      Morning everyone!!

       

      Got in a swim and a run yesterday for about the 6th or 7th time and felt the same as is I only ran so my body is

      starting to get used to the double workouts!

       

      Headed off to the pool for laps right now. Then coached swim tonight. Last week he said that everything about my form/stroke was good but we needed to get the cadence in my arms higher and he was going to work me hard this week.........I'm a little scared!!!

       

      Re the tights: hubby was never a tights guy but the last 4 or 5 years he has become a convert. It's OK with me, he has a really hot butt!!LOL

       

      Got an email last night that our travel group to Ireland is up to 30 people now!! This is going to be fun!

       

      Have a good one folks!!

        Good morning, all.  Buh Bye, January!

         

        I didn't sleep very well last night.  I woke up at about 3:30am and couldn't really get back to sleep.  I'm going to try and double today - 6 in the morning and 4 in the evening.  I think I have time to fit in a recovery run this morning.  The winds are gusting up to 50mph, though.  I'm thinking I can still run outside since I'm not running for speed but it could be comical.  Big work day ahead but I'm thinking of doing my second run downtown after the last thing that (as of now) I know has to be done today, which should be over by 4:30, and then commuting home.

         

        Just B.S., Good job on the double...  In those temps, I would think tights are a must.

         

        SIAR, LOL - "not hiding all this effort".  SMH.  You're too funny.

          Just BS--  Good morning sounds like fun, are you doing a Tri?

           

          I'm doing around 3 miles before crossfit, then another 3-4 miles after work.  Hoping one of these days I get all my mileage in.

            Good Morning Friends,

             

            SRD for me. I've got a hot date with my foam roller this evening.

             

            Beth - Enjoy the double swim day!  30 people on your trip sounds really fun!

             

            Julia - Try not to get blown away out there! I watched the trees bend on my drive into the office and was grateful for the rest day today.

             

            Jodi - I'm not familiar with cross fit.  I'll Google that this morning.  Have a fun workout!  The link you tried to post last night isn't showing up.  Can you post it again?

              Morning!  I have 5 miles later tonight.  Working from home which I am happy about since I do not want to be at the office today with all the drama that will unfold.  I woke up with a headache, pfffttt.

               

              Hope everybody is having a great day.

                Finally PRed!!!

                  Hi everyone! I dunno what was up with my Garmin last night, it would not upload the data, Garmin test page could not see it, so updated all the software, etc. and still nothing, then this morning it finally just worked. I am going to try to get a new Garmin fairly soon because this one has been acting so quirky. Need to get a double in today to get my miles, going to do a few extra since the weather shortened my planned miles yesterday.

                   

                  Thanks everyone for the thoughts on my training. I definitely think I need to mix up the training some and try some different things, and have been doing that somewhat already. For this cycle I went back to planning my own training, since that's what I was doing when I set my PRs. I feel like I'm making progress this cycle just based on how I feel and how I'm doing in key workouts, but if this cycle doesn't result in a decent time (not trying to PR because of the hills), I will try something different.

                   

                  Back for personals later, have a great day everyone!

                    On the road today for a meeting.  I was hoping for 250 miles for January and needed 11.5 today.  We have 30-40mph winds, but it's 54 degrees!  Keep in mind it was 6 two mornings ago and by Saturday it's supposed to be bacvk down to 3.

                     

                    I did 1.5...the rain started....I went back to bed and slept some more.  Oh well, 240 is OK.

                      Had the alarm set for 0245, got up and took a look outside.  All the trees were leaning sideways and the wind was howling, so I went back to bed.  I was supposed to do 2wu+8MP+2cd but instead attacked the treadmill at work and only did 2wu+2MP+2cd.  I'll see if I can just do today's workout tomorrow as I did last week because of weather considerations.  Worst case I might have to do it Saturday followed on Sunday by an 18 mile long run.  I'm sure the Hansons' schedule would frown upon back to back substantive days.

                            Just wanted to add a big ol' YAY ME!  I have a new monthly mileage PR of 216. Some of you folks will blow that away, but I'm happy. :-)

                             

                            Damaris - Enjoy the 5 later. Kudos for dodging the drama at work.

                             

                            Jodi - Thanks for the link.  Congrats on getting published.  That's very cool!

                             

                            NTS - Have fun on your double. I stayed far away from offering you advice. You are a lot more experienced than I am in the running department.  The only nugget I can add is that we all get to define our own definition of success with this sport.  Maybe if you don't achieve your upcoming goals you should redefine what success means to you?

                             

                            Of course this is coming from a complete newbie that has yet to run a race and not PR.  Not because I'm an awesome runner (well not JUST because I'm an awesome runner) but mostly because I'm new.  I'll probably plateau in the next year or so and we'll all see how well I take my own advice then!

                             

                            Marco - 240 is awesome. Glad you decided to stay dry.

                             

                            RVD - I am always amazed at how you get up so early.  Great job getting those TM miles in and good luck juggling the schedule around.

                            Go figure

                              Beth...Nice job on the swim/run.  I didn't feel too much difference for those, but definitely noticed the fatigue when trying to run off the bike.  Has your coach either counted or had you count how many strokes you're taking for a lap?  I'm just curious as I take way too many still.  That's funny about your DH and the tights.  Running does wonders for a good butt though.  Your Ire trip is going to be a blast!

                               

                              Julia...Ugh, I didn't get any sleep last night either.  I almost felt like I had restless leg syndrome or something.  Have you ever seen those videos of dogs that running in their sleep and their legs are going a mile a minute?  That's what mine felt like.  I hope the wind didn't blow you away on your recovery run.  Good luck getting everything done today.

                               

                              Jodi...Wow, a double run and cross fit.  Good stuff!

                               

                              Scott...How'd you miss the whole cross fit craze?  I don't have the upper body strength to even consider it.  Enjoy the rest and roller.

                               

                              Docket...sounds like a good plan staying away from the drama.  Enjoy the 5 miles.

                               

                              Swift...That's odd re your Garmin.  Sometimes those things are just fickle.  I think they're doing some site work this weekend too, which always take longer than they say.  Good luck with the double today.  As for your training, I think just staying positive like you are is a big step.  You're feeling results in your body, and that should show up in your races too.

                               

                              Marco...Ha, I could almost feel your internal struggle about running/not running in your post.  240 is still a solid month for sure!

                               

                              RVd...yep, Hansons may frown.  Sometimes it's better to just let a workout go if you're not able to get it done.  It's just one of many, many bricks in the foundation.  At least you were able to get some work in today.

                                Hey guys, I've got 10 min warm up in the elliptical, 4 miles on the tm and then 10 min cool down on the bike. I hate the treadmill and am not lookin forward to it but at least it's only 4 miles. whew! after my scheduled workout I"m gonna hit up the trails again with a different demo. Don't know if I told you guys but I broke the last one. Oops!Blush it's funny now cause all the guys call me killer. when I was taken the other demo home last night they kept tellin me "don't break it". lol Fortunately the frames have a lifetime warranty so we're just waiting for the replacement. I can't wait to get out on this one. I'm testing 2 different ones to see which one I want to buy. Luckily for me we had demos for the 2 models I've been lookin at. WooHoo

                                 

                                JUSTBS - enjoy your workout today. I'm likin my 2 aday workouts as well. I really feel like I'm gettin things done. I just hope it shows in my next race

                                 

                                JULIA - winds were bad here last 2 days. upto 50mph gusts. not exactly what I wanted to be in. luckily the winds stayed away yesterday till I was almost done with my track workout. hope you're able to get your runs in. sorry about the little sleep. that was be after I banged up my leg from the mountain bike ride. I"m sleepin through the nights now. lol

                                 

                                JOJO - sounds like a day of fun. enjoy

                                 

                                INS - enjoy your date. Big grin I'll be on mine today too.

                                 

                                DAMARIS - we had a meeting at work last night that I forgot about. it was a good thing I missed it. I heard it was nothing but a gripe session.

                                 

                                NTS - I'm enjoying the workouts coach has assigned me. it mixes it up for me. plus i know what I'm doin from one day to the next. I'm used to planning my own schedule and running quite a bit more than what I am right now. I"m kinda freaked out but trying to trust her. I'll be sending her an email later today with a few questions so i can better understand what she's doing and try to see what she see's

                                 

                                MARCO - 240 is more than ok. thats an awesome number. I"m barely at 180. have a safe trip. PS - the closer the woodlands race gets the mroe I think about you 2. sometimes it just sucks to live so far away from ppl we've met.

                                 

                                RV - nice call. I won't run in winds like that. it's just too dangerous. you don't know what will come flying. IMO
