Journal and 2009 MS150 Houston to Austin

Get the daily business out of the way. Today is a training day. Not sure what dinner will hold, but it will be a lean meat and veggie. This is from my Apex BodyBugg journal program.


So I did it! I registered for the 2009 MS150 again. I figure it can't be as bad as it was last year, doing it with record winds, right? :) It's also the 25th anniversary of the event, so I suspect it will be one to remember.

Registration for the event opened at 10:15 am and there are slots for 13,000 riders. By 1:52 pm it was 82% full -- had no idea that there were so many gluttons for punishment out there. I'll be riding with Team Mission Control. I also found out that a couple of my former co-workers are going to be riding. Out of all the people there last year, I actually ran into them!

Getting in now will afford me riding time with others. The team does a series of training rides and that will fall in line perfectly with training for the Austin Danskin in 2009. After the LiveSTRONG ride is done, focusing on riding for the MS150 and the Danskin will be my goals.

I did make it to the gym yesterday (Yay!), but honestly I'm having the hardest time getting back into the swing. I hate being in this place. For me, when I feel the progress that's what motivates me to go each day. Don't get me wrong, I'm not sliding backwards or anything, I just don't FEEL it like I normally do. Here's a rough plan...

Wednesday - Cardio / Lift (Upper Body)
Thursday - Training session / Lift (Lower Body)
Friday - Cardio / Swim (???)
Saturday - Bike Ride, 30 miles
Sunday - Bike Ride, 40 miles
Monday - Off
Tuesday - Training session
