went out for a spin on my bike this morning:
Home to Ahwatukee 45.49 mi 02:33 17.8mph pace

hmm maybe I need to replace the battery in my HR monitor. anyway, I didn't feel nearly as deathly today, even though it was a bit brisk when I started. forgot to charge my Garmin, so I used both it and the Strava app...the later kinda freaked me out when I heard it telling me I was finishing a segment (it was in my jersey pocket).

I have another HR monitor somewhere, just need to find it. I think the one I've been using is my original that I got with my first Garmin, like 6-8 years ago. not really worth wearing if it is going to give false readings.

after work, I went over to the Chandler 24 Hour Fitness for a solo swim:

600 w/u

4 x 150 kick @ 2:45, w/fins + board. done 25 flutter/25 dolphin

100 easy

7 x 100 @ 1:30, swim w/Agility paddles

200 w/d

then went in the hot tub, did about 10 min of stretching, mostly legs
back in the pool for another easy 100

TTL: 2300 yards

I really didn't want to go, but figured I should at least do a stretch out swim. there was someone swimming in the wall of the types who when I got close to lapping him, he turned on the speed. on many days I'll play along, but today I wasn't feeling it, so I just let him do whatever he wanted.

I felt pretty decent on those 100s. I was determined to do at least 5, but no more than 7.

this puts me at 490.67 miles, almost there! I'll probably hit 500 by next Friday at latest.
yea some of the miles are garbage. but many times, especially in winter when it is cold and dark, knowing that I need to keep on pace for 500 miles gets me out of bed. this is my 4th year doing the FLOG. the first year I just hit 410 miles, then 500+ 2 years ago and last year.
