Busy Week

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.
