Friday and Sat the 28th and 29th of april

So the diagnosis was sinus infection. Back on antibiotics again. Amzing though, I felt better within 10 hours of being on them.

Did and easy short swim and short run Friday AM.
PM: did a 2 hour ride on the tt bike with 40min at goal IM pace.

Sat: sort of turned into a big day...with out trying.
Wakeup, run 20min easy. Eat breakfast. Ride ~100 miles in 5:45 (very Hilly raymond loop), get off and run 30min easy.
All was good, except I ate some solid food near the end of the bike and wanted to hurl on the run.:}

Monday the 17th of April

a bit of an unload week for me. It is funny, I know so many people who train for long distance racing, but never let their body "absorb" any of the training...I don't mean a 3 hour training week, but actually backing off the throttle a bit. I will still "train" this week, and even 1-2 quality sessions, but otherwise I am backing off the frequency/volume and intensity all ~35-40%.

Today was a moderate swim of 3500scy with some short reps (1oo's, 75's, 50's and 25's). Did not have my "A" game so I must be tired...

train smart.

this week..

sorry for the delay. busy with work/family/training.
Big week;
20K swimming
a lot of biking (some good TSS points)
and pretty solid run week too. Although my long run got hosed by some rain so I split it up...does that count?

Unload week upcoming. Make sure to take advantage of it!
Train smart y'all.

4/6 and 4/7

Thurs the 6th was a 2:05 long run. Steady ~7:40 pace. Felt good throughout. Was a bit cold as I did not wear enough. PM was a 1 hour "stupid slow" recovery ride.

Friday the 7th: busy day with client meetings, and a drive to Boston. Only workout was a 5100 yard swim with a 10x100 on 1:30 and a 8 x 300 mainset.

Wednesday, April 05, 2006


AM: swim. 3700scy, main set was 15x100 descending 1-5, 6-10 and 11-15 from ~1:23 to 1:14 on 1:45.
Then a short 20min "jog"

PM: 2:15 ride. With a pretty solid set of 2x12min at .9 of FTP, spin 15min (to get to a better road) then 45min continual at IM watts in the aero position. 30min t-run to wrap it up.

Tuesday, April 04, 2006

Monday and Tuesday 4/3 and 4/4

AM: swim ~3800 yards, mixed pace. Nothing to brutal.

Tuesday: a bit of unload day (good as the weather sucks!):
AM: very easy swim, was tired for sure. Total was ~2700 yards...slow.
PM: might be 45min "spin" on the trainer, but a nap will happen for sure!

train smart.
