Great run with John from Running Room, did the lake then some weird turns and doglegs trying to get in exactly one hour. three "water walk breaks) every 2 k, skipped the last one. Great, bloody great, fast run. Much stronger than last week.

909 cals, Max Speed 14.1K/h

This is a Personal Best speed and time over this distance! Thanks Ironman!

Personal best (almost) 10 k at one hr.


Looks like a nice crisp day forming out there, birds are singing, trains are blowing, dumpster divers are clanging.

I love this time of day. It's just me and the sound of the aquarium - won't those goldfish die! It's been like seven years...they are like undead goldfish.

It is as if the day doens't exist and it will evolve only as I plan it and act. Very existential. Now I have a bowl of low salt cottage cheese calling my much for a great day.

Field house indoor track. Went with John and learned from the master. I'm glad I went.

Why am I getting up early to go do sprints with John at the track?

Good Masters' Class. Felt strong and comfortable. A little winded, but swam through it. Some wrist pain in my carpal tunnel hand...don't like that, I tried to relax it, but it didn't help much. Gotta be careful with that, I've been doing a lot of typing lately.

Good workout with Brendan. Started using the new treadmills. Man, I'm a crappy runner. My form is so poor - the treadmill just amplifies it!
Some good core work and arm work too. Perfect for getting me ready for swimming at noon - he mocks.

Quick stretch after workout.

I like the idea of adding some variety so I will try wearing more powder blue knit sweaters and smile more when I ride my fitness bike on the lawn. I don't know about mixing things up though, last time I tried that in college I woke up wearing somebody else's clothes.

It has been a strange, long week. I'm glad it is over. I'm getting the 3 year itch at work and I'm not too happy about that. But this might be my chance to try for an exciting career in rocket surgery!

Fartlek...good thing I was outdoors. A couple of dogs on the trail sniffed the air curiously.
Garmin was acting stupid again. I was going full out and it said I was doing an 11.50m/k pace.

I couldn't find any satellites initially, so I just started running without it linked up. And it was very cloudy.
Overall pace should be in the high fives or low sixes.

Masters' class.
Speed drills felt kinda drilly, but otherwise okay. Breathing was tough first set, but settled down nicely.

So-so workout with Matt and the all male review.
Not as strong or co-ordinated as I thought I would be, but not overly weak either. Felt good to be at it again, but not quite sure what it is...

Okay, back to my private little corner of reality.

They should make a breakfast beer. Maybe with Oatmeal. Why? Because of all times, it's now Crack o' Stupid Time!

Let's see if a little rest made my @ss look big.

One more day of rest.

I'm feeling kinda relaxed and kinda before a race.

I guess sleeping in adds a pound. More likely it is the extra carbs and food I had yesterday after my run from hell. I felt terrible for a good chunk of the day. I'm better now.

Two days rest should help. 

No IM nightmares...It's all good.
