Nice, easy ride.
Did the 5x10s each leg one-leg drills. That gets surprisingly tough at times!

Put the cleats on the new shoes today (Shimano TR60's). Holy smokes, those things are like a couple of happy hugs for my feet, lol! Super comfy, ride just plain felt good.

Power L/R Balance looks a LOT better on this ride.

Recovery swims feel nice, lol!

The second 500 with the paddles started to get a little tiring, and then the regular swim 500 at the end felt freaking effortless by comparison. I know it is supposed to, but it was almost shocking how easy the catch & pull felt.

Treadmill run in the movie room at the gym, again.

This run felt REALLY good. Posture, core, legs, hips, etc.... got a little hot & sweaty toward the end and had to slow the pace a bit as always, but nowhere near as much as past runs. A really good day!

Seriously, the L/R power thing is just hilarious now.

There's just no way I'm THAT unbalanced, lol!


Anyway, this was a good ride. Used the 'get out of the saddle 10s every 10m' approach and this was a MUCH more comfortable ride.

I kinda surprised myself with some of the power numbers I was seeing for the HR... good stuff is happening.

BOOM! Lotta PR's today!

Leg Press: 700# - 12, 7, 4 (found out today that this sled weighs 115... so this is really like 815#. Going to continue to just log the weight I put on the sled, however).

The leg extension one might be the one to surprise me the most here. I'm doing bigger sets there than I've ever done.

Rebuilt the back of Eliza's garage yesterday afternoon - solo - upon returning from the weekend of camping.... I was definitely feeling the effects of holding up 16' boards while swinging a hammer during this session.

The 100 BSE was a Godawful sloppy mess. I got a little crazy carried away with going for a monster turnover rate and couldn't really hold it together. The 200 BSE felt a LOT cleaner. Felt a nice groove going toward the end of the second 800, again.

This was a strange run, trying to find places to go around the campground that wouldn't kill me. LOTS of big ass hills, lol!
Overall, a decent run in beautiful weather!
