PELHAM 123

Today I had 2 WOD.

1) 5-5-5-5-5 BACKSQUATS
Since my knee is still feeling "weird" I did it as heavy as I felt safe, I can not afford to blow my knee 3 weeks (YES 21 DAYS, BEFORE MY 1/2 IRONMAN)

1) 45+90
2) 45+90+50
3) 45+90+20
4) 45+90+40
5) 45+90+40

I felt I can handle more, but I played safe.

Then, the big test, 80KM (49.70 miles) for time but where?

Outside was snowing/raining, cold and muddy. I wish I can have more adventurous spirit but since now I'm officially 38, I may become a "little" responsible and don't want to get hurt before the race.

I decided to try to entertain myself during this 2 hours (my goal) and try to enjoy the basement. (really I don't know how other triathletes train for HOURS in the basement, several days a week).

I turn on my PS3 with the Netflix disc and watched PELHAM 123 (Travolta-Washington) very good and intense movie witch kept me entertain for most of the 80km.

Had to stop to go the restroom and back to the saddle to accomplish my goal, less than 2 hours.

Total time: 1:58:26, felt good and now life goes on.
