resting hr: 54
soreness/fatigue: 2

Brick 8-10am

I LOVE MY NEW GARMIN! I rode the Dublin grade and then ran the Kane Trail. This was the first brick that the run was suppose to be at threshold pace. I ran 3.5 miles at 8:33/mi pace!!! HOLLER AT A PLAYER! (thats FAST for me).

total: 17miles + 3.5miles (with avg hr: 183bpm - wow thats high)

TVM Masters 11:30am-1pm

total: 3700 yds

Tuesday 12/1

resting hr: 54
soreness/fatigue: 2 - not bad after a hard run for me!

Run 9-10am

Ran a recovery run with Dana. She needed one and we talked a lot (hence our slow slow pace..ha). She has recently moved, so there were a lot of stories about the new house, thanksgiving, holidays, her surgery coming up, etc.

total: 5.6 miles @ 11:02/mi (and avg 140bpm)

TVM Masters 11:30am-1pm

I was expecting Tuesday to still be sprint day (which I can take easy if needed), but TODAY was the first day of December so all the days shifted. It was a good set: 2x150 @ 1:50, 2x150 @1:55, 2x150 @ 2:00, 2x150 @ 2:05 - trying to hold best avg pace. I held 1:45.

total: 4000 yds

Wednesday 12/2

resting hr: 54
soreness/fatigue: 1

Cycle 9am-12pm

Me, Izzie, and Dana rode Calavares and down The Wall and home, I needed a longer ride but oh well. It was cold and we all didn't have time to go out for longer.

total: 40 miles

Thursday 12/3

resting hr: 54
soreness/fatigue: 2

Run 9-11:30am

I NOW HAVE RAN THE FARTHEST I HAVE EVER RUN!! I ran 14.5 miles!! I ran it all on asphalt, and it felt pretty great! Again it felt aerobically great, like I got stronger/faster as I went on.

total: 14.5 miles @ 9:36/mile @ avg 153bpm

Friday 12/4

resting hr: 60
soreness/fatigue: 5 (not bad after that run!)

TVM Masters 5-6:30am

OMG - my first morning practice in MONTHS! Junior Olympics (age group swim meet) was being held at the Pleasanton pool Fri, Sat, and Sun - so in order to get the best spot (as a coach) I got into the pool earlier than all the rest of the coaches as a masters swimmer. Me and Daniel set up our coaches tarps and I swam for only 1 hr so I could get out early and protect our spots.

total: 2500 yds

Saturday and Sunday

Junior Olympics is a trials and finals meet for 14 and under qualifying swimmers. It is a big deal for these young kids, and especially our growing team. This weekend was also the COLDEST its been around here. So, basically you get to the pool at 7am, trials start at 9am, trials ended about 12-1pm, finals started at 3pm, and finals ended about 6-6:30pm. I had saved 2 bike workouts that I could do on the trainer for this weekend, figured I could do it after the meet. I was SO COLD and SO DRAINED from the meet I did not want to work out. The kids I coach did great! I had some good coaching moments with them and also, of course, some adolescent counseling.
