Week 1, Day 7 - 16 week full IM training

Woke at 7 AM.
Was going to get up and do "Bradshaw" but I felt a little tweak in my lower left back last night and had flashes of week 1 of my Half IM training from 2010 when I worked out despite my back hurting and ended up in physical therapy for three weeks.

So instead of 10 workouts this week, it'll be 9...plus an extra hour on the bike yesterday.
