DC loop this morning. Temps at 24 F. I thought we were past the cold stuff... good thing I haven't planted the peas yet. A little more stiff and achy than last week. But maybe it's just Monday. Came home and stretched good. Then headed to the pool. 

35 min swim at Summit. I can drop Myler off at the daycare at Summit for 90 mins. So it will work out good to allow me to swim while he plays. I've never been a gym joining type of guy. So I wont start now. I'm only doing a month to month thing... hoping it will only take a couple months to warm up enough so I can swim at the lake. But for now I'll try to really get in as much as possible since it's only 2 miles from my house.

DC loop. 24 F this morning first thing but I didn't run until after dropping Myler at school so around 9:30 and by then it was pretty nice out in the sun. Starting our adding on project here at the house. Turning the garage into rooms and building another garage. So I've had lots of work to do just in prep. Myler tried to help but was more work... but we had fun wheelbarrowing bark.

19 mile run this morning. Started out with the guys on the regular Wed's loop. It's 10.2 miles long. Then I headed out for another loop. Cut it off a little short of a full loop by skipping the park. But I knew I had to run again with Misty so saved some miles for later. 

I just wanted to see what a good long run felt like on the body. It was ok. Hip held about where it's been. Overall I'm just out of shape and the hard parts of the run were do to that more than anything. But I didn't die off and held basically the same pace on the second lap as we did  on the first. 7:34 avg. Never tried to push... just wanted some long miles. 

3 more miles. After the long run I had about an hour to recover before going out with Misty. We just went over to the park, did two loops then came back. She rocked it today hitting a 9:34 avg for the run... way faster than last week.

B-hills loop. Felt pretty good the day after the long run. Just really slow. I only went 6 today because there's just a lot to get done here at home.

Over to the DC and back. Felt really slow on the way over. The heavy legs loosened up a little on the way back so pace was a little faster then but still slow. Hip seems to be ok. The only issue is sometimes it almost feels like it could pop out of socket. It just feels really weak and unstable. But the painful grinding, tightness from before seems to have passed.

15.2 mile run. Went to Summit to run with the club. Steven and Ben took me on a tour of the fields. Steady run but not fast. Felt pretty good and in control of the situation all the way thru the finish. Just trying to rebuild my great wall of China fitness base that was lost. Best week in a long long time. 

Now off on the cycle. 

56.5 mile ride today. Great weather helped this to be the best ride for me in a while. Legs seemed to have some juice today as well. Felt in control the whole ride. Even up Snow Canyon I kept it in check whereas the last couple time up I've basically tapped out. Upped the results from 17.4 mph two weeks ago, 17.6 last week to 18.7 mph on this ride. Basically hit the 56 mile mark at 2:59:30. I'm gonna have a hard time going much under 3 hours in the half IM for the bike leg. It was super busy in town today and so those sections with traffic might have been a little faster but I'm not taking as many chances now post wreck.
