Once again I am living up to my name. I have been working out, but I haven’t been blogging. In the past week I have had five really good workouts. I can feel the endurance coming back, especially in the swimming and running. Once I get the bike out on the road I will let you know how my trainer workouts have worked.
I have had some contract issues at work. So Tuesday and Wednesday I had to work from home. I did bunch of CPE classes since I don’t have much vacation time since I have returned from military leave. I also dismantled a shed, moved a desk, tried to do some plumbing, and bought a new part for the sink all over at the “old” house. On Tuesday I had a 2000 meter total swim with the main set being 10 x 100. I really hate 10 x anything (especially 100s). However, I was happy with my times. I got slower over the course of the set, but I started at about 1:40 and ended at 1:48s. For a non-swimmer like me I have no complaints.
I swam two days in a row and on Wednesday the main set was 4 x50 (constant pace), 3x300, and 4x50 (finish strong). Again my 300s were in the 1:48 to 1:50/100 pace. I was pretty happy and rather tired. Thursday morning was a run day. After a nice warm Wednesday afternoon (low 60s), it was a blustery 25. Where is spring? As cold as it was, I still had a very good run. I can tell the fitness is coming back. I maintained or was a little faster over miles than I have been and my HR was about 7 bpm less.
On the house front; I started painting the shed, but I still haven’t finished the trim. I got a new Weber Grill which I used for the first time last night. Sorry no photos. Finally, we ordered a new dining room table set. It is suppose to be delivered on Saturday. The house is slowly coming together.
I will be playing soldier this weekend, so no hard training. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
