Date, Workout, Times, Notes, Photo

>> Sunday, February 21, 2010

Here's the format:
• Date: workout, times. Workout notes (no longer than 10 words). [PHOTO]

• Sun, 2/14: 10.05 mile long run in 1:09:46 (6:56 / mile pace). Pushed hard for the middle miles. Decent workout.

Wind-burned belly post-workout

• Sun, 2/14: CVA Tri Club WO: over half mile WU, nearly 2.5 mile run. Happy to see a few students interested in working out!

• Mon, 2/15: 35:00 of weights: only chest, upper and lower back, and core.

• Tues, 2/16: 30:00 of weights: only biceps, triceps, shoulders, and lats.

[picture unrelated]

• Tues, 2/16: Ladder intervals at the Dome: 600m, 1200m, 1800m, 1200m, 600m. Hard workout. Nice run.

GreenKing snapped a photo as I was finishing up an interval.

• Wed, 2/17: Rest.

[picture unrelated]

• Thurs, 2/18: 32:00 of upper body weights at the Y.

• Thurs, 2/18: 1 hour of Spinervals in the basement. Rode with Pharmie. It was sweaty.

I wasn't wearing this for the spin - I was using it to wipe my face.

• Fri, 2/19: 3 x 800 at the Pool: 13:52, 13:49, 13:45.

(That totally counts as 1 word.)

• Fri, 2/19: One and a half hours of snowshoeing next to Pharmie as she skied. Just a fun "date." This one calls for 2 photos:

Pharmie skiing with Downtown Minneapolis in the distance.

Skis and snowshoes after an hour and a half.

p.s. That rant about Jen Harrison is all in good fun. I love that women. And I love Julia for telling us when she swims so we can join her. But I hate Jen's workouts that she makes Julia do. What do I look like? A swimmer? Hell no. ;)

Hmmm....I BET your swimming will get better this year if you did JUST one of my swim workouts per week. That is a bet. And, you can be a swimmer if you want to. And, my theory: If you are going to swim, SHOW UP and swim. None of this pussy-footing around how to really workout in the pool.


And, a proper warmup is an excellent idea! lol

I find it strangely comforting to see that other people actually do get goggle eyes. I seem to always be the only one who does....

Great pics and love the Lyin' King poster.

So, whenever people mentioned you in their posts, for some reason I thought that you were from California or somewhere else. I love that you are from the cities- makes me feel back at home. I went to U of MN for undergrad and just graduated in May and now am in Florida for grad school, but I miss the cities every single day (except the snow). Love the picture of Pharmie with the skyline in the background!

Holy shit. I read about you people and your white stuff and I know that it snows and all but really, it never really hit home until I saw Pharmie on skis right where you live! I've not experienced snow outside a ski resort we had to drive many hours to get to. It just isn't in my comprehension to have snow in a place you live. That photo of Pharmie really brought it home. you do snow day in and day out. what a concept! It is totally blowing my mind (especially since it was 90F/32C here today).

Hi Steve,
Thanks for sharing the pictures:) I thought that you liked swimming:) Your hell no comment makes me feel better! I suck at swimming and am super jealous of amyone who can swim better than me:) I hope that you have a good week Steve!!

Steve, did you pick up snow shoes????

Coach Liz 7:08 AM, February 22, 2010  

Ok, I about peed my pants when I scrolled down over the Nunchucks photo. My husband was asking me what was up.

Yes, I am also glad that I am not the only one with unsightly goggle rims around my eyes after I finish a swim.

I loved the Berenstain Bears! I don't remember that book at all. The titles is followed by that "First Time" Book seal--it's too much. My childhood is now ruined!

Thanks for your comments! Have a great day!
