Snow storm today. we got ab out 4" of snow - not alot by msot standards, but enough to make things slick and yukky. I ran after work and temp is 25F, 15mph winds WNW. Roads were plowed, but footing tough in spots.

I am feeling stronger and more confident as compared to this time last year. Today, i couldn't wait until after wrok to run, that may sound crazy considering i walked in this stuff all day

Swim
  • 32m 58s
  • 1400.00 yards
  • 02m 21s /100 yards

I didn't feel real comfortable or smooth, but it was a good swim. had pool to myself for about 25 min. NICE! I felt tired and at 1100 yds i rested for a minute then decide to go more. Was forcing my stroke, so 1500 wouldn't ahve helped

Took off yesterday.  Was really tired, my dad was brought to hospital o Wednesday nite.  Stopped up to visit and the day of rest was good for me.  I had hoped to run after swim, but why beat myself up, the swim wasn't that easy, so anything more wouldn't have been quality.

snowy evening - 33F, starting to accumulate on sidewalk, but very little. good footing. North winds about 5-10mph. Decided to run outside and plan was for 3 easy (recovery run) but i felt ok and took advatnge of snowy yet mild conditions. Added a loop onto what i had planned. I felt good my first split was 7:13 and last split was 7:01. Nice to get outside and not depend on treadmill

If you want to win races in the snow, then you must train in the snow.

Run after swim. Not bad, i felt ok, even after last nite long hard run and okay long swim. Nice to put in some qualtiy back-to-back workouts

Today was my fastest swim - average per 100/yd.  Also one of my longer pool swims.  I am really happy with my progress so far this season

went to dentist today - mouth numb and jaw hurt. So i waited to workout until evening on my day off. I didn't eat much and about 30 min into run, i bonked, not too bad but the last 5 minutes seemed like forever. Afterward i puked. Recovered with some water and sports drink, then did leg routine on machines

did leg routine - single leg extensions - still at 50lb, but feeling stronger.

Halfway through the month and i'm pleased with the way things are going.   My run workouts are faster, longer and stronger - last week i had 2 swim workouts and i plan the same this week.  The consistent efforts with weight and resistance training are helping alot as well.  Still neglecting the bike, but building a great base now.   My weight has leveled off at about 148, so i'm pleased with that.  I'm looking forward to racing this season, i'm healthy and fit - unlike last year.
