2008 Week 15

Week 15

04/07/2008 - 04/13/2008

Swim - 5,000 yards - 2 hr 20 min (4 workouts) Continuing to improve.

Bike - 60 miles - 3 hr 45 min (5 workout) Trainer bike workout, I have to get outside and ride for a few hours at a time. I took a fix a flat clinic on Saturday at a local shop. Came home and was able to change both my front and rear tires.

Run - 6.2 miles - 1 hr 5 min. (1 workout) Run/Swim brick outside. This is getting real bad my run mileage. I have to start running in the morning before Kim leaves for work. But here it is Tuesday morning and I was not able to get my ass out of bed either of the last two mornings.

Lifting/Core - 0 minutes ( 0 workouts)

Notes - Feel better (was sick late in the week last week). My allergies are starting to kick in but just have to deal with it.

Sunday I took part in a Swim Clinic. Was worried I would not be ready for the clinic but I talked to the coach and we agreed I would give it a try. I am so glad I did, it was a great clinic and I got some great drills to work on. I signed up for all three sessions so I will be back the next two Sunday's. I get to use my new best friend - FINS.

I will run my first official race of 2008 this Saturday. There is a 5K in my town so I have no excuse not to go do it. My PR last year was 26:30(ish). At this point I think I would be happy with sub 28.

That run comment sounds a bit like whining, Dan. 10 workouts last week. I'm thinkin that's pretty strong.

Watch, you'll come back with a PR for the 5k.

Good luck with the 5K this weekend!

Still putting up some great numbers. Great job.

I loved your comment to Topher about switching Liams so he can get a Garmin. Hilarious.

Take care!
