Back-ordered winter?

Wow what a blizzard this morning. Its not feeling like spring anymore. Its hard to imagine my first triathlon which is only 6 days away when you have blowing snow like this.

On the plus side, I had a great swim this morning moving my average pace down to 1:52 / 100 meters. Although I feel ready to try out this triathlon thing, I’m not sure if nature agrees with me. Hopefully the snow clears and some warmer weather shows up in the next 6 days.

GET back in the pool!

I feel like I have been cheating on my swims lately. The pool was running reduced hous over Easter so I have only had 1 swim in the last 10 days.

This morning was back at it and I felt slow, even though my times say other wise. I managed to pull off 2000 meters in my 45 minute slot of time. But I was in the fast lane today slowing everyone else down. My feet were getting slapped alot and I was passed a number of times. Its humbling to be giving it my all and still be passed like I’m noit even trying.

Sweet spring morning

Had a great swim this morning. My average pace is down to 1:54 / 100m taken over the course of 1700 meters worth of swimming. I’m happy to see some progress. 

Although I arrive at the pool in total black, when I left I was greeted with a clear dark blue sky as the sun was starting to rise. Spring is on its way and I think its going to be a beautiful day!
