A little need for speed work

Here's a couple pics of me running from the Y Tri last Friday.
Last night I bike a bike workout on the computrainer with 6x1min at 350watts with 1min recovery between each. After a bike warm up and cool down it was a good hour on the bike. Today I did a run on the treadmill at work with some speed work. 4x1min. at 10.0 with 1min. recovery and then 4x2min. at 11.0 with 2min. recovery. After that it was some core work and then off to the pool for a hard swim workout with the team. The main set was 16x100 @1:20 holding under 1:10 for all of them. A couple of them were 1:05's. Right after that was a 100 easy and then 16x50 @:40 and I was holding 32 and 33 for all of them. Tonight I'll probably just spin on the bike while watching some tv for a solid 4hour day.
So this morning on my way into work I stopped at the gas station for some gas and as I'm on my way back to my car after paying this lady in her huge SUV says excuse could I help her find her latch to open her hood as she wanted to put windshield washer fluid in. So I go over and I found it right away so she said thank you and I went back to my car. As I'm about to pull away I look over and she's having the hardest time opening her hood. So I pull out from the pump and go over to where she's parked...So I'm trying to find her latch...still trying....still trying...finally she tries again and still can't figure it out. So I give it one more go and finally figure the thing out! So then I hold the hood open for her as she pours in her washer fluid and she starts laughing...she goes, "ya everyone in the drive through at Tim's is probably laughing right now watching you help the cute lady get her hood open". I didn't even know what to say, because here I am just trying to be a nice guy and she whips out this comment....I mean ya she was still pretty young and I'll admit it she was good looking. Well I did my good deed for the day and got a laugh out of it also.
