What's worth the prize is always worth the fight

Well, there went my daily exercise streak.  Oh well - it was bound to happen sooner or later anyway.  A far more pressing priority came up yesterday morning - finding a new place to live.  Quickly.   (long story; clifs notes are that our landlord wants to move back into the house)  Wound up driving all over Northeast Columbia to drive by some houses I saw listed online.  The pickins of decent rental houses are slim right now, it seems.  Consequently, never made it to the gym and also never made it out on a walk (my plan B).    Such is life.  Then, as I expected, I didn't sleep altogether well - fell asleep reasonably quickly, but then was wide awake at 2:56am.  Mind racing and couldn't get comfortable - felt like everything on my body hurt!  Oy.  Finally dozed back off again sometime after 4 and woke up again just before the alarm went off at 5:15.  Still decided to swim as planned, as I knew it would help wor[...]

Forced myself up for my run.  I have allergy shots today so I had to run before them cause you aren't supposed to work out for four hours after getting them.  It was a good run, light drizzle and just plain fun.....something I haven't felt about a run in a long time.

Registered for another tri today. That will make two sprints and a relay this summer. That's more than I've done in several years now. :-P

11:47 AM: I don't know why I bother to state my plans here... Life always seems to find a way to interfere... but I will do so yet again.
Tonight I have the GGT ride. Since that ride is 15 miles at 15 mph, and doesn't really qualify as "exercise" for me, since I'm neither sweating nor breathing with any difficulty, I'm going to leave here EARLY today, head home, grab my bike, and hightail it over to the Kaneville loop. I'm going to ride that twice. (For the record: It's not really a . It's more like a flat, happy, serene loop of roadway in rural Illinois) but regardless, I'll ride it once at Whiz-speed and once at GGT speed.
I also have an official GGT top. Finally. So I will be dressed in the appropriate costume. Or at least the appropriate top. I don't like to wear unknown-brand shorts. The lady bits complain. Haha.

Work a Little Harder

I got my run in this morning, it was the first one in almost 2 weeks. My hamstring felt OK during the whole thing. Granted, it was only 1.5 miles, but I am on my way. More of the same tomorrow morning.
TW and I had a real nice discussion on the power  of the mind this morning. I know I have a lot of work to do, and I also know how important this muscle is for training and racing.  I have to improve, but isn't that true of some aspect of everyone?
In more completely unrelated news, tonight is the fundraiser for the Cancer Foundation. And how, pray tell, do you raise funds in this town? Celebrity Bartender Night!!! Gary, the owner of the LBS, will be behind the bar. And TW and I will be there as well, helping out however we can. My philanthropy knows no bounds.

Trying to Tri

After work, I went for a ride. Perfect temperature in the low 80s, but it was very windy. Pace felt pretty good, although I was probably a bit too aggressive. My back got a little sore, and I suspect it's because I did not keep good posture through the entire ride.

"GET TO MILE 18 on the run!"

Stats taken after workout and before dinner, %water 70.5, muscle 39.4, bone 4.1. Well the plan called for a Z2 ride with an insertion of 30 min Z4. But, that's rather boring ;) So, I opted to do the Sufferfest video "Local Hero" that I've done previously. This has a bit of everything: time trial intervals, short racing intervals, and sprint intervals. Really gets the HR up I'll tell ya! Plus good video and music. Pretty much averaged Z2 and while I didn't do continuous Z4, I got into it enough.

Tomorrow morning (early), I'm having a photo shoot of me in tri gear by a budding triathlete who's a fairly professional photographer. He's doing a project on endurance athletes and when I saw his work, asked if I could be a part of it. Not sure if he will charge me anything but perhaps I can bring him something back from IMLO in trade since he's since up for IMLP 2015. He was there volunteering and is just so psyched to do this. The energy is refreshing! Then I think just an hour[...]
