Excellent run at lunch today! My legs felt strong through the entire run. This got me in a little trouble, as I quickly got above my aerobic HR range without even noticing it! LOL I decided to just run. I pushed a bit harder for the last 1/3 mile or so to get in under 45 minutes. 71 degrees when I finished.

Nice early morning swim. The pool was very crowded this morning at 5:40 am.

Good swim this morning.  Since I didn't run last night....(like that was going to happen ;)) I'm running at lunch today.  :)

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  :)

Great run in the bag!  I might need to do a bit of checking because I have not run this fast for 5.33 miles very often.  Might be a new PR.... ;)  Today's overall workout rating goes from a 4 to a 5.  :)

203 this morning.  :O  That's what I get from eating at Outback last night.  ;)

Tonight's Hurricane's game will feature a great intermission performance.  Alex's Mites hockey team will be playing for a few minutes at the RBC Center, on the same ice that the Canes and Devils were just skating on.  All of us are very excited.  It's going to be a blast!  :)

Oh, and the Canes are once again tied for the best record in the Eastern Conference with the Senators.  Both teams have 4 games left with the Canes holding the tie breaker edge over the Sens. 


More good news!!  The schedule will work, so I'm registered for my first race of the year!  Look out at the Riverwood Sprint Tri!  Everyone else will now have to fight over 2nd place for "Most Fun In the Race"!  ;)

OK, I'm planning to run after the Canes game tonight and to get up early tomorrow morning for a bike trainer ride.  Help keep me honest, guys!  I've had enough lazy time the last few days.  :)

Good lunch run with very tired legs.

There is something very gratifying about finishing what feels like a very slow run, only to find that I'm still under (barely) 9:00/mile.  :)

My legs were very tired today, right from the start, but no soreness anywhere.  I hope to get in a bike trainer ride early one morning this weekend.  All of the kids will be with us so there likely won't be a chance for any other workouts.  Still, I'm very pleased with my week.  :)

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!  :)

I have absolutely no idea why coming back was so much faster...not going to complain.

After more thought, I think the time difference was due to traffic lights. Many more long red lights on the way out.

Good early morning swim today. This is my longest swim in over 6 months.

Up and out early again.  I could get used to this.  Who am I kidding?  I'm a night owl.  LOL  I'll do early morning workouts, but I'll never get used to it.  ;)

Happy Thursday, everyone!  :)

 Well, today turned into a big workout day!  Somehow my keys went to work with Sara this morning, after I got home from the pool.  Fortunately, I'm able to work from home on my computer from time to time, so that was not a problem.  I walked with Alex over to his school, only about a mile round trip.  My problem was that I had to be at my daughter's class to read to the class at 2:00, and Sara would not be off work by then.  Julia had been talking to me for the last two days about me reading to her class, so there was no way I would let her down.  What to do, what to do?

Wait.  I have a bike.  ;)

 Again I am so thankful for my health and a lifestyle that allows me to ride 26.5 miles on my bike, to read to my daugher's class.  I didn't think twice about it, but most people in this country would not be able to even consider it.
