Ugh. What a horrible workout. Was supposed to be an 800. So I started out doing a 100 swim, 100 kick, 100 swim to warm up. Started into the slow 800 and at around the 300 mark I hit a wall. No rhythm. Horrid form. Out of breath. So I stopped at the 400 mark thinking I could recover and would wait a minute and do another 400. Did a 100 and could barely finish it. I think it was the sever lack of sleep. So I quit because I know trying to continue would be worthless. So incredibly frustrating. At least the massage I got afterwards was nice.

Slept for crap last night. I think it was the tea I had before I went to bed. Note to self. DON'T DO THAT AGAIN.

Well, the good thing is that I have the day off today. AND I get a massage at 11. Yippee! Easy swim this morning before the massage.

very easy 20 minute recovery ride.

Easy 30 minute run. 4 minutes run, 1 minutes walk.

Not too bad of a day, nor too bad of a workout.  Rubbed a heck of a lot of skin off of my right foot during my run.  That's ok.  Need to really build up my callouses again.  Had some great ones last year.  But they went away during my time off.  Painful building process, but that's ok.  Getting started a lot earlier this year.

So every day I work out, I try to keep in mind that I am still way ahead of where I was this time last year.  That's hard to remember.  Many times, I think, ugh, I could be doing so much better.  I was doing better than this just a few months ago.  But then I remember that I am at the beginning of my season and that was at the end.  So I try to keep that in mind.  Keep it all relative.  I'm waaaaay ahead of where I was this time last year.  I don't even think I could run an hour non stop till well into the season last year. I've already done it one, and I think I have another one this weekend.  All part of a good base build.  And hopefully will help in putting some better times up this year.

Well, didn't get to go swimming because I had to shovel.  At least I was using my arms. 

To continue with the rest of today "meh".

Another cold day. Looks like they did some more filling in across the street. I'll have to take a photo soon and post it so you guys can see what it is like.

Will probably go to Yoga tonight. Seems to be quite beneficial. At least on the flexibility part. I'm certain it is also helping on the strength part. Another two weeks and I start the new program. I'm quite excited and nervous all at the same time. It is quite a bump up from what I did last year, but that's what I need to do if I'm going to try to place in my AG. And of course, that is not an easy thing in any AG, but being in the 35-39 AG doesn't make it any easier.

Ride easily (1 heart rate zone) on a mostly flat course. Keep the effort very low--light on pedals.

Oh dear lord.  I swear to God that whoever designs trainers/stationary bikes must take a course in physics, specifically as it relates to the time/space continuum.  Two hours on one of those things fells like a lifetime.  I would bike for a while and purposefully NOT look at my watch and think I would have ridden for at least 20 minutes, look down and it was only 5.  Horrendous!  Didn't help I didn't get any good podcasts to listen to so I just listened to 2 hours of Queen.

On a good note, they are starting to put water in the depression across the street.  That means that as long as the temperature stays good, we could be skating by the end of the week, if not sooner.  That will make Beth one happy camper.

Well, that is the first FULL week of workout out I've done in quite a few months.  Other than the miserable drainer rides, I'm having fun.  I hope this season is a good one.

Run NON-STOP very easily on a soft but firm surface (heart rate in zone 1 only). Pretty form and quick cadence.

Slow easy run today at the track.  Hate running at the track but oh well, it works. 

Daaaaang it is cold today.  Bitter cold.  It was 2 when I woke up.  Only made it up to 8 for a high.  It will be that way for a while, from what they are saying.  Maybe it will stay cold enough for them to start doing the ice rink across the street.  That would make for some nice workouts.  outside on the ice.
