Rain Rain


I got this morning looking forward to 5 mile hilly workout and what do I see is rain. Don't get me wrong, we need some rain and I know come spring and summer we will be glad we have the reserve, but I am trying to get a running group started in my neighborbood. There is plenty of training going through out the club, the key is getting it communicated to the general population. Plus my runs on Wed and Fri start at 0530--people don't alway like that. So on the run front today was a bust. Oh well!!

So I know all you dear readers are wondering what The Lazy Triathlete did? Did he go back to sleep? Sit on his ass and drink coffee? I know the suspense is killing you. I actually got in a 50+ min spin watching Crockett and Tubbs bust a kiddie porn king. What a way to start the day!!!!

Yesterday I was in the pool at the Y. After a short 300 warm up, we did a 500 yd time trial. I had been hoping we start doing some TTs. I either swam in 9:16 or 10:07 I lost track of 50 yards I am not sure which is correct. I really need to get me a lap counter. After that we did some lifeguard type drills with a brick. You swim to the brick, dive into the deep end to retrieve it, and then kick on your back holding the brick above your head. You have to kick hard to keep your speed up or you will sink. It was a good leg work out.

This weekend is Army weekend. I hope to get in today's run on Saturday. But we will see.

What does army weekend mean? What do you have to do?
I hear you about the lap counting. I seem unable to keep track of anything over 200 yards.

I hate loosing yardage. I figure out in the grand scheme of things I probably overcount just as often as I undercount, so it all works out in the wash.

I agree - I woke up this morning and it clearly took the cake for the ugliest day in a long-long time. It's as though the sky just had the runs...

I never can keep track of swimming laps. Glad to see you are on the mend.
