Todays run was good.. temp was great.. i set out to do 4 miles... I was worried my legs wouldnt be able to handle it.. but i very surprised.. legs felt great.. lil tired but not enough to hinder my run.. I tried keeping my HR in check.. for the most i did.. My recovery is a lot fast these days.. which is good. show that fitness is coming back.. im pretty excited about this.. on way back in.. i was still feeling pretty good.. so i decided to keep going.. i added a mile an a half.. i hit the 5 mile mark.. still feeling good.. HR is was hoovering at 166.. so i picked up the pace.. and just blew it out..

Last week wss great.. I worked out consistantly.. 5 days straight.. I had school stuff and horrible weather that monkeywrenched saturday and sunday.....
Yesterday was a great workout.. Run and biked.. I did a 4 mile run. Actually it felt pretty good. HR was up.. So i tried focusing on my breathing and pace to keep it under control.. It was very windy, felt like i was running uphill the entire run..
I used and exercise bike for biking.. I pedaled for an hour.. 23 miles on the bike.. Level 13, random hills. HR is hovered arounds 145 the entire session. I thought was ok, considering the course.. One time it popped up to 163-165. Big hill climb.
Yes once a break through. I got two workouts done.. I feel relatively good about them.. So, training can only get better from here..

Decided to do a 2 mile run when i got back to my car.. to kinda flush out the legs. shane joined me..i was really tight in the lower leg region.. i noticed my HR was up and not coming down.. I guess because im not adjusted to the warm temps yet.. so eveything it got passed 165, i walked it down to 145-150, then started running again.
great workout yesterday...

I got on the scale.. i wasn't happy with what i saw there. it totally explains why i feel like im carrying a bookbag with bricks in it..
Today work was good.. legs felt great on the bike.. i was feeling pretty strong pedaling into the wind. so it feels that im making some progress on the bike as well as everywhere else.
Run after bike was good.. only ran a mile after torture my legs on the bike.. found my stride after about a 500 yards into run.. breathing was a little off.. HR was high but, thats typical in this stage.. building fitness is a tough job.. especially to be better.

So im thinking ill use this workout of 1600 to 3100m for about a month or so. Then jump on IM swim plan one i swim the 3100m meters consistently.
I picked new goggles.. Wow what a difference.. The gaskets in old ones were really worn.

Ride started off ok. wind were blowing from the west. the winds were frickin howling.. WWWOOOOWW. i will keep this short. but the winds sucked ass today. felt like i was riding in a wind tunnel. winds had to be over 35 mph in some area. my quads were on fire.. I also ejected my two water bottles somewhere along the ride.
my bike fitness is in the toilet. but i will get better.. it all starts now.
