Waking up at 6am, which is normally tough to do anyways, was even tougher when I saw heavy fog out the window. "Okay, so visibility may be a bit of an issue" I thought. I was just going to wear more reflective stuff and slap a red blinker on the back of the bike...until I saw the deal-breaker: frost.
I really wanted that ride today. Really. But riding on slick 21mm tires on wet, frosty roads while clipped in is not my idea of fun. Add rush-hour traffic that's only a foot or two away from you and you could have a recipe for disaster. I didn't want that ride that badly. But it would have been nice to get a couple of "free" hours on the bike today.
Sigh. Looks like I'll just have to settle for tonight's swim. After not swimming at all last week, I should feel this good!
Here's my anticipated plan for the week - I'm just hoping it'll stick:
- Monday: masters swim
- Tuesday: 45min run with 10x30sec sprints on 2min rest ; 65min ride with 8x1min hills on 2min rest
- Wednesday: 2100m swim with 1500m steady set
- Thursday: 40min steady run ; 1h15 steady bike
- Friday: 1h steady run
- Saturday: rest
- Sunday: 2h steady ride
