Another day, another triple

Maybe I'm obsessed with training. I certainly enjoy it, crave it, think about it, dream about it, want it all the time, you get the idea.

I did another triple today...all finished before 9 am. It was shorter than Tuesday's but I did one workout right after the next. My own mini tri, if you will.

Swim: 1800 yards. I conned myself into skipping my masters class today because my swim on Tuesday went so well. Yeah, well, that was a mistake because I immediately started thinking about ways to cut my workout short. Originally, I was going to swim 3500 yards, but I get bored and lazy on my own. Back to masters for me. Of course, I'll do my own long, straight swim every couple of weeks. It's a shame my focus is so bad because I love the neighborhood pool. It's empty and peaceful.

Bike: 8 miles. Ugh. Such a short ride! I don't feel like I should even count it. It was super windy, of course. Took me 20 minutes to ride 4 miles, then I turned around because I was worried about being blown into the river or hit by a jackass driver, and it only took 10 minutes for me to get back. From 12 mph to 24 mph. I like 24 mph better. That said, I'm definitely getting stronger and I handled my bike much better. The wind has made me a better cyclist and I'm sure I'll see the results if I ever get a calm ride!

Run: 6.2 miles. No biggie. Didn't take the dogs with me (why? Please see yesterday's post) and it felt really weird. It's getting easier to run off the bike, though it still feels weird, and probably always will.

Feeling great about training, though I seem to have morphed into a toddler. I get so cranky when I'm hungry, which is a lot of the time...and I could really use a nap. The nap isn't going to happen, but I'm sure enjoying the eating!


  1. I need some of that obsession!
