Run after my swim. my legs were rubbery after swim and experiment with fins. Still after about 5 minutes, i got in good groove and kept pace jsut under 7:00/mile. At 5K, i decided to go 30:00 and i kicked up pace a bit for 5 minutes, then backed down to recover last 2 minutes. Nice workout today

I bought some swim fins today from Kiefer Store in Zion, IL.  I've never used anything like them before so this is different.  I will do some research to see what type of drills to do with them.  Today, i kicked for  25 with kick board, then swam 50 freestyle, and finished a 25 kicking.  My legs really need some help.

Rode out toward Sanders Park and Petryfing Spring area, went down HwyA and through Pets, then came back home via wood rd and ohio st.

56F NW winds 7mph very calm afternoon sunny

Some repeats/interval work at the Pettit Center.  It's been a few years since i had been there for that and last year i did one session of 1/4's (6) at outodor track mid summer.  I didn't do too much right now, its a matter of getting used to idea of running fast.   My goal was to do 3x1/4 in under 85 3x1/2 under 300 and 3x1/4 in under 85  -  I threw out the 3rd half for no apparent reason.  I think i was comfortable with my quality today, so save something for the next workout.

Was hoping for about 5, but my hamstring (left) was tighter than i thought. I worked first mile into wind @ 6:54, then looped subdivison and last mile was 6:34. Wlaked dog after stretching then jumped rope for a little bit (ok 50 jumps all i could do)

WINDY WINDY WINDY - Gusts to 28mph SSW - 73F.

Went out Taylor to Ohio St to Kinzie then through some cemetaries. Nice riding north or east, but any other time was a struggle. Good day for first outside ride. Aimee went about 8-9miles - saw her in the cemetary.

At noon it is 67F w/winds SSW gusting to 20mph  Full sunny sky.  At 330PM 73F and gusts to 28mph - Milwaukee hit record high of 74 today, last 5 years March 17th hasn't been above 35F.  Cooler temps the rest of this week

treadmill run tonite - nice day outside, but was busy all day with stuff on my day off. Wetn to gym with Lisa and ran, started out easy and gradually picked up pace and incline every mile for the first 3. Flattened out and jacked it way up. Alsmot felt like i was running downhill after the 1.5% incline. I think last minute was at 10.3mph

Strength
  • 20m

did shoulders/upper back stuff on machines. I felt pretty sick after - i think the gatorade was upsetting stomach. I did feel really strong and have noticed improvements on the machines.

A little disappointed that i missed 3 days last week.  Yesterday was so nice, but i felt like crap after being out late Saturday nite and brunch Sunday morning.  I had no energy and nagging headache.  Would've been nice to finish the week with 3 mile run.  I'm pleased with where I'm at right now.  Midway through March and I'm on pace for 80+ miles running.  Maybe get to ride outside tomorrow on road bike - could get to near 70F.  Still continue with consistency and integrating weights/swimming.

    About 37F and sunny. Breezy from SE. Not an overally hard run, jsut recovery becuase yesterday i felt like crap and tomorrow i'd like to go longer. Simple route, first mile 6:59 and last mile (wind at back) was 6:35 (might be a touch short). Flet ok, jsut a bit sluggish. I don't think i couldv'e done 5M today or even raced a hard 5K.

    Swim

    • 02m 20s /100 yards

    Flet like a plow going through water. Even the first 50-100 yds, was a struggle. Tried to relax and work through it, but wasn't happening. Stopped at 700 to check time/distance (hit watch wrong once) I knew that 1000 was my limit, should've settled for 800 and the run.

    felt really sluggish. Whole day i felt lousy. Jsut decided on run 7 pace and look ahead to the weekend

    My day off today - i drove to chicago to melissa and andy.  Ate lunch at oasis (taco bell and chicago hot dog) afternoon fell a sleep watching some StarWars movie.  Jsut had no energy, but decided to workout tontie becuase i missed last 2 days for various reasons.   I knew when i started the swim, it was a struggle.  I hoped for more on the run, but even that was rough.  Felt like a 1 Mile choppy open water swim followed by 5K run to transisiton through the sand.   This weekend, should be warmer and sunny, looking to get outside for some runs.  Next week is vacation, temps right now look like maybe mid-50's, i think i'll try to get in some road biking
