I feel bad for the people at Cool Running, the site just got gutted.

Not a particularly awesome workout.  I didn't really plan properly going into today, my nutrition was waaaay off. I wanted to do 40 or 50minutes, but wouldn't have had the energy.

Baklava (sp?) weather. Cold, snowy, windy...not bad for a run today!

Missed some workouts last part of this week due to some family stuff.  Snuck one in today though.

WU: 200
MS: 1000yd time trial (2:26) I didn't really 'push' it. Just went continuously and tried to be conscious of the two drills I've been working on. Surprisingly after the 1000 yards, I wasn't that winded, I could have done 600 more.
CD: 200, Hotub.*

*About that hot-tub today...if I do a 1000yd time trial for my T-pace, I EXPECT the hot-tub to be FULLY functional, and even hotter than other days.  I had no bubbles, only 1/3 of the jets worked.  What a let down.  I did all that work for nothing! 


I have a gripe about my Ohio race director, HFP Racing.  Don't get me wrong, they put on great races but it seems that every year their website gets worse.  I do like the clean look of it this year, but that is where is stops.

This year the are going with for registration instead of themselves, which is fine.  The problems I have is that the HFP racing website hosts ABSOLUTELY no race information except for the date.  The Active registration page doesn't have nice formatting, no pictures, no quick links to different parts of a race...try reading the directions or the listing of race distances!

Though not an Ohio race series, Setup events has THE BEST race website.  All race directors should take notes.

It seems like ever since the Tri-One-O-One series, HFP is trying to do too much or grow too fast.  I hope their races stay on par this year.

I'm liking the focus of the closed fist drill.  I have never before thought of using more than just my hand as the paddle, this drill really gets me focusing on the fingertips to the elbow as the paddle.

I need to go to bed, I just deleted my post that took me 20minutes to figure out and write.  Then when I re-read it, I totally read the wrong distance of plan they were starting...WHICH WAS IN THE VERY FIRST SENTENCE...don't you hate that?
