Well, the threshold repeats were wonky...wind made it challenging, but it still felt good.  Same for the AC repeats...windy windy windy! :)  Just could not make myself go to the gym though.  It wasn't raining and I just didn't want to do the dreadmill.  It is a great way to hit the proper paces though. 

Test week....bahhhh.  To the lab I go. 

*Holy Shit Balls!!!!  The usual threshold repeats for test week went out the window tonight at the lab, and that was one mother of a ride!  Super hilly course full of climbing and decents and no true recovery.  Wowza.  Standing...a lot!  I really didn't hold the vo2max stuff during the tough climbs...I did my run today (as it was scheduled for me) but usually it falls on Tuesday.  Soooo, the sticks were a tad used before the ride, but I was lead biker for a bit of the workout and ended up second on my side of the lab behind Scribs.  Not too shabby.  I really should have known it was gonna be tough...Ranger said it sucked (and he never complains!)  But I had no idea at that point the workout had changed from the norm.  I ended up (god help me) kind of liking it.  Maybe because I survived.  Maybe because I know I have so much climbing to do this year...nah...because I survived!!!*

Bike n Bitch at the lab...perfect.  Felt kind of tired today and my bum is sore from speed work and run stability yesterday.  :(

Hit REI thinking of spending my free $ only to watch my buddy Kate buy a purse AND some vibrams.  I hope the web site carries Oakleys....I'd like another pair and my check would cover half.  Fingers Crossed!

Packet Pick up with Jo and Paul in the evening, met some of the MPOY crazy fast boys, (saw some fraser peeps too!) and Jo, Paul and I had dinner afterwards.  A nice friday! :)

Had to take the slacker middle schooler early for math help (grrrr) so I decided to get my hard run done and swim with Kate.  It was kind of nice not procrastinating all day to get my run in!  :)  And it went really well, which I wasn't too sure of since I never really do speed work in the am.  I was hoping to suprise Kate at the pool, but I saw Terese and she bailed.  I ran into a high school friend, so I yapped with her instead of rushing to swim. :)  I had a great swim too.  I had to finish the workout I'd copped out on yesterday, and it went well.  Now I hope my legs don't punish me for running hard so close to a long run. We shall see come Saturday!

easy run from home. HR was totally jacked in the beginning of the run. :( Wish the garmin would get it together!

Nice run from home.  Switched out the workouts though...no way can I do vo2max today.  Didn't drink enough water today and almost had serious calf cramps last night.  Major twinges but didn't happen.  Have a trip to AA too to see Miss Kaity perform...didn't want to press my luck on leg cramps! :)
