Day 465 - A Big Day with Skratch Labs, Swimming and Running!

May 18, 2014                        243.4 lbs.

This is how I woke up this morning.  .  .

Anyways, I went to the Amgen Tour of California finale but got there too late. Bummed I didn't get to meet the Skratch Labs guys.

Just as I got home, Allen Lim, the founder of Skratch Labs, messaged me they were heading to Pedalers Fork in Calabasas. So I got to meet up with them anyways. Allen is a great guy and everyone greeted me warmly. "Hey, your the Road2Iron guy!" Yup. I had a very nice chat with Allen, Jon and his wife and Ian from Skratch and I even met Ted King and Timmy Duggan.

Later I made it to the pool for the first of my two workouts.

3600 yards = 400 wup - 200 kick - 4x50 head up drill the first 25 - 4x50 catch up the first 25 - 200 swim
3x600 negative split.  This means the first 300 needs to be quite slow and controlled to swim faster the second 300!
4x50 pull - 4x50 head up drill the first 25.
200 warm down

I went home and ate, then after a bit of digesting, it was back out for my weekly long run. This time nine miles! That is a lot of running.   .   .

 I ended up running from the hills to the studios starting with NBC.

 It was too late to see anyone famous like Jay Leno.
 I also passed Warner Brothers before tuning north towards home.  I was about home when my feet started to really ache. Whenever this happens, I think about upgrading to a shoe with slightly more support on really long runs. Maybe, but I love my Merrell Bare Access shoes!

I took six blueberry rice cakes and my fifty ounce, Camelbak Hydration pack filled with Skratch Labs Hydration Mix. Once again, my nutrition never failed me.

Well that is it for now. Until tomorrow my friends.
