I felt like crap tonight. I was tired, uninspired, and I was falling apart mentally. I was in lane 1 and couldn't relax with Martie standing right there! I need to swim more than one time per week or I'm not going to improve my stroke. I cut the workout short. And my back is killing me after tonight. I need a massage....

I'm finally going to try to use my HR monitor as it was meant to be used. I wore it last night to try to get my RHR, but it didn't seem to work. I probably rolled over and hit a button. I checked it once sometime in the middle of the night and it said 50 bpm. I took an 8 minute average before I officially got up this morning and it said the avg was 52 bpm. Now I just have to do the MHR... uuggghh...

Worked upper and lower body and core at rec ctr weight room.

Way too much testosterone in there this evening. What is it with women avoiding weight rooms?

  • Elliptical Training
  • 10m


I think I'm taking the day off. My body's exhausted...
  • 55m 27s
  • 15.26 miles
  • 16.51 Mi/hr

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

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.... :)

  • 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!

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!! ;)
