The reason I'm hurried? There's a nice post-run bowl of BC blackberry cobbler waiting for me. We had some after dinner last night, and it was mmm-mmmm good.
Easy run today. Half hour warm up walk gradually increasing speed. Ran 5 K nice and easy, with a break in the middle to talk to a buddy I haven't seen for a while. Then a 10 min cool down, followed by some stretching. A significant part of the run was done breathing through my nose as a way of keeping my speed down. A comfortable pace for my legs was just at that transition between nose breathing, and needing to breath through my mouth every now and then. I wanted to work back into this running thing nice and easy. My calfs have felt tight ever since the race, and haven't particularly felt better from the rest. If anything they are tightening up even more. The run felt good.
Swim 2.0 hr
Bike 1.5 hr
Run 2.5 hr
Total 6.0 hr
I suppose I need to annotate that a little. The bike was all easy spin pretty well. The running was a Chi Running class that included some standing around, but also some hill running. Overall, the running was all easy effort.
Next week I'll increase the time a little bit more; I'm still looking for some longer rides. *IF* the weather cooperates! It's been cool and cloudy with periodic showers. I'll put up with that on a ride if the workout plan calls for it, but during my off-plan period, when I'm supposed to be having fun? NOT! But neither do I want to get back on the spin trainer.
