    mon- run 2k. bike 40. couldn't keep up with the faster group the last few kilometers home

    tues -swim 2k, did some strange yoga class called kundalini. not sure about this yoga stuff

    wed- bike 55. it was hot-dang hot. Over 105 degrees. It has been over 100 all week.

    thurday- swim 1.6k, even the water is getting too warm, some gym stuff but no running.

    friday-running class with sprints & such (3k) Did another slow 3k afterwards. Legs sore from sprints

    saturday-Legs still sore from sprints but did a slow 6k run. Then did a 5k bike, 1k run (with son) Had a productive day sorting through piles of junk. It is amazing what you can do when you aren't sitting at a swim meet all day long...although I admitt that I love to watch my little fish swim fast :) 

    Did better with my PT this week. After all the sprints on Friday, my hip ached but wasn't really that sore. I hope this is a good sign.  I read the blog link about the top mistakes runners make. I think I did every one of them.  Botom line- I need to increase my total running time per week. Rather than distance or speed, just total running time right now. I've only been running about twice per week, but this week I did 3x and was ok. I think I am  going to try to fit in 2-3 short runs per week and then one 6k per week. If my hip cooperates, I will start adding some more distance again.

    Monday- 5k run, .5k swim, 10k bike

    Tuesday- 1.6k swim, PT exercises, 20 minutes gym stuff

    Wednesday- 2.5k run, 60 bike, 2.5k run. It was my friends birthday she arranged a  fun birthday ride. At the mid-way  rest stop she arranged for frozen birthday cake, cool towels, & a water balloon fight.   

    Thursday- swim 1.6, run 3k, PT exercises, 

    Friday- running class (sprints) and 10k bike ride

    Saturday- 5 k fun run with the family. My 8 year was faster than me. I need to pace off of him next time. 

    At the end of the week I was happy with my running progress. I did some running almost everyday, instead of just trying to run twice a week and do sprints to help build speed.  My weekly running distance went up and my hip was ok after the 5k run Saturday. I'm going to keep up this idea of focusing on more running during the week rather than trying to get faster, as I don't think I have a solid enough base yet.  I also did good with my PT, almost everyday.  I will need to keep the PT up as I try to add more distance again.

    Holiday week. Kids off school. Did my PT almost everyday. Trying to throw in more shorts runs during the week. I figiure a short run is better than no run.  My friend has got me hooked on spinach blender drinks. Strange, but they are good.

    Monday- bike 6k, run 2k, swim 1k

    Tuesday- bike 10k, run 3k

    Wednesday- swim 1.6, run 1k (every little bit counts, right? ) 

    Thurday - watched the kids wake board

    Friday- Run 4k, bike 3k

    Saturday- Run 6k (in yellow and blue) , Bike 10k The market was out of spinach today, so I had to try Chinese kale. I don't like it as much as spinach.
