Various drills with Jason at Masters' class...the pool is getting a little crowded..Did the armlock dance with a fellow swimmer.
Felt good to be underwater.

  • 1h 00m

Mens' group...The boys showed up this time...so so workout, I got something out of it, but it is pretty tame....jury is still out. Matt is not the greatest trainer.


Let's try this Crack O' Stupid and doing stuff thing again. I messed it up so badly yesterday.

  • Health data: Hours slept: 6

Alarm didn't go off..I forgot about that a.m./p.m. thing. My whole training day is  wrecked.

On the other hand, I have five additional fingers. 

  • Health data: Hours slept: 7

Today is hereby declared a rest day. I don't think I've taken one of those in over a month. I'm still up kinda early, but no Amber, no Jason, no swimmy swim or running naked through the freezing house to get my tights on. Let's see how this goes.

Trail ride at Regina Beach with John and Pat. Perfect day, no wind, couldn't ask for much better, Were supposed to do a run with first wife, but went grocery shopping instead

Great ride, Absolutely beautiful part of the world, circling the lake.

John said "The trail was an old railroad track that was removed due to lack of traffic. It used to take people from the city to the beach on weekends. Modern society just doesn't get it at times." That John is a philosopher.

Slept in and woke up at 5:30, and 6:40 and 7:30, finally got out of bed at 8 ish. Went shopping...didn't run, as I ran yesterday.


Beautiful day.

Turkey Trot. Ran with Ironman Starcorp. He was just givin' 'er. I kept up with him for about 3.5 k, He must have been doing a 4.5 pace...I didn't want to blow up, so I slowed down, but kept him in my sights. A couple of people passed me, but I still felt pretty good.
Personal best run for me over 5 k.
500 M. fast warm-up before helped I think...so did running with John.

Slept in. Needed to catch up.

Turkey Trot 5 K today...not sure whether I'll race or just enjoy...It's all good.

Drills Drills Drills.

Lots of one "sound of one hand clapping" strokes and catch-up starting from the hip...Tired, but did very well, methinks.

  • 1h 00m

Brendan pulled out his psycho killer hat today. Made us hurdle over boxes, pick up tractor wheels, fireman carry punching bags then hold them like a lover and squat...a real thrill.

You know, I'm stronger than I thought.
Good workout. Neck is still sore, knees feel great

Sore neck this morning. And my knees hurt...I think the knees are sore from sitting on them for an hour in a tipi yesterday. That was some good Sage!

  • Health data: Soreness: 2 Hours slept: 6

Still felt tired when I got out of the house. Took the first split very slowly 7:30 pace - 800 m, then I picked it up from there 5:43/2.09; 5:52/3.08 and slowed down on my way back uphill and home to 5:55/1.03.
I'm definitely getting faster. I've dropped another pound, that might be helping, but I think I've broken a mental barrier running with the Ironman.

  • 48m 23s
  • 1700.00 meters
  • 02m 51s /100 meters

Did an endurance set from one of my tri books...I still can't finish it in time, but I could have if I didn't have to go back to work.
600 easy
16 X25 @40
3 x 200 : 20s rest
finished with 50 kick and 50 easy.

I am now beat. My arms and upper body are tired.
It is a good tired though.
Bring it on!

  • Stretching
  • 15m

Stretching outdoors after run.

Beautiful morning...except for the city crews spraying for cankerworms...yikes.

Tired this Crack of Stupid. Did lots yesterday, maybe that's why. Did do my usual sleeping on the job, but actually was in at 7:30 working...hmmm, can't let that continue.

I need another nap. But if I close my eyes, they won't open for hours.

Too late, I already have all my running gear (including gloves and toque) ready.
