Awesome swim, followed by some lake time and lakehome improvement shopping, finished with a spin on Fiona in the hood (yes,I felt the hip again in the wind on this easy ride. Grrrrr!). We had a fab dinner made on the green egg, then a walk with the pups.  Last but not least, a glass of red and boobtube with the neighbor. :)

Piss Damn Hell.  The hip grumped from the first 5' on the bike.  Got through the first and second set, but when the muscle(or tendon or whatever is off) twinged the third time, I bagged trying to hold the higher power, and just rode back to my car.  Did the brick and it was fine.  Ran better than yesterday, but it was a shorter bike, and cooler.  So there you go. 

Taking the bike to be adjusted on Monday.  Back to orginal specs damn it.

So, Scribner decided I wasn't pushing hard enough (with my adjustments to power for outside since my #'s are always lower) after the first set, so I pushed harder the second.  It felt good to go harder,but the last set about killed me.  My legs felt like lead. :)  I felt like I was really pushing with each leg to get to the power I wanted.  I don't like that feeling.  I'm not a grinder.  I like my 88-95 rpms.  Wondering if that is a function of the newer position.  Good news is that I felt the hip, but not in a painful way like before. 

Ran at Kensington where we parked, and it was hot and I was pretty tired, even with my putzing before the run.  I hit the hr targets coach prescribed, but man were the paces SLOW!

Moved Friday's wo to today due to a wedding shower on Saturday. Meant to run earlier, but chose to sleep in instead. :)  Slower than I would like for the hr zones, but felt much better overall than last weeks crapper long run.  Got fatigued at the very end of the last tempo set.  It was pretty hot by the time I finished around 9:35.  Drank 20 oz fluid, half water half g-ade

Bike Marshall at T-Rex race, cheering my head off and cowbelling for the bikers!

Track work was tough.  I thought I'd wake up early and get it done, but I chose to roll over and sleep.  HOT.  Really really HOT!  Oy! 

 

John picked me up at about 2:45 to head to the race.  Walked to the fabulous Trout lake and got in one out and back.  Changed and checked in to volunteer.  Had a blast ringing my cowbell (got 2 blisters tho. Boooo) and cheering my teammates, friends and everybody else.  They need to make some adjustments to the area we marshalled.  Very dangerous.  Need at least one more volunteer at that station. 

Got to see Loren and Diane W finish, chat up Dave, Steve, Julie, E, and Smoak!  A nice surprise was Flirt at the transition area...he was volunteering too! We helped break down and hit the road about 9:10.  Tired and sweaty and need to hit the hay!

Hard work in the lab today.  Hot as hell...literally.  I decided to do my TH intervals inside so there was no fluffing about.  I may even do my long ride and brick indoors.  Not that I want to, but I have paid for the lab,and if I end up riding alone, I might as well. 

Booked transport for the bikes back to the shop for Steve, Joanna and myself today.  Damn,this sport is pricey! 

Thursday I'm off to Grand Rapids to invest in my daughters bass career.  New bow...big bucks.  Sigh.

We have all our hotels, apt nights booked for Spain.  Now for the bullet train, and a rental car.  And deciding where to day trip to.  Exciting!
