Monday evening I went for a slow shakeout jog with Sloane, about 6.5 miles. Went in with a tender groin, finished with no pain. Slam dunk (copyright The RED FOX).
Yesterday I lifted in the AM and did 30 minutes of dominant leg biking in the PM. The first 10 minutes I felt tight, didn't really feel it, when all of a sudden an amazing string of events took place. First, Michelle texted me that her Pacers coach predicted a low-17 5K at the UMD Invite for her. That's AWESOME, it made me think about 15:45 for myself. Cadence began to pickup. Then Jordan called me, which always perks me up, even when he has nothing to say. Cadence is getting higher. Then I looked up at the television to see GODZILLA blasting MECHAGODZILLA with his radioactive fire. That was all I could handle. I couldn't control myself any longer. I was pedaling, 90% effort on one leg every 30 seconds, at a cadence of at least 105 rpm. YES. Chicken tenders at FD's with Jordan afterwards added to the awesome.
Swam this AM, descending 100s... Started at 1:40 pace, did the last 100 in 1:15!! (that's a personal record for me...)
Oh, for fun.
