I was a swim angel for the Danskin today - fun! Three of us got to be the starting gate for the first several waves. It was awesome to see the excitement on all of the ladies' faces and help get them psyched up for the start. After my turn on that, I trailed behind a wave and helped out some swimmers that were struggling. There were a few that got frazzled by the start, but were fine once they had some space to work with and a chance to catch their breath. The lake was pretty choppy in the wind, so there were many who were struggling against the current and and waves. We were very busy through the entire swim leg. Afterwards, another swim angel and I swam the course just for the workout. It was good sighting practice for me, and I felt quite strong, despite having been in the water for more than an hour already. All in all, a very fun morning!

In case I haven't mentioned it before, I hate wind.  Wind, wind, wind.  We've had nothing but windy days all spring, and I'm ready for some calmer weather to work out in.  It was so gusty today that the wind blowing the sand from the trail was stinging my legs.  Not fun.

Still, I had a better run than usual - I did a much better job of pacing myself. I did have to cut a couple of my intervals a bit short, but considering the conditions, I'm pretty pleased.

I'm also pleased to have my weight finally coming back down.  I've lost about 4 pounds in the last 2 weeks.  I hope that I can keep up that pace for a while longer and be close to 175 for my race on the 22nd, and maybe 165 for the Austin Tri on September 1.  Bit by bit, but I'm feeling a lot more optimistic about my progress so far. There is hope for me yet!
