This week has been a bit of a flurry/disaster bc I have taken so many damn days off work, I have to work extra hard when I actually am at my desk. More days off next week... am driving to North Carolina with my friend Trudy to visit T2, their second home... she and her husband retired early and now split their time between here and there. Am bringing a bike, so there will be plenty of biking to be had out there... am also going to swim with her Masters group and walk since one can walk anywhere!

Am gonna try hard to get this long swim in tonight.


Short Swim Tonight (2000-2500)
Short Walk Thursday AM or lunch (3.6 mile route)
Long Swim Friday? (3200-3600)
Long Walk Friday afternoon? (BIG MAYBE) 
Rest 1
Rest 2
Long bike Saturday with Chris up and around LG (80-85 miles/hills)
Short bike (25-30 miles)

Run
  • 53m 53s
  • 3.64 miles
  • 14m 48s /Mi

Hells bells it's hot and humid out there. I am a sweaty disgusting mess. Dripping all over the computer as I type this.

Took the orthotics out of my shoes. They have been giving me blisters for some unknown reason. Foot feels fine, so I will keep them out until I start to feel discomfort... then maybe I'll sort of alternate them in and out.


 

Wanted to ride this AM, but this happened ^^^ so I didn't.

Swim
  • 48m 32s
  • 2300.00 yards
  • 02m 07s /100 yards

Twilight swim is not as relaxing and tranquil as it sounds. The pool is actually less crowded on a random Tuesday at like 2:00 PM.

Regardless:

200 swim/kick/pull/drill (800)
300 steady
3 x 100 on 1:55
200 steady
2 x 100 on 1:50
8 x 50 sprint
100 cool down
--------------
2300

8:47 AM: Swimming tonight. Will dig up a middle distance swim and execute it at twilight swim tonight. Let's hope it doesn't rain!


9:26 PM: It's pouring rain and storming! So glad we got the swim in and avoided this:

7:15 PM: Worked all day like a lunatic. I wasn't supposed to be PTO yesterday, but I took the day bc the race was delayed and it was impossible for us to drive 5 hours home when I crossed the finish line at like 3pm. We stayed in Door County and had a leisurely dinner and went to bed early instead.
So. I had to work today and basically do 2 days in one. I worked about 12 hours today and I must say, I'm ready to call it a day! No workouts today. Will swim tomorrow. Our outdoor pool has twilight swim until 8:30 PM, so that works.

A long day, but I do feel better about my files and stuff, so that's good.

You know me!
