    Thanks, yah, the swimming has progressed nicely. Funny because I only started it as a way to do cardio when my knee was hurt but I stuck with it and have gotten faster and can swim longer. Progress is good!

    My husband is sick so I had to get out of the house last night. I went to the gym of course!

    Row machine at steady 140+ strokes per minute for 20 minutes.
    100 bicycle crunches
    50 trunk rotations while standing on those squishy disk thingies holding 10lb ball
    2X25 Exercise Ball Abdominal pull ins
    3X25 leg press @110
    3x25 Hamstring curl @90

    Lunchtime workout: 2400m swim (almost 1.5 miles)

    2x100 kicking with fins
    10x100 freestyle on 2:05
    2x100m kicking with fins

    Tonight is most likely bike riding night.

    Totally separate note: I'd like to learn to ride a unicycle.

    Last night I rode again

    58 minutes (then it got dark) - definitely went hard as I couldn't talk through most of it.

    I continue to try to stay healthy amidst a town of sick people!

    Yesterday I kind of felt like I had a sore throat. So, I cut my cardio session at lunch to 40 minutes of riding at tempo followed by my typical core workout of assorted exercises and crunches and skipped my night workout. Today is my day day off from "working out". I still will walk at lunch but no formal workout.

    Nice going SBS.

    When on an mtb, I prefer a mtb helmet which has much thicker padding inthe rear (if you fall over backwards), is more square, less streamlined and has less holes. In fact, I use a mtb helmet on the road for the greater protection. The fact that it has fewer holes is a benefit as it keeps the noise down.

    And those are real nice (translation: expensive) roadie Sidi shoes. They were not designed for offroad use and won't give you much traction and are so stiff that it is damn hard to walk in if you have to walk up a hill.

    If you can get mtb stuff, it would serve you better, but you are doing fine otherwise.

    Sorry, didn't mean to nitpick, but I'm not cleared to work out so I spent too much time on this forum...

    hehehe, I appreciate your comments, but you are mistaken. Those are actually Sidi mountain bike shoes, and that is a great mtb helmet...one of the top of the line! You don't have to worry about me. I've raced mountain bikes at the professional level and have more than adequate gear...too much of it in fact!

    Saturday I rode my mountain bike for almost 2 hours on some trails east of town. The climbing is semi technical with lava rock gardens everywhere so it's slow going. I had an awesome day!

    Sunday I skate skied for about 20km in spring like conditions. HOT!

    I've started looking at my race schedule for the coming season (I still do a limited # of races to keep my sponsorship). The first is May 24 - I'm doing a 12 hour mountain bike race with my husband. After that, I'm doing a road time trial series which should be interesting because I've only ever done 1 road time trial ever!

    Right now I'm trying to stay healthy and not catch what everyone else around me has. For that reason, I cut my workout down to just one today because I feel funny somehow.

    Tempo ride for a bit over an hour and about 60% of my max. My legs were feeling a bit heavy after two days of leg centered cardio but by the end of the ride they were loosened up.

    50 bicycle crunches
    50 trunk rotations while standing on those squishy disk thingies holding 10lb ball
    2X25 Exercise Ball Abdominal pull ins
    3X25 leg press @110
    3x25 Hamstring curl @90

    26.51 miles of road riding after work. I like how it's light until past 7:00 now! I passed a giant herd of deer grazing in field just outside of town and then further up the road on the little climb one jumped right out in front of me and we just stood there and stared at each other before it gently walked away.

    I missed a couple workout posts but will just pick up with yesterday.

    As I sat at work watching big soft snowflakes plummet to the ground I got antsy and decided I needed to be up at the mountain. So, I left and went skate skiing - spent about an hour out there and felt awesome.

    Worn out..that's what I was after yesterday and the skate ski workout I did. 25km of skate skiing of which about 14km were on new over groomed trails (about 3" of new!) So, my legs got and extra workout and the climbs out from the depths of the earth were hard.
