    great TR - Mount Hayes 2 30.9 km 01:15 15.4mph pace

    3 x 12 minutes at threshold. My heart rate was ridiculously high during the first interval so I did the second two at a lower power so that I wouldn't fall off the bike. Well, I did push a bit... read more

      You should check your RHR before you get out of bed each morning. You may find that it fluctuates for many reasons. It would help if you could identify what makes it go astray and decide how to attack the day's workouts based on that info. Good call on adjusting the difficulty. If the trend continues, I would take a rest day sooner than later. Try an extra hour of sleep tonight. ;-)

    great Angela Coughlan 1600 m 00:37 37:35 pace

    Early morning swimmies at the local pool. The lake and the 50m pool have spoiled me. Too much turning! Stupid walls.

  3. swim
    great Mountainside pool 2100 m 00:50 38:19 pace

    The rain kept most people away from the outdoor pool today, which meant I got a lane to myself. Woo! The lifeguards looked pretty miserable, but the pool was quite lovely once I got going. Solid swim.

    great Headon Forest 13 km 01:11 08:50 pace

      Glad you guys got the ride in before the rain. Don't worry about Sam. She never knows where you're riding anyway, so put all the hills in.

    great #5arunclub 8.1 km 00:45 08:53 pace

    Friday tempo, always tough because there's usually a hard bike workout Thursday night. 1.5k warmup, 5k @ 4:59, 1.5k cooldown. Pace bounced around a bit but I was more or less right for the 5k ... read more

    great TR - Red Lake 25.3 km 01:00 15.7mph pace

    great Dalewood 1250 m 00:29 37:04 pace

    great Post swim ride 14.7 km 00:31 17.8mph pace

    Two loops at Gullivers, which is roughly 2k. Time is also a guess since watches are hard to use, apparently. #userincompetance Great to swim with some of the tri club - and a great opportunity for ... read more

    great #5amtrackclub at Notre Dame 11 km 01:07 09:47 pace

    Me and about 300 seagulls at the track this morning (I'm just glad I didn't get pooped on!). Workout was 5 x 1000m @ 4:33. Actual 4:32, 4:30, 4:27(!), 4:31, 4:32. Kind of loving the track... read more
