Focused on relaxed shoulders, relaxed hips, quick, light cadence. Keeping my feet and legs underneath me (not out to the side, not out in front of me)

Nice cool beautiful morning.

Was just reviewing my training log going back to January and I've done a lot more running than i thought i did. Up until May i was still playing tennis 1 to 2 times per week.

I'm logging about 70 miles per month for June and July (with a week still to go) and i've been running 2 to 3 times per week (sometimes more with brick runs) Swimming is not as often as i'd like, but it was still more consistent than i would have thought - usually at least twice per week. Biking Volume is only a little bit more than running, which kind of surprised me. But when i think about it, most of my weekday rides have been around 1 to 1.5 hours. My weekday runs are usually close to an hour. And my weekend runs have been 1.5 to 2.5 hours lately. My rides have been 2 to 3.5.

I think i've been really trying to be balanced. I don't usually worry too much about getting my bike rides in because i really like to ride. Given the choice, i try to swim or run, because i know i'll want to get a ride in. Rather than ride and then blow off the swim or run. Tho i must say, i'm really starting to enjoy running.

Swimming is a good thing to do in the morning, because it's a shorter workout. Usually 30 to 45 minutes. That said, once i get to the pool i tend to stretch out the workouts beyond what is scheduled, because i get into a good rhythm and don't want to stop.

I do want to get in more long OWS in before the race to practice being out in the OW and sighting.

I'd like to get one or two more sprints in just to get into more of a racing mode.

Early Morning bike ride !! Beautiful weather. nice to get out early and ride by the beach.

Continued to focus on relaxed hips. Quick, light cadence. Good recovery stroke. Full Stroke. Got that nice "bouncy" pedal stroke feel :)

400 wu
200 drills

6 x 75 on 20" RI (1'15" per 75)
1000 (2'/100) 20' Total time (consistent pace)
50 cd (bk str, br str)

So, this was only a 1300 yd workout in the plan, but my 100 - 200 cd turned into 400, turned into 600, then 800 (which i really new was already going to turn into 1000)

Felt really, really good in the 500-600 range and all the way to the end. Very relaxed, especially hips and shoulders/upper back)
