Good morning lovelies! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I sure did!
First things first... Training Recap for the week:
Swim: 1800 yds, 2 workouts - My swimming right now is focused on breathing and correct form. The master's swim class has been worth every dollar of the $35 it is costing me per month. Seriously. You should find one in your area if you want to work on form, technique, and effeciency. I have two more work outs focused on drills, then I will be worked into the normal workouts which average 3000 yds per workout.
Bike: 42 miles - Saturday morning are my long rides so this makes up the most of my mileage currently. I tried a new ride with the PBA on Saturday and it's still too slow for my pace. Not sure if I'm ready for the "tweener" ride (45 miles at 16mph average) but - I think after I get through this race weekend I may try it. It is not a no drop ride so if I get dropped I can always make my way home.
Run: 5 miles (should have been 11) - I missed my Sunday 6 mile run. Which means I'm going to have to work in the mileage this week. Not sure if I will work in one extra 6 mile run on my day off or possibly work in two three milers. I need to talk with Lea and see. I bought new running shoes on Friday and was kinda ticked I missed my run to try them out. Oh well, if the weather cooperates today I may try and sneak in a few miles just as a test run. (Look forward to a shoe post soon)
Total Mileage: 48.02 miles.5.5 hours
Ummm... it was a baseball weekend for this girl. My Texas Rangers came home with a 2 game lead in the ALDS vs. Tampa Bay. Bill bought tickets for the Saturday night game and we loaded up and headed out for a tailgate after my bike ride on Saturday. Poor Rangers couldn't pull it out - but that was a-ok because we had tickets for Sunday's game too.... 20 rows behind home plate to be exact :) BUT - disappointing...couldn't clinch then either...so it's back to Tampa for game 5.
We purchased game 7 ALCS tickets (saying we go to game 7 versus the Yanks - first seeing that we wrap up the ALDS in Tampa).....
So I'm off to work...the big wigs are here....gotta go schmooooze...HOLLA!
