    tired 12 * 400 3 mi 00:29 09:39 pace

    The group was doing 20 quarter mile repeats tonight. I didn't think I'd do all of them, but I didn't expect to tank so hard and so fast.

    Ray had us skip the warm-up, and go rig... read more

      At first glance I thought you had 20 mile repeats! That is a lot of speedwork for anytime, let alone race week. Plus heat and humidity. Nice job getting 12 of those in! As they say, the hay is in the barn.

    alright Blue Dolphins class at OSB 1320 yd 00:30 40:00 pace

    Time and distance estimated. Pretty much everyone in the class is doing the Chicago Tri this weekend, and I think we were are feeling lazy and sluggish. After swimming out to the quarter mile buo... read more

    alright North Branch Trail 20.08 mi 01:30 13.5mph pace

    Not a bad ride, but I was feeling tired and my stomach felt a little upset. Can't believe the Chicago Tri is next weekend!

    good lakefront run 6 mi 01:06 11:04 pace

    Not a bad run on the lakefront trail this morning! I never get tired of the view of that lake. I still feel out of shape, but it went a lot better than my last few weekend runs. I'm looking... read more

    good 3520 yd 01:29 44:15 pace

    Longest swim ever! I was tired when I was done, but I definitely felt like I could keep going. I took a few backstroke and breast stroke breaks, and didn't worry about pace. I did get a min... read more

    I did a three quarter mile warm up, and a quarter mile cool-down, and six half mile repeats with various recoveries. The half miles all ranged between 4:38 and 4:54. I was happy to keep them all ... read more

      good job with the pace today, and getting the extra repeat in at the end.

    good CTC / Blue Dolphins Class at ... 1760 yd 00:45 45:00 pace

    Time and distance estimated. Like last week, the storms stayed away. Despite the grey sky, the water was warm, with just the slightest waves.

    We started out with triple over switch / side balan... read more

    I don't know if I'll every truly enjoy the run leg of a tri, but this went much better than I'd expected it to! I missed a run leg PR by one second. Doh!

    I really really wish I could claim this was the 12 miles that the race said it was, which would make my bike speed 17mph and a PR for the bike leg. But three of us had our Garmins tell us that the... read more

    I had such a fun time doing the Iron Girl sprint tri with my running pals today! It was exciting to be there for Brook and Lilian's first tri ever.

    good To and from Ohio Street beach 15 mi 01:20 11.2mph pace

    I felt much calmer on the LFT even though there were lots of people out and about. I think early on Saturday mornings, the path etiquette is a little bit better.

  14. RUN
    alright North Branch Trail brick 1 mi 00:11:20 11:20 pace

    I probably should have eaten a Gu or something while I was biking, because I felt a little nauseous. I felt better after taking a short walk break.

    Another not so great workout tonight. On the bright side, this was good mental training for me tonight.

      Thanks for sharing. I have similar feelings comparing last summer to this summer. The tough days make the good ones all the sweeter. Nice job getting four miles in!
