15 min wu, 4 x (90 sec hard + 180 sec rec), short cd

Going to try and spin at the gym today. Tonight, the plan is to pack and get everything ready for tomorrow, then heading out. :)

For the week of the race, I'm going with the "less is more" philosophy.

9PM and I'm packed and ready to go! The plan is to leave tomorrow at 8AM, stop by Charlotte to meet Art, then we're headed out! W00T!

I talked to a few buddies yesterday about nutrition, cramping, and rest b/c of the cramping I've experienced as of late. Afterwards, I went and bought a few Pedialyte bottles to sip on during the rest of the week. I finished a liter yesterday. This morning, my calf seemed fine. I see Pedialyte in my immediate future.

The plan I'm not really following scheduled 4 hours this week. That'll mean a short run today and a nice little ride tomorrow. Thursday, it's off to Louisville! W00T!

Did the run on the plan today. It consisted of 4 hard efforts for 90 seconds and double that time to recover. I was shocked at how responsive my legs were. Getting up to speed on those hard efforts was almost effortless. Maintaining that speed was just as esay. For recovery, I just did my normal run effort. Overall, a nice little run.

500wu, 10x100 on 1:40, 300cd

I have been battling cramping in my right calf (and only my right calf) for a few months now. Every morning, while laying in bed, my calf will cramp should I point my toes (stretch). It hurts like a bitch when it happens, and for several hours (or even a day or two) afterwards, the muscle feels strained. This morning, it happened again. I eat and hydrate well, so the only thing I can think of is that my electrolytes are off. Going to stop and grab a few gallons of some electrolyte drink today and start sipping on it until IMKY.

In the process of cleaning bike up and getting it race ready. About 65% complete, and will aim to finish that up today. Going for a run a little later.

Was not looking forward to this run. This bug is taking a little longer to slay than I would have thought, and the antibiotic I'm on is making my tummy upset. Knocked it out, slowed it down, and now I feel much better. Bring on race week!

Sufferfest Isla Giatt at 85-90% today. I am sooooo done with indoor, trainer work...SICK of the rain. I have a run sched'd for tomorrow, which will be an hour, and then all my workouts through IMKY will be short and sweet. I'm ready to get this show on the road.
