1) don't have a hard weight training session before swimming at masters

2) don't move up to a faster lane at masters after a hard weight training workout

3) sometimes bad things lead to good things

4) strained something in my calf while running after masters 
- note to self: don't run after a hard weight training session and swimming at masters

5) decided to go biking since I couldn't finish my run
- note to self: Biking is hard with a strained calf muscle and after an intense weight training session, swimming at masters, then running a few miles

6) rode 35 miles carrying 10 pounds of weights in backpack

7) did  some hill workouts while biking 35 miles carrying 10 pounds of weights with a strained calf muscle after weight training, swimming and running

8) met a fellow cyclist who is visiting from the East Coast and rode some with him

9) fellow cyclist beats me badly going up cemetery hill (cursed weights, why'd I carry them anyway? Cursed wimpy legs. I need more weight training.) 

10) rode hard out to top of some hill (before scenic) and turned around

11) two minutes later I pass Lance Armstrong going the opposite direction

12) decided I should have biked to Scenic with the guy from the East Coast, then Lance would have caught us  and maybe we would have struck up a conversation

13) would have been too star-struck to talk, better that I turned around

14) Conclusion: today was a hard day. Injuries, sore muscles, disappointment. I'm tired.

PLAN FOR TOMORROW: Weights; swimming; running; biking to Scenic

At least you have good reason to be out there training. The colder weather is finally getting to me and I am not so keen on going out. Anyway, a little rest from training will probably do me some good. There is only a short "winter" here.


This week is our last week in our brick and mortar house. We have started sleeping in our fifth wheel, going to work during the day and sp...
