30 minutes with Andrea at the lab pre ride...did that damn fire log pose (getting better at it though!)...owwww!

Swim went fine...met Kate and Terese, waited 20 minutes for a lane, then got to it.  It was a recovery type swim, and was good. 

Got lots of stuff done, food made and Brian picked up from track.  We had dinner then I went to the lab, got half of yoga in and started to spin.  After the first (and only) vo2max set, I had my weird heart rate palpitations.  A new pr...longest time with a rapid heartbeat. :( Booooo!  I didn't have the garmin on, but it was very elavated for about 15 minutes, then just high and finally calmed down completely about an hour and fifteen minutes after it started.  Total suckage.  I know it's related to perimentapausal bull shit.  I've been so happy to be sleeping through the night and not sweating and flashing myself awake of late.  This pisses me off, and I know there's nothing that can be done.  I've had them lying down, walking, running, sitting.  Thats why I just kept spinning.  I knew it would stop in it's own sweet time.  Just pissed that it took soooo long to settle down.  :( I've had the doc do ekg's just to make sure I don't have an underlying issue, so at least theres that.  Boooo!

core work...as prescribed

Nom nom nom...hill repeats!  I don't like them, they are hard, but I got STRONGER today.  Yeah baby!

Dropped my better half off at the airport, went straight to the gym and got my run on.  No dreading, no waiting till 1 to finally get going.  I decided it was foolish to waste so much engergy avoiding something I'd end up doing anyhow.  I'll avoid laundry instead!  :)  It was hard, I was a sweaty mess, I rocked my skirt and BT RAWK SQUAD shirt, and I love getting stronger. 

The day is going to be productive...time to get things done!  Oh, and SUNSHINE is AWESOME!

OU pool with Coach Bonnie and team...filmed in water, drills and 1 200 at the very end

Biked, ran and swam...updates in the morning...I'm full of Joannes red wine and pooped, plus (bahhhh) it's a school night!
 

*Foggy easy peasy spin with Pammy and Jules.  Was glad I had the underarmor top and my team jacket!  The sun finally came out with about 15 minutes left in the ride.  But it is soooo spring.  The spring peepers were just a singin' their sexy song! LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing the spring peepers sing while I ride! It makes me happy!!! 

So I went from knickers and underarmor to a running skirt and sleeveless top.  The heat affected my hr on this little run!  My tummy got a bit grumpy too, and when I decided to run through the little tiny trail by the school(which was toooo muddy), a tree bit me, but who cares!  Sun, wind, warm.  Yessss!

Then after some food, I went to OU for my first team swim with Bonnie.  We started from square one with very basic drills, got ourselves taped above and below the water and did a 200 to finish.  But the best part is that I got pulled over before the swim on campus, and DIDN'T get a ticket.  So deserved one, but the luck of the irish was with me!  Thank goodness! :)*
