The question is: will this make me faster?

Mowed the backyard today. Frontyard will have to wait until tomorrow, as it is getting dark earlier. That is the part of fall that I don't like so much.

Another great morning for a run - 55 degrees, light wind. I was pushing pretty hard today, but still under control. I didn't feel too tired at the end. This is the longest I've run at sub-7-minute pace, probably ever.

Another great morning for a run. It was about 58 degrees and calm at 6:30. I'm very happy with this pace, and I think I'll probably be able to do the 1/2 marathon at this pace as long as I continue to build in the next month.

Well, I beat my PR by 4 seconds. It was a great morning for a ride. In fact, it was actually a little chilly when I started out at 6:30. But once the sun came up, it warmed up just enough to be perfect temperature (60-65 or so). I was considering going longer, but I'm having a hard time convincing myself to ride longer than the 40K of the Olympic distance tri. I suppose going longer will help build my biking endurance, and make the 40K seem easier. I should probably do a 30-40 mile ride at least once a month. Maybe I'll get into that sometime. One other comment: with today's ride, I crossed the 1000 mile barrier on my bike training so far this year. I thought that was pretty cool. 1000 miles is a long way. I hope to do a 9-mile run tomorrow. I hope I didn't wear out my legs too much today.

Friday - September 7

I thought about running today, but I took the day off after running the previous 2 days. I plan to do a long ride tomorrow, and a long run on Sunday.

Miles, miles, miles. Nothing new to say today. Nice morning for a run again - about 65 and a little breezy. Splits were 20:05 and 20:24. Colts vs. Saints tonight. I'll be cheering for the Reggies (Wayne and Bush) to get lots of TD's against each other's team's lousy defense.

I consider this to be a solid run in the heat today. I felt pretty strong, having taken yesterday off. I think I'll probably be without a swim this week. My pass to the Bell Center expired today, and I didn't get the chance to get over to renew it. I think 4 runs and a bike workout will suffice.
