Rain rain go away!!!!!!!
I need to change this training schedule of mine. The one I keep trying to follow has my long day on Friday, yet Fridays always seem to be the day I have the least amount of time. They are the day that I relax a bit generally as I gear up for my weekends. Typically I get my swim in and put off the biking until Saturday.
Training schedule calls for 128 M on the bike today. My AM swim was not quite the length it should have been but at least I managed to get my session in. Stupid snooze bar got me again! Tonight I am actually happy my husband has a shooting match so I will have a couple hours to myself to actually get my biking in on Friday for once...although it would be much more enjoyable if it was not pouring when that time came. I keep telling myself I will do my entire biking session tonight even if it does rain. I figure the rain is in the forecast through early next week and I may just have to race in it on Sunday so I might as well just get used to dealing with it. I am just not sure I am really going to enjoy my ride so much in the rain.
Today I also have my first appointment with Cleveland Spine & Performance Health and Dr. Keyes, who is an ART-certified provider for Ironman USA - Lake Placid. I continue to have pain in my left leg which I think is my hip flexor causing pain that runs down into my inner knee cap. It seems to come and go in terms of how much it bothers me and I figure since this has been going on for months, I should probably get it checked out to see if I can do something about it. About time, I know!
This weekend I have a couple things planned which include the Cleveland Tri Club Picnic Saturday and the Stow Duathlon Sunday...both of which I am looking forward to!
