I just didn't feel like getting out of bed this morning, so laid there for a good hour thinking about it, then when I finally got up I only had a little time to exercise so I decided to do a quit TM run. I ran nice and easy for a mile when suddenly my right calf did the thing that makes me stope running.  So I immediately stopped and walked another mile then did some stretching.  It's so frustrating that my calves suck.  I wish I knew what to do about it.  I have tried everything I can think of to no avail.

Tonight I did a Zwift race. I did really well staying with the lead pack the whole way and then ending with a sprint.  My cylcing is really improving with Zwift.

I forgot my watch when I went to the pool this morning so all I know is that I swam for 65 minutes, just keeping it nice and steady and easy.  It was a nice long swim.  I need to start building my long swims up until I get to 90 minutes.  

6 mile Zwift race.  It was fast and furious.  I'm now in the B category so to keep up I have to go all in.  Luckily it was short because I was spent by the end.

56 minute Zwift workout for about 18 miles.  Then 1 mile TM walk and some calf raises and stretching.

I was so tired all day tod ay.  Not sure why.  Tonight I just soaked in the hot tub for a while and it feel really good.

I woke up feeling well rested this morning, but unfortunately it didn't translate into a good swim.  After a warm up it did 20 x 100 m repeats on the 2:30, but I was so slow today.  Not sure why.  I finished the workout but the second half I was doing between 2:10 and 2:15 which is rather embarassing.  Less than a year ago I was doing this same workout keeping all 20 under 1:45.  Next week I'm going to start swimming 3 days a week.  Hopefully that will get me back to where I was.

Core work. 
15 mile Zwift ride. 
10 minutes jump rope. 
4 mile trail run. 
I made it through my run without hurting my calf!!! That was the number one goal today. Now hopefully I can start building mileage back up.

Then 46 mile Zwift race I did well, hanging with the pack until about mile 28, then I cracked and had to ride the last 18 miles solo and slower.
