Back at it

Well...last night was a tough one to watch....down 11 at the half, every time the Buckeyes seemed to close the gap down in the 2nd half, Florida would hit a clutch 3 pt'er and build the lead up again. Oh well....hopefully Oden and Conley stay at Ohio St.....but I'm pretty sure Oden will leave for the $$$ the NBA will be offering.

Back to the training.

Got into Vic yesterday afternoon, and headed out for a 90' ride with Colin and AP. We did the seaside loop, which was a great ride. You get to see a lot of different areas of Vic while riding.

I've been battling a bit of a nasal cold since yesterday morning. I got a good night's sleep last night, and I'll be going to bed early tonight as well. Felt stuffed up this morning, and could feel it during workouts.

We had a speed workout this morning at the pool.

400 warm-up, 4 X 100 IM, 200 kick, 6 X 50 (25 fast, 25 easy), 100 easy

2 X 100 blast on 2:00 - opening race speed
8 X 100 on 1:45 - mid race pace

We did this set twice. Fell off a lot on the 2nd round, wasn't feeling that great in the water.
We warmed down, and the total workout was 4100m

We had about 30' or so after the swim until we started our 2nd workout, a 60' run down at Beacon Hill park. We started out with 40' including some strides, then we had a 10' tempo effort, followed by 10' easy cool down.

AP had a second swim today, so we headed over to Commonwealth Pool, and while he did his 3000m swim, I hit the steam room, sauna, and hot tub, in an attempt to help clear up my sinuses. Hopefully, I can get rid of this head cold pretty quickly, and get back to normal!!
