Z2 Aerobic, Mill Rd rollers. Felt better than yesterday but same speed. Oh well :)

Waiting for the town inspector today.  If he comes before lunch, I can get to the pool afterwards.  If he comes after lunch, the pool is scratched and I'll just be able to Run this evening.  I was out at a business dinner later last night so I'm a little tired.  Very proud of myself as I didn't eat any wings - had grilled tuna, brocolli and sweet potatoe with one soda.  Once I catch up on sleep I plan to start running in the early AM.

The main set hurt as much as any I can recall, plus I felt some wicked fatigue. Talking with other triahletes, and regular folk (family and friends) EVERYONE is fatigued right now. I've concluded it's because Spring is finally here. The sun is up earlier, out later, and most of us are spending a lot more time outdoors. After a long Winter our bodies need time to acclimate to sunshine and fresh air. :)

Z2. Didn't look at my pace once and just stayed aerobic.

Swim at Lunch, Long Run this evening.  It was very hard not training yesterday, but it was the right thing to do.

Wife is a Judge at Brookhaven Lab Science Fair all day.  Pool is getting installed this morning.  Son's lacrosse game at 1:00.  Driving to the city tonight to pick up my grandmother who is staying over tonight for a Mother's Day Brunch we are hosting at my house tomorrow morning.  Not sure training is fitting into the equation this weekend, which is fine.  Because A.) It's not all about me :)  It's about the Mother's this weekend.  and B.) I'm pre-riding the Quassy course in Connecticut next weekend, and riding the Harriman course the weekend after that.  I could probably use the down-time before that back-to-back weekend!!  :)

Wind absolutely crushed me. First hour was rolling hills along wooded roads and the headwinds were manageable. Then I had tailwinds for miles 20 to 30. And then the suffering began. Miles 30 to 50 were rollers in open farmland and the headwind were relentless. Non-stop 25 mph wind just battering me. Didn't let up for a second and it crushed me. So much that I couldn't even enjoy the tailwinds when I finally turned around. I had to use them to recover.

Hoping for 80 on the Bike today, followed by a short transition run.

I kept looking behind me. Ever since I got buzzed by that car last week I'm paranoid. I'm going to buy a mirror tonight.

Z2 Transition Run

Official Long Half Results were posted and I actually finished with a 1:29:07 -- :02 seconds faster than I thought. :)  Definitely getting on the Bike today and tomorrow.  Today will be a little over 20-miles with a short transition run.  And tomorrow, God-willing, I'll get in 80 miles. 

For all you coffee drinkers, I picked up the best coffee I've ever gotten from Starbucks - Komodo Dragon Blend.  It's from Indonesia, and it's just amazing. Absolutely amazing.  Blows away Pike and Sumatra.  I did a quick google and other people have given it rave reviews too, but apparently it's a llittle hard to find.
