Brrr, this will have to suffice for a long run today.

Bike
  • 1h 00m
  • 23.00 miles
  • 23.00 Mi/hr

Spin bike at LA Fitness. Watched Better Call Saul on my tablet, which worked out well. I'm suspicious of the mileage these bikes report but I'll take it

Swim
  • 40m
  • 1667.00 yards
  • 02m 24s /100 yards

300 warmup
50 sighting drill
50 fist drill
100 practice flip turns
5 x 100 interval, rest 5"
7 x 75 threshold, 45" rest
skipped the warmdown

So i've been putting a bit of almond milk in my coffee each morning to give it a touch of flavor; finally read the ingredients this morning and noticed that there is cane sugar in the "milk". Ugh, I guess that's the end of that habit.

It's a** cold again. Thinking that we need to become snowbirds when we retire.

On tap for today, swim and hopefully a trainer ride, although I'll probably use the spin bike at the gym. Just not wanting to put the bike back on the trainer. It's like admitting that winter has won.

Strength
  • 30m

30" jumping jacks
3 x 12 squats, 20 lb db
30" jumping jacks
30" jump rope
2 x 12 zercher squat
30" jumping jacks
30" jump rope

2 x 12 leg curl, used cable
30" each jacks, jump rope, high knees, butt kicks
2 x 12 bench press
2 x 8 chinups

Need to ride -- way too cold and windy for outdoor riding though. Tri bike is off the trainer and has a new set of tires, and I'm not feeling motivated to swap out the tire for a cheap one that I can tear up on the trainer. Maybe this weekend.

Run
  • 42m 23s
  • 3.30 miles
  • 12m 50s /Mi

Another awful run. Legs felt better but still feeling crappy and bloated. Cleaning up the diet today and hope that a couple of days of Whole 30ish clears this up.

Strength
  • 20m

Miscellaneous strength stuff

A big thunderstorm rolled through right around midnight. Lots of strong winds, but it didn't last too long and this morning the cold front has moved out. I know it's March but winter can just go away now.

Run
  • 44m
  • 3.50 miles
  • 12m 34s /Mi

Well that sucked. Supposed to run for an hour and 20 minutes, doing 16 x 1 minute intervals. Calves hurt like h*ll and continued to do so for about a mile. I ate a lot of crappy (tasty but crappy) food this weekend and could tell -- felt heavy and clumsy. Ugh...Decided to just call it good.

Swim
  • 42m
  • 2000.00 yards
  • 02m 06s /100 yards

350 warmup, then 1650 time trial -- clocked it at 33:45. Was hoping to get that under 2:00/100 but it's close

Strength
  • 20m

Some general strength stuff
