Wow. This ironman thing is going to be hard. This run was really really difficult. I was still hot from the bike. I think the weather is going to be a big factor in my race. I did well mentally. And with keeping my HR down.

Should have been an hour. Route got screwed up AND neither of us wanted to be late. Apparently all the satellites were on the other side of Earth today. It never picked me up.

VERY easy day on Three Creeks. It was a return to the scene of the crash for me. So more therapeutic than anything. It made riding seem fun again. I'm not scared of the path anymore.

Run
  • 1h 00m 06s
  • 6.05 miles
  • 09m 56s /Mi

SLOOOW.
This is my longest run since the crash, and it felt the same (not great) all the way through. It is hard to just get up in the morning and run without warming up my knee with swimming or biking. I stopped midway to massage some of the tightness on the kneecap and it didn't help much. The whole run was in the dark.

Swim

Well, blast it all. I had everything worked out so I would be in the pool swimming by 6:40 a.m. That was all well and good until I walked up to the doors of the Y after running for an hour and noticed the sign that said the pool was closed for maintenance. I had to drive 10 minutes through downtown, pay $6 to park, walk a block, etc. just to swim in a 20-yd pool. Grrr. I did not feel at all motivated during the swim. I kept looking at the clock, wanting to get out. I couldn't really use my workout book because I didn't want to deal with translating all the sets for a 20-yard pool and being at the wrong end all the time. Bright spot: I did see Joel there, in his new job as aquatics director.

Bike
  • 57m 46s

Little loop up to Walnut, then back down past home and into North Linden to pick up the truck for work.
Felt fine. Not great. I could definitely feel Sunday's ride in my legs, plus stiffness in my knee from Monday's lack of activity.
