No more 25s or 50s for me!

Except for drills of course.

Last night I went to the pool and I swam - are you ready? - 300 yards straight! I know that is not a lot, but I could barely swim one length when I started, and this is only my 3rd swim of training. I did three 100s, one 300, and one 100 for a total of 700 yards. I did my 600 in 18 minutes, a 3 1/2 minute improvement from last time. My first goal is to do it under 15 minutes. Since this is such a short portion of the race, I'm not going to focus on speed too much as long as I can do the distance.

In other news, I am officially registered! As of June 26th, if all goes as planned, I will be a true-blue triathlete!

I have one more run tonight then a rest day tomorrow. My legs are already tired from this week, I know this is going to be a tough one. Just gotta keep my eye on the prize!
