  1. RUN
    great RI / TT / PBT / NEBT 13 mi 01:43 07:55 pace

    Cool, but comfortable, think it was about 32 when I started, so sill shorts weather! Two good nights sleep and I feel sooooo much better!! Worked on keeping it easy going out, then put the pedal do... read more

  3. RUN
    alright outdoor intervals 6.5 mi 01:00 09:13 pace

    Nice being outside, but turning around at half-way point and running into the wind was kind of a shock and may have slowed me down a bit for second half. Still a bit fatigued and issues from challe... read more

      Life stress definitely takes its toll, for me at least. Return pace looks great considering the fatigue and extra wind!

  4. swim
    good 800s 3200 yd 00:58 31:54 pace

    Was really looking forward to this - get some good distance, no "hang on the wall" set. Think I am still recovering from Sunday's long run - felt a bit sluggish. Did last half of las... read more

    Sluggish TM 4.5 mi 00:38 08:26 pace

    Legs sluggish on the 'mill and really tough to roll out of bed and get to gym this morning, but I made it (a bit less distance than normal). Tough week at work, needed to sweat it out. Finishe... read more

    great lunch swim 3050 yd 00:59 34:02 pace

    Felt amazingly well after long run yesterday, not as fatigued as I expected. Maybe I should regularly plan on swimming day after.

    Great temps and wonderful sun. Nice to go for a long run instead of shoveling snow!! Got out on some plowed roads with less traffic on a Sunday morning - very pretty with snow on the ground. Great ... read more

    good TM intervals 8.1 mi 01:07 08:16 pace

    Not bad for first set of intervals on TM, I remember them being harder last winter, but I purposely started easy because of bad memories. I guess speed on TM is in miles / hr - conversion to pace i... read more

  9. swim
    alright short swim, tired arms 2550 yd 00:45 31:03 pace

    arms and shoulders so tired from shoveling had to cut it short, only 2 of the 3 x 800's. Barely able to hold the pace I'm aiming for. Glad snow is melting fast.

      Oh man...how much snow did you get? We didn't get one flake here in NH. :) Normally we get hammered! I give you kudos for getting that swim in!

      Got about 20", shut down entire DC area for a couple days. Areas north and west got more (up to 42" in one place in WV). Many suburb schools have been out since Thursday.

    good TM tempo 7.5 mi 01:02 08:11 pace

      Great swimming! Sounds like a plan. Small world. My father-in-law used to live in Reston before he passed. Never swam in the lake though.
