Crazy brick action:
Did 2 of the larger loops, and then fussed around in T1 for 1:15 so I could get my fuel belt out of the fridge, throw on some shorts, change shoes, talk to wife quickly, etc.
Mile 1 - 7:25
Mile 2 - 7:41
Mile 3 - 8:16 (it's all up hill from 2.5mi to 3.75mi)
Mile 4 - 8:08
Last .6 - 4:14
No HRM data today, cuz, well, I couldn't find it to wear it.
Immediately followed up the run with mowing the front lawn for 30mins. I earned that subsequent shower.
Hub ride was good. We had the biggest group ever. FOr the actual group ride portion of this training session, the average was about 19.5mph. slightly slower than normal. but i still feel as though it gets easier every single time. but again, i regret to say that my HR was cranked up quite a bit sometimes. i'll get the stats later.
Low-effort run at a moderate HR this morning. meant to do it last night, but had a marathon 3+ hour meeting about coaching volleyball next season.
anyway, i just ran the usual loop around the hood. weather was perfect this morning. i stretched for a few minutes after my cooldown walk.
got the Hub ride planned for tonight.
w/u - 200
1x500 @ 8:50
1x100 @ 1:37
1x200 @ 3:30
1x300 @ 5:47 (doesn't seem right)
1x400 @ 7:37
1x100 @ 1:24 (ummm, yeah, that's a PR by about 11 seconds!!!)
c/d - 100
I think it's worth noting again that I shattered my previous best 100m time. I could consistently come in around 1:37. But on this particular sprint, I ripped off a time that I'm ecstatic about. So that should keep me happy the rest of the day.
Decided on Friday that my wife and I would run the local YMCA "Connection Run" that goes from one Y to the other. Since 1999, I have done a total of 1 5k. I believe it was in 2003. I didn't know what to expect from myself, so I really didn't set any expectations. That worked out pretty well.
got in a little OWS practice out at the lake this weekend. it was easier than last time. i didn't swim enough to call it much of a workout, but it definitely helped add to my comfortability in the OW situation.
