Well, here it is. The first day of my new training program. 20 weeks until Timberman.
And what a way to start it - first off - got stopped by 5-0 for rolling through a stop. And one of the only times I did not have my seat belt on - got written up for that also.
But anyway - life goes on. Put the negative things in life in the past and concentrate on the positive things around you.
I was back in the pool this morning. After watching the 70.3 Championship on Saturday I was a little stoked to push hard. I watched the swim stroke of the men and realize that my stroke looks alot better but somehow they just go faster. so I really worked on my sprints today. Getting in a total of around 2000 yards with 6x200 intervals plus warm up and cool down and the sprints. I did some pull buoy and paddle work as well. If I can just get moving faster I would be happy. I do need to get in some open water practice as soon as possible.
Over the weekend I went out looking for a new wetsuit. While doing that I found an awesome accessory for my bike. It is a new carbon water holder for the seat that will also hold 2 tubes and 4 - CO2 cylinders. It is way cool. It is made by Blackwell - I can't even find a picture of it anywhere. But I do know it is on my bike. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a 30 minute run for this afternoon with 6x30sec fartleks. The weather is great today but is suppose to turn south tomorrow. Well for now until tomorrow - CAIO
