Just a quick update:
I had a very early conference call with folks on the east coast yesterday, which cut in to my regular morning training schedule.
I was able to still get a good bike workout in yesterday by riding to and from work. May not sound like the "best" bike workout, if you equate "best" to "intense", but when you are running short on time, you get in what you can get in.
I swam with my Tri Club's Masters group last night -- had a really great workout over the hour.
warm up 200 each: IM (I do breast and free); freestyle drill; free build
2 sets each: 100 all out, 50 easy, 10 second rest; 100 at mile pace, 5 seconds rest; 100 at mile pace less 5 seconds, 5 seconds rest; 100 mile pace, 50 easy, 30 seconds rest.
300 free, trying to take two less stokes for each 100. I could cut back by one, but not two...
I'm really starting to notice how much daylight has disappeared over the last few weeks. I'm up at 5:00 am and usually out the door for my first workout of the day by 5:30 or 5:45... and it is still dark now.
Last night, the sun was gone within 45 minutes of hitting the pool. We wrap up the outdoor workouts for the summer next week. Then it is back to the boring, 25 meter indoor pool.
Time really flies....
