Peak…week.

This week has lower miles than last week….but… it’s still….  exciting. Monday I had a swim.  This was not exciting. It was peaceful, and long and stretchy. I was still tired from the longer run on Sunday, so… Monday night I had a deep tissue massage.   It was a challenge to get through.  The …

Lesson learned…(again)

So today on the docket was a medium sized Brick workout. Bike an hour run 6 miles. I awoke at 4 am and stumbled/shuffled around.  Made an executive decision to crawl back to the bed.  Slept til 6:30 am. Felt better. The yasso workout is so tough that it followed me into the next day. …

Could it be?could it be?

That my legs have recovered from the torture I gave them recently. Seriously all that travel kind of screwed things up.  I really wonder exactly how Professional runners and other athletes deal with all the jet lag of travel before the big meets in Dubai etc.  I did not deal well with it at all. …

This morning, April Fool’s Day…I awoke, looked at the workout, saw it was a Brick.  Proceeded to post on Facebook- WITH ILLUSTRATION- “Happy Wednesday, full of Camels and Bricks!”  Several people corrected me which I saw after the workout. I was first convinced it was Wednesday anyway….then …

Brick brick baby brick…

As always…Saturday apparently is a brick.  I seem to always have a brick.  I kinda like bricks. this morning though, under a dense fog advisory, all I really wanted to do was stay in bed. Yeah, about the stay in bed thing.  I was in bed super early anyway on Friday and I was wide …

Brick Brick Baby…

Today was wonderful for training. I had a specific “not a brick” workout.  I was a little stymied by it because I really only had morning to workout.  My after work time was booked. So I did the workouts together but took the LONGEST transition ever. I did a 50 minute spin.  It actually hurt …
