Workout Notes 2009 Week 21
Work is getting really nutz. And another transition week, this time with Tuesday night track meets kicking in!

Monday I headed to the pool but forgot to bring my planned workout. So instead I did a couple of 1000s followed by 10x100. Yuh! Tuesday was the first track meet. I figured best case I would run around 2:20. And wouldn't you know it that was the time dividing the last two heats. I went with the up to 2:20 heat. I went out a bit slow and found myself behind three runners. At 100 I pushed up behind the leader and then took the lead at 200. I pressed hard and came through in 70. I continued to drive as hard as I could through 600. At about 650 the kid that lead from the start went by me. I was tying up. As we came out of the last corner, I tried to relax. Then I gave it one last effort and viola, I was by him with 80 to go. I pushed as hard as I could and came in at 2:21. That felt like a great effort and it also felt like there was not much more that I could have done. Race 1 in the bag.

Wednesday I forgot my watch so I did my 8 mile loop untimed. Just as well I was dragging! Thursday I was still a bit dead for 8x90 intervals. Friday I had a good swim with progressively faster and shorter intervals.

Saturday it was Memorial Day Soccer Tournament with Logan. She had a 7:30am game and then a game at 12:45. After all of that, I brought her home and headed to the track for 1000-500, 700-200. The 1000 was SLOWWWW. But I got faster with each set. Not bad for a PM workout after spending the day at the soccer field!

Sunday I wanted to ride longer, but Vic was pressuring me to bring her home by 8:30. I was dragging, so after 50 miles I stopped as well. Later, Vic came over and determined that the seat was too low on the new bike. Now its raised about 3/4 to an inch. Hopefully that does the trick.
