Recovery Miles.

Wow.  So Sunday I did my ever so slow 12 miler and then spent the rest of the day kind of recovering.  I woke up a few times in the night and found moving about to be challenging. I knew I had 2 measly miles on the schedule.  I debated doing them in the pool…doing …

Wow I’m really quite tired

So I did Swim/run/swim/run on tuesday. Wednesday I ran 4 miles.  It did not go super well.  To start with my garmin died mid run. Luckily it stopped working at mile 2.6 in a 4 mile run. It was an out and back.  So to do the correct distance, all I had to do was …

Comedy of Injury errors.

So.  Here I am Injured. I am better than this guy….I mean, I have stopped running before this. So.  Yesterday I swam about 3000 yards.  My friend and I both went to the Lake swim.  It was her first time, she seemed to love it!  I actually found having a friend along made it easier …

Transition Tuesday Yet again

Yesterday was Transition Tuesday. It was a tough day at work.  I am feeling kind of exhausted and very concerned about how things are going at work.  Work lately dominates my mind, which is not a great thing.  But I do have one of those career things, rather than a “job”  so it’s kind of …

Sloppy Saturday

Our miserable cold rain continues.  It is all relative.  We had a quality retreat today and our guest speaker was from the IHI and said “You all had me at Florida.”  He is in Wisconsin and did not even mind the rain, though really,  If I was a tourist from up north, this rain and …

tired out

today’s workout was a simple 3 miler and a 50 minute spin.  Specifically noted on the plan as “not a brick”  So I did the run at 7:30 am.  It was not that easy.  My Garmin is acting strangely, and at one point I was jogging along and it stated that I was doing an …

Ho Hum….

So it looks as if I am in rehab mode. Today I looked at my workout as I was blowing into the gym.  It looked dinky.  I changed out of my adult clothing into my play clothing and went to renegotiate. (Ok so this video is kind of cute and funny, negotiations with my coach …

Training training.

On Wednesday after accupuncture, my pain in my adductor went away. It said Sayanora.  Adios.  etc. Amazingly even though I kind of tried to beat it up quite a bit over the weekend, it never came back. I did tweak out my lower back really a lot. New Massage guy worked on it on Monday. …

Week’s end.

This was an unusual week for me. I actually did run a bit, and I also did a lot of swim and cycle.  But really it was a far cry from my recent weeks of 40 plus Miles per week. I felt pretty dispirited about this set back.  It seemed unfair.  Life, of course is …
