This morning was swim practice-just me and the guys. There was 5 of us in the pool as the temperature stayed at 40 degrees while we were swimming. At least the cold weather keeps you IN the pool...not wanting to get out! The main set was 8 x 125 on 1:50 for me and I found myself pushing hard but getting over 10 seconds rest. That'll do for now and I am really amazed with how far my swimming has come. Matt Hess has done a great job pushing me and keeping me motivated to push hard in the water. I know I can't win the Ironman in the swim (ok-I know I can't win the Ironman all together!) but at least I can now see myself breaking 1-hour in the 2.4 mile swim at Kona. Let's hope for the best..I've still got plenty of months to go! Quickly ran to the locker room (in the cold, that run to the locker room can seem like a marathon!) and got myself ready for my run. Ran 6.5 miles with plenty of intervals and even found myself running 9 mph at a HR that wasn't too high. Looks like things are coming together...YAY!
Started to coach a lot more and just loving it! I LOVE helping people and especially with triathlons and sports nutrition!
It's a shame I won't be here this weekend, but I hope everyone has fun either racing in Clermont for the Florida Great Escape or watching/racing in the Gearlink Cup. Whatever you are doing....Good luck and Have fun! And don't forget to feel good while you are doing it!
