6 mile run.  Miles 4 and 5 at tempo effort which was slower this morning probably because I was running into the wind, but maybe my legs were a bit tired as well.  6:49 averge tempo pace.

Lower body and core work.

36 mile bike finishing with a nice 6 mile 1200 ft climb. Felt good to get out there and push on the bike. My left IT band tightened up near the end though. I'll have to roll it really well the next few days. 
Upper body weights and core.

7 miles 6 at a very easy relaxed pace and 1 mile of hill sprints.  My legs felt really good today.

I'll do lower body and core work tonight.

It was a little breezey this morning so the lake was choppy causing me to be a little slower than usual on my 1 mile swim.

Then 13 mile bike.

Upper body and core tonight.

I took a complete rest day yesterday.

This morning was swim day.  I did just over 1 mile.  I normally do more on Thursday but it was pretty windy and therefore really choppy out there.  I'm glad I did it to get used to swimming in bad conditions, but cutting it short was the right call.

Upper body and core tonight.

10 slow miles. 
Summer is definitely here. It was almost 100 degrees by the time I finished. My left calf was bugging me by the end. I'm not sure what I did that caused it. Maybe it was the jumping rope I did Monday evening. I didn't start having any issues though until this morning and I haven't run since Monday. I really wish this would quit happening. 
 

Lower body and core work.

I wasn't feeling well this morning so I skipped my bike ride, but I did do upper body weights and core later in the morning.

5 mile TM run in hotel before heading back home.

It was a rough week for training.  I walked a ton but I did not do much else.  We were busy and I got a really bad cold last Tuesday which is a lot better now but I'm still not 100%.

I dropped Cade's car off at the body shop.  He backed into his friends car.  Then I ran home.  I can't believe how hard it was to go 4 miles slowly.  This respiratory infection is realy keeping me down.

Lower body, core, then 1 mile on TM. My energy level is still crazy low. That mile on the TM was slow and difficult.
