Yup, our coaches would always prefer to see you negative split a race, but holding a steady pace is fine too. "Banking time" is pretty much a myth, and a recipe for the kind of disaster race I had. My overall time wasn't shamefully bad or anything, but my splits tell a pretty dismal story! Oh well, the way I look at it is that you have to take a lesson out of every race you do, both the good ones and the bad ones. I definitely reinforced the "make a plan and stick to it" lesson. It's all experience.

My spin class instructor wasn't able to do the regular full 60 minute class so she had a super intense 30 minute class, yikes!

Sunday: lots of walking for post-race recovery
Monday: 2250 yard swim
Tuesday: team track practice, main set was 3x1 mile at sub-10k race pace, but I was still shot from Saturday's race so I did 3 miles easy instead (turns out I was getting sick, so I skipped today's swim workout...)

Heavy legs today, so threw out the plan to do an Insanity workout and instead took a nice, brisk walk with my dog for about an hour.

Back with crossfit. Aiming for 3x/week. Today we did 400m warm up, progressively heavier dead lifts (my max 1 rep was 190!) and a few sets of lighter DLs. Then the workout of the day was 50-40-30-20-10, double-unders and sit-ups. I can't do double-unders so I did singles and doubled them. My time was 8:30 which was better than I expected.

Back + bicep workout. I accidentally used the wrong weights on my lat pulldowns (too light), so I had to do them all over again. Which resulted in 7 sets of lat pulldowns instead of the 3-4 that I usually do. That's also the last back exercise I do before I move on to the bicep, so my back was already pretty exhausted. And lat pulldowns are my absolute least favorite exercise, ever. So that sucked. But my back muscles vibrated like crazy when I was done, and I love that. Hoping for some serious soreness tomorrow!

NROLFW workout and hopefully an evening run later. I upped my weights and really crushed the lunges and lower body stuff so my legs are already tired. It might be a pretty relaxed jaunt.

A technique session, concentrating on absorbing the shock more effectively and safely from the downswing of a jerk and more effective and energy-saving swings and jerks.

I tried a Body Flow class for the first time ever. It's yoga + tai chi + pilates. It was alright. I loved the teacher, which makes all the difference in the world.

So since I've been living out of my truck, I decided that how I would shower is that I would work out a a community center I like, then use thier shower after. $4.50 a drop-in. So the first week of August I did this every day, then I went to CA and stayed with friends, but now that I'm back in PDX I'm doing it again every day. I love it. It feels so good to be working out, I always struggled with motivation to actually DO it. I hope I keep up with it once I get a place and stop needing it for shower purposes.

I'm working on upper body strength/muscle tone. My legs are pretty ripped from biking, but I throw in a quick work of those too so I don't feel so off-balanced I guess. I really want to have sexy arm/shoulder definition. I'd love some ab definition at some point but I can't really bring myself to do sit-ups. I feel silly doing those at a gym, since they're something that can be done at home. But I never did them at home even though I wanted to for years, so I don't know.

15km of biking, and ...an hour spent uprooting a hedge?

Mars, i have such a hard time getting myself to do situps/crunches too... don't know what it is about them. i find planks slightly more bearable. just slightly.

kinda, it's like if you were about to do pushups but instead of supporting yourself with your hands, you put your elbows and forearms down in a tripod and just hold that position until you can't take the ab burn anymore. (i hope that makes sense)

You can do planks on your hands, actually I find it more comfortable than my elbows. I did planks last night as part of my workout, 3 x 60 seconds.
