Chlorine & Peanuts

before I get to the story behind todays workout "Chlorine & Peanuts" , a reflection back on last nights run as shown here in the Heart Rate Readout. Met with Chaim and did the hills course close to his home, which are the same hills (Or hill) that we used to train on for the New York Marathon last year.

5 Solid repeats will have to go back and check how our times have improved or most likely gotten worse, (bad english I know). We motored up and jogged down, as hard as hills training is, I still enjoy doing this workout as it has a diefinite focus and a definite end.

This morning down to the Gym as it just opened, I had to do a swim session and a weights/core. Now on the way to the gym found a packet of peanuts in the car and decided in my wisdom to munch down a few handfuls. Fifteen minutes later doing laps I realised that chlorine in the mouth somehow managed to bring back the peanuts, not that i threw up but somehow the taste of peanuts became mixed with chlorine and that fellow athletes is something that should be avoided. So my training tip for today is that nothing tastes good with chlorine.

Welcome to raceAthlete. Glad to see I wasn't the only one to swing by and say "Hello."

I'm fairly certain your correct that nothing goes with chlorine, including my hair.

Go figure Jay was the one to beat me here. That makes two moderators who have made it.

We tried to do some charts for you, Mal, but we couldn't figure out how to get them on your comment page...actually we weren't exactly sure what they meant anyway. They really were impressive though. Believe it or not we utilize every tiny bit of information you give us, Coach. We think russ is a sore a...let us rephrase that, Mal, ...we think russ is just jealous of you. Do you want us to whup up on him, Coach? Happy trip down under. Can't wait for your blogs from
