Workout Notes 2008 Week 33
I took the week off of work this week. Wednesday I grabbed the wife and kids and we headed to New Bransfels for a couple of days of goofing around on the water. From a workout perspective, nothing great. Another travel week (and next week too!). But really, I just took it easy.

First off it was a lot of running this week - but I did not have a watch!!!!!!!!!! Arrgghh!! But in some ways its good to just dump the watch and run. Monday and Wednesday I did just that. No watch. Ran the neighborhood loop - which should be around an hour. No fuss. No muss. But Friday through Sunday I was down in New Bransfels and I had no preset course. So I needed to run for time. But I had no watch! Yikes. So I borrowed Reagan's stopwatch. Yeah I was out there with a powder blue girls sports watch. And the strap was fastened on the next to the last hole. Cute.

I did manage to get a couple of swims in however. Tuesday - I went to the Garland Club to swim and no kidding, I walk in to the pool and Victoria walks out of the ladies locker room just as I walk out of the mens locker. Completely unplanned. And her workout was identical to the first half of my plan. Except a lot harder. Of course she killed me. Thursday, I went to the New Bransfels Public Pool in Landa Park. Lap swim is from 6 until 10 am. I got there at 7 just as the swim team showed up. But I staked out a place away from them and knocked out 3200 yards. Good stuff.

BTW - my brand new Polar 610i was waiting for me when I got home. Nice. :-)
