  1. RUN
    good Recovery Run 6.01 mi 00:53 08:52 pace

    Awesome morning out there today! Lower half was pretty sore at the start but loosened up a few miles in. Took it nice and easy today.

      Nice recovery run....though I don't truly believe in such! Glad you loosened up, that was quite an effort on Sunday! :)

    good 2700 yd 01:07 43:43 pace

    Nice swim today to loosen up a sore body. I tried my Finis strapless paddles for the 100 c/d. They stayed in place pretty well and certainly provided additional resistance. Once the stroke goes out... read more

  5. RUN
    good Mighty Cow Challenge - Part 1 3.07 mi 00:22 07:07 pace

    5K to start the day. Placed 3rd. I totally could have grabbed 2nd, but the 5-seconds I would have shaved from my time for the additional effort would not have been worth it. New course PR for the 5K!
