Today was a good day Officially 50 + one day and with good sleep, was up and ran this morning just over 9 miles and avg 8:36 pace with an avg heart rate of 142 (was a bit humid) but the run felt good at 77 mins to complete, a little short but it was a nice feeling to get one under the belt that was good after Sunday.

Slow Sunday- it just wasn't pretty no sleep _ fun party Saturday night and fire Alarm going off at 3:30 didn't help since I just got to bed at 2:00 and trying to get up and run at 7 just wasn't going to make it - so it was back to bed for and hour - which meant starting off at 8:30 and that was going to be painful, hot - tired and Humid - so thats what I got an just over under 9 miles and a pace of 8:58 wow very hard.

The fun of Balancing Training, planning a wedding running a business in a very crappy environment and all this in a very short 4 month time frame till the big race, but I know the miles on thew road (Bike) will keep the sanity together (so yes Tim, you can pile them on). Time is getting away from me as you can see with these postings. I think its been a week, but since I'm not counting you shouldn't either. The SRM is back and will be getting that back on the bike this weekend (very excited to have it back) and will start tracking that again.

Its a big week here around the homestead this week, what with Toni's birthday on Tuesday, Jessica's yesterday and mine Tuesday, century mark for both of us ouch.....
The run has been coming along, I didn't fall to far back since I only rested for a week. Wednesday's run was just under 9 miles and just under 9 pace (I can get that down if I would just stop talking) as you can see by Fridays, since I ran alone I put in the same miles with an average pace of 8:40 see talking is not always beneficial.

And today was a great pace bike day, put in just over 75 miles in around 4 hours all in Z1 with a 30 min not so easy run (same ole HEAT) anyway looking forward to building on it.

Taking the week off wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, (except this part) actually forgot to post any updates, I guess all the junk food went to my head :-) Its Monday and I have not done a dam thing except rise at 4:30 to catch a 6 am flight to Chicago and I am on the way back now 9:30pm (really at 30k feet over Atlanta and bumping all over the place) got to love the summer storms. Anyway will have to make up the swim yardage. But the previous week was a good "back at it" week, a couple of 75 min runs (yea the pace is off just a bit) and the legs were just a little tight.

Put in a 4 hour ride on Saturday and and it didn't feel like I missed a beat - that was nice! The run on Sunday was a little over 10 miles with an average pace of 8:50, but I lacked sleep so I am sure it was not my best, but will get after it this week. Should have the SRM back soon, hopefully?? Great job to TEAM QT2 in Lake Placid, Nice showing!!
