Also started a little lifting and core. So got that in x 3.

Happy training everyone.
Sorry for venting. I did do the treadmill 20 minutes at the hotel in Houston yesterday. And my new bike racing team had a get-together Saturday evening at my house. It was nice to meet them all.

Show ran late Monday night, so we didn't get home until 3am. Tuesday all training was cancelled due to zombification. Managed to get decent workouts in Wednesday & Thursday, but all I did was swim on Saturday & Sunday. Other stuff happened. Meh, whatever.
This week's goals:
Run x 6
Swim x 4
Bike x 3
Core/strength x 4

Wed. night was my appointment with my massage running injury fix it guy. Under his brutal hands, I about leapt off the table several times. Saturday I resumed running. I headed out cautiously to see what would happen. WOOHOO! Only the smallest hint of a twinge at the hamstring attachment point. I was thrilled beyond pieces and happier than ever.
Need to remember running is a gift. I'm blessed to be able to do this.
Next, I need to figure out why sometimes I bail on morning workouts, even if I wake up 'too early' and know I am not going back to sleep. This happened this morning.
I was going to get on the trainer. I bailed and instead left for work early... the roads have been pretty bad lately. This morning they weren't bad and I got to work early, but that was OK since I finished up a project early.'
This week - continue to get back into running. Get in pool and get on trainer.
Ummm I did some run speed workouts but I also ran too much overall
Did not bike - I sometimes use it to commute but I needed the car to get to/from the dentist
Food was kind of an ordeal with the teeth issues. I did okay-ish.

My daughter got the dry socket thing. It's rough. Takes a while to heal. Make sure to stay hydrated and get a little extra sleep, etc.
Haven't posted in a few weeks - winter term is always crazy for me as I teach an extra lab class that is pretty time consuming. We are also socked in with wicked cold and lots of pesky snow storms that have me pretty down with the winter blues. I am also stuck inside for most workouts. Have been good about running on the dread mill, but not so much on the trainer. Flip side, been spending more time in the pool!
2 strength & core
