Weekend Plans

This weekend I am planning to attend the Twin Cities Multisports Clubs sponsor open houses: Grand Performance on Friday, Accua on Saturday and StartLine Running Store on Sunday. I will also be continuing the organizing & cleaning of my house. I will complete building up my tri bike. On Saturday I will spin to one of the new CTS Progressive Power DVDs on my road bike to check it out and make sure it is shifting correctly and the set up is dialed in before attending Fiona's 2 hour spin at Balance on Sunday. If I am able to get all that done, I will start working on getting one of my old PCs up and running so I can use it to play/stream music through my stereo. That's all folks....yeah right....

Been Sick

I have been battling the flu, Saturday - Monday, and now I have a good old fashioned cold. I was not at work on Monday so I skipped swimming on Monday as well. I did not go to cycling class last night either as I did not feel good in the evening. I will also most likely be skipping my power/stability workout tomorrow morning. I don't like being sick so I hope this is it for the year, which would also be nice so I don't have to take much more time off from training once I get going and start to build up my training load.

Thursday's Power Workout

This mornings workout was a power workout. We determined our 1 rep max and then completed 4 sets of 6 reps of dumbbell bench, squat, bent over row, power cleans and hammer curls each at 85% of our 1 RM.
