Well, so much for my three for.

Just as I got started, first born, who was doing track got a really bad nose bleed. It took me a while to help him stop it, and clean up the mess on the floor and sink and and and. Take a look at my new shoes.

It was Back to the Future day..

Lots of back stroke and kicking with amble breast thrown in. It was a nice break from the ordinary.

Felt pretty whipped afterwards, but in a good, I wish I had a cigarette kinda way.

Up for another three for today, but gentle ones.

Joined the Tuesday Masters' class 'cuz I missed yesterdays.
Figured out I have to rotate more off my left side to stop this shoulder grief and that I'm a much stronger kicker on my back. In fact I'm better on my back for most things, but that's another story.

I woke up to ride my bike and realized I was sore from pushing bigger weights yesterday.

Realizing my new goal was getting more sleep, I went back to bed.

Did some of these, such as the push-ups to exhaustion.
Felt pretty strong.

More Morden pictures up in my album.



Today I start my taper for the Hypothermic Half Marathon on Saturday. I'm not quite sure how much I'll taper, but it starts today because I have a noon-hour meeting and I can't make my swim.


One of my new goals is to try to get more sleep. So far so good. I feel like crap, like I've been in a coma.

Body Fat calculation (with calipers) was kinda fun. February 2007 was:

Triceps: 11 mm

Suprailliac: 24 mm

Abominables: 22 mm for a 21 % body fat total.

Last night: Tris (7mm), Supra.(10 mm), abs (12 mm) for a new low of 13.5 per cent body fat.

Hmmm. I guess all those skinny ideas have helped.

Easy run, my ass! Good run. Never stopped (except to walk across the street). Ironman kept a great pace, and I didn't have a choice but to keep up. We started rather slow (in other runner traffic) this was good for me. I prefer starting up kinda slow. Then we just got faster and faster. Until my asthma hit...but I didn't stop. I knew if I did, I wouldn't start again. Good little sprint in the -22 weather! 532 calories.

Easy run planned today. It is -27...I'm not exactly sure that I want to.

great spin! On the Road (Spinnervals) Lake Placid IM course. Did half of it. Was essentially a 1.5 hour time trial. Got my cadence and my speed up, felt strong. Good ride.

  • Walking
  • 30m

Had to clear my head a little. Went for a brisk walk...must be my time of the month.

Time to make the donuts.

Setting up the spin class today. Flying solo again. I'm not looking forward to touching my -22c-all-night-exposed trainer (in the car).

Exceptional work out. Felt strong and fast did a bunch of core and stability and strength work.

I missed my Ironman, he wasn't there, but I had a world champion there instead. Yes, Milos, two-time age group Ironman world champion was there. (he of the inspirational quotation)

It was amusing watching him try to keep up, he struggled a bit. I'm impressed by how well he did...and I continue to be impressed with myself because clearly, this Brendan class is no run through the park...

John's still the strongest Ironman I know. Even though he has a fat ankle. :)

  • Stretching

Stretching and rolling all by my lonesome.

I miss my carefree Fridays with Matt. It's Brendan time...

Well, I did the swim that I will be missing tomorrow.

Left shoulder a little sore and it was clicking a bit. I did some kicking and got the beginning of a major cramp in my right leg, that I managed to walk off...I'm falling apart!

I found this online (while trolling for dirty pictures). Kinda relevant to my life and eating habits....

What I've learned so far:
1). That I eat most of my calories in the form of snacks - that I'm not a big eater of "meals".
2). That I eat between 2500 and 2900 calories a day.
3). That a lot of calories come from my kids' crusts, and from "popping" things in my mouth without thinking about it. For example, while making a healthy 1/2 sandwich, I will "pop" one slice of cheese and one slice of turkey in my mouth while making it.
4). That I burn between 500 and 1200 calories per day.
5). That what I consider a "portion" is actually twice the size of the manufacturer's portion size (i.e. cereal!)

Those of you paying attention will like to know that there was a 6) but I left it out...


Decided to sleep in. I wasn't overly tired, but I'm going to be getting up early in the next two days and there was no compelling reason to ride my bike this morning.
