day 110

No wind today, which was good. I decided not to bring my garmin today, and just go by the info on my powertap. Well, when I pulled the bike off the roof, the powertap battery was dead, so I was sol regarding speed. That part kinda sucked at first, but after a while I just rode. Without worrying about speed, or power numbers, or any of that crap that we all worry too much about. And I just rode. It gave me that same joy I used to get as a kid, or when I'm out cruising around on my SS mtn bike. Just chillin.

Anyway, I will replace the battery. I will go back to worrying about numbers again. But, maybe I learned something. Every once in a while...go for a ride sans computer. Noted. ;)

day 103

Wasn't really feeling it this morning with waking up. Was super tired when the alarm went off at 5:25...didn't really feel like getting out of bed, but did anyway. Figured I'd get some swimming in, even though my shoulders were sore from yesterday. It must have been that kind of morning for everyone, since the guy at the door of the Rec Center didn't open the doors til 6:05, which led me to getting in the water at 6:10. Since I had to be out by 6:45, that didn't leave me with that much time. I ended up just doing 4x400, with one time trial in there (6:13). Not bad.

Came home, and after breakfast went for a run. Had to do 1:00, and when I got started I felt pretty good. My first mile was like an 8:41, and I just felt strong from there. Ended up running 6.99 miles in 1:00, (8:35/mile), my best yet. (previous best was Sunday's 8:58 for a long run).

SWIM- 400 wu, 3x400 (#2 was TT, 6:13)

SWIM- straight 2000. Hit the mile @ 28:12, full 2000 in 34:13. Felt smooth and comfortable. Funny how I don't seem to warm up until 1000 or so. Then I get in a groove that I can maintain for a while. Thats a good thing, I guess.

BIKE- 1:00, 125 bpm, with 4x5min z4 intervals @ 3min spin, 183watts, 23.47 miles.

day 97

So, since I was supposed to do 3.5 hours on the bike, I decided to do a combo of the Pshop Wed AND Sunday loops. I knew it was going to be super-D-duper windy, but I bundled up and went anyway. I figured it would be an exercise in mental toughness if it was THAT windy. WELL, it was that windy, and I'm a big pussy. Thats what I learned today. Actually, I muscled through, but Jesus H., do I feel like crap now. To be fair, I guess a 15-20mph wind would do most people in on a 3.5 hour ride. That headwind...omg. I was on a flat road, doing 380 watts, and moving at 13.6 mph. FLAT ROAD.

Well, anyway...I feel tough now. :)

day 96

I was *supposed to do a 1:00 run and a long swim today. While I woke up at 5:30 for my run, I lasted a little more than 10:00 on the treadmill (it was cold and rainy) before bagging it. I didn't feel right...I was leg hurt...I was NOT motivated. I listened to my body (blah blah) and sat and watched Sportscenter instead.

After work, I went down to Rowan...determined to get a straight 3000 swim in, to get back on track. I hopped in, did a 100 warm up, and set my timer on my watch. A little more than 50 minutes later (and 120 laps), I was done and happy. I don't know if they used more chlorine than usual, or if I'm becoming pickled by chlorine or what, but my skin is all chalky. So bad that I had to use Vaseline on it after my shower. My face is pretty dry, but my arms are the worst. Better keep up with the moisturizer.

RUN- 10:00 then bagged.
SWIM- 100 wu, 3000 straight (50:02) Hit the mile in 27:12, and the 2500 in 41:15.

day 90

Last day of Biggest Loser. Weighed in, was (-1) and finished in 3rd place. I would have had to lose like, 20 lbs this week to win. I'm happy with what I've done. My goal was to be 215 by IMLP and I weighed in at 212 on my scale friday morning. Decided to get out early this morning, for 3:00 on the bike. I rode with three other guys, and I was the only one who hasn't completed an IRONMAN. Crazy. Anyway, good ride, we mostly just chilled...I got used to the new bike. I forgot my chest strap for powertap/garmin, so I don't have a heart rate number. Kinda weird how I've turned all techie lately, huh?

BIKE- 2:54:49, 44.18 miles
