The pollen is killing me. Its amazing how 150 is extremely high and our count today is 2800. This is the one thing I hate about Georgia. We never had this problem in South Florida. OH well at least its only for a few months.
Last night I did a spin class with my wife. That may be my last LAF spin class. I have been having some on and off knee pains. Well I realized last night that their bikes are the likely culprit. I dont know if the seat is too wide, or the pedals too close together, but I cannot bring my knees inward and they seem to stick outward. I think this is putting pressure on my knees. That combined with the fact that my legs were tired from the last three days (race,ride,swim) made last night more of a recovery ride.
So as seems to be the case one bad workout is followed by a great one. In order to fit everything in this week and still spend time with my wife I decided to double up today. This morning I got up and went to the gyme to run on the treadmill. Todays plan called for my first real speed work in 6+ years I have been running. I did a 10 min warmup at 10:00/mi then I did 14* (30@7:30/30@10:00) finally I cooled down for 10 @ 10:00/mi for a total of 3.64. It felt great, I really didnt tire at all. I can wait to run a 10K and see how I can do.
Tonight is another good swim. Tommorow is up in the air. I may do a spin class with the wife as a recovery or I may jump in the pool and just swim some distance. Saturday is a long run. I am hoping the weather will cooperate so I can run with the group. Sunday I plan on hitting the comet for a 2-3 hour ride. Hope everyone's training is going well for them
