My Itty Bitty One Man Tri Morning
Thursday, November 17, 2011
I had this plan to create my own little Tri Workout for this morning. It included swimming at 7am, Group Ride (Spinning) at 9:30 then running the 6 miles home from the gym. But with rain forecasted for today I changed my plan. I set my alarm for 5am and after 15 minutes of debating if I wanted to get out of bed I got up. I put on my running sneakers but remembered my right ankle still has a blister healing. So I took off my right Zoot and put on my Mizuno.
I figured no one was going to be out and about plus it was dark outside. So off I was running. While running I could see flashes of light in the sky. So between that and the fact it took me a lot of time to actually get ready and out the door I only ran 3 miles. I was going to do the loop which is about the same distance I had ran but I felt safer with the lightening about to hit if I stayed on my side of the main road. Plus I felt less exposed to being hit with the houses and all on this side of the road.
After the run I quickly changed and headed to the pool. The rain had yet to start but the sky was an odd shade of red. Almost pinkish. That was an early warning of a pending storm.
Mixed 500 then 200 Kick (700)
Then we did…
4x125's on 2:10 - 25 Fly / 25 Back / 50 Breast / 25 Free. (500)
And that was it. It was to be 8x125's but thunder and lightening hit pretty strong so we had to get out. So a 1200 yard swim. But I do know what tomorrows swim is going to be so I need my rest. I got 3 Rounds of 4x100's on 1:20. Gonna be a tough morning.
The storm hit so fast with rain the the streets were flooded on the way home. Glad I got my run out of the way. Now I just gotta get my act together and head over to the 9:30 Group Ride / Spinning Class to finish my Easy Easy Short Short Tri Workout.
Wow oh wow. I decided to stay for a 2nd Group Ride Spinning Class with Nancy. So it was 9:30am and 10:45am.
Earning me a whole bunch of things for Fitocracy. Which the verdict is still out for me. I like it but really do I need to keep track of everything somewhere else besides here? But I do earn cool titles and badges...
Not that I understand what they mean. They are meaningless I guess but sorta cool?
Yes, I am lost. Oh well a good day of working out!
