      You never know - sometimes you can exercise through a cold and sometimes it is just better to stay in bed. HOPE THE COLD GOES AWAY FAST!!

      I've been using it for a few weeks. I'm looking forward to a "free ride" day on the plan to pick my own workout. Nice spin!

      For sure, Trace. Today marks the 2nd day I've been able to clip out unassisted on my "recovering" leg. That has to mean an outdoor ride isn't too far off!

    Good swim test prep session today. Trying to dial in my "test" pace. Did the 400 @ 1:51/100, which is pretty good for me. The 200s today were a bit too fast (1:45 and 1:49/100) to hold fo... read more

    Steady tempo today with a couple sprints and one good charge up a hill thrown in for good measure.

    good Morning Swim 2500 yd 00:55 38:50 pace

    The swim felt good today. Nothing too intense, just some good steady-paced efforts.
    Had very consistent 100 splits during the 400s (1:57 x 3, 1:56)
    Here is the run down:

      Steve, that might be tough, there'd be an international incident with the Polish Coast Guard having to pull a Montoycycle from the river. Nice, nice swim Steve!

      It is just feeling banged up today. I think it will bounce back OK. I had a feeling that would happen if I kept playing with him. Guess I should have listened to my common sense. :)

      Don't get your hopes up. These tempo intervals aren't too hard. The steady state and power intervals in the coming months are a different story, however. Stay tuned! :)

    Zwift - Tempo 1 x 30 again 19.81 mi 01:00 19.8mph pace

    Another low-cadence day in Watopia. 15 min w/u and c/d with a 30 minute tempo spin in between. My legs are tired after 3 days in a row of this kind of workout. I can't wait to get outside!

      Tricky, after I saw him 6-weeks post injury he said I didn't need to see him again unless something bad happened and it started really hurting or was reinjured. He told me to do activities as tolerated and if it starts to hurt, I need to back off. So, he's trusting me to do the right thing. Silly doc. :) I still think it will be at least a few weeks until I can think about running again given how it feels now.

    good Muscle Tension 3 x 4 min 14.04 mi 00:45 18.7mph pace

    Good strength-building workout this morning. The intervals were done in a big gear at about 60 rpm. Other than that, nothing too crazy.
