Various things I pulled from the news today that you may or may not have seen.
From the Giro d'Italia - How neat is this!?!?
Per a Mr. Armstrong via Twitter
lancearmstrong: - Italian Air Force flyover during the stage today. Was really badass in person.
Phelps back in Action - Well, sort of. Hopefully the Boy® won't see this story. It was bad enough explaining 'pot' to him.
And I leave you with the question of the day: If doing a bike/run workout is a BRICK, then doing a swim/bike/run workout is a TRICK?
On Sunday, as I was having a bachelor weekend, I did a 2850 total yds swim. 2x200 easy w/u with 30 RI, 6x200 medium with 20 sec RI; 2x400 hard with 20 sec RI; 8x25 hard on 20 RI; 5x50 hard on 10. I followed that with a 13.6 mi TT on the bike at 22.2 MPH. Hey! I'll take it as long as I can start to repeat that speed come race day. I followed that with a short run on the sore Achilles/heel because, well, I had to complete the TRICK!
Monday, I did my second TRICK on as many days. A short, easy (but surprisingly fast) 30-minute bike. Another slow, agonizing run. And then a short pool swim with the Boy® since we both have our first tri of the season this coming Saturday.
Two days. Two tricks. Maybe Phelps and I have something in common after all. No, strike that!
