Harder to Kill and More Useful in General

Tuesday - October 10

I think I'm taking the day off. My body's exhausted...

Monday - October 9

Bike
  • 55m 27s
  • 15.26 miles
  • 16.51 Mi/hr

Hmmmmm....
I'm starting to think the GPS is broken or something...
This can't be true...
I'll take it! :)
About 2 minutes into the ride my thighs were calling out to me "You aren't serious? You're making us do this again?!"
I was driving to the Rec ctr for a swim and some strength training, when, about 2 blocks from home, I looked at the blue sky and thought to myself "You're crazy for not taking advantage of this weather." So I turned around, threw the bike in the back of my Honda Civic and drove to Mendon Ponds Park! Great Day!!

965' ascent

Sunday - October 8

Bike
  • 59m 37s
  • 15.91 miles
  • 16.01 Mi/hr

Check out my pace!!!!!!!
YEE HAW!!!!!
Drove to Fellows Road Park and took the bike out Fellows Road to Penfield Rd then east past Gananda, etc., and back again. I thought for sure my pace would be something like 13 or 14 mph. The hills were killing me at the end and I began to hate every second of the ride, that is until Blues Traveler's song "Thinnest of Air" came on my MP3 player. That song kicks a**! :)
Anyway, did a total of 1215' of climb. Don't know if that's impressive or not, but it certainly kicked my butt.

I'm soooo pleased with my pace.... :)

Sport
  • Orienteering
  • 42m

I think I'm going to take a break from this sport for a little while. Or at least try to find a babysitter next time. The kids are getting too whiny and whimpy for my liking. Does carrying a 33 lb. 3 year old on my shoulders on trails and up hills for almost a mile count as strength training?
Beautiful day, though!

Saturday - October 7

Run
  • 20m 58s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 44s /Mi

Holy moly, I keep shocking myself!

RR finished.

My husband thinks a reasonable goal for me would be to work up to a sub-20 minute 5K. But then I thought, instead of wanting to get faster, I think I'd rather work my way up to running 10K's. Gee, is that my first inkling of wanting to do an OLY someday? Probably. But I don't have serious goals for that until I get a better bike... And until I can maintain a decent bike pace for a sprint tri. Anyway, I thought I'd put that out there in BT-land - Kam31's very first contemplation of working her way up to an OLY!! ;)

Friday - October 6

Thursday - October 5

Swim
  • 1h 25m
  • 3608.92 yards
  • 02m 22s /100 yards

Int/Adv. workout tonight.
Last one to finish, but hey, I did it! My arms felt like jello. This new weight training stuff is killing me... I missed the times on the Pull part of the workout by about 10 seconds each time. I made the times on most of the Sets, but by only about 5 or 6 seconds, if that (I don't always do a great job watching the time, though). I added about 10 - 15 seconds to my rest between sets.
Still a lot that I have to really concentrate on while swimming. It seems like it's at least as good of a mental workout as a physical one. Feel like I'm improving though.

Wednesday - October 4

  • 1h 00m

Worked core, upper and lower body.

Sport
  • Elliptical Training
  • 10m
