This is one of those days..

There are some days I just feel like I could win any race, anywhere-send me to Hawaii-I can do it! This was one of those days. I plotted out a route on Google Maps that took me out of my usual "up and down Tramway" doldrums and I actually rode into neighborhoods! It was fun until the end of the ride when my little Ipod fell into my wheels and the earphones were trashed-woops..the Ipod is fine (whew)...

Today I feel like an Ironman-what can I say? I did my 3500 yard swim after the bike and felt great. The only problem is when you are swimming and have 1500 yds to go and have to pee, it is just too much trouble to get out and do so, try and get your bathing suit back on, etc. Don't worry-I did NOT pee in the pool! I have trouble doing that even in a lake in my wetsuit (come on-you all have done it). I just swam faster so I could get to the BR ASAP..did the whole workout-yep.

Here are my March totals. Now understand that this is probably more than I have ever trained in my life and Ironman Couer d' Alene is still 12 weeks away..I have decided it is my part time job since it takes up about 3-4 hours a day by the time I dress, travel to and from wherever to train..the only thing is I don't get paid-who cares? Money is over-rated!

March totals:
Swim: 29560.00 Yds-that's 16.8 miles
Bike: 358.20 Miles (all outdoor miles-yea!)
Run: 87.34 Miles
Weight training-8 hrs.

I can't bring myself to pee in the pool either. Not because it's wrong, but because I'm afraid that someone will see. Then they'll tell someone. I don't speed up, though. I just get out and run, freezing, to the RR.

PS: I'm planning a trip to cochiti in my longsleeve wetsuit on the last Wednesday of April. Join me!

Awesome mileage, Debi! You are going to ROCK the IM at Couer d' Alene!!

I don't pee in the pool either, I think that is just gross. Peeing in the lake doesn't seem so bad, except in a wetsuit...that's gross too.

Think of it as extra incentive to speed up your swim!!

Great training!! I'm glad your Ipod is okay.

Those are some serious totals for March. You will do so awesome at Couer d' Alene!!

Good job!

Nice totals and GREAT workout!

I'm glad you didn't pee in the pool. Save that for the lake...

Vickie said...

Good job on the swim. Doh't you know how to pee without taking the suit off??

If I could afford to train part time instead of work, I'd be thrilled! Good for you.

Impressive. most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. Those are some big miles! You are going to do great!

- Now you need to properly break in that wet suite :)
