I don't have anything too exciting to report with respect to training. I'm just trying to get the work done, one day at a time. Swimming continues to feel new and exciting as my stroke changes bit by bit. I have some sort of a *thing* about swimming in evenings (I hate it) but I show up for my weekly lesson and always come home happy and energized. I was able to translate that into a really good swim at masters late this week where I just plugged away at the workout without the negative thoughts that usually enter my head during a swim. It didn't hurt that I got to play with my new Garmin 910XT in the pool twice this week either!
This is my new favorite recovery/anytime drink. Best coconut water I've tried and it tastes exactly like sticking a straw in a fresh coconut (which I've also been doing lately but it's a bit messier).
I've worn out most of the SwimOutlet suits I bought for training last year, so when I heard Splish was having a sale earlier this week, I took advantage! If nothing else, I can continue to amuse my swim coaches and the lifeguards at the lap swim pool.
The first race of the year is tomorrow morning! My bag and bike are packed up and everything laid out. The hard part will be going to bed extra early and waking up extra early due to the time change overnight. My main goals are just to remember how to blaze through transition quickly and to go hard, right on through the finish line. Another lesson in suffering, if I'm doing it right.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!
