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.

I did 2X15 @ Z4 (236 & 223 normalized power).  Also, 2X15 at 188 to 200 range (192 & 191).  For what ever reason my computer did not capture the results of the first 15 minutes of warming up.  Overall normalized watts is 197 watts.  This ride kicked my butt.  I still feeling tired from the travel this week.  My inter quads  cramped up on the what was supposed to be the third set of 15 minutes.  I cut it short and spun to recover. 

However I did get a brick run in.  I started off very strong, but my back was really cramping up.  My nutritrion has sucked this week and I paid the price.

RACE REPORT FROM LAST WEEK OUT!

I got up at 3:45 to start my trek with Danette back to the bay area.  We got to the airport with about 2 minutes to spare to get onto our 9 person airplane!  I had the isle and the window.  It was pretty bumpy--but not bad by their standards.  

We got back to the bay area just in time to run to Dennae's last set in volleyball and Layton's last inning.  I'm spent--no workout for me.

Volume wise, I'm in trouble this week. I need to bike, swim and run tomorrow big time.  Maybe I'll do a brick and then swim in the afternoon.

I ran along a country road with traffic going by at 55+ mile per hour in Artesia.  The altitude was 3500 feet so I took the run pretty easy.  It was about 85 degrees when I began the run this morning.  There was no humity, but it still was a tough run.  Especially with all of the crap that I ate yesterday.  Frankly, I had too much wine too.  But I got it done--even thought the speed was sub Z2.

Logan graduated today!  Woo Hoo.

It was a day of eating.   I started with eggs and bacon. Also, I had a bunch of donuts. Then, I got Long Johns Silvers fish with a root beer float.  For dinner I got chicken fried steak with mash potatoes and fried mozzarella. Also, I eat about a can of pringles too.  After dinner we drank a couple of bottle of wine.

Tomorrow, it is back to a normal day of eating (or at least more normal).

Strides Workout: Added in Race Prep Phase to build volume through frequency, not mega long mileage. Strides are short, fast runs done at a "comfortable sprint" pace (i.e. as fast as you can go without losing good form.)

If Monday was the 50 day swimming, today was the 200 day!   I felt really strong today. 


After helping out with Layton's baseball team and dropping Dennae at volleyball, I headed up on the Lamorinda Trail for my run.  As part of the run I did 6 sets of strides (paces of 5:30, 5:35, 5:21, 5:10, 5:48, 5:51).  I really pushed it about strides 4 & 5.  My right quad was really tight
