Brick Day.  I actually had to force myself to slow down on the run.  Hit the button on my watch, took off running and the legs felt really good.  Looked down at the watch and I was going 8:02!!!!!!  Whoa there big shooter.  So I slowed the turnover down a little bit and was sitting at about 9:05 for most of the first mile.  Finally got the legs to slow down a little more to get the HR down to 168 and held it there at about a 9:40 pace the rest of the way and then really knocked it down the last little bit just to take it easy.  I'm hoping that is a sign of things to come.  Last year, I would be lucky to do 30 minutes without a ride before it without dying at that pace. 

On a different note, should be interesting to see what happens in the mini-super Tuesday election today.  Maybe the primary will be over after today, because frankly, I'm getting tired of it.  Talk about "the longest season".  Thank god it only comes around every 4 years.

Race-specific

main: 3 x 600, 1 is RPE 3, 2 is RPE 9 for first 100 then RPE5, 3 is RPE 5
cd: 200 easy

Awesome workout tonight.  Felt really, really good.  Especially the high RPE at the start of the second 600.  It was pretty tough but I was actually able to get my HR and breath down before I finished the second 100 and I was still going at a high RPE.  Felt good.

Well, I'm a bachelor tonight and tomorrow night.  Beth is in Toronto.  Will probably go to the gym in the morning and see if Tony is up to going out tomorrow night.

Freebie day!

I did an easy run in Iowa. With hills and I still did an obscenely easy run and did it with the pace above. I'll take it. Can't wait to see what the speed work will do.

Glorious day today.  Glorious.  Wishing that it would stay like this permanently.  But it won't.  Still, it was nice to run outside today.  Loved every, glorious, 3.5 miles of it.  Can't wait to do it again. 

Swim
  • 31m 39s
  • 1280.16 meters
  • 02m 28s /100 meters

1000 time trial. Will use the time for later workouts

Time trial was no where near as good as I wanted it.  I was hoping for sub 20:00 but combo leaky goggles and the hint of calf cramps had me going slower.  So I've got a 2:10/100 pace, but I'm half tempted to set my 100 pace at 2:00, or at least 2:05.  I guess I'll see this week and adjust accordingly.

Heading out to Iowa tomorrow.

More spinning like Tuesday, all in small chainring
wu: 10minutes at RPE 3
main: 5x (2t, 1r) 2t at RPE5, 1r at RPE 2
cd: 5 minutes at RPE 2

Well, it is definitely easier to pass the time on a drainer when you have something to do on it other than peddle.  Kind of like the tempo work thing.  Passes the time a little faster.  Then again, these are only 30 minute workouts.  Looks like next week will pick up quite a bit.

Leaving for Iowa in the morning.  Visiting Beth's aunt and uncle.  He just got out of a heart valve surgery.  Always nice visiting them. 

Sounds like it may actually warm up a bit this weekend.  I hope.

30 min at RPE 3. When finished with run, do 6 x 20 second strides.

Recovery swim
5 x 200 (50 Easy, 50 Build, 50 Easy, 50Hard)
150 easy

Actually cut the run a little short.  Only did up to 25 minutes run and then did the 6x20 strides in the remaining 5 minutes.  Rubbed a wicked blister on my right achilies tendon.  Hmmm... going to have to check how my yanks are laced up.  I think I know what is wrong. 

Well, I won't be on TAN much anymore.  Didn't get busted, but had an email from a friend in IT saying that they were upping the observation on who is hitting where and he saw that BT was one of the top sites on their "list".  Thanks to me.  Tee hee.  Anyway, folks, I'm going to have to take a hiatus from posting for a while.  If I do post it will either be early in the morning or later in the evening.  It won't stop me from working out or logging them though.  And I'll probably be around on the weekends when nobody else is around.  ;)

Talk to y'all soon.
