Pushing the pace or 1 step forward and 2 steps back

This weeks goals:
1. Start trending down on my weight. 56.86 lb average last week.
2. Hopefully push the pace some.

Sunday, 4/10/2011, 6:10 AM, Bike (Road bike), 20.19 miles, 1 hr 12 min 49 secs, Average speed: 16.6 miles/hr, Bike: K2 Astral 3.0, really good ride and my first 20 miler and the fastest pace of the season. Really good finish to the week.

Saturday, 4/09/2011 AM, Run, 15.02 miles, 1 hr 56 min 50 secs, pace: 7:47 min/miles, good run by the numbers 7:33, 7:39, 7:51, 7:53, 7:58, 7:43, 7:52, 7:47, 7:59, 7:53, 7:43, 7:46, 7:48, 3:50+3:51, 7:38, Garmin was generous with 15.10 miles.

Friday, 4/08/2011, 7:50 AM, Swim (Pool)1.47 miles, 56 min 36 secs, pace: 38:30 min/miles, Good swim with a little soreness in my left shoulder. It has been a good week so far. I will skip the 10K and run a 15 miler in the morning. Hopefully I will be through to watch the race and cheer my friends.

Thursday, 4/07/2011, 5:30 AM, Tempo run 7.36 miles, 51 min 41 secs, pace: 7:01 min/miles, I was able to push the pace a little this AM. If the Garmin had not shorted me .04 of a mile, I would of had a sub 7:00 average. Still not sure if I will run River City 10K on Saturday.

Wednesday, 4/06/2011 7:50 AM, Swim (Pool), 1.42 miles, 54 min 21 secs, pace: 38:16 min/miles, I have really started to enjoy swimming the last part of the workout at a relaxed pace. This week I have been feeling my energy levels returning.

Tuesday, 4/05/2011 5:20 AM, Bike (Road bike)17.54 miles, 1 hr 04 min 55 secs, Average speed: 16.2 miles/hr, NW Wind 7 MPH, The wind was a little factor. Not a bad ride but a little slower than I would of liked. Took the dogs to Pt Mallard trail and walked 3.5 miles. (hour and 10 minutes)

Monday, 4/04/2011 5:30 AM, Hill Internal Run, 5.6 miles, 41 min 57 secs, pace: 7:29 min/miles, not a great pace. 2 weeks off from interval training and weight gain have taken its toll. I really tried to push the pace but nothing worked well.
