Monday: 1 mile swim: 49 minutes

Tuesday 2 mile run
1.25 mile swim: 57 minutes

I gave my legs a break from the 70 mile weekend on Monday, by deciding to go for a swim. I didn't have much rythm, it didn't feel nearly as good as the 2.5 mile swim I had the other week but it was OK. There was a pretty humorus moment that happened after the swim, I will share it now. As I walked into the locker room and was changing out of my swim suit I saw this big black guy getting out of the shower. He walked over to his locker to get his towel and put on his clothes. as I got dressed I could here him mumble something under his breath as he fumbled with his lock. As it turned out he had forgotten his combonation. Here he was, this 300+ pound man TOTALLY naked sitting on the bench with all of his closed locked in his locker. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I had to cover my face in my towel and look away because I was cracking up. When I left he still hadn't gotten in. I didn't know what he was going to do. It isn't like he could have gotten a worker to help him. He couldn't leave the locker room, he was completely nude! I am still laughing about it now.

and now back to my work outs...

I am happy with the way my legs feel after the weekend. I have no pain or soreness, only general muscle fatigue. I wanted to go for a 10 mile trail run today but my legs were still pretty fatigued and I want to save them for tomorrow when I will be doing a group training run on the Step Stones 50k course at Mt. Airy Forest. I plan to do 16-20 tomorrow, so today after a short run I went for another swim. Today's swim felt much better than yesterday, but I don't have any funny stories to tell about the locker room...

awesome. The only running I have been doing is about a block at a time with the kids....but I also feel great, and raring to go. I wanted to do a trail run tonight, but also saved it for my 5k tomorrow. Then I can just get back to training. We also had an adventure in the woods walking up and down some creeks in the water, and just exploring one of the parks we ran in Saturday....

I got my new Cascadias and also ordered three new Nathan bottles like the one I had this weekend. Most of the race I will use two bottles, but I will also have my crew ready with my hydration pack for any longer sections in the heat of the day just in case. Like, if there is a section beyond 6 miles in the daytime, I want to have it on hand in case I want it.

Josh,

It is a good thing you had that towel. It would have been something to watch him chase you around the locker room naked. LOL

Good thing he didn't see you laughing at him cause he might have chosen to spend the rest of his naked time in the locker chasing you around! Pretty darned funny story.
