Week 6, Q3, and some extended riding.

Got the ride in earlier and watched the movie 'the Hangover'. Funny and amusing, but NOT what everyone made it out to be.

Kids had an unbelievable Christmas.  Anna got her first bike!!  Santa brought Brandon a real-working helicopter.  Very Good Times :)

Most people start Resolutions on January 1st.  I'm starting mine TODAY.  My quest to hit my Dream Goal Weght for LP starts Today.  It was nice knowing you junk food.

Week 6, Q3 tonight while watching the Ranger Game.  May get a short run in beforehand.  Monday starts my 'Official Structured Ironman Prep Phase'.  I'm going to start the Beginner Ironman BT Plan Monday, and then transition it to the Intermediate BT 20 Week plan on March 8th.  That's the Plan.  God-willing, it will happen.  Hopefully in 2011 I will have the potential and funds to hire a Coach.

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.

Wednesday - December 23

Bike

  • 20.03 miles
  • 20.00 Mi/hr

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.
