Swim
  • 35m 16s
  • 1600.00 yards
  • 02m 12s /100 yards

4x400 on 10' (9:13, 9:08, 8:55, 8:00!)
-For the last set I decided I needed to feel what it is like to go 2min/100yd for a 400. It was tough for me though I finished with a few laps in me. Started the last 400 on 4/4 and halfway through went to 4/3 breathing then the last 100 did 3/3 breathing. If I can get under 2'/100 end of the year that would be too cool.

I need to challenge myself in the pool more like this...more informally as I hate structure to my swim sets. I'm sure I can get under 2'/100yd.

Extremely disappointing with the personalized M&M's RUSH delivery (mymms.com).  The website says 'Choose RUSH' for delivery by XXX' and in theory I would have got it in a few days to spare - nowhere did I ever find a RUSH delivery option and the only choice I had was std shipping in the dropdown which was too late for my needs.  AND this was after two days of email customer support.  I actually tried to call the first day and EVERYONE was in training for 'better customer service' - my lily white you know what - that means NO customer service.  I hate it when TV commercials gets your hopes up than totally disappoint.  They tell me now to call them.  Too late even if it works.

Sometimes if baffles me as to what makes a 'great' run. Today was one of those runs. Coming off of the longest run I have done recently Sunday, coupled with a strong/longer swim for me Monday, and add to the fact that I have been increasing the strength training the last week, I wasn't giving much hope that this would even be a 'decent' run. But it felt great. The minute I knew that this was a great run...I just kept the pace to the end.

Believe it or not, we filmed this video and a few others at the AMSSM conference in Cancun, Mexico a few months ago.  It was a tough few days of work let me tell you.

Just a 10 second hold for each rep.


 Oooohh.  Just missed my targets this month.

Off day.  On another note, if we happened to 'lose' the oceans, human civilization would die.  Oceans are the primary producer of oxygen....and since we are cutting down everything that stands on land...the oceans are all that is left to produce oxygen, something that we all understand that we need.  So why isn't the cleanup/containment treated for the oil spill treated more aggressively...like the 2 wars we are dumping $$$ into?  Not only is oil coming out by the millions of gallons but also possibly toxic, untested dispersant INTO THE ONLY RESOURCE THAT ENABLES US TO LIVE!  The outcome of our current two wars will pale to any outcome of limiting the ocean of the animals (algea/planktons) that produce life-sustaining O2.

My wife has noted that there is no environmental outcry from various groups begin reported on the major networks...and AC360 would definitely have them on if so.  How come?  Do we really take the oceans for granted?

MS: 10x200 on 5' - only because I had ten pennies to count with.
I ranged from 4:25-4:30 for these. Been awhile since I did a 2k'er. It made the 15' hot-tub totally worth it after.
