First real snow of the year...getting psyched for the 1 hour 10 minute run today.

Post's like Fishrcutb8 really do warm the heart.  It's good to see stuff like this and is a reminder of how special this place really is and how we really strive to keep it that way to the best of our abilities.

Look at that...I have definitely exceeded my 2007 training totals.  I'm actually (knock on wood) have a really balanced plan for my current lifestyle and strength training...I'm actually doing great on it. SBR 2x per week, Strength 3-5x per week.  Not really sore, long swims aren't a drudgery as I don't have to swim 3x per week like I have tried in the past.  I'M IN PERFECT BALANCE.  Plus you probably haven't seen me throw up a 1hour 10minute run since...ohh...never.

I'm still a slow triathlete...but it's working!

Oh beautiful rest week this week!

Wednesday - November 12

Turned into an off day, no better opportunity to get the leaves to the curb before it starts getting colder and rainy.

Tuesday - November 11

Bike
  • 45m
  • 12.46 miles
  • 16.61 Mi/hr

Indoor. I have made some adjustments to my bike to allow a more upright position on the trainer as as it alleviates all of my shoulder issues...unfortunately it seems that the Adamo Typhoon - which was comfortable in aero, is very uncomfortable in the upright position - even after several tilt adjustments.

Monday - November 10

Swim
  • 45m 15s
  • 2000.00 yards
  • 02m 16s /100 yards

Countinuous. Lost some energy the second half. Could've been the weightlifting before or not enough nutrition beforehand...probably both.
