Feeling a bit better today - hopefully, I've got this stupid stomach bug on the run.
Did an Expresso bike (http://www.expresso.com/) workout at lunch, which totally kicked my ass, but I feel great now. Did a (pretty measely) 1200 yard swim session last night, broken down into sets of 300 yards with a 100 yard cool down.
Sadly (or luckily?), we were shut out of the Horribly Hilly Hundreds (http://www.horriblyhilly.com/home.html) this year, which we had casually discussed doing as a means of getting a nice hill workout in relatively early in the training schedule. The race has gotten increasingly popular in the midwest, and the 2009 edition apparently sold out in 14 minutes. Yikes.
So, we may just try to organize some kind of informal training weekend in Madison around the same time and tackle some of the IM hills without having to pay a registration fee.
Tomorrow is a strength day.
