core work...planks bicycles, pilates roll ups

Swim was ok today...focused as best as I could on glide and finish.  Swoosh Swoosh Swoosh.  Was moderately successful. 

Next up..Vo2max at the lab followed by a short zone 1 run. 

*Wow...that sucked.  At least yesterday the recovery before the 3:00 block was 2:30.  30 seconds is not much time to recover I tell ya.  I ate an apple on the way to the lab, and that was not my best decision.  Felt like I could hurl a few times, but didn't.  My watts weren't where they should have been either, but the pain was there and I was bustin' my ass, so I'm happy with my work today. 

After the bike I went potty and hopped on the treadmill for the run.  Ow.  My legs haven't done a brick in a looooong time and the shins didn't much care for it.  It took me about 20 minutes to get my stride feeling normal!   I ran in the zoots with no socks...not too sure if I like it or not.  I'm not nutso in love with the shoes anyway, but I figured I might as well try it.  This du on Saturday is gonna be interesting.  12 minute miles sounds lame, but I have more fish to fry tomorrow and it was how the coach wrote it.  No complaints from me! 

I'm gonna sleep like a dead woman tonight.  That is after I get the bassist to her lesson and back, and register her for orientation and sign up for lodging iat U of M this fall.  Tissue please!*

PS...never go to Costco after 3 hours of working out...it's kinda expensive that way!

Rough morning and a bad attitude.  Vo2 max pretty much took that out.  Sooooo wanted to quit.  From the very first set.  Soooo wanted to.  Almost did...twice.  But I just could not do it.  Couldn't face the rest of the day as a quiter, so I didn't.  Whew.  Soooo glad I didn't.  That was one hell of a mental and physical work out today.   I had a much better afternoon after the evil run was done and lunch was had with the Fabulous Smoak.  :)  We had a large helping of laughter and I smiled all afternoon.  Thanks Sue! :)

Sooo, I tried out the nerd helmet today.  Boy I was lookin' spiffy in my UA top, fraser trisuit and running tights on top with that aero helmet!  LOL!  It was pretty windy so I was glad for any less drag I could get.  Even if I could have won a dork award wearing it. 

After last nights crapper drilling in the pool I was planning on taking Brian to swim for a little while just to do really basic drilling after his late trumpet lesson, but we needed to get him new shoes (outgrew the old ones!) for his concert on Thursday.  I've chosen painting my toes and early to bed instead.  I'm still sleep deprived from the trip and last nights late workout.  Bedfordshire, here I come!
