So things these days are all over the place.  I know, I know same story as last post but that whats cracking these days.  In some ways faster and better then ever and could be significantly better with more consistent effort.  It just is what it is.  This blog serves as a personal diary, a training diary to look back at how I have modified and changed, and this blog serves as a means to other runners and triathletes.  I have been lacking on the blog but if there isn't a whole lot to report then there isn't a whole lot to post.  I am going to go through the last 2 it goes:

Monday-Swim.  I decided to keep with the same swim workout since it felt so right.  Right meaning that I felt like I was learning how to swim faster.  Same thought process as running the track.  Here are stats: 7:52 warm up, 6:16, 6:02, 6:19, 6:37, (2 min rest in between) and cool down of 5 min.  44 min total.  Very hard effort and feels good to get some 250s at 6 min.  Overall spent.
Tuesday-easy 45 min run.
Saturday-7 miles in the santa rosa, unbelievable run.  the kind of run that you refer to when your having a bad run.
Sunday-travel home

Monday-Swim.  no data but it was faster than last week.
Tuesday-Easy run 40
Wednesday- Hills.  4 x up (1more than last time) and it was much hotter.  Faster up hill than last time.
Saturday-Long open swim.  1250 in 30 min.  Had trouble with rhythm.  If i could get a better rhythm that would have been 2-3 min faster than rage last year.  Flat tire flattened a bike ride.  I know karl I need more bike.  Overall not a bad first open swim.
Sunday-Pushed a big workout for possible strain/soreness.
Monday-today.  Swim.  7:02 wu, 5:54, 6:09, 6:03, 6:24, 6:30 and 5 min cd 51 min total.  My first 250 under 6 min, also saw my first lap at 56 sec.  Am I finally getting faster in the water?  I am feeling the speed more and the water moving faster.  Its pretty cool.  I felt great.  Quote:

A little bit of a low but I am working out if it.
