Woke up with a bad headache and that turned into a migraine later. So, nothing today. Hopefully, I'll be okay tomorrow when I want to run this 20-miler. More then.

Out to Mountaindale and back again

  • 16m

Normal routine of mini circuits and supersets, 2 sets each, primary muscles, 15-20 reps if possible, RI :30-1 min

Due to work going over and other personal life issues, only had enough time to do the recorded activities. So skipped the swim for today and not a lot of time to ride due to the time I got started. And just went out to Mountaindale again. Got back as it was early twilight. At least I got out.

Lately, I think the cold weather is starting to get me down. I may also be reaching being overtrained as I'm losing some interest in doing my workouts. That's usually a sign that I may need to take a few days off. It's just that I do have a few events still to do for the season. Still, it's often better to just take down days versus trying to continue training when you're feeling ho hum about doing the things you enjoy.

Tomorrow, I'm taking down day and perhaps will do something on Monday. Just too much going on.

Sunday: Helping out at women's sprint tri in the morning and then will go to the C&O to do a LSD 20 miler in prep for not only the marathon the next week but the 50K at the end of next month.

Monday: May just take a down day or do something light

Tues: Will see how I feel. Since I have a tri coming up on Sunday, it's probably best I continue my workouts this week. More later.

Out to Mountaindale and back

Stats taken after ride and before dinner, %water 60. Nothing special today and I got just a tad bit later start as I had to take care of something work-related before going out on my ride. And because of that, cut it short and only got out to Mountaindale before turning around. I'll tell ya, the cold weather is setting in with the days getting shorter and I can tell this is ALREADY getting me down. I can't take advantage of the nice daytime temps mostly due to work. Might change that during my two telework days and see about getting out sooner just so I don't fall into a rut.

Tomorrow: Running in Middletown with tri club folks

Fri: swim, weights, and bike

Sat: either an early morning run or day off as there's a LOT going on and I won't have time during much of the day for anything

Sun: Volunteer at local women's sprint tri and then 20 mile LSD run on the C&O

Mon: either off or short bike

Essentially a repeat of Friday. Just changed the swim sets a bit. Also took the run quite a bit easier. I didn't tape my left big toe and for some reason it bothered me. Didn't really understand it. It doesn't hurt, just bothers me. Will tape it for next run.

Nice Fall evening to be out too, but I just didn't enjoy it quite like I should've. Hopefully, riding tomorrow evening will be a bit better. Seem to be a bit tired too.

Wed: Evening ride

Thur: Might join folks in Middletown for an evening run

Fri: if I run on Thurs, this will be swim, weights, and ride.

Sat: complicated day and I'm either going to take it off or I'm going to have to run in the early morning

Sun: helping out at a sprint tri in the morning and then I have to do a 20-mile LSD run, probably on the C&O

Mon: if I run on Sat, rest day. If not, easy evening bike.

Planned rest day. Back at it tomorrow!

The Half Full Tri run course and more

First day of Fall

Stats taken after getting home, before dinner, and after some..um.."liquid" carbs ;), %water 59.5 ( think %BF and this is a trend reading as pants are definitely looser lately, probably just dehydrated for the weight). As planned, brick workout on the Half Full Tri bike and run courses. Ah, definitely appropriate that this is the first day of Fall 2013 as a cold front passed by yesterday and temps were only in the upper 60s with mostly to partly cloudy skies. Decided to wear light arm warmers for the ride too although might not have needed them. A bit windy but I actually think it was windier last week. A good number of riders out today, though most not really on the course but intersecting ride routes. Now, halfway, met up with another rider going my way and passed him just before the S curves on the course. We actually were going about the same speed and while I thought I was getting ahead of him, he kept up for the remainder of the ride. Finally caught me up a hill and I remarked that I wondered how long it would be be before he caught me. His name was Kevin and from Mid Maryland Tri Club. He did Savageman last weekend too, though he didn't get his brick. He'll be part of a relay team doing the Half Full as well. Well we were pretty close to the end, he was going straight and I was going left. Back to the car. Hmmm, last week my cycle computer gave out not too far from the end and today I recorded 2 more miles. Kinda thought it should be near the same distance as the course.

On the run course now and this time I did the route correctly vs coming up short last week. The remainder of the route still goes through the neighborhood but then through Font Hill Park. Nice park on a path to wind through, but then...come out and greeted by a hill - whoa! So, there are 4 fairly tough hills here with the last one being the toughest as it's long and gradual. But, I feeling quite well on the run today and moving along! So, I'm quite pleased with the pace for this distance. The actual course is a bit shorter, so hopefully, I'll either do just as well or better.

Tomorrow is rest day and I do need it. Plan rest of week on Tues.
