I hope that the Triathlon World awakened to great weather and better training.
I was in the pool this morning. After my mega swim on Monday I though I would cut back a little today. I mostly worked on doing flip turns. I have been able to do flip turns on my sprints but could never keep them going for an extended period. I always seem to mess up on my breathing rhythm and end up sucking down half the pool. ( management is getting tired of filling the pool after I am done). So today I concentrated on just that. I started with doing 1 fip, then 2 flips, etc until I got 6 in a row without choking. It sure does make a difference when you don't stop at the end of the pool and take a few breaths before heading back. those 100 yard intervals are twice as hard now.
Later today I'll try and get in 3-4 miles of running. the weather has been absolutely awesome. Yesterday, after my 18 mile bike ride I went ahead and did a 10 minute run-off. this was my first one this year - man, did my legs feel like rubber. My feet were numb. Time to start doing that after every ride.
I promised everyone a look at my new puppy Maggie so here she is:
Ain't she a sweety!!!!!!!!!
