  1. swim
    great lesson with coach 1250 yd 00:45 63:21 pace

    Worked on kicking after my standard warm-up. I was taught to kick like I am kicking a ball, with thigh dropping and knee bending followed by a quick knee extension to straighten the leg; then bring... read more

    great first AMYMSA swim meet of season 1000 yd

    Overall, I feel great about this swim meet. My level of fitness is at its peak. I set one personal best today, and came very close in two other events. The fourth event...well, let's just not ... read more

  3. RUN
    great Keystone Lake loop 3.98 mi 00:33 08:17 pace

    Ran with Dan, which rhymes.

  4. walk
    great Field Trip 3.31 mi

    Had an awesome day with students. The highlight was a bald eagle that sat in a tree while we ate our lunch.

  5. RUN
    good SVC Dupre to fitness trail 4.85 mi 00:40 08:14 pace

    Felt quite good. My goal was to run 40 minutes. Also, I saw my friends Dan and Geoff both had medium-length runs with a pace of around 8:00 so I wanted to see if I could get close to that. I actual... read more

  6. swim
    alright workout with coaches 2050 yd 01:00 51:30 pace

    Did a string of 100s on 1:30 and it beat me. Then I did four 125 IMs on 2:00 (with 50 yards of one stroke and 25 of each of the others). I am proud of myself that I could do that. I also did a stri... read more

  7. VELO
    good campus to Beatty Flats 12 mi 00:42 17.0mph pace

    Took the long way home from work, and happened to pass another professor going the other way on his bike.

  8. VELO
    good Quarry to Airport to campus 12.6 mi 00:46 16.4mph pace

    Had a nice ride before work. The only issue was they did the "oil and chips" treatment on about 3 miles of road, and it's the part of my route where I can normally speed down a hill.... read more

  9. walk
    good construction site 1.3 mi 00:23 17:41 pace

    My quads and hips are still sore from Thursday's run. Tommorrow is a bike ride--no excuses. But tonight, just a walk.

  10. swim
    great Wilmerding YMCA 2080 yd 00:45 38:04 pace

    Swam with Shannan; Jamie was also there, and I had to share a lane with an old guy. He did surprisingly well keeping to his side of the lane as he did backstroke. His feet definitely kicked to much... read more

  11. VELO
    great GAP trail to get ice cream 22 mi 03:15 6.8mph pace

    Rode with Shannan and the girls. Very enjoyable! Plus, I rescued a snake.

  12. swim
    great neighborhood pool 750 yd 00:20 46:55 pace

    Fifteen minutes of continuous swimming followed by a few laps and then some play. I had a lot of fun doing underwater somersaults, both backward and forward. I got out of the water and as I dried o... read more

  13. RUN
    tired GLHS to Kennemetal to WPNR to... 12.56 mi 02:13 10:35 pace

    What do you call someone who repeats something that didn't work very well the first time? Answer: Stupid. Uggh. I didn't learn from last week. My run today wasn't too bad in terms of... read more

      You ran further than I biked - that should count for something!

      Don't loose heart. Figuring out nutrition so your stomach doesn't go bad is the hardest part of long runs. Still, you had a decent pace.

      That is the beauty of this web site...Misery loves company. It appears all of us had a very crappy run these past several weeks. Just remember, these things happen to keep us humble. We can use these bad workouts as a valuable learning tool gleaning insight into our own personal machines. Besides, this is a good sign. You are not peaking too early!

    good college pool 2100 yd 00:47 39:23 pace

    1x700
    1x400 with hand paddles
    Then a lot of IM work, with special attention to turns.

      Nice swim! Is your race going to be in a pool or open water?

      Ah, but to explain my work on turns, I am also on a competitive swim team, so I need to train for pool swimming, too.

      Nice! You're a great swimmer. I need to learn to flip turn. It would be better than the sloppy thing I do now. At least most of my races are in open water. Maybe this is something I will practice on this winter.

  15. swim
    great college pool 1000 yd 00:20 35:11 pace

    And since my workout was ghoing so well already, I figured I'd do a "cool down" swim at the end. But I couldn't go slow. I wanted to go fast. (I had to share a lane with a slowe... read more

  16. RUN
    great treadmill 1 mi 00:08:11 08:11 pace

    I was feeling awesome and decided to hop off the stationary bike onto the treadmill for a mile. And I even ran fast.

  17. VELO
    stationary bike 15.3 mi 00:45 20.4mph pace

    I never trust the mileage on a stationary bike and that is true here, too. However, this was a killer workout for me. I set it on the "hill climb" setting, which is a series of progressiv... read more

  18. RUN
    alright Kennemetal loop 2.15 mi 00:20 09:18 pace

    I no longer get the "brick" sensation in the legs after cycling, but my body does feel tired.

      I have found when you finally get rid of one pain, another shows up in a different place to annoy you for the next several weeks. And then again and again. Yet..we press on!

    good Solomon Temple Rd to end 19.9 mi 01:19 15.1mph pace

    Climbed Chestnut ridge, descended, then did my more typical circuit to the quarry and back. Felt pretty good, but I think I need to ride more than two days this week, even if it's just for a f... read more
