I will become a better swimmer. I will become a better swimmer. I will become a better swimmer. Sunday's swim was better than Ironhead, but still, it's slower than I want it to be.

Maybe I need to get Shannon's swim coach to help me out. Having somebody look at me (preferably without laughing) might be what I need. I know my arms are going herky-jerky once they're in the water, I just can't seem to fix it.

Easy recovery jog. No soreness, but not much energy either. Heavy legs.

Easy run and hopefully easy bike at lunchtime or a drainer ride. Houston had his 15 month shots yesterday, so we'll see if he feels up to going to daycare today.

Ponderment of the day - if you do an Iron Distance event (not necessarily an "Ironman" race like IMAZ, something like the Redman Tri up on OKC), are you still considered an Ironman?

Prairieman race report and pics are up. Should have more pics when the 2 folks who were kind enough to take some of me after our camera was fried send them to me.

One more day off today, then it's back to marathon training. Yippee. 9 more weeks till my first marathon. And as Aaron pointed out Sunday, 356 more days till I'm 31.

704pm - Going nuts not having worked out in two days. I know it's probably better for me to relax after going farther than ever before on Sunday, but crap! I'm antsy for some exercise.

A bit sore today, but nothing too bad. I think I counted 4 blisters from yesterday. Well worth it though.

Thanks so much to swatson, tri_it_cajun_style, DerekL, jcagg90, Comet, Tri Take Me Away, Chippy, Doughboy, sebjamesm, and Tracy (Mrs. sebjamesm) for strapping. You guys were AWESOME!

I really tried to get a good night's sleep, honest. Got to bed around 10:30, but Houston woke up sometime before 6. I let him talk for 45 minutes, then finally got up. Why is it on the days he needs to get up by 6:30 he's still asleep, and the days he can/I want him to sleep in, he doesn't. Murphy's Law I guess.

Think I'm going to skip the multisport mode on the Garmin tomorrow. I just don't like the display on it. I'm not going to be in too big of a hurry in T1 and T2 tomorrow, so the 10 seconds it takes changing it from bike to run mode won't be a big deal.

Pretty much have everything packed already, just need to find my hat and I'm all set for tomorrow. Going to be fun.

Sore throat this morning. Not cool. Maybe I just slept on my back last night and that aggravated it. Hopefully I'm not getting sick. No time for that.

To do list for today:

  • clean the bike
  • mow the yard
  • get license plates renewed since they expired in August - OK, maybe Monday
  • get gear together for Sunday
  • pre-race haircut

Is it bad that I'm starting to look past Prairieman and think about an IM next year?
