Back on Track

Training has been going quite well for me the past couple weeks. I have been very consistent and getting in all my scheduled workouts, and even nailing a few killer sessions. My swim is definitely back on track after some super hard workouts this week and last, including my best ever "double up" set on Tues. night (50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400 all holding well under 40sec per 50 throughout), and a crazy hard swim this morning (main set was 15 x 100 on 1:35 holding 1:15-1:16 for all). I was pretty worn out after the swim workout today and required a large double double and breakfast bagel from Tim Hortons!

This weekend is a big weekend of training for me, as I am preparing for some big volume training in Arizona so it is not a complete shock to the system! After the swim today I did some shopping at the Bay and then biked on the trainer for 1.5 hours. Tomorrow is a very long brick, with 2.5 hours on the trainer followed by a 1 hour run. My running volume and frequency has definitely decreased (down to 3 runs a week, sometimes 4), but the strange thing is I actually feel a lot better lately when I run! Last Sunday I had an awesome 1hr 50 min run and felt really strong.

Poor Hugo has not been feeling well the past few days. He has been lethargic and was not eating much up until today. He seems to have his appetite back today, though, as he ate all his food plus some extra food. We took him to the vet this morning and she wasn't able to find anything wrong, she thought maybe he just picked something up and was feeling nauseated. He's doing better this evening and acting like his usual self, chasing stuff and eating his bone! Geoff will probably take him to the vet again on Monday if he doesn't improve more. Hopefully he will be better tomorrow...

Poor Hugo. I hope he is better. Chloe sends her love and get well Pug kisses for him.
She says to tell him "Just be glad it's not worms, trust me! It's not worms is it? I hope it's not worms!"
Hehe, I saw that on a get well greeting card once. A cute little doggy on the front lying in bed. I bought like 4 of them I thought they were so cute!

This statement made me laugh:

"My running volume and frequency has definitely decreased (down to 3 runs a week, sometimes 4), but the strange thing is I actually feel a lot better lately when I run"
