Went with LuLu and Kaakon to ride the bears.  We started at LuLu's and headed over Happy Valley and then did two loops of the Three Bears. Tons of hill--6,740 feet of climbing.  I was working on staying in the aero bars.  I still need much more work, but I made quite a bit of progress.   Afterward we cranked out a brick.

I had TRI swim class today.  I worked on three things.   Not crossing over, gliding and hip rotations.  I'm just a slow learner.  I have had probably 6 different swim coaches over the years and things are finally starting to click.   And it isn't like any of them are poor coaches--it is just me!


I tried to do another bike time test.  I'm trying to hold my prior levels.  I this about the third time that I have blown up.  I think it is a message that my bike fitness isn't where it was.  I need to get humming.

Good swim this morning.  I ended up not having a pull bouy--so I just swam instead.  I worked on not crossing over my hands today.  However, I don't think I rotated enough based and my shoulders were a little sore by the end of the workout.  I still have a bit of the lingering cough from the travel.


I ran after work on the Moraga trail.  My hip was a little tight today, but did not bother me on the run at all.  I'm hopeful it is just blip.  I didn't push the stride like I did last week.  Strides were (6:14, 6:20, 6:31, 6:25).  I did 2X1 miles (7:42, 7:20) at Z4.

Ok.  So I'm doing a plan change up. Since my body is aching and my schedule is hell, I'm going swap Monday with Tuesday.  Today was the kids first day at swim--my wife and I went to watch and see our "summer friends."

Also, I started my month long Tri Swimming class.  The first class the instructor (Lisa) pointed out that I was crossing over on the hand positions.  I need all the help I can get and she is on top of it all!  I made the corrections and my stroke count seemed to improve.  Good stuff.

Swim was 400 drills, 6X75 (kick, drill, swim) and 10X50s.  I think the volume is pretty short with lots of breaks.  My goal is to work on form and push the aerobics.  I may need to get an extra swim in each week.

My hip flexors have been tight and cramping all week long. So I took it easy on todays run, which was on the tread mill (bech).  I only ran for 20 minutes and did not do any strides--which is where I think I stretched it out too much.

It will be a interesting week--I need to figure out how I'm going to get the Sunday workout in on mother's day. hmmmm. It will be a week of mixing everything up.
