I took back my broken fluid trainer back to Sports Basement. They swapped it out, with no hassles. Also, I finally purchased bike shoes and new pedals. Putting everything together and setting it up was taxing my mechanical abilities. I ended up doing a short 20 minute bike ride on my trainer at 10:00 at night. It was in a pretty high gear and I broke a nice sweat. I did a pretty good job getting on and off my bike with the shoes. But that was with the bike on a trainer! Any bets on how long it takes for me to fall on my bike?!?

Biked at 24 hour fitness on a stationary bike. I alternated between 9 & 10 on the difficultly. Nothing exciting.

My hip is hurting again so I decided to modify my workout a little. Instead of an hour swim and 30 minutes running, I thought I would do the long swim workout that I missed last week (I did a brick with TNT instead). My workout was 100 free, 100 kick, 200 pull, 3000 free (level 3) and 100 free cool down. This was a personal best for me. Whoo Hoo. This was a good test for Alcatraz. Now all I need is a slot.

I did my long, slow 120 minute run. Actually I did four minutes more. It was supposed to be a tempo workout, but my hip has been bothering me and I thought it was be better to keep the pace constant and not push it too much (like 80 minutes isn't pushing it :-) ) . The hip started to bother me about minute 50, but was able to push through it. I did the foam roller thing for the first time. It was like grinding meat. That thing sucks--but I could feel the stress on my body--especially my hip get worked out.

I ended up biking 75 minutes on a stationary bike today. I did 7 sets of 1 minute strides averaging 105 to 115 for each set. My total cadence today was 93. --------------------- I did my short 30 minute speed oriented swim at lunch today.

I did the TNT workout with my wife today. We did an hour bike ride followed by a 20 minute run. We did the Moraga to Canyon Road to Pinehurst ride. The ride had significant hills--which I was sort of suprised at how I was able to keep my cadence up during most of the ride. I did a negative split on the run (by 1 100th of a second--but it still is a negative split). My hip is doing much better. Total elevation gain of 1,755 for the run. Afterwards a bunch of us (Deb, Leslie, Laura, Danette) went to Sports Basement. We picked up two bike trainers and bunch of clothes. I almost swallowed my tounge when they rang it up and it was over a thousand dollars. After the 20% discount it was only $850. Looks like a couple of weeks of Mac & cheese. Over there I saw Coach Paul. He is two months away from completing the Iron Man event. He shared a couple of ideas on how to loosen up the hips and my legs. Overall a great day.
