Summer of Weakness

I’m in a bit of a Mood funk. I just Feel BLAH. I am enjoying my training. That seems to be the only thing right now that I’m liking. Today I did the Swim/Run/Swim/Run workout.  The coaching person had specified exactly where to run…. So I ran around Panera Bread. Which turns out to be …

Loose end, or just….

Today I am feeling a little bit Blah. Training is going well, though I have had a few questions for my coach, which hopefully he will answer. I think I may actually just be reacting to the Mundane-ness of my life currently. It is a lot of work, go home, workout, walk dog.  I do …

Well. I got up on Tuesday in a state of “muddle-ment” On Monday I wrote abut my goal to organize and compartmentalize my life.  Well…   The above did not really happen. I knew on Monday that there was a problem at work.  I did a pretty good job at shelving it, but once I …

28 weeks to go….

I finished off this week fairly well.  Very SLOW long run…and a nice 45 minute Spin.  Yesterday I did a Spin Class (for an hour of spinning on the plan) and a 3.5 mile run. Lets start with the Spin Class shall we?  REALLY Awful.  I’ve gone to this class one time before.  I did …

Super fun week, with one little concern….

It’s been a great week. I was excited about my workouts, and I have enjoyed each and every one of them, as much as I could. Monday was fun.  Tuesday I did the workout with a friend and it was a new one to us.  It involved a lot of transition practices for Triathalons.  I’m …

So this week rocked.

This week was of course dubbed as “wicked Easy”  by the guy who writes my training plan. Pffft.  It wasn’t particularly difficult, but “Wicked Easy”  it wasn’t….   Mon June 3: either swim 2000 straight and easy or tread water 1 hour.        On Monday I ended up treading water.  My shoulder has …
