HIIT workout on treadmill. My Polar HR strap must not be working or it's the machine at Nomad. Not sure yet. Anyway, I did 5 sessions starting at 7.5 and on the 5th set 8.0. I don't believe I got anywhere near 90% on my HR, more likely 85%. So, next time I'll set the elevation to 3 and work up to 8.5 and where my Garmin.

We had Chris, Jim, Scott & daughter, and Tonga. I've never met Tonga and only corresponded via email. Super nice guy and it was fun having him there. He likes 8 a.m. workouts but has promised to make at least one of our 5:30 a swims. He now knows the value of our group swims.
My Garmin clocked me at 2250, it was a tough workout.

I downloaded my 70.3 training plan this morning. I like it, but the only way I'm going to make the cycling requirement is either spin or Trainer Road. I like biking on the road, but the indoor stuff will be a challenge, not to mention the running (bricks) that go along with it.

Used normal weight, Jose only had about ten people in his class. Glad I went. Lower back pain is still there but it didn't effect bp.

Ate way too much yesterday and my weight is going in the wrong direction. I'll make a point of getting back on target after this Wednesday. Body pump and treadmill work tonight. Raining very hard this a.m. and with my new rain jacket I don't plan to let the rain stop me from running in the new year, unless it's pouring down.
