  1. RUN
    great Treadmill Hills 3 mi 00:32 10:43 pace

    Walked a little to make sure everything was ok, and it was, so I decided to do a little hill work. I needed something to concentrate on besides America's Got Talent.

    great Endurance Cycle Class 32.7 mi 01:20 24.5mph pace

    It was kinda weird going into this class fresh (no workout this morning). Wheee taper! Today was interval day!
    Some warmup (about 15 mins)

    great End of ITU Men's World Champs 18.65 mi 00:50 22.4mph pace

    Goal was some work, but not killing myself. Came up with a set and did it while watching the end of the Men's ITU world champs. Woooow.... good stuff!

    great Pool - 3x300s 1464 m 00:30 32:25 pace

    I've finally picked out my favorite lane at the pool - it's the one that gets the most sun (and it freed up just as I was getting in - win!). Today, I got the first little bite size nibb... read more

  5. RUN
    great Brickie 4 mi 00:41 10:14 pace

    Since we quit the bike a little early, we ran an extra mile. Not quite the whole difference we wanted to make up, but close enough.

    It may have been the awesome weather, but my legs felt so... am... read more

    great Headwind Both Ways 35.27 mi 02:20 15.1mph pace

    Woke up this morning and it was super grey, overcast, drizzly, and... um low 60s. WHAT? I have no idea how to handle feeling cold. Summer in Texas is hot, or hotter. We waited until mid-morning... read more

    great Smoking Something 1375 m 00:31 35:41 pace

    When I looked at the original plan for this lunch swim I laughed out loud. I must have been out of my mind planning a tough swim 3 hours after a race pace brick. Scratched that out and wrote in &... read more

  8. RUN
    great Power Hour 5.75 mi 01:00 10:26 pace

    I had two goals this run:
    1. Eat a gel. It's really hard for me to do solids on the run, and I've discovered that I make major excuses with chews (they're hard to get out of the pac... read more

      Haha the gel drama is hilarious. I'll call this experiment a total success.

      Gels have caffeine in them?? I had no idea ... but then again I'm pretty much exclusively a short-distance runner.

    great Not Smashy Smashy 16.65 mi 00:46 21.7mph pace

    Coach (me) definitely felt the pressure of this being the last week before taper and loaded us up with a lot of smashy smashy. I did this knowing every day was going to be a process of checking in... read more

    great Dark and Easy 2 mi 00:23 11:20 pace

    Easy running near the lake, found a good 1 mile loop and enjoyed running after sunset. Finally flush(ish) on miles for the week after missing Tuesday morning's easy hour. Sleep and time to d... read more

    great Slow 2 Fast 1 2250 m 00:53 37:53 pace

    Lake swimming. Goal was to do lap 1 and 2 easy, and lap 3 faster. I finished lap 1 and 2 in 17:45, and then tried to bust my butt. The result... 17:30. I can either take it as a) it's not ... read more

    great Kinda Not A Brick 3 mi 00:33 11:05 pace

    Supposed to do an easy hour this morning but that fell apart when I couldn't fall asleep and slept through my alarm. I didn't intend this to be a brick, so I took a 10 minute break in be... read more

      Good 3! I don't know which player you're talking about.....but that fame doesn't interest me at all. Sounds annoying.

    great Pool Butt Dragin' 2100 m 00:43 32:57 pace

    Not sure if I'm being punished for only swimming once last week, but this was difficult in the way that I don't often feel in the water. Ah well. They can't all be awesome. Things... read more

    great Eyes on the prize 5.82 mi 01:00 10:18 pace

    I was supposed to do this off the bike this morning, but we didn't. Figured I'd give it a go after spin class, and if I could pull it off, it would be better training anyway.
