positive mantra makes the day

[5/4/06 Thursday]

Run - 5 miles, 47 min - including 3 x 1 mile @ 7:55(partial uphill), 7:33(partial down), 7:50
Swim - 3500m, 1:19 (600 swim, 400 pull, 100 kick, 100 swim, 8 x 50 w/ 25 sprint/25 easy, 800 pull, 8 x 50 mod hard on 15 sec RI, 200 back, 400 B3/B5/B7/B9 on 100s, 100 kick) - long course pool 50m

My quads and pecs were still really sore from Tuesday's strength workout, but I was determined to have a decent workout day despite that. I hoping to hit 7:30 on the mile repeats of the run, but couldn't quite make it. Considering how sore I was, I am satisfied with my times for that. The swim was slow with my sore pecs, but I was determined to get through it no matter what. My mental mantra for the day was to push through it for love, not anger or hurt. Things like that can make the difference between finishing and not.

Current favorite workout songs:

Hurt - Rapture
Kelly Clarkson - Walk Away
10 Years - Wasteland (acoustic)
Nickelback - Savin Me
Annie Lennox - Thin Line Between Love and Hate
Nine Inch Nails - Every Day is Exactly the Same
Theory of a Deadman - Santa Monica
