Garmin turned on and then right off. Battery must be dead. Oh well.

Maiden Voyage for the Asics DS Trainers. Mixed reviews. They did break in after a couple of miles. Thought they'd provide a little more cushioning for a 9.8 oz trainer.

To All My BT FRIENDS ... You Know Who You ALL Are -- HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Week 6, Q2
92 RPM AVG!!

Felt crummy all day. Felt fatigued and crappy, running around doing errands, watching my daughter, trying to close out some orders before the year end. The plow came by and dropped another four foot wall in front of my driveway. It was a tough day.

I forced myself to get on the trainer and I just felt great and I ended up nailing all 3 Intervals and probably had my best trainer effort to date. After 6 and a half weeks, I finally hit all my intervals with the proper intensity and left just enough for the last interval (which was so painful). What a nice way to end the day.

My kids are hyper as all heck with Christmas coming, and are driving me CRAZY!  I was going to Swim this afternoon but my daughter doesn't have school. 

Drainer tonight.  Week 6, Q2.

Bit the bullet and joined the gym. Just for 3 months. They have a cycling class too!

Wanted to Swim but my shoulderblades are still too sore from shoveling and pull-starting my snowblower!

My snow blower was on the fritz -- of course -- all day yesteday.  Was outside snow blowing and shoveling from sun up to sun down.  Shoulder blades are killing me!  Here are some pics of the kids and dog enjoying the snow: http://beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/photos/photo-thumbnails.asp?albumid=13641

Yes, that is my mini van and camry, covered!

    We got 22 inches of snow.  Kids are going beserk.  Our cars are completely covered in snow drifts.  Looks like I'll be riding the trainer again.

    Z1-Z2 Run in the Snow. Need to slow down and run this pace more often if I want to increase my weekly run volume to 30+. Also need to keep my legs fresh for my Bike Intervals.
