It seems like there must be a bug going around the triathlon/runner blogger community. I am its latest victim. I really have nothing much to say.
I swam Monday evening. I felt great during the swim. My shoulder only bothered me during the kick sets if I extended my arms all the way out. Tuesday, I had just a little pain. At this point, I am going back full swing and am going to ice it and take alieve as needed. I just need to make it through SC 1/2 and then I can lay off the swimming for awhile. I was glad when I got home and looked at my results that my times for my repeat 100 sprints were right in line with previous times. I also felt like the new stroke (high elbow) is definitely a good thing to work on. Now I just need to focus on doing it all the time.
Tuesday morning I was up at 4AM to do run intervals. The funny thing was when I looked at it I was like, Oh great, I get a whole minute to recover instead of 30 seconds. Well I neglected to consider that the sprints would now be 1 minute versus 30 seconds. The first four or five went great, but the second have felt sluggish. Once I looked through my log, I was like DUH you just doubled your sprint interval.
This morning, again I was up at 4AM, except I chose to go back to bed!! For some reason I cant seem to get my butt out of bed in the AM on ride days. So what I may do is make tomorrow AM a brick.Get up at 4, force my butt out of bed and get on the bike, which has been on the trainer since last night.
Since I dont really have much going on here till this weekend, Id thought Id leave you with a photo.
Have you peeps seen this picture of the USA Olympic Cyclists looking like Hannibal Lecter? Lets hope the smog clears before the events start. Definitely not optimal racing conditions
