53 days to go until Redman. Just 53.
53 days to go, and I finally made it 100% through a 3 mile track workout. 3 miles... and I have a 70.3 coming. Of course the intensity is different, but one would think I would make it better through a 3 mile track workout than I have been lately. In any case the workout was good. Almost broke a 10 minute pace with a 10:01. The rest of my 400's were also between 10:01 and 11:08 pace, with the exception of one which was 11:48. Not sure what happened there... maybe I stopped to bake a ham.
I know those times aren't staggering fast, but when I reflect on last Summer's track work and fast was a 13 or 14 minute pace on 400's, I can certainly appreciate the improvement. I know getting the right medical protocols in place to deal with my challenges was key. I hope to continue to experience improvement.
Our Masters pool is closed for resurfacing, so I've had to go back to 24. Ugh! After swimming at the fitness center, I forgot how much I loathe the pool at 24. MC picked me up at 5am and I got my swim done. It was a good workout. Seemed like a really quick 2500, because I was done just a couple minutes shy of an hour -- surprising since I had some IM in there and I can back or breast stroke. For some reason though, my butterfly is coming along nicely. I don't get that at all.
Looking at a 1:30 trainer ride today and a run/bike tomorrow and a 3200m open water swim on Friday.
I was going take care of my trainer ride at lunch and stay late at work to make up :30 minutes, but I brought my gear, but not my bike. How's that for forgetful?
52 1/2 days. :)
