Anyhow, I emailed all my pics to my office to make up my blog post but they never made it for a second day in a row. Something tells me Roger, crappy Canadian ISP, is blocking the large outgoing attachments. I hate Canadian networks.
Anyhow, I had a whole expose on how to dress for cold weather training. I see alot of people struggling with getting the layering thing right so I thought I'd share what works for me. Tomorrow perhaps!
Lets seeee Wednesday night I got an easy tempo recovery swim in. Thursday I got a recovery bike and run in but it was a tough one mentally. Tougher than a regular workout by far. An easy recovery run means I'm not improving fitness or getting faster so I regard them as almost a waste of time. I know that this active recovery is much needed as it keeps my joints and muscle loose, holds me to routine but because it's not a hard workout I don't get as pumped up or excited over it. So on the run my mind waders, I got bored easy and start thinking about not wanting to be doing it. It also didn't help that 1/2 inch of snow on the ground shaved speed off an already slow pace. The snow made it feel alot tougher than it should have been to hold that pace, so I was getting frustrated with 'working hard' to 'go slow'. I wasn't working that hard, but still. Pathetic pace.
Sticking to the plan though. Letting the body recover this week.
Looking forward to full-on training next week. I could use a stress reliever.
