  1. RUN
    blah Temp-NO 12 mi 01:25 07:05 pace

    Womp Womp. Legs just didn't have it tonight for the tempo run. Granted the rain and headwind didn't help, I don't think it was the issue though. Feeling a little beat up tonight, but... read more

      Sorry about the blah legs:/. Long cycle is RIGHT. Can we just race already? Still a sweet pace for a 12'er!

    good Mish Mash 16.32 mi 02:18 08:25 pace

    This was actually a two part run. 3 miles this morning while waiting to cheer my sister and her hubby on at a half marathon. I wasn't feeling great with allergies and just general blah so I de... read more

  6. RUN
    good Easy Auto pilot 7.63 mi 01:00 07:54 pace

    Easy aerobic hour of running. Splits were all pretty spot on with each other. Beautiful afternoon, nice to just unwind and not think for an hour.

  7. swim
    good Turtle laps 1000 yd 00:20 35:11 pace

    More turtle laps to shake out the legs for active recovery. Gorgeous day to be at an outdoor pool, sun was perfect.

  8. RUN
    good ROC half: grinding gears 13.1 mi 01:31 06:56 pace

    Decided to do my tempo on the half course tonight to make things interesting. 1 mile warmup, 10 mile progression tempo and 2 mile cool down. I normally pride myself on my progression pace abilities... read more

      Damn, not bad for an evening workout, even if it sounds like it was a struggle to stay consistent.

      But look at that pace, girlie! I felt much the same way about mile repeats yesterday. Was either too fast or two slow--your description about a teenager learning to drive stick is so accurate! #teamloo

      Wow. I'd ignore all the uneven pace stuff & just focus on how much ass you kicked with that time! :)

  9. swim
    good Turtle laps 1000 yd 00:20 35:11 pace

    Easy slow (that's my only swim speed) laps after work. Went a little shorter than planned. Wasn't feeling it, and no point in pushing myself on rest/XT days. Good to shake out the muscles... read more

      Nice swim. The problem for me of swimming too slow is that I'll sink :) I can't take it too easy.

      I know you're disappointed, but it looks like you pretty much nailed your goal! No strides is fine and you hit your goal pace and only .2 mi short. Nice work! UUUGGGHHHHH about the bee, I'm glad you're not allergic (assuming)!
