I did my Mount Diablo junction ride (2300 feet of climbing) this morining. I did it without an buddy.  It started slow, but I got the entire loop done in 1:24--which is pretty good. I probably gave back about a minute on Wiget dealing with cars by the school. 

I ran out of time for the brick run--which I might do today at Layton's baseball practice.

Swim class today.  200 swim, 100 kick, 200 pull, 8X 75 (kick, drill swim), 25/50, 50/100, 100/200.  I was really watching the form until I got to the 100/200 where I stopped rotating and focusing.
-----------------
I need to reflect on yesterday's learnings.  
-----------------
Ok, I overheated yesterday.  It was a very tough day. I pushed it on the bike (ie. intervals per the workout).  For the two hours I only drank 1 1/8 of an water bottle.  I did not have enough water pre-ride either.   Once I hit the brick, I started at a 8:10--8:20 pace pretty quick.  My game plan for bricks should be Z1 (ie. 9:30) for a couple of miles and then hit the Z2 level (8:10).   Instead, I tried to run other peoples run and I blew up.  

I need--

1.  Better hydration in the morning
2.  Be more disciplined on drinking on the ride.
3.  I need to get & use electrolites.

I did the Danville to Highlands loop with the iron team.  I ended up pushing the bike and did a decent job staying in the aeros.

On the run I started out running a 8:30 mile on the way out and blew completely up on the way back. It was 97 degrees and I completely crapped out.  Live and learn.

I had intended to do a second loops--but I had completely blown up! This was the first truly hot day this year.  Boy I got to get this heat thingy nailed down.

Today was a mess from  workout perspective.  I was up at 6:00 to get ready for sherpaing the kids around as Danette was in Montery.  We had swim club sign-up, baseball, volleyball, photos...  I did eak out an hour workout.   The month of May has not been friendly to my bike workouts.  Between New Mexico, Montery, San Diego I have miss much of my longer rides.  This ends next weekend when we have our Northern California Epic weekend.

Tomorrow is a long brick day.   2 hours ride, 1 hour bike, 2 hours ride....

Today was the day after the dead concert. They sounded great, but had a lower energy level than Sunday's show.  I did not get in before 1:30 last night.  I feel run down.   Danette is off to Montery for Shelly's graduation.

I went down to meet the Forward Motion people to swim at Shadow Cliffs.  I got certified for the cap. Time and distance are purely an estimate. Afterwards I went out for pizza with Layton and Dennae at Straw Hat.  I spent the evening sharing stories with Aaron and the Chavezs.  Good time.

I did the long run of the week on the iron horse trail.  Tons of bikers out for bike to work day.  2 sets of one mile Z4/Z5 (7:32, 7:17).  The last 49 minutes at Z2 was 8:36.

Total calories burned 1,768

1. Liquid Calories (ideally 4:1 ratio of carbs:protein), must be consumed within 15' of run.
2. Elevate Your Legs - 1' up for every 15' run.
3. Repeat in PM if needed with light stretching. Proactive Proper Run Recovery

I had swim class today.  My stroke is feeling stronger, but my kicking is weaker. I am in a lane with a couple of strong kickers and they dust me!  Good thing to work on.  However, I get them on the pulling and swiming.  My stroke count is up slightly, but I'm much faster.  I didn't feel like I did a good job with the front quadrant swimming today though.

After work I grabbed the bike and did the three bear hills out and back from Happy Valley Road.  Good hour of cycling with 2,138 feet of hills.
