Man! That was windy. Went for an easy ride with Rick and his new P3. Terrible day for a first ride. Going 30k without peddling on the way back...His first time on a tri bike and he wasn't completely comfortable, but smiling like a cheshire cat!

Felt weird being on my tri bike for the first time since Ironman. Felt good weird. Strong weird!

Tomorrow I race.

Had a nice dinner with friends yesterday. Watched Grey's Anatomy...oi, TV has become painful!

Today I'm going out on my tri bike...I thought I was supposed to taper?? My friend Rick just got his new bike delivered and wants to go for a spin...he's desperate. I hope he takes it easy on me.

Strength

Very strange workout with Brendan. A lot of core strength work. Lot of balance and power stuff, including punching bag. Then we ended with a 15 minute killer beep test (running).
I felt pretty good...strong.

I've forgotten how much I adore getting up to visit my pal The Brendonator.

Speaking of pals, I discovered a nail in first wife's vehicle's yesterday. The tires should have been replaced two years ago. Well. No point in fixing the flat that will come as soon as the nail is pulled out. that's another $700 bucks that I can't put towards a new P4 That I will never buy.

Sigh.

11 am.

Didn't get my Starbucks...a reporter had a hissy fit and I had to help calm things down...hmmm, reporting on Kindergarten kids with books...I was challenged to find who was more mature.

 

Strange getting up and not feeling guilty about missing training. I will soon!

Today I have a Media thing at Chapters...woooo hoooo! Starbucks here I come. (For my American friends, The only real Starbucks in this city is in the Chapters books store.)

Indoor spin at Level 10.
Great sweat.
New trainer.
No where near as good as Nick. She tried. Didn't get a lot of respect from the class.

I felt freakin' strong.

Another day begins.

I feel amazingly good, physically, after my run last night. 

It should be another tough day. But I can get through this. It isn't about me.

You know you live in a small town when you go out for a run and cross paths with your Chiropractor...twice...and then you have to sprint to catch up with him.

LSD run that turned out to be faster than I expected. Felt strong. Stopped once for water at University. Did a negative split.
Still no HR belt battery.

Great run. Something is clicking.

Was thinking about running this morning, but couldn't build up the initiative.

We bought a Wii Fit yesterday...after trying to get one for months and months. We all did some weight calibration and tests. It seems that I was obese and will have significant health problems as I age. It recommends that I try to ease into some kind of excercise program, perhaps with three 20 minute sessions a week, so that I can build the stamina to do more rigorous excerices, such as long walks or biking.

I hate BMI. It is the equivalent of the 220-age Heart rate formula. 

Anyway, I did some of the flexibility and yoga things on the Wii and they were great, actually. I may do a lot more of that. It checks and rechecks body position and balance. That is something that I really struggle with. 

Don't mock me because I am obese.

Had to be done...Did birthday gift shopping for second born...Nice relaxing day.

Lazy Sunday morning. Didn't get home from the country until midnight. Just hanging out with first wife, wondering where the lions are, thinking about eternity.
