1 loop ILRA with rr hill

I was tech gear challenged today...on the run, I pressed stop instead of lap, so I missed several strides in the data.  On the bike the bike computer speed was being weird again and the hr monitor kept recording 0 then popping back on, then off again... that is after I started it late.  Laughing

I did however, have a very good time at ILRA...I got to swim with Ranger and  a couple of his IM buddies, Kevin (a hound) and his brother, Glen , Melissa, MSU Dan, and Miss Idaho Kimm .  Then I rode with Ranger just the loop in the park.  We ran into some more of Rangers friends (very nice fellows!) back at the parking lot, saw Jazz and Yeats with their lovely Miss Cody Bear and chatted them up!  GOOD LUCK AT PIGMAN JAZZ! Laughing  Another fun day at the park!

warm up for Fred

  • 1h 00m

Fred for 1 hour. Lots of upper body, walking lunges, pushups and core today. Ow.

I love the Fred man, but ow.  He worked me pretty hard today, but I guess that's why I go to him!  :-)  Lots of upper body work even though I told him TWICE I had to swim 2000m after I left him.  Fred is not a merciful man.  But the swim was better than I'd expected.  My shoulder didn't bug me that much and I only had one tiny calf twinge. My splits for each 1000 were very consistant too, which was good to see.   Sweet.  Finished up by stretching in the lovely bubble tub.  Gosh, I really love hitting the bubbles after a swim! :-)

Now it's off to the bass lesson.  Might hit National Coney in Royal Oak for dinner tonight...all the cool cars are starting to be out and about for the Woodward Dream Cruise!  You can see a lot of the cars, without all the madness of cruise days.  :-)

*the boat is NOT fixed...the battery was NOT the issue...tomorrow the dealer is bringing the diagnostic equipment for the engine to the house to test the boat.  GRRRRRR.  It's August 12 and the boat has not run right ALL SUMMER!  Some one at Evinrude is gonna get an earful if they can't fix the issue pronto!*

On a more pleasant note... we hit the coney for dinner, but no cool cars, just bad (but so good) food for dinner.  Brian and I drove to Woodward and it was bumper to bumper...we cruised for 1 mile and spotted my teammate Jeff and his enourmous dog Newton heading to the pet store, and got to say hi!  Too fun!  We saw lots of VERY cool cars...Old Vettes, Mustangs galore, lots of cool Chevys,  a hot rod rigged with a keg on the back end, and the favorite of the night was just a mile from our house...a pink caddy with fins!  It was cool to cruise for the one mile, but more than that and I'd go bonkers!

Brick off bike...from house to wattles and back

Busy busy day today...looked at and made an offer on an investment property...the guy who lived there took EVERYTHING...cabinets, toilets, the bathtub, lite switches ,electric outlets.  He punched holes in the glass block windows in the basement, drilled a nickle sized hole in one of the kitchen floor tiles (right in the middle of the floor of course), cut all the electrical wiring in the basement, took the electric box from the basement, and according to the neighbor, killed a tree in the landscaping and some shrubs with poison on purpose.  Hmmmm...I think he was upset he lost his house to the bank.  I don't think we'll get it, but it would be a nice house eventually if we did.  We shall see! 

After doing all the figuring and paperwork, I just barely had time to get in my workouts.  I don't know why I always think short workouts will be easy.  Um, those sprints were HARD!  I really never get out of the saddle to climb, so yeah...very different from my usual routine.  Then my short run wasn't scheduled to be a brick, but it fit the timeline, so it became a brick.  My shins hurt for a couple minutes, but I felt pretty good on the rest of the run, and had a decent pace going.  That was nice.  I had to take a quick shower and run out the door without stretching to get Brian to his trumpet lesson, so I took a couple minutes to stretch outside in downtown Royal Oak.  Yes, I am a dork.  And no, I don't care if people think I'm a dork! :-)  I NEED to stretch, or bad things happen!

Then it was off to the lake house...the boat died again on Dave and Brian on Sunday.  He figured he basically ran out of gas, so we were going out to test the theory.  Um, the battery died before we left the dock.  Seriously...that boat is pissing me off big time.  So much for buying made in Michigan...we've had nothing but issues.  This one isn't a big deal, but yet another beautiful boating evening eluded me.  Dave and Brian headed home, but damn it...I was in my bathing suit and ready for some relaxing, so I got my runners magazine and read on the boat till the sun basically set.  Pffffft.  Stupid expensive brand new non working boat.  The battery is charging right better flippin' work tomorrow...or I'm gonna lose it!

Kind of dreading working with Fred tomorrow...have a busy morning, Fred at noon and a big endurance swim afterwards.  Hope he doesn't kick my arse too badly! :-)

LFT Rochester

I got to sleep in a bit, clean the house a bit, got my OATH welcome newsletter pulled together, printed, labeled and mailed to 160 families (whew...glad to have that off my plate), race report done, dinner on the table and THEN it was time to swim. 

Late night for me at the pool.  I had hoped to swim in the outdoor lap pool, but no there after it closed.  Now I know...closes at 8!  I forgot the hr monitor, so I've no idea on time or hr...kinda nice actually!  I did my 3200m workout divided by half.   I was supposed to go at 90% for 4 100's,  but only managed one.  Fook that noise.  I did have a good workout overall though.  Hit the bubble tub for stretching and soaking and felt like I was in Europe.  No one was speaking english in either tub...WTH?

Sylvania sprint tri

Had a great race today in OH!  I was gunning for a PR on the bike and I exceeded my goal!  Woo Hoo!  I ended up being fast enough to get   1st in my age group, which was very nice icing on the bike pr cake.  I had a blast with Steve (he was especially sassy today!) and Karen, who both had pr's too and cheering on my teammate Sunshine to her first Olympic finish, not to mention cheering Jim, Carol,  and Danny from fast and Ron from Master swim!  Oh, and the beer was darn tasty!  Race report to come tomorrow!

transition practice 3xaround the block

  • 20m

pt for knee, hip, glute

Welllll, today was to be an off day, but I really wanted to practice t1 and t2, so I did 3 runs through here at the house.  No swimming...just running with wet feet to see if baby powder and body glide help with the bike shoes.  Survey says, I don't know!  But, the body glide does help with removal I think, so yeah, that's good to know.  My hr got pretty high pretty quick on the bike and run....should be interesting on Sunday! 

I'm going to put on my bathing suit and wash my bike in the sun.  Cool

Tonight, we dine with the best neighbors evah, and I'm really looking forward to it! Laughing
