Workout Notes 2009 Week 5
This was a tough week as I had four hotel nights in two different cities. But that is getting ahead of the story....

Monday it was raining and cold when I did my Circuits. I figured that I would get real wet when I did the crunches. Actually I was amazingly dry! Just wet hands from pushups and burpees. Tuesday it was also raining, but Tuesday is a swim day! However the rain was turning to freezing rain. Wednesday was looking like Dallas was going to be iced in. I was scheduled out on the first flight to Houston. Not good. So instead of my usual lunch time swimfest, I reorganized my plans, went home, packed, went the airport, got the last flight to Houston, which was late AND it had to be deiced. I was pooped by the time I got to Houston at 9pm. But I went to the gym anyway, but only managed 1000 meters. Wednesday I felt better so I mapped out a few runs from the hotel and then improvised a bit trying to get a perfect 8 miler. Well it turns out I misjudged and did nine miles instead. The truly shocking part is that I did the 9 in 62 minutes. Now that is much, much faster than I have been running my Wednesday runs. Thursday I did my circuits in Houston and flew back to Dallas, which had thawed. Friday I got my usual swim in, unlike Tuesday. But just like Tuesday, I had to drive to Tyler on Friday night, as the kids were all playing in a soccer tournament. At 11:30 Friday night, I remembered that I forgot my teams paperwork at home. So I drove back to Dallas and then back to Tyler, finally getting to bed at 4:00am. And then up at 6:30am to get Reagan fed and to the field at 7:30. After five more games, we got back to the hotel at 6pm and I managed a 30 min run. Sunday morning I got up at 7 and did the same run. It was all I could do! Then six more games Sunday followed by the drive home. Wow!

Three workouts were cut short by travel. That said, I could probably use the rest.
