Sun & Mon Jan 8, 9 2006

  

Sunday — 2 hours trainer, 1 hour swimming 3100 yards / Monday — 50 minutes biking, 1 hour 10 minutes running 10 miles

Awoke from a restful sleep to find a blanket of snow covering the ground.  Wanting to get a long ride in I set up the garage for entertainment while riding.  I watched ‘The Closet” which was 85 minutes and then the first quarter of the Giants vs. Panthers Wild Card game.  After 2 hours of riding, I was finally done.  It actually wasn’t that bad, as time went by much faster than I anticipated.  I tried to change up the gears often and stood up more frequently.  Mostly, it was just some long base miles.

Swimming was moderate and I did 4 x 500’s then a 1000 with a quick warm down.

On Monday I commuted to work on my mtn. bike.  That evening I ran to the track and proceeded to run 32 laps with a brief water break at 16.  My time at 16 was 27:20 and at lap 32 I finished with 56:12.  So I ended up averaging 7 minute miles but the last 3 were probably slower because the first 5 were under 7 min pace.  Then I ran home to get 10 miles in for the day.  I am elated that my legs are able to handle the hard surface running…first time in my life I’ve been able to run like this without injury.
