Got the 225x2 very well, and also the 2x295 on incline. Doing pull ups while trying to hold a 20lb dumbbell between my feet was tough, though. More for the balance than the strrength

Feeling good that I've got a decent streak of workouts going this month. This is the time of year that I tend to fall apart with workouts - the weather gets cruddy and the kids get busy with school stuff and I lose motivation. I looked over last year's logs and I really fell off the wagon in Nov/Dec/Jan. I'm hoping I can keep this up throughout the winter and go into next year's race season with a much better base than I did this year. I'm also hoping to do a few fatbike races in the mountains, so that will help too.
Spent the day doing my grocery shopping, cooking a bunch of freezer meals, and tracking down cheap furniture for Nate's parents' house up in Granby. The haven't been able to sell it and it's empty, so we figure we should furnish it and use it as a place to crash during ski season. Scored a queen bed for $50, and a couch and loveseat for free. Yay for Facebook, and having a big truck! We'll take the stuff up there this week and do some fatbiking or snowshoeing.

No way I could ride today with the torrential rain and lightening. Didn't even feel safe running and just could not get on the trainer. I figure the key workout is the 100 mile ride so I'll do that tomorrow and will also add 4 mile brick run as the weather is supposed to be beautiful tomorrow.

It really SUCKS losing mileage on the bike but I know now is the time it won't kill me to take a day off. If this was January I promise you I would have forced myself onto the trainer. Next week will be a big week since I'll ride long tomorrow and next Saturday. I am also not going anywhere for Thanksgiving so can make my regular 30 mile weekday rides 40 miles. This is going to be a big week and I love it!

Marathon pace run. First quarter mile (a little less) did not register b/c Garmin wouldn't sync.

Kind of hard to keep marathon pace in a tight range of 6:15-6:20. Will prob expand range up to 6:30 from now on.

Long run of 11 tomorrow.

Planning the USAT mega-brick that they posted a few weeks back.  Something along the lines of 30 min bike-10 min run-10 min bike-5 min run-10 min bike-5 min run.....and so on ending with a 20 min bike.  Total time is 90 minutes, Thing is I have a crap ton of housework to do.  So I am starting the day in cleaning mode first.
Killer.  Spent.  Could not finish the last 15 minutes of the cool down cause my legs were cramping up.

Stats taken after run and before getting something to eat/drink, %water 68.2, muscle 37.7, bone 3.9. I was going to do this Half Mary+ course I like to do at Antietam and on the C&O Canal towpath today, but I decided instead to get some errands done that could only get done on a Saturday rather than wait for another time. Best to get some of these done when I could. Plus it's going to be warmer tomorrow and the rain is expected to hold off until late afternoon. So, pushed that off until tomorrow. Will make it a slower, easier run than today.

Speaking of which, I don't know what got into me during this run! I did put on other shoes as I'm wondering whether these Saucony's are actually causing the problem with my right knee/upper calf? You wouldn't think so but stranger things have happened. So, I decided since this wasn't a long run to use my Altras instead. Those caused problems on a longer run but they do okay for shorter ones. And they worked fine here on this run th[...]

Set my HRM to alert @ 160 (80%), but my goal was to keep it around 150 for the first 2 miles.
Pretty much accomplished that, 1st mile was good, mile 2 was more in teh 152 range. Ran the whole time w/o the HRM every beeping! Was up at 159/160 a few times, but was able to bring my HR down to 157 or so.

Avg. Pace was somewhere around 11'30".
