Tonight, rather than do the “fitness” workout, I did the masters workout. It ended up being 3000 meters, mostly in sets of 500s. I was pretty proud of that swim and even managed to do flip turns with no pain. I think I’m finally whole again. I’m so thankful for that.
Swimming, my mind immediately went to Canada. I have 11 months until that race. I would like to break 16 hours this time around. That will be tough on this course considering the difficulty level of the bike portion, but I know what I need to do to get stronger on the bike. I need to spend a ton of time on the bike and vary my workouts as much as possible. I need to make sure I do plenty of hill workouts and work hard at getting comfortable going downhill fast. I can manage that.
