Did a 3.5 hour trail run – prepping for a 50K trail run coming up.
Run was good – had some hydration issues – but working on a new plan for that – still have a few long run remaining to get it nailed down.September 20, 2009 at 1:55 pm #142112
Ran a local 5mi race, 32:37. 1st in AG.
Hammer HEED + my GI system= horrible, horrible toilet time.
And the week following my next half iron will definitely include more meaningful workouts, especially if I have a race the following weekend. My legs felt like lead from start to finish yesterday.September 20, 2009 at 2:01 pm #142113
16 mile training run last night/9:48 avg pace. A PR distance for me in prep for a December marathon. Aerobically great run; balls of feet and legs were in serious pain, managed 14 before having to back off and walk some….need more cushion I guess. Plus side was a couple of times I hit a really nice stride/groove.
Today’s schedule is a 20-25 mile bike ride.September 20, 2009 at 2:04 pm #142114
Rode 52 yesterday on an O&B course, mix of road and trail. 3:45 with a 15 minute negative split.
Last longish ride before next weekend.
Short run this morning.
Abs both days ,Garen.September 20, 2009 at 2:48 pm #142118
rest day yesterday…5 mi walk with the dog
13 mi run and 25 mi bike todaySeptember 20, 2009 at 3:15 pm #142120
Hour run with my buddy and my dog. Tried to get over Not going to Philly for the Distance Run for the 1st time in 9 years. 45 minute ride. 30 minute swim.
2.5 hour ride today. 30 minute run. Nothing left now but to kick back and carb up for Saturday.September 20, 2009 at 3:35 pm #142121
Short run yesterday and bought a new bike, Cervelo S1 from R&A Cycles in Brooklyn. My first new bike since grammer school so I’m very excited. Took my old bike out this morning for a farewell 38 mile perimeter ride around the island before I pick up the new wheels this week. Looking foward to breaking it in next weekend!September 20, 2009 at 5:43 pm #142122
6 and 8 year old did a duathlon for Special Olympics today. Rest day after my 16 mile run!September 20, 2009 at 6:12 pm #142125
Friday I did strength and a 1500 technique swim, that nite I did hill repeats on a 1.5k hill (intense both up and down to be ready for the downhills in my upcoming half marathon). Saturday I ran 5k recovery real easy and ate way too much at a party. Today was 17.5k at 5:45m/km. I felt really good and comfortable and could have kept going. More importantly, my training buddy, Chewie the dog, was comfortable the whole way and had a great run today! I am hoping that he can actually do my half marathon with me. My partner, a vet, is watching him closely but he seems great and is having no trouble.September 20, 2009 at 6:23 pm #142126
Saturday: 8 miles, comfortable pace, including a few laps around the Compton Hill Reservoir Park, which I’d never run before, though its only a mile from my place. Watched USC lose (horray!), napped, and played Euchre with friends.
Sunday: Rained all morning, so I waited until 11 AM for my run. It was nice and cool, and dodging puddles through my 12 mile run (in 93 min, 7:35 pace) was fun. 4 weeks until the Des Moines marathon.September 20, 2009 at 7:53 pm #142130
Um…absolutely nothing. My planned 8 mile run and 30 mile ride were derailed by four, count ’em four, sick kids! Spent the weekend wiping noses and administering children’s tylenol. Tomorrow, 6:00am speedwork.
Gfd, my sister did the Distance this morning. Spectacular day down our way. Sorry you missed it!September 20, 2009 at 8:36 pm #142131

OMG! that must’ve SUCKED! I feel your pain, but I’d rather not, if you know what I meanSeptember 20, 2009 at 9:01 pm #142132

I hear ya on that, HEED and me don’t get along either.
Ran 13.5 miles today in Houston…not used to the heat at all, I was worried about the hydration/heat issues, but had no problems. Now my toes hurt so I’m off to Walgreens to score some frozen peas, then ice time in the hotel!September 20, 2009 at 9:28 pm #142134
Just got back from my last sprint tri of the season. Had a PR for an overall but my splits weren’t recorded! (bad chip?). Anyways – 6/20 AG and 77/600(ish) OA. I did get passed by three guys in my AG on the run (between miles 1-3) – 6-3=?. Yahhh…
My objectives have gotten become a little more aggressive, with this one to finish in the top 30%. Which I did!
