finally got a massage today. most of the time was spent flattening out my calves and hammys and ass. i could barely walk after the massage but i think it will be a good thing. and it took all my strength not to cry a few times. will probably need 1 more next week to really work my quads and fu on my calves/hammys/back again. dont be like me and let your body go too long w/o a massage.

long ride to san marcos and then several loops on outskirts of san marcos before returning home. took 1hr to warmup and then pushed race pace for last 3hrs. around mile 50 had really sharp pain in right hip/glute area and it hurt the rest of the time to pedal. weather close to what race day will be like (70s early, 80s late, lots of sun and wind). nutrition was simple. usual pre race bfast early, smoothie p-bar 45min prior to ride, 1400cals of infinit cramed into two 24oz bottles. drank an addl 45oz of water on ride w/ a few salt tabs.

long t-run of the bike. held pace thru out and seized azz cheek didnt bother me too much. drank about 400cals of the super secret infinit run formula along w/ another 20oz of water. felt really good on the run and look forward to running like this in AZ :)
***
today nutrition for the entire workout was 1800cals of infinit. no stomach issues at all. that stuff is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!

texas tech ruin my sat night so today i will train in all black! feel much better today so will give it a go with a 5-6hr bike/run brick. probably should give the body another day or 2 to fully recover but unfortunately i dont have the luxury of adjusting my schedule to suit my training. goals today are to get some good race prep and not completely ruin myself for the next week. *** made it thru the build weeks in one piece. felt really good today so must have been allergies ailing me b/c if i was sick today would have sucked. now its 2 weeks of peak training (4 bike/run race sims) and then race week. sometime this week i really need a massage b/c my hammys and now my right azz cheek are f'd up. i am getting really anxious to pack that car and drive to AZ!!!! *** Watch IMAZ 08 on versus tonight. damn i am fired up!

still feel like chit this morning. i really need to break out of this funk b/c i feel like i havent had any energy this whole week. i still think its allergies and hope it passes by tomorrow so i can log a big day of biking and running. *** got a ong nap in today. thinking i may be on the tail end of being sick. had a slight fever today and with the air clear the last 2 days its hard to imagine its allergies bothering me. was going to get a massage today but had to push off a few days due to my body being achy all over. i blame this on the germ hive i just transfered to at work. after 6yrs working with the same 8 or so people no i work in out austin call center with several hundred people coughing and sneezing on each other.
