Goofed around a little too much today. Feeling good, got homework done and napped. 1:30 on the bike and a 50min run with Josh at about 5:00/k.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Ran again. 15k at 1:15:00ish I left at 2:00PM and got back by 3:15PM. I pressed stop instead of lap on my watch. Woops gona do about 20-30 mins of core/yoga then I gota finish homework.

Just did yoga on Saturday. An hour and a half on the bike and 15.5k run. I've been short on my long runs because I have been biking before the time I would usually run. It was still a 3 hour day but this Tuesday I'm going to do 20k followed by a 40k on Saturday or Sunday. Donno yet.

Yesterday I did 2 hours on the bike followed by a quick 30min run. Did not eat dinner but had some clif bars. Went to RATT with the rest of Tri Club for beers. That first one hit me like a ton of bricks. Good times.

Why was my run so hard this morning??? Could not get below 5:45m/k. Did 6 stair sets and 45 min in the pool. I might step back a bit from training until mid April because of school. That depends on how productive I am. So new goal. Be more productive so I can keep the training level the same.

Peanut Butter!!!!!!

Peanut Butter Cookies with muesli and hemp hearts = power food. Ran a steady 11k in the snow and ice for 50min. Had some close calls. I've been finding I go out hard, fade then finish strong. Going to the gym to spin, row, lift before 3 hour foreign policy class.

Kind of a wasted day. Slept in. Class went late. Didn't run like I should have. Didn't do the whole set at swim practice. Balls. Tomorrow hit it hard.

Long day split in half

No lifeguard for our pool time! WTF! just bike / run. An 1:20 hours on the bike and a 4k run. Then had lunch. Made a spinach, banana, blueberry, flax meal, and maple syrup smoothie and it was awesome! Then a 26.5k long run through the river valley. 2:29:41 hours and averaged a 5:43 pace in the end. I'm not crazy about the pace but there were some bitchen' hills and I did brick before hand. So like a four hour day. Boosh.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I tried dates on the long run and my home brew energy gel (rice syrup, honey, molasses, lemon and lime) sooo much better then gels from PowerBar

Too busy at the Room to really stretch or roll out but core was great. Swam 2600 yards (2370 metres ish) with a 1500 yard TT (1370 metres ish) with a time of 21:29. Not shabby. Time for the last of the chili and whatever else is lying around.

Friday at the room

Friday's I usually work a shift at the Running Room. Great chance to stretch and foam roll. Not ever too busy. After the shift, 45 min core then 1.5h swimming. Maybe get a chance to do some homework or might just watch TV and go to sleep.

Thursday, down week

Thursdays I've usually been doing 2 hour revving sessions and then running with Josh. Tonight we did about 5k with a flat section at Josh's marathon pace. I like Thursdays. I train hard and eat a lot. Did some yoga and ate some chili then time for sleep after Barney's Version.
