I am beyond tired right now... Just to put it into context, it has been a monumental chore for me to get into a hot tub, type things, fill a water bottle, and eat chocolate. Usually these things are AUTOMATIC BABY!
If you were a betting man, would you ever bet against Dicky V?
The day started off with masters swimming which I have avoided due to the early nature of these workouts. It walks that fine line of exercise being fun and exercise being productive when you have to get up around 6 am to do it. However, the swim sets are always awesome thanks to the LEGEND, Jill Savege.
WARNING: Workout details below! This part will bore you if you aren't geeked up on tri crap...
6x150 pull w/ paddles
3x100 on 1:30, 3x100 on 1:25, 3x100 on 1:20
2x100 on 1:30, 2x100 on 1:25, 2x100 on 1:20
1x100 on 1:30, 1x100 on 1:25, 1x100 on 1:20
It was sick and I BLASTED the 100's... super cruisey and fast enough to get massive amounts of rest even on the 1:20's. 3 weeks ago, I would have been pressed to make 1:20 intervals.
Double shot at starbucks and immediately off to a bike with Jason, Matt, and Tony. They had a 40k TT to do and I had 20k of over under intervals. My set was 3x (5min @ 360watts, 5min @300 watts). My powermeter had no batteries so I just kind of winged it...I ended up averaging 26.4 mph on a super windy day and without pinning it too bad. Again pretty comfortable and the speed was just there. I followed Tony around for the rest of his TT and then cooled down with them. 2hrs and 10 min on the bike. The boys smashed it. Jason and Matt hit 1:08-1:09 territory and Tony hit 1:04. Good early season stuff.
On to the next one... I immediately hopped off the bici and had a 5 min build to race pace followed by 15 min easy... I pushed a bit too hard I guess and ran the 5 minutes @ 5:24 min/mile pace! The effort didn't feel out of control but who knows. It's easy to feel good for 5 minutes.
I got home and fell onto the bed. It was noon. Just looking at all the crap I did before noon makes me tired. That is too productive for a Saturday morning in this blogger's humble opinion.
