Monday, Monday

For the last few weeks, Monday has been a crappy workout day. After a long weekend of workouts and family activities, Monday is a drag. Today, I broke the cycle. I hit the pool and it felt great! It was a slow workout (as planned) so I took it easy and really enjoyed being in the water.

In a couple weeks Monday will become my day off.. finally.

imc training week 18

Wow. Week 18 already. This is the halfway point! I feel good. In fact, a 10 hour week feels normal, so I guess it's time to turn up the intensity. I've learned a lot in the last month. I'll have to put in a post, too much in my head now to throw it down.

Here's the week:

Bike - Commuter 13 mi 1:00:00
Bike - Road 37.18 mi 2:18:23
Bike - Trainer 0 mi 2:05:00
Run 25.41 mi 3:39:55
Swim 3400 yd 1:30:14
Total Time 10 hrs 33min

A good week.

IMC Training week 17

Felt MUCH better this week. Had a great weekend for workouts, perfect weather. I missed a couple pool workouts which was a bummer, but I think next week the schedule will support a bit more activity.

The data:

Bike - Commuter 20 mi 1:35:00
Bike - Road 65.75 mi 4:22:02
Bike - Trainer 0 mi 1:05:00
Run 28.75 mi 4:19:16
Swim 1250 yd 0:30:00

Total Time 11 hrs 51min

Zoot Energy's Blew

After 2.5 weeks and a couple longer runs, the Zoot Energy's fell apart at the bottom eyelets. Different sides on both shoes, so I know it's not a fluke. It's too bad, they were comfy. So I took them back and picked up a pair of Brooks Defyance 2's.

I hope they last a little longer - like the 450 miles I got out of 4 pairs of Brooks Radius that they no longer make. These are close, so I'm optimistic.

Flu. Felt like death. Didn't do much after Monday and Tuesday's workouts. Worst week of training ever.

Total Time 1 hrs 15min
