1 hour swimming nice and steady followed by 3 mile TM run. Feeling better than I have in months! I hope it stays that way.

I'll get my PT work done tonight watching the final wild card game. Hopefully it's a good one.

I readjusted my aerobars to a mor comfortable position which I loved this morning and it made me a bit faster than normal, but now I've somehow pinched my gear shifting cable and I can't shift to all my gears.  Guess I'll have to take the bike in and get professional help.  Anyways, I rode 20 miles with 1300 feet vert.

Then I ran 3 miles on the TM.  My calf still feels 100% and my hammy felt better today than it has since I strained it, I'd say 90%!!!!

My nightly PT work is starting to pay off.  I'll get some more done tonight.

Swim:  500 m warm up, then 24 x 100 m at 2:30.

3 mile TM run

Tonight, more PT work.  So, so close to being 100%!!!  But then again, is anyone ever really 100%?

19 miles cycling with aerobars fully functional.  I had to have the guys at the shop put them on properly for me so my gear cables aren't pinched and I can no use all my gears with the aerobars.  I was about 4 minutes faster today on my usual before work ride that I've been doing for a while. Yay! Magic of aerobars I guess. Or maybe I'm getting in better fitness???

Then 3 mile on TM at a decent pace this morning.  I felt good to let my legs run, but I did feel a tiny little something in my calf after I was done.  I'll monitor that closely.

More PT work tonight, especially on that calf.

10 mile trail run. It was my longest run since May and I could tell that my running fitness is lacking.  
 

65 minute swim which ended up being exactly 2 miles. I'm hoping to get to where I can do 2 miles in 60 minutes but I'm really happy where my swimming is right now. 
 

I moved literally a ton of rock doing landscaping. My back was not happy with me by the end. 
 

PT work in the evening.

55 mile ride on a crazy windy morning. Boy do I hope it is not windy on race day. It is so much tougher both physically and mentally. 
 

PT work while watching playoff football. I think my body needs a good hot tub soak tonight.  Good thing tomorrow is Sunday because I need a rest day.
