    The girls' daycare was only open until noon today so I decided to take the day off work and get a long ride in this morning. Only in the 30s to start and 42 at the end so was a bit chilly. Ha... read more

    I felt like a pretzel for a good part of this one but it was a great stretch particularly for the hamstrings and hips.

    Back to some core work with Fiji. Love the feeling of getting through a tough section just a little bit easier than the last time.

    Level 3 yoga/Pilates with Kim Wilson. This one's a nice mix of strength work and stretch. Gives you a good burn, stretches you out, catch your breath and repeat over and over and over again.

    great PF Recumbent 9.25 mi 00:35 15.9mph pace

    All of the upright bikes were taken so went with the recumbent bike for some cross training. My glutes may be feeling that later. TGIF!

    Too beautiful not to head outside. Still a bit windy but compared to winter, a walk in the park. Chatty walk with Darlene. She saw the surgeon about her knee last night. He gave her several opt... read more

    The 7 yo DD wasn't feeling well this morning so I stayed home with her. Got lots of cooking, laundry and cleaning done already this morning and had time for a long yoga session.

    Some recovery work/cross training at the gym. Kept it pretty easy. Went up and down a set of ladder intervals and some 30/30s to occupy the brain.

    Seated Whole Body Hatha Flow with David Proschyn. A nice stretch for the tight glutes and hammies. Some more rolling tonight and everything should feel good as new :)

    The swag. Actually one thing I did think was nice - they gave a fleece throw instead of space blankets.

    Easy out and back to round out the training cycle. Rain was nice enough to let up and only be a light drizzle. Guess it's game time!

    Final bit of speedwork. Wish they were all that short and sweet although I think it would have actually felt easier with a longer warmup. 2x1600@7:33. Splits were 7:31 and 7:33. 50 degrees and b... read more
