Road Ride Zone 2

I rode for about 2:00. At first I was a bit anxious to just get it done, but I ended up settling in and really enjoying the ride.

30 Minute Swim Workout

I did a really easy 0:30 swim. I think I did about 1300 yd.

I had tweaked my back the other day and I also did not get enough sleep last night. So, I figured I nice easy workout was in order. I really enjoyed it. I think it was 100 warmup, 200 kick with fins 100 dolphin/ 100 flutter, 400 IM with fins, 400 pull, 200 cool down.

Multi #4

I had to lay out for a bit of the workout today. The set was 4 X 200 on 4:00. That would basically be a straight 800 as fast as I could manage it. I did 200 / 100 / 200 / 100.

I ran for 1:00 following the run 4 / walk 1 pattern. I was maybe a tiny bit slower than last week, which is okay by me. It's like a natural taper.

Road Ride Zone 2

I rode the full IronMan Boulder bike course today! There was an insignificant amout of variation. The battery died on my bike computer so I don't have any stats. But, I can say that it took about 8:23 clock time from start to finish.

After finishing the ride, I changed my clothes and drove home. I had some dinner and then I showered. Then I took Zen out for a walk. I feel good now. I'm so relieved that I was able to do the course and not feel wiped out. My hydration, resting and fueling strategy worked beautifully. I'll be perfectly happy to post an 8:30 clock time for the race.

Masters Swim

I was planning to swim 4000m today. I did 100m warmup because the Masters workout was 2400m and I figured I'd do 3 X 500m after the workout. As it turns out, the workout included a good bit of speed work that toasted me pretty well. After completing just 1 X 500m I decided it would be better for me to call it a day rather than just swimming a slow, weak and sloppy 2 X 500.

I rode into Solterra to pick up an aero water bottle. Then I went up Indiana and onto C470 to 6th.

Multi #6 (Brick)

I had to do the workout this afternoon because I needed to get over to the bike shop to get a new hand pump. Since I was working on client stuff in the morning and I was already feeling a little hungry before I headed out, I ate a Clif Bar and had a glass of Skratch. I can't say that I noticed a difference in the workout.

I rode for about 1:00 and ran for 0:15.
