Two swims into my sprint tri training and I'm already contemplating a 70.3. This is how it started with running, I just wanted to be able to run a 5k. Never wanted to run a half-marathon. A year later, I've run 3. So in all likelihood a year from now you will find me blogging about my 70.3 training :)
Today's swim went pretty well, except for the continuous foot cramps. I was supposed to do a 6 mile run today, but yesterday I spent 2 hours giving our front yard some much-needed TLC and my hamstrings were way too tight to attempt a run. So I swapped out my run for tomorrow's planned swim. Last Thursday I swam 600 yards in 24 minutes, tonight I did it in 21 1/2 minutes! I also swam 150 yards straight, a first for me. I did four 25s, three 50s, one 150, and two 100s. Last week I think I did six 25s, seven 50s, and one 100.
Before my gym session we spent the afternoon shopping for gear. I love it! We went to Road Runner Sports and I got an awesome new handheld, it has 3 pockets! One small one for a key, one big zippered pocket, and one open mesh pocket. And it's hot pink. I am so excited. We also went to Performance Bicycle and hubby got a bike helmet. Then we drove down to the Pearl Izumi outlet. I was in heaven! Hubby got a really cute cycling outfit and gloves, and I got an awesome tri suit! It was from last season so it was 30% off! And I got matching gloves.
Try not to be jealous:
I know the color coordination is going to help me kick butt at my tri. It's science.
