Busy day...had to run before the trackmeet and heading out to the lab, and wasn't sure what pace I was to be running...TTT has short, oly and half races!  So I just went tempo for them.  No stitches at least today. :)

The bike was weird too...only 2 others riding indoors (it was gorgeous out) and I ended up dong the hard work but not really focusing on the cadence drills.  Brian and Andrea were talking to me and I was ok with that. I did the same drills on Monday and they were kinda boring.  I know they are good for me, but yeah.  I didn't do um today.  My bad.  ;)

A couple of issues on this run...tired legs at the beginning, bathroom emergency (thank goodness I was just back at Duck Pond and the potties( at 1:20 in which forced some extra ar/en running, and another side stitch in the second tempo set that I had to walk through.  Pissed that I can't seem to "do" the prescribed workout.  Happy that I made it to the bathroom! Really happy about that. Also, using the 305 hr strap gave me accurate data, so that was good, except I did get chaffed from it.  Focused on cadence when pace slipped and that seemed to help quite a bit.  Oh, and my fingers got pudgy and swollen again.  I know I didn't hydrate today very well before hand.  

Nutrition for run: powergel just before running, 10 oz infinite ,8 oz water.  on run.  I don't know if the infinite running is giving me an issue or my gut is off generally as I'm "trying" to eat better.  Just want the stomach to settle down and the stitches to stop!

Not a good run...out too fast, serious side stitch 2/3 into tempo, had to walk. :( Finished out ok. Stupid hr is wonky yet again! Grrr


 

Two weeks from right now I'll be starting a half IM, after 2 oly's and a super sprint at the TTT.  Gosh, I hope I'm ready.

Off to celebrate my Mothers Day with the hills of Kensington and ILRA.  3 hours to ride and then a nice brick run afterwards.  Then, I hope my family decides to feed me and help me in the garden or basement.  Which ever area I decide to tackle.  Or perhaps a nap will be in order! Naps in the afternoon sun are seriously underrated, or rather, under executed in my life!

 

*Update...not ready for TTT.  :)  Ugly run, but pretty good feeling ride (didn't hammer...just rode)  Wore the tri shorts for the first time and it was, um, yeah.  Ow.  Fiona's saddle is pretty hard.  I'll ride a few more decent saddle time rides and make a decision after that.  HR strap was giving janky readings once again.  WIll try switching the battery and see if that helps. Grrr.

It was GORGEOUS out today.  A beautiful day to be riding and running.  Saw Batman, Cathleen, Jane and Sunshine.  :)  Had a blast riding with Ranger.  It's been a looooong time (IMFL?) since we've ridden together outside.  Very nice time today! :) 

When I got home, the garage was organized, the computer was moved off the counter, the beds had been weeded, the doggies had been bathed, Dave was preparing dinner and I had flowers and a couple of cards.  AND he listed the sound system we replaced in January on Craigs list!  Woot!  I felt like a spoiled princess.  A really nice surprise that the family took care of some issues around the house that were starting to get on my nerves. I'm a lucky girl, yes, yes I am!*

Weird swim.  Had to do the wu and breath control in the warm short lap in the main pool, then did the paddle sets in the FREEZING lap meter pool.  Ran in to Patrick, which was nice.  Seems like no matter where I go I run into a teammate.  LOVE THAT! :)

Dinner out with Kaity and Dave...mexican and too many chips.  It was good though. :)

New protocol bike test this am.  2x20 minutes.  I've got Kate Diane and Linda to suffer with.  Gonna be an ass kicking time. :)

 

*Holy Sufferfest Batman!  That new test blows!  Kate quit half way through, Linda had an athsma  attack and I was left testing the second set all by myself.   Poor Dale turned around to encourage me late in the second set, and I yelled at him to move his head...really loudly, and without using my manners. What a bitch!  BUT...he was blocking my view of my watts and I was in the pain cave and NEEDED the numbers to focus on.  I did apologize profusely after the test.  Kate encouraged me to push hard and hit 300 several times in the last couple minutes, which I did.  No way I'd push that hard with out encouragement that late in the game.  Love love love my teammates! I dropped a crapton of watts, but I knew that would happen.  On a good note, I was the least nervous/anxious I have ever been for a test.  I was actually perky this morning.  I blame the extra rest. ;) 

I got permission to attempt the threshold run from Coach, and I got to run in my new running skirt in a sleeveless top!!!!  Oh the glory! :)  It was gorgeous out there!  I ran at Stony, and while the threshold repeats were not as fast they should have been, my hr was TOTALLY in threshold during them, and quite a bit of the rest of the run.  I walked during the second set for a bit, then went at it again, and walked the RI instead of running en to get a little relief with the hr.  It was hard work, but I was rewarded with seeing 3 deer, a blue bird and the cutest little blue merle sheltie!  Oh, and SUN! :)*
