I took a sick day from work today due to so many appointments that are scattered all over the city. Took my car for an oil change this morning. Have an acupuncture appointment for my shoulder late morning and a MRI for my head scheduled this afternoon. Still trying to keep up with emails for work. I will probably work a little this evening.

Brick run.

I had a slight headache this morning, but I felt okay enough to be up at 3:45 and on the trainer at 4:00am. Another day. Took some Tylenol. Headache was gone by the time I started the run. Lots and lots going on at work. Trying to keep up and do a good job.

Last big week and weekend of training before taper. I am very happy I will be racing Louisville for the last time the race will be in August. Doing #10 where I did #1. Getting excited! Moving the race to October will change the entire vibe of the race. Part of Louisville's charm is surviving the heat and humidity.

Monday - July 28

Swim

  • 3200.00 yards

200 swim
200 kick

2 X 1000
200 cd

Strength
  • 1h 00m

40 minutes at lunch & 20 minutes in the evening.

Swam this morning in the pool instead of doing the ocean swim after work. It is not a good idea to swim in the ocean the day after a big rain storm, especially when it has not rained in such a long time. There is the risk of bacteria and other nasty stuff that washes off of the roads.

Another Monday.

Sunday - July 27

Run
  • 2h 00m
  • 13.10 miles
  • 09m 09s /Mi
I was walking to the pool for a swim when it started to RAIN. It has been so long since we have had rain and it is really needed. I was still going to swim, but then it started to thunder and they closed the pool. :-( I checked the lane availability later after the storm moved out, but there were not many open lanes for lap swim. I did take a great nap while listening to the rain. I have missed that. :-)

Went to dinner with Mario - always a nice time.

Saturday - July 26

Run
  • 42m 18s
  • 4.80 miles
  • 08m 48s /Mi

Brick run - feeling the heat. Hope my body can adjust to the Louisville temps in a few weeks.

Bike
  • 4h 17m
  • 77.90 miles
  • 18.19 Mi/hr

Otay Lakes ride. Hot! Perfect prep for Louisville. Felt good.
