I had to drive to the gym this morning since I don't have my headlight yet (work perk).
250 warm up
Intervals - Effort (H) Hard, E (Easy)
350 - moderate
Total yardage 2950
This swim was hard and the distance felt longer, I could have swore it was meters but I know all 24hr Fitness pools are yards, at least in the Portland area. I'm sure it was just swimming some place new.
Post swim I made an expedient transitions.....Ahahahha! Ok, who am I kidding here? No one. My PLAN was to make a quick transition; what it turned into was a 20 min struggle to get al my S%#$! in my backpack. Funny thing, I weighed my backpack before I left the house, this mother$#@%&^ weighed in at 16.5 lbs.....and that didn't even account for the food and wet towel and purse I had to cram in post swim. So we're probably looking at 20lbs when all was said and done. And I thought during T1 was crazy, never experienced vertigo and balance issues like I did today. Thank goodness I won't usually have to carry that much crap. Since it was my second day on the job I still had stuff to bring to work. I couldn't leave my 32oz carton of Almond Milk at home, could I? Anywho, I guess you could say the ride to work was adventurous. Didn't have much energy and climbing those damn hills with that stupid bag didn't help anything.
It was HOT on the way home, reached the 90s today. Luckily I was able to unload a good portion of my stuff and only had to haul 10lbs or so back. Ride home was frustrating. Drivers are inconsiderate and rude. I'd think that at least motorcyclists would have common respect, but nope, none what so ever. I had 3 guys take their "free" right and cut me off as I was descending. It's only "free" if no one is coming you A-holes. Somehow I made it home in one piece.
Total ride round trip was 24 miles with a ton of climbing, idiot drivers and one too many red lights.
I'm going to have to work on upping my caloric intake again. I feel fatigued today.
BTW, got a bad ass Bolero free at work today :) I <3 my job.
Oh yea and I wanted to share some graphs I got of my HIM summer training season. Enjoy!
