This week I met up with Danielle for some one on one swim lessons, specifically flip turns. I understand the concept, but have trouble with the execution. After some fine tuning and lots of practice I am on pace for nailing it shortly. She also coaches a weekly
My running seems to be getting better as the weather gets cooler. I hate running in the heat of the summer and count the days for it to cool off so I can run. This week I had two short runs at an easy pace to do. The paces are coming down and getting quicker, even at an easy effort. Finally!! I'm not fast by any stretch, but I am not super slow anymore.
I only had two bike workouts this week and it threw me for a loop. I feel I don't ride well with only two rides per week (unless I am totally exhausted). For future weeks, there will be at least 3 rides at varying paces. Today I ventured out with Christa for a short ride. It was a bit chilly out at first, but it warmed up in no time. As usual, we had a blast riding today and I baked some chocolate chip cookie bars for Christa to enjoy post ride as a thank you for coming out to ride the last few weeks.
With the holidays coming up, Christa is traveling and I will be alone to get my swim and bike workouts in. The Thursday night Iron Fit swims will be on hold after this week until the new year. But between now and then, I will keep my foot on the throttle with no letup. There's too much work to do before my first races of 2015.
