3 weeks post the scope

Stoked to report that the first continuous mile went down today on the Tmill. Progressing from a 20 min mile (week 1) to an 8 min mile (week 3) was simply awesome.

Before embarking on this run/walk to full bore run I entertained the legs to some good old Spin Scan action. Folks, if you have not used a CompuTrainer you are missing out. I mounted my horse this AM in the "Training Center" and exposed the legs to a 1:2 (1 min on : 2 min off) Spin Scan workout. I may throw up a screen capture of the 'peanut' to 'amoeba' that is portrayed on the screen.

All kidding aside... I have to work my tail off to even come close to a 70 Spin Scan number. I am embarrassed to admit that I felt borderline nauseous by the time I was done with 20 min of it today. 'A size 13 to the butt' is how it felt; I got my tail kicked this AM and I liked it. I have to get my 'butt' in gear for 2010 pronto.

As noted above...I dismounted my horse and played on the Tmill. I avoided a face plant similar to FL 70.3 2009 ;)

This day proved highly successful to get me back on track. I will begin to wrap my head around the season in the next 2 to 4 weeks and plan out my first tri. The plan is to hit the Run the Creek 5K (March 20) at Highland Creek to see where the legs are.

Stay the course friends...Coach L

(P.S., for those interested....I will be creating a Studio7Multisport page on YouTube and will be posting vids per strength training, etc. there)
