Ran with several of the kids from camp.
True rest day today...after trying to wimp out and take one yesterday :-)
Won't be posting much this week. Son#2 and I leave for youth camp Monday. Don't think they have internet access. It will be a great camp with a "wilderness" theme. We'll be caving, canoeing, rock-climbing, sleeping in tents, hiking, etc. It's on the northern edge of the Ozark's and should be beautiful country. I'm giving a Bible message each night and my son will be a "camper". Should be a great time together.
OK...got my run in afterall. Planned on 10 but my right hip started getting really tight after 5. Hoped it would work itself out, but just kept getting worse. Decided with the race two weeks away I better not risk an injury. After a little cooldown and 15 minutes of stretching it felt better :-)
Easy ride around the neighborhood before our swim. Distance is estimated.
Estimate on time and distance. Swam with a couple of friends in their neighborhood pool. We talked too much :-) Good time hanging out though...
Whoo Hooo...met a goal this morning. Wanted to do a set of mile repeats with each being under 8:00...
w/u - 3/4 mile with stretching
c/d - jogged 1/2 mile and stretched
Time includes 3min recovery between each repeat.
Had to run the last quarter in 1:50 to keep it under 8:00...whew...that was a good workout :-)
At the pool with the kids...
w/u - 600
sets - 11 x 100
c/d - 600
includes 30 to 40 second recovery between 100 sets. Felt really good in the water...funny how you can wake up with no energy and then have a good workout (?)
Plan on swimming over lunch.
I have NO energy today....trying to figure that one out. Really dragging.
Lot of work to do the next 3 days...getting ready to speak at a youth camp next week. Won't be able to swim while I'm there, but will be able to get some good runs and bikes in. It's a wilderness camp, so we'll be sleeping in tents all week, hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, caving. Should be a great time. I'll be speaking in an outdoor chapel once-a-day. Looking forward to it. Pray for me if you think about it :-)
