I have a confession.  Last night was the first time I’ve completed the FULL bike workout . . . and honestly, I feel pretty damn good about that. 

10 Min Warmup
10 x 1:00 (:15 fast, :45 moderate)
Then 3 x 18 min as 6min Steady, Mod/hard, Threshold
Cool down to 1:30

Then my Episcopalian Guilt set in and I took my dog for a nice little mile run in the sleet to complete a brick.

While I was on the bike I watched Bill Maher’s “Religulious” which is, in large part, him having fun at the expense of stupid people, but it’s pretty entertaining.  And, it proves that my memory is shot because about halfway through it I realized I’d already watched it last year.  I don’t know, I’m a little bit of a basket case these days.

On a positive note, I actually went to bed early (around 11) and got up at 6 to complete a missed leg workout with Daniel.  I also got to meet the woman I referred to in an earlier post for reading email while doing the pigeon pose.  It was quite exciting. 

In other good news, it looks like the Fab Five is on the cusp of gaining a few sponsors (though said sponsors don’t realize it yet).  At the very least we received a large donation from a guy who is sponsored by PowerBar and that has my brain churning a bit.  Image
Well, most of Nashville is shut down today because we got a 1/2 inch of snow, but I am looking forward to a light 45 minute run after work and a brick tomorrow and a tempo run on Sunday!  Well, I’m sorta looking forward to all of that. 

Last night, I stumbled onto a 24 weak training program for Ironman Wisconsin and I’m not sure if I’m happy about this, but we are way ahead of that particular schedule and it doesn’t start until March.  I’m thinking at this pace, by the time race day comes, we’ll be at the point when someone asks, “Hey, what’s the workout tomorrow?”  And I reply, “It’s an Ironman.”  And they say, “No sweat.”
