Team Train-This had a great testing day at our Downtown Y in Syracuse today. They have a multi-rider Computrainer system, so we were able to get 13 of us (who came from far and near in not great weather conditions) through a 10 mile all out bike test today. We had such a fun time sweating it out, and then had a great lunch after.
Coach Mary is sifting through all of the data, so I will be interested to see what she has to say. One thing I know, is that I do not work hard enough on the trainer. That might have something to do with the fact that I am watching Dexter while I ride...hmmm...I might have to rethink my in-ride entertainment.
Anyway, I think I might be coming out of my emotional fog I was in earlier this week. Thank you again for all your kind comments. Training was great this week in terms of time spent...not so great in terms of execution. My legs just weren't showing up on the bike until today, which is okay since the bike test was today. My running is coming along nicely, but I still didn't make it outside. My 30 minute run yesterday was supposed to be outside, but it was cold and sloppy and I was already dressed for inside after yoga, and the treadmill won out when I thought about the 15 minutes it would take to change and then the 30 minutes it would take to warm up after the run, so my 30 minute run would actually end up taking an hour and 15 minutes.
Here are the numbers:
Swim: 2h 21m 7300 yds
Bike: 5h 54m 25s on trainer
Run: 1h 50m 26s 11.12 mi
Yoga/TRX: 1h 50m
Total: 11h 55m 51s
In other news, tonight I convinced my best friend, Ellen, to do the Rev3Tri South Carolina in October!! She will do the olympic on Saturday while I cheer myself hoarse for her, and then she will do the same for me on Sunday while I'm racing the half. I am SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!
And one more thing for all of you fans of the funny things my kids do. Noah, my 4 year old, has recently discovered the joys of going commando. I've had to start asking him if he has underwear on. Yesterday he came into our room and Kel and I both asked him if he was wearing underwear. He said yes, with a straight face. I said, "Show me." He did...and had no underwear on! I think I might start calling him "The Lying Commando."
Seriously, look at this face. How can you be mad at that?
Ellen told me I should just tell him his you-know-what will fall off if he doesn't wear underwear. And now you know why she is my best friend.
Have a great week!!
