PM - Almost didn't make it to the Union Station FFC for Triathlete boot camp with Trainer Josh. It was down to the wire but at 5:05 I put the internet on hold and
AM - Reflecting back on this morning's swim I have to assume coach Liz created this
PM - an easy 5 miler around the lower OP. Ran just after rush hour in all my reflective and blinky light glory. At this time of year I'm pretty certain that most drivers see me as some sort of Christmas decoration....I just blend into the scenery a little bit. Gotta be on high alert running out there during the winter blackness. Made it home in time for a special night and time Shark Tank!
Long trainer ride today. Finished off my DVR'd Lettermans. National treasure and legendary funny man, Bill Murray paid a visit. Bill always delivers. Didn't want to overdue the workout....The Triathlife was headed to The Joffrey Ballet's Nutcracker later in the day. The ballet is a fine place to fall asleep but I really want to be a team player this time out. Hooked up later in the evening for dinner at the Park Grill with The Peter Schmit's #5, his lovely wife and their little Schmit.
Long slow run. Been absorbing the importance of keeping the long run plenty slow. Its keeping me healthy. There's no structure to the long run at this point....just loading the Schmitty endurance tank. The Triathlife headed off for a little mid morning brunchness at The Marion Street Cheese Market in the OP. I recommend the crispy oat cakes...if you're a wee man like me you will want to share. Plenty rich, plenty dense and plenty good.
