Diaper rash

That's what I call it. I chafed bad on my run this morning. I felt it coming on but kept going anyway. I ran 13 - felt it starting at mile five. Needless to say it is the worst case of chafing for me since Lake Placid.

What's the cure?

I hope I can sit on a bike seat tomorrow.

Rode a Computrainer for the first time a couple of days ago. It definately made the time go by faster - had things to visualize (did the AZ course), targets to try for, etc. Unfortunately, it is not my computrainer and it will be an infrequent event. Looking for a used one if you know anyone.....................

Ran 14.15 miles today. 25 miles for the week. I'm at the point where a seven or eight mile run feels like nothing - but 14 definately felt like a long run. Ran with Buzz (85 lb yellow lab). He barely made it - he was good for 12.5 then started trailing behind me. Missed all my swims this week (unless I get one in tomorrow). All riding being done inside - What a drag!

Trying something different

Just a quick post. I noticed no one is posting save Dan and Mary Stella. I won't be posting much as I am super busy at work which is a good thing. I am trying something different this year - call it the ultimate experiment. Last year I was 100% Crossfit endurance going into my ironman. This year I will be 100% LSD going into the iroman. The concept here is to train the body to be more efficient - basically by turning off the anerobic system.

So, I will be one of those athletes saying "I ran 35 miles, biked 200 and swam four miles this week."
