Okay Luke the trainer was correct! I am quite sore today-even the couple of doses of o ibuprofen really didn't seem to do much to help with the soreness. The soreness just proves that I need to do some work to strengthen my upper body.

Today's workout out consisted of a 75 minute "No Mind" run-meaning easy, no speed, and just enjoy it! I met up with the P2 crew for the run today. Michelle and I headed out a bit early and then I headed out to finish up the run with Charlie and Chuck. The run started off a bit rough because my shoulders were super sore and tight but the run continued some of the lactic acid worked its way out any my shoulders loosened up. The run went well and I got approximently 8 miles in total.

Following the run a I had a quick conversation with coach to discuss my training over the past week.

Now off to work for my last night of this long stretch.
Reguv...week started today-meaning training will be pretty light. My workout called for an easy swim or easy bike or day off. I having to lead swim club, swam easy. I ended up doing about a mile or so easy. I spent a lot of time chatting with the guys that showed up for swim club today.

Following swim club I met with a personal trainer at Discover strength for a consultation. Luke the trainer explained the companies philosphy and then led me through a short workout. He had warned me that most everyone is quite sore for a couple of days following the first few workouts. The workout was quick but I could tell that I need to get into the routine of strength training. I could definately tell that I have some significant weakness in my right shoulder which is probably why its been bothering during my swims.

On my way home, I stopped off to hang out with Liz and Shelley and her two girls for a bit. It was great to catch up with them.

Only one more night of my long stretch-Yay!
