For the past couple of years my training has been very consistent
Especially on the weekends. Barring races (which do get in the way of training) a long ride on Saturday and a long run on Sunday were almost automatic.
Well… after a Marathon in February and an injury in early March… automatic things were not.
This weekend hopefully was the first of a new streak of consistency and volume… I’ve missed it and my fitness has missed it too.
Judi had a conference to attend Fri nite and Saturday so I had to go on without her. I took the kids to a carnival Friday night and while the rode the rides I perused the rummage sale they have there… and scored (amongst a bunch of non-tri related gear) a pair of Pearl Isumi leg warmers (brand new) for $2.
On Saturday I rode with a bunch of folks from our tri club I’d never ridden with before… nice and consistent 20-22 mph for the first couple of hours… then took turns throwing a few digs in. All in all a good time a little over 3 hours in the saddle and 72 miles.
On Sunday we did not get up and do a long run… we ran home from the beach instead. 7 miles… most of it into a heckacious headwind… knee held up okay… it did not like running down the Beach Blvd bridge, however.
The wind was out of the Southwest
This morning was a nice 4 mile run… ~8:30 pace… felt good to be quick.
Back to masters swim tonight too… we’ll see how much my stroke has suffered.
