I bought these brand new 606's back in October but obviously haven't tried them out yet. My own set of race wheels! Not only will they be fast but they also look great with my bike!
Geoff got me the new Newton racers for Christmas. Haven't tried them out yet, but I will use these for my races next year. I will plan to try them out a few times at the indoor track at the leisure centre soon. They are really cool shoes, the forefoot technology encourages you to land on your forefoot as opposed to a heel strike, resulting in more efficient technique. I might look into getting the trainers to train in as well.
Yesterday I had a good 60 min massage with some work on my upper back and neck area, as well as legs of course. I also tried out the treadmill and just did a very ez 30 min run while watching What Not to Wear (I know, how dorky!). Today was a 45 min run on the treadmill with progressing speed, I felt good and my legs actually feel great today. I planned on swimming sometime in the late afternoon but have not actually left the house yet so I will probably end up going tomorrow. I will be back to my regular 3 swims a week once the St. Albert pool re-opens on Jan. 5. I will also start up with coaching the group again in St. Albert.
I am going to be meeting with a registered dietician next week to discuss a customized program for myself for sport performance and a better diet to address my iron deficiency problem. I have coverage for this in my benefits so might as well take advantage of it! I am looking forward to this and hopefully it won't result in me having to spend a lot of extra time cooking!
Tomorrow I plan on doing a long run of 80-90 mins (I should go outside but don't want to as the high is only -12C!), as well as a swim of about 2500m. I have to work half a day on Dec. 31 and then I have two days off, but I am behind on getting reports done at work so I had to bring my laptop home with me this weekend. I will probably be doing more work on reports on my two days off so it's not really much of a vacation! Oh well, the busier I am and the more work I do, the more I get paid so I won't complain!
