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 …

Swim, Run, Swim, Run….

Back in the USA. I got home yesterday.  As is expected and is only natural, I received an email last night with the rest of the weeks workouts. I was asleep.  And decided after the alarm went off at 5, that I was tired. So around 7, I saw the email, and was like OHHHH. …

Rest Week

Of course a Rest WEEK, is not like a rest day.  I’m still working out.  Just very lightly.   This came at a pretty good time, I was feeling tired out, and also still trying to heal up my left quad leg thing. The bad part is that the pool is closed for the week, …

Build weeks continue, in which I am saved by massage therapy

Soooo…my right hip has been getting TIGHT…..every day tighter and tighter like a wound up top. My Massage Therapist worked on it last week, and I guess he succeeded in getting it ok enough that I ran through the week, and weekend.  This morning though, I really was not wanting to walk at all. I …

I’m an April fool!

Wow.  So training.  It’s become kind of regimented. 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 …

Saturday return of the Brick

Last Saturday…I had to spend in a conference for work. I think it may have thrown my whole work week off actually when I think of this week. In addition, it POURED buckets of rain which is atypical for Florida.  We have had an abnormally wet winter. Well. I can’t find any articles to back …

Coaching update.

I’ve been posting a ton lately, so folks I’m sorry.  This is in part, because I’ve been injured and just hanging around a lot and thinking a lot, so a lot of gibberish comes out here. Today though was CRAZY. I went to swim/spin.  I admit I wasn’t really in a super mood. It’s a …
