A run at the track and a run with the dog

First off, a report on yesterday’s run test.  While I felt sluggish throughout, my results weren’t too shabby.  Coach says my pace is 30 seconds faster per mile than last time and I got spiffy new HR zones to boot!  My legs are pretty worn out from the effort so I’m babying them for a couple days.

Masters swim went well this week.  It sounds silly but I finally seem to be making progress in learning how to use all my swim muscles properly.  I’ve had actual sore arms and lats for the first time. 

We managed to have one agility class – finally! - this evening, after over a month of classes cancelled due to rain.  Stanley and I are still coming along as a team, but there is no shortage of enthusiasm!  We got a snippet of video from a couple of our runs at class.

And for the Stanley fans, here is a photo from the other day, when he had “made his bed” the way he likes it for afternoon naps.

I totally make my bed a special way for my kitties. Did I just admit that? Oh man.

Stanley looks so comfortable!

OK, I love Stanley! I just want to grab him and hug him sweet buddy.

I know what you mean about the swim. Once you 'get it' and can engage all that stuff, you're golden.

Nice swim!! Isn't it great when you are sore after a swim! (Only a real triathlete would be excited about being sore!)

EXCELLENT!!! Congrats about the pool AND the track - way to rock it out Molly! :) Oh - and I LOVE Stanley - absolutely adorable... :) Almost makes me wish I had a dog of my own (sshhhhh - don't tell the kitties!)

Awesome job, Molly! 30 seconds faster per mile... that's amazing!

Loved the video of you and Stanley. That looks like a LOT of fun. I wonder if I could get my Collie to do even a snippet of those agility skills. He needs a job. :o)
