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!

I am wishing the rain away down here in Tennessee too!!

Hope you can get some relief for your leg...stuff like that can really be annoying.

Good luck in your Duathlon!

I don't know what the heck to wear on the bike in this rain!

See you at the picnic tomorrow!

Mojo said...

Wow, is the bike ride you have today for 128 minutes? That's a pretty long ride! I don't envy you having to ride in the rain. Do you have a trainer?

Good luck at the Duathlon this weekend! Make sure you drink some fluids! :)

Yup, long rain ride on tap for me. Must keep telling myself this is whoosing out!

No trainer, I am hoping to buy my wetsuit this month, heart rate monitor sometime later this year and a trainer before the snow comes later this year. Year one of getting into tri's is $$$$$$!

What day is your normal day off? I hope you are taking one day of each week. I use Friday as my rest day. Sleep in a little and relax for the rest of the day.

Don't let the rain deter you. You may have to race in it so you may as well train in it.

I think you will be happy with ART. I see Dr. Zak in Westlake and he has helped alot.
