Swim was nice and relaxing this morning. Half an hour or so, thinking lots about stroke. 15 minutes of core in the dive tank.
Knee exercises when I got home. I have 28 of them to choose from. I expect a few of them are going to be like the first time I tried side plank leg lifts. There I was, telling that leg to go up, and nothing was moving, except my ass falling back to the mat a few seconds later.
Spin class was the hardest I've worked on the bike in a long time. Chris has lots of fun stuff, and we were doing some short hard stuff. Really hard stuff. My knee was feeling good and I decided to go for it on the hard parts. Did I mention Chris had us doing some short, really really HARD stuff? I pedaled myself into feeling a bit queasy for a short while, beginning to regret dinner, sweating a bucket, and feeling kind of clammy about it. I backed off then. I think I set a new personal speed record on the trainer though, 78 Kph via 138 rpm in the hardest gear. That did not last long, I assure you. My heart rate peaked out at 156, which is just into zone 5, and that's the highest I've seen it in a long time.
