definitely NOT smiling

Monday, May 19th, 2008

I wish I was…smiling, during todays long run.  There were loads of people out on the trails today for the holiday weekend.  Occasionally I would grimace, and I noticed a few people as I passed would smile back at me.  I think they thought I was initiating a smile.  No, I was holding on for my life!

I built a 2.5hour run from zone 1 to zone 2.  I managed to negative split, and run faster than I have since my big run focus I built back in April.  Prior to the run, I was still feeling the effects from yesterday’s long bike/T-run,…tired.  Fact is I was wiped.  I focused on staying positive and imagined a successful run – this was part of a two day, back to back solid workout days.  Being less than 5weeks out from Ironman Coeur D’Alene, I need to hit my Ironman Specific training days with some serious training, and do it well!

I arrived home from the workout completely spent,…all I could think about was how great a glass of water and a smoothie will taste.  After chugging my beverages of choice, I felt sick,…my stomach was achy,…and all I could manage to do was curl up in a little ball on the floor, and moan.  I was a pathetic mess.

It’s been a few hours and my eyes are less crossed…

…I still have an easy run/jog to do.

Undoubtably so, more immediate active recovery and rest tomorrow will prove important.

The day for flats

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

It was just one of those days – when almost everyone received a gift from the Flat Tire Gods. I rode long with 3 others today, T-run afterwards with Jason Wall (btw whos going to be a force to be reckoned with at the Sylvan Lake 1/2 IM this year). All went well,…my confidence with my cycling will surely continue to build with more days in the saddle alike today.

Thanks for the scrumdili-icious muffins Capri!!!! I must make a point to do more bikes/T-runs starting and ending at Jas’ place more often.

She’s a beauty of a day at 26degreesC.

Best to everyone –

Scott
