Work is still busy but beginning to slow down however I have to work in about two hours so I figured I'd post a quick update
Nothing doing as it was a recover day from the Chilly. I thought about doing P90X yoga but was too tired so I just read blogs.
Masters swimming but I was still tired and didn`t have a good workout. Hockey was the same that night and we got hammered. Its only pick up hockey so who cares
A pathetic bike ride as I barely made it through the drills. Why am I doing drills three days after a race What happened to my recovery week The weather is looking really crappy with rain, snow and wind and tomorrow I have to run intervals so I switched it today while the weather is somewhat bearable. I went over to my parents at noon and ran around the old hood. Unfortunately I forgot my running jacket and there was no way I could run without a wind breaker and I did not want spend more than one hour driving home and back. I phoned my brother Glen to see if he had any old jackets at the house. He didn't but said just to wear any old windbreaker. That did the trick as I wore my Moms bright yellow jacket which wasn't a bad idea as it was very overcast and rainy but the jacket made it easier for cars to see me. The workout was 6 x 1,000 meters sprint @ a 4:30 min km in the pouring rain and wind. This was going to be fun....not. Clearly if this morning bike workout wasn't a great one, neither was this run. Did I mentioned I ran a half marathon three days ago I died on the last sprint and it was a slow jog back home.
Masters swim again which was a little better but I bailed on the last drill of 5 x 100 meters @ 1.45. I tried swimming the first 100 meters but my goggles filled up with water and that was the end of workout.
Another ride and more one legged drills. Did I mentioned how much I hate one legged drills
At least this ride was a little better than Wednesday. I was supposed to pick up pizza for dinner on the way home but ended up getting stuck on a call. I ended up being 90 minutes late and was starving. I made the mistake of having one slice and it was all down hill from there. One slice lead to another and..... Then I opened a beer and another and.....
Unsurprisingly, I gained two pounds last night. This mornings run was for 2:20. This was not going to be fun. Did I mentioned I ran a Half Marathon six days ago I got up at 4:30 am to eat and catch up on some blogs. I left at 5:20 am and was tired at the end of the first two kilometers. The temperature dropped and the sidewalks were like skating rinks so I ran on the road. At that time of the morning it wasn't a problem as traffic was very light and when a car approached, they either changed lanes or I jumped on the side. It wasn't an exciting run and not much to report other than the fact that it took me 2 hours and 20 minutes to run 24 km. I did not care about pace or what zone I ran in. I just wanted to get it done. Maybe drinking beers the night before a long run isn't such a good idea
Time for a quick nap at 9:50 am before heading into work.
That's all I got.
