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 …

Wicked Wednesday

Not great.  Not great at all. My issues started on Tuesday night.  I went to Taco Tuesday!  At Tijuana Flats. It’s a funky Florida place, kind of a “chain”  in our area.  on Tuesday, 2 tacos and a drink 4.99.  Can’t beat that. I had chicken tacos and they were lovely.  Sadly…. At about 3 …

Marathon Training Day 58

on the plan was a 20 minute cycle and a one mile run. I nixed the one mile run. The night before, I found myself waking up every 2-3 hours, and going back to sleep almost immediately…which is kind of one of the signs of overtraining.  It more likely is a sign of JOB STRESS! …

I did eventually get some sleep but it wasn’t as much as I would have liked. So Thursday, I kind of drifted …

And things just got REALLY really real

This was the first week of full on training after being ill.   It was GREAT. It involved a wee bit more swimming than I would have liked. I did not look like Mr cool hedgehog here. Work got crazy, as it has a tendency to do these days, so I also ended up doing …

Pool day, suddenly not so easy.

WHEW! Today was weights and swim 40 mins. So I got up nice and early and did a bang up job on the weights.  I was squatting, and lunging, and calf raising, and Ham string curling with the best of them.  In fact, I was actually sweating and catching my breath a bit, which is …
