Workout Notes 2008 Week 43
After the race on Sunday, It would have been a better thing to do something easy. Instead I forged ahead with my planned fartlek, and not having a good route in mind, I did 15 minutes more running than the schedule called for. Needless to say, my legs were shot after that run.

Wednesday morning I drove to Austin to work out of the office down there. There is a lifetime fitness just north of our office down there, so I stopped there on my way back and did my hour run. Strangely, in the locker room I ran into an old co-worker from Dallas that I had not seen in four years!

Saturday I had hoped to get up at ODark Thirty and run Flywheel golf course. Instead I woke up too late to get in 90 minutes and get back in time to get Marissa to her soccer game. Instead, I barely had enough time to squeeze in 90 minutes between bringing Marissa back from her game and getting Logan off to her game. (Sheesh). So I had to hammer it. And I did. I had been running this loop in 90 minutes, and yesterday I did it in 81. Smoking!

Today, Vic, Terry and I had a pretty easy 50 mile bike. It was a little cool at the start, but once the sun came up it was spectacular. Last week when I was signing up for Blackland, I bought a new pair of bike shoes. Today was my first ride with them and they felt great as well.
