I screwed up my swim set...I forgot my w/o at home and neglected to do the 6x50 easy that was written, but when I was going over my splits I realized I did an extra 300 set, so at least the distance was correct!  Still feeling like a tug boat in the drink, and the quads were angry pushing off the wall.  I practiced flip turns during the c/d and I still suck at them! :)

I got a chance to work in the yard a bit before the Orchestra trip meeting...it felt great to be in the garden in the sun!  I only got a tiny bit done, but at least it's a start.  Lots to do here plus the lake house!  OY!

After the meeting I made some sugar cookies that are for a cancer fundraiser concert Kaity is in on Friday.  They look like blobs instead of ribbons.  Some of them were sooooo ugly, they needed to be disposed of.  They were DELISH! :)

on the red devil in Troy

I was kind of a bum today.  I spent way too much time pooping around on the internet.  :)  I did get a few errands done in the afternoon and got caught up with my neice with a nice long chat.  All the major stress is out of her life, and her pregnancy is going great now.  She can't see her feet anymore when she looks down (hee hee) and she's back to working out 3 days a week.  That was very good news to hear. 

I picked up some new insulated water bottles at REI with my dividend.  I figure I've got some long hot rides coming up this season, so I might as well be a little better prepared for them. 

I was able to go downstairs today with out holding the handrail!  Progress on the recovery front!  Woo Hoo! 

I rode around the nieghborhood again, but my hr was wonky.  I started out in the mid 40's and it took like 12-14 minutes before it got up more than 20 beats.  Then later in the ride it was in the low 130's which is endurance for me on a very slight incline.  And I mean slight.  The quads did not like the stop and go....I just tried to spin high cadence and light on the pedals, but it didn't feel good like on Sunday.  Me thinks my legs are still mad at me for Saturday.  :)

Woke up 2 times instead of 4...hey that's a 50% improvement! 

Got quite a bit done errand wise, talked with my coach about the race, and swam with the Fraser peeps.  Got a hug from my swim buddy Scott!  Haven't seen him in an age!  To quote Coop, I felt like I had lead in my pants for most of the swim.  But, it did feel kinda of nice to be in the water, even if I didn't really have any speed to speak of.  I hope the legs are better for it tomorrow. 

Race report is done.  :)  Still smilin' about Saturday!  Cause my legs haven't let me forget just yet  that I'm a marathoner now...and I've got the ouch to prove it! ;)

with Sherry and KC dog, and the boys and Crazy Jonah too

You'd think I'd have slept like a dead woman, what with the race and 3 count um 3 beers during the day, but NOOOOOOO.  My mid forties womanly body had other ideas...UGH!  I hate perimenopause. 

The legs are stiff and sore, as expected.  Went for a walk with my brother and sister-in-law with the pups and it felt good.  We ate bagels, pineapple and had coffee, and I was still hungry after a 1 mile walk!  OINK!

Went for a ride this afternoon and it felt smashing!  Gorgeous day to be out on the bike.  I did have a few rough patches of road that were...um, painful, so I'm thinking it's time for more real road miles...no bumps on the computrainer!   The legs were happy spinning on the small chainring on the flats and I hope it helps the healing along. 

Hoping for a good night's sleep....school and the grind start back up tomorrow.  Fingers are crossed!!!

15 wu
1 mile at 9:00
15 cd

Had some weird dreams about training for tris and a gravel pit, and not having the right gear.  I wonder what Freud would have to say about that???

Cold and windy run.  Coach wanted me to run 20 wu and 20cd, but I didn't want to be on my feet that long.  Trimmed it to 15...I'm gonna have to focus really hard to hold pace.  I went too fast, then slightly slower than just under the 9:00 he wanted for the 1 mile.  Hmmm.  Focus for 4 hours.  This should be very interesting tomorrow!

I'm hoping the weather forcast is accurate.  I'd rather have the nice warmish temps instead of this chill today.  Oh well...what ever it is, we will all be running in it together no?

at the lab...ar only

Got woken in the middle of the night by Kaity sobbing hysterically.  I about had a heart attack.  She had a drama with a friend which she didn't want to discuss with me...only her friends could understand, so after about 30 minutes of hugging and trying to be helpful, (of course I can't be helpful...I'm just the dumb old mom) I went back to bed.  That was an awful way to wake up, and a not very pleasant way to try to go back to sleep, knowing I couldn't do anything to ease her stress.  You think you'll be able to sleep after the baby days are gone.  Nope, not always.

The ride in the lab was...fun, but,( good god I'm sick), boring.  I wanted to do the AC and VO2MAX stuff so much, cause I couldn't! Sick!  I'm a sick puppy!!!  I got to help a new guy Joe with the terms and timing of his ride though, so that was cool, and I got to chat while everyone was in recovery. 

Tony set my pacing for me, gave me a few hints and we talked about training coming up this spring.  I have to give the legs a week off of running and then it's time to start building again for R4R half IM in early June.  Wow.  Early June!  YIKES!
