Tuesday gym

Good session with P. - various core stuff, squats and lunges, etc. It is only a fifty-minute appointment, it passes by too quickly! That said, I did not seem to have the vim to swim afterward, in spite of my belief (formed in the days of music-learning, not on any athletic basis) that 4 sessions of practice between lessons is more valuable than three!

I will have to see how the next couple days go in terms of work before I know whether I can fit in an extra session of fly practicing. I am running at an evilly early hour tomorrow am with H. (I have to have at least one workout with her before she does Ironman Louisville, I am very eager to hear all about her training and plans and so forth, and our schedules have just not clicked this summer at all - she has kids and an office job and tends to spend weekends on Fire Island, I have no kids and no office job and am accordingly not an early riser - however I have bitten the bullet and will meet her in front of her building tomorrow at 6:30am for 6 miles in Central Park); I am swimming some kind of workout with lanemate Joe at 11 on Thursday, but I get as much say as I like in what it is; I am meeting Triathlete L. at 1 or 1:15 on Thursday on the NJ side of the bridge for a long ride to Piedmont/Nyack.

I can do some fly and drill stuff mixed in with whatever I'm doing with Joe, but I should try and have at least one other swim - maybe early afternoon tomorrow, if I get enough done in the am? Hmmm, I had thought maybe a bike ride - it is the problem with triathlon training, there always is something pressing to be done!

Swimming lesson at 7:30 Friday morning, then another trainer appointment at 9 - gotta figure out what I can have as digestible nutrition in the gap between! Maybe just Gatorade and run a few miles on the indoor track if I have the time, make it a solid endurance workout...

(And I'm going to join Triathlete L. for her long run on Saturday afternoon, though I will probably truncate it at 8 or 10 rather than doing the whole 12 - I've been running very little and don't want to injure myself, though I am also eager to get back up to a two-hour run sooner rather than later...)

(I AM MENTALLY HYPERACTIVE THIS WEEK! The book is in good train towards being done for Monday, and I am actually hoping it might really sorted out by Saturday afternoon - I am sure it would be done already if the Worm Triathlon had not tunneled so many holes through my gray matter!)

Blackie might be surprised to have you padding around so early in the morning!
