Morning BT!

No training this morning for me.  I have a 1500 yd swim this afternoon.

Have a Great Day!

Got a great 7 miler in this morning. Felt like a rainforest, about 60* with 99% humidity. Birds chirping, everything blooming. Great morning to be out.

Listening to a David Goggins book called Can't Hurt Me. While I don't buy into the entire premise of his training and attitude, it's an interesting and inspirational listen.

Cheers,

Steve

Completed the swim work out.  Today I did the 400/200 CSS swim time trial.  It has been about a year since I have done one of these and it looks like I have got about 8 sec/100yds faster.  Now I just need to not cramp in the water on race day and not swim in zigzags and I will have some real progress.  :-)

Congrats on the CSS trial and progress! I guess the only good thing about being injured is no one will make me do that turkey again any time soon. I don't mind the 400, but even as a youth swimmer I never really figured out how to properly pace a 200--either crash and burn or start too slow and then too much left over. And doing the 400 first adds to the guesswork. Ugh.

1400 yards of "swimming" here--500 total of free with fins; 450 dolphin kick with fins; the rest mainly breaststroke. Suffice to say I am really slow, even with the fins! (Free is about 15-20 seconds/100 yards over my normal easy pace.) Although, alarmingly, still faster than some of the "triathlete" types at the pool.

Trainer ride planned for later with some Z3 intervals. Cleared to run as of yesterday but going to wait at least a few more days. Still having some swelling and nerve pain issues and hoping some new meds will kick in to help with that before I try running again.

Kim just got tired of the spammers during one period when there were really a lot on BT. We're still in touch on on Facebook--she's mostly into trail running now and always posting pics that make me insanely jealous (though, seeing as how I managed to break my elbow trail running, it might be a very long time before I actually feel like hitting the trails again). Kim doesn't live that far from me (by far west standards, at least. Maybe a half day's drive through very remote country south of here). She sometimes takes her runners to compete in the Boise area--hoping to meet up with her sometime.

Good to hear Kim is going well.

Easy 3.5 mile run this evening. Took my bike off the trainer and got it set up for race mode afterwards.

Going out for an easy 15-20 mile ride tomorrow morning and then it’s Chattahoochee Challenge 70.3 Saturday morning.

Happy training!
