  1. FIT
    good Abs and arms 00:40

    Too wet to bike to Lowry. Stayed home and played with the weights.
    I'm going to have 2 days in the water this weekend, anyway--no need to overdo anything right now. At least the sesamoiditis I... read more

  2. VELO
    good Commute to/from Lowry 3.66 mi 00:21 10.5mph pace

    Headwinded on the way there, flying on the way back. That's the way to go, y'all.

    good Swim-bike brick part 2: Spin ... 00:53

    Had a snack after my swim, and felt better once I got on the Spin bike. A little logy at first, but finally was able to ramp up the effort to a high level by the end of class.

  4. swim
    alright Swim-bike brick part 1: Lowry... 1000 m 00:25 40:14 pace

    After being in my scuba certification course all weekend, I was pretty gassed today. Trained anyway, just took it slow.
    I spent the weekend feeling pretty bad about myself (I am not naturally good ... read more

      No matter how slow, 1000m is a good swim, Karen!

      Thanks, Bob! Would have done more if I'd had more time. Doing 1000m continuous (like today) is something I treat like a LSD run. Never want to do these at race-pace.

  5. swim
    good 2 pools, 1 workout 1250 m

    The smart-mouthed little attendants at the front desk claimed the Natatorium was closed for swim team practice when it **wasn't** (liars! gah!), so I ended up doing the first 750 meters in the... read more

    great Spin class 00:54

    I can't believe I fought doing a Spin class for so long (years). I love this mess. Getting pretty good at it, too...as far as being good at riding a bike that can't go anywhere with music... read more

      So good for you, compared to driving.

      And so much cheaper than having a car, too (I don't have a vehicle). All that money I'm not using for car payments, auto insurance and maintenance will be turned into 3 different trips this fall!!

  8. RUN
    good Run/walk intervals on the levee 4.06 mi 00:54 13:18 pace

    The boyfriend came down to TXC to drop off some PADI stuff for me (I'm starting my scuba certification this weekend), and we went over and ran at the levee. What a beautiful evening! I love ru... read more

  9. VELO
    good Round trip to Lowry and back 3.58 mi 00:21 10.1mph pace

    Just like it always is. One change--mosquitos ate me alive as I was both racking and unracking my bike (racks are in thick, lush grass, and in the last 2 days, we've had an absolute explosion ... read more

    This was good. I can feel my fitness increasing. Despite making similar effort to last week, HR stayed lower overall until the very end. Should pay dividends on the bike leg of the tri.

  11. swim
    good Swim leg of swim-bike brick 1250 m 00:29 37:51 pace

    Added 250 meters on, as I did fine last week with bricks whose swim distance was 1000m.

    Instead of swimming 500s, which is what I usually do, I did these as 250s, with 60-90 seconds rest between.

  12. RUN
    good Sweltering intervals 3.77 mi 00:50 13:15 pace

    The heat index was 112. Seriously. No wonder it was hard to breathe.

    This is the same race-pace workout I've been doing all summer (however I usually try to *not* do it when it's this ... read more

      Way to get out there and run in that awful heat, Karen. You did very well!

    good Commute to and from Lowry 3.5 mi 00:20 10.5mph pace

    Same as it ever is. Except that the heat index was 105 for the out leg at 4:20. Damn, but I hate SE TX this time of year. I do love that evening tailwind coming back, though.

    I do wish the Spin instructor would do different classes on different days of the week. This was my first time with the Thursday group. They are nicer--but less fit--than my usual Wednesday group.

    Another 1000m breaststroke practice--this time up-tempo.
    1st 500m continuous in 11:15
    2nd 500m continuous in 11:00 (which was goal for 500 #2).

  16. VELO
    good Commute to and from Lowry 3.5 mi 00:20 10.5mph pace

    Biking to the gym (and back, of course) apparently makes me the oddest duck in Texas City. Seriously. People in my Spin class think I'm bizarre because I don't drive to the gym. Uh, peopl... read more

    great Spin class at Lowry 00:50

    This is the second half of my swim-bike brick. Full-on Spin class after a decent swim is a great adrenaline rush. (I hated Spinning when I started it, but it has done wonders for my fitness and my ... read more

      Good to see you posting again! I've been on a bit of a "partial break" myself. Still posting workouts, but my commenting has been sporadic.

      Been a while. I notice a lot of people not posting or commenting much anymore. Either people are worn out or the site has. I mainly just use the site for my original purpose of logging workouts.

      That was a great 5 miles, Karen! You have pretty good speed. When you get in your best shape, everybody watch out! And you sure recovered quickly from that Tri. Good luck in preparing for your 10k.
