ready to lose your mind.. !!! That's about what it's been for the last couple of weeks. My cold has been getting better and really only seams to be just nagging a little at me every now and then, but mostly I notice it when I do get out and train. My heart rate is much higher than I would like it to me but again, what can ya do.
I have noticed that when running lately my pace is faster and that must be due to the dang Yasso 800's I have been running every week, that I actually have been sticking to weekly on the runs. Yesterday while out running I noticed that I was running faster with an easier feel other than my HR being high, I felt good. I only ran 4.5 miles but hey, its something.
Now with still no work available at the time being you would THINK I would be all over my training right? Some days I feel it and some days I just want to sit around and read, or get on the computer and do nothing, I guess that's part of being depressed or sad or something, shit, it sucks though, I have to train. I have a 70.3 race I'd like to do in 7 weeks! My last long ride of 30 miles last week wasn't too bad but pretty much all flat and the RAGE course is far from Flat! I know sitting around here playing Mafia Wars on facebook is not going to get me any where close to being ready for Rage, but hey, I am moving up in the crime underworld, ha!
One thing I did find over the last week is at Livestrong.com and its this online calorie tracker where you just enter your food and it calculates all the nutrients you eat per day and even subtracts out exercising, calories burned and shows you all this stuff. I totally dig stuff like that and have been trying to stay with it to track my nutrition progress or lack there of.
A few other things on the stress level side but we'll talk about those later. Oh, and a cool thing, John John Molina will be fighting on ESPN Friday Night Fights on March 27!
