Training has been sporadic and light the last couple of weeks. Business travel Tu - Th last week interrupted my training with early flights and early meetings, and dinner meetings, so only hit the hotel gym lightly on Thursday morning. Got back Thursday evening, then had another training interruption ... a medical scare, so took it easy over the weekend. Now back to some light intensity training this week. Doctor appointment tomorrow, so hopefully get the go ahead to ramp up intensity.
Monday 8/31 - AM weights. We have a new stretch cage at the Y, so I was breaking that thing in.
Monday 8/31 - PM swim. Swam as an extended warm up, just stretching out, low intensity. Kept pulse rate around 100 or less.
Tuesday 9/1 PM - no swimming as there was HS swim meet. Sharon and I rode bikes, but it looked like it was about to storm, so we cut it short. About 18 miles, just cruised.
Wednesday 9/2 PM - regular masters workout, swimming in the rain. Me and 8 girls on the team. Increased my intensity a bit from Monday.
