Sorry it's been all week since I've posted. Due to the absence from the computer, I've also fallen behind on all of your blogs. It's supposed to be a cloudy, cold day tomorrow so I'll probably spend some time catching up with the blogosphere.
This week's been fairly busy, but a good busy. I've been able to get in all of my workouts and today I'm taking a rest day. Luck would have it that today is the nicest weather of the week, but that's ok. I don't mind running in the cold so tomorrow will make for nice running weather.
So far this week I've logged 44 miles. I swam and did weights on Monday. My swim was actually going really well until a guy jumped in the lane next to me and lapped me several times. He was flying through the water. It made me feel even slower than normal. I hated him the entire time I was in the water. I finally got a chance to talk to him for a sec and it turns out he swam in college so it made me feel a little better.
Tuesday I went to the "Hood to Coast" documentary. I really enjoyed the movie. I invited a couple of friends I've been trying to convince to do a relay with me and I think I have them hooked now. The talk that evening ended with a declaration to enter the 2012 lottery for Hood to Coast relay. We'll see if we can scrape together a few more folks. I think it would be an incredible experience.
The rest of the week has been pretty routine. Biking, weights, and running. I also had the Thursday night bowling league and squeezed in a run between work and bowling. All in all, everything is going really well at the moment. I went and saw my coach on Wednesday. We looked at some tri bikes together and he told me to let him know when I wanted to purchase one and he'd make sure he was available. It's probably going to happen at some point in February. I'm excited to get a new bike and start hammering out some miles on it. Each passing week restores confidence in my fitness level and I feel like I'm catching back up to where I left off in November. It's nice to be back to training. I've definitely missed it.
