Apparently we don't have to come into the office this week. So that allows more time to train during lunchtime! How exciting. Therefore, I will do a long swim at lunch and then a short bike after work. Or, maybe a long swim in the AM. Wouldn't that be novel? Getting up to do something other than go to the bathroom. haha. We'll see.

Long swim = 3200 + Meters. Looking for a workout now.

Then, I think next week will be a recovery week. With a flattish century on Sunday followed by the U2 concert. How will I stay awake for all of this? And why does U2 only tour in Ironman years?


2:13 PM: Ummm yeah. Nothing has happened today. Got home late from CPCU meeting and didn't sleep well. Now work is eating me alive. I can actually feel my brain. It may start leaking out of my ears.

Was going to ride with the Monday night group tonight, but the radar looked sketchy, and I didn't want to drive an hour up there only to have the guys fink out on me again. It apparently rained, so I guess that was a good decision. 

 

Bike
  • 3h 36m 36s
  • 62.10 miles
  • 17.20 Mi/hr

This was super windy and super... chilly. Started out fairly pleasant with sun and some clouds... ended up gray and blustery and windy and miserable. Glad we were done when we were. I was done. Like D-O-N-E done.

Now wearing sweatshirts and huddling under a blanket.


Swim
  • 56m 52s
  • 2788.71 yards
  • 02m 04s /100 yards

Chris had 3000 on the schedule but I didn't feel like swimming that far since this was the most I've been swimming in like 2 years. I don't want to give myself a rotator cuff injury straight out of the box. Haha.

So I swam 2500M

400 warm up
9 x 50 on 1:05 ish (I did an extra one bc I hit STOP instead of LAP on my Garmin)
6 x 100 on 2:05 ish. (Sometimes I went on 2 sometimes I went on 2:10. Whatever)
2 x 200 pull with paddles
400 swim with every 4th breast stroke
200 pull with paddles
100 cool down
-----------
2550


FCUKING MISERABLE WIND AND RAIN AND COLD TODAY.

  • 2405.95 yards

2 x 100 on 1:55
1) 1:40
2) 1:45 AAAAHHHHH
100 cool down
--------------
2200 M


Working from home. Going to take lunch early and head to the pool to swim... like... 2200 or so. Then back home, finish working, and pick Chris up at the airport.

Woke up to 50 degrees and rain. Meh. Didn't ride bike. I suppose I could have gotten on the trainer, but... nah.


And that, my friends, is the first time in a long time I have swam (swum?) 2x in one week. Both times solo. I think I need to stop going to Masters and just do my own thing. It's not super motivating anymore and I don't like being beholden to someone else's schedule.
