardcore as I was about to take it up another notch! She motioned me ahead and I hammered it home. My very first official 5-K.

Pretty good run today! My left arch muscles were hurting early on, then it changed to my right achilles tendon. Guess that's what happens when you run 8 miles in 3 weeks! I wish these arches would quit hurting... Anyway, we ran on Mopac East which- *gasp* has mile markers! They kinda sneak up on you; they're just railroad ties about 2ft high stuck into the ground with a little placard on them. But they had 'em! So we ran a mile, I split it, then we went 4:59 [was supposed to be 4:50 based on our first lap time, but I missed it] and turned around. Not sure on how far we went so I just assumed it was a half-mile. Shortly after turning around Brynn was having a gut-check so we stopped and walked a little bit before HAMMERING it home in 9:06! Felt purty good, especially with the extremely low volume as of late.

Slept on my right shoulder last night and woke up with some serious pain-age. Didn't feel good at all. Did my best to stretch it out REALLY well during my warm-up. Stretched, did a lap, stretched, did a lap... 4 laps total stretching/swimming. Then went into my set. I wanted to do 3x500 but my left big toe cramped up big time during my last lap-and-a-half so I had to quit it 3 laps early. Didn't do much for my arch either, all things considered. Okay one of the cats just pooped and it STINKS, and I'm probably 20-feet and two rooms away from it! Blech.
