foundation ride. 1.5 loops of old fhp

good ride this morning.  legs were stiff from this weekend and last night's strength work.  Won't make the run this evening at Mother Earth.  Scheduled closings and needing to get a few things together for the trip to the beach so i can swim tomorrow (weather permitting).  Planning on riding to the beach Thursday and riding back Saturday.  Looks like i will be on either side of the mess that is allegedly coming, but it should be fine.

Monday morning swim.  water felt good this morning.  Good swim.  focused on staying strong through the swims and not taking something too easy.  Particularly after Saturday.  second kick was slow (not that the first one was fast).  Still feels like it is getting stronger.

brick run
to mile marker and back

Thursday morning brick.  Shorter than plan calls for since we're racing on Saturday.  Body is real tired, but everything seems to be ok.  The run was particularly good, though it's only 2 miles.  

I am number 5 for Saturday's Washington Olympic.  Wilson is number 4.  Gotta love FsSeries using the alphabatized last names to assign numbers.  The other big race organizer usually gives the elites the first several numbers.  I think most people that race FS have gotten used to this, but when they first started it was sort of funny.

Getting stuff packed tonight
