The nasty cold that hit me right after GWN has FINALLY left me, and I've spent the last week slowly getting back into the grove of things. UGH -- It's amazing how hard it is to swim after two weeks off!
SO, the goals for the Calgary 70.3 are this: use it as a training race and a way to bump up my fitness from the two weeks lost. :) I can do that!
Not much has been going on -- I had a bike ride to do, but I waited around until noon yesterday wondering if it was going to rain. I left at exactly 12:00pm, and had gone about 5km, when the rain finally came. LOL -- Wonderful!! Every time!! Hahahahaha!!
I'm glad I took arm warmers and my sexy bright neon yellow cycling shell. I laughed at myself when I bought that thing -- I mean, the last time I bought anything of that colour was 1986, but hey, visibility is a big thing, right? Hahahahaha!
Today, I had a good 4000m swim with a main workout that got me movin' again! In between sets, I positioned my body around this jet of water -- free massage. Hee-hee!! Have you ever watched when a water jet in the pool hits your leg? It is pretty gross -- the pressure of the water pushes your skin so it's flapping like a dog's lips when they hang their head out a fast moving vehicle.
Ah yes, I know -- this is why I haven't been blogging -- really. I truly have NOTHING else to say! Hahahahahaha!!
Happy training everyone! I know I'm happy to be back at it! :) :)
