I felt like 4 laps of free style was hard so what will I do in an open water swim? I am slow no matter what I am swimming. Would I do better to try to speed up my breaststroke which I am more comfortable with than to keep working on freestyle which is so hard for me? Which should I do in an open water swim? I can't imagine yet not having the safety of that nearby wall or the end of the pool. Tuesday was not a confidence builder. It took me back some. I cannot imagine swimming 800 yards straight or whatever it is you swim in a sprint. Who do I think I am to think I can do a tri when I swim so poorly? You can see the question that kept going through my mind as I swam. I think I did more laps just to end on some good ones which I did. I did feel good all day from having swum in the morning and I loved having more time after school to get stuff done and not be running off to the gym. But .....again.........Tuesday's swim was tough.
2. I am still doing fine on the treadmill. Not at all sure what that is about. I'm looking forward to getting outside this weekend. I don't remember a December ever being this dark so early in the afternoon.
3. Did anyone see Runner's World newest Rave Run? I think it is in Norway. (I'm too lazy to walk upstairs and check.) It is a stunningly beautiful winter scene. It's one of my favorite Rave Runs I've seen.
4. Jameson came down last weekend with his sweet little puppy, Jax. He shook (Jax not Jameson) most of the time he was here as those pesky yellow cats (who are much bigger than he is) were everywhere. I got some great pics though. Then I visited
