Wicked Wednesday

Man, hard bike this morning. This is the first time I've had time to complete the entire IslaGiatt workout. I really like it, but it's extremely tough.

Swam during lunch. Coach gives me a B+ on technique. I'm working to correct the rising L arm and head bob issue. Getting a lot of feedback, which is awesome. I am going to try to get 3 hard sessions a week from here on out.

Finished the day off with a run. Good day overall. Expected to be fatigued for this workout, but actually felt great.

Ah, glorious sleep. Went to bed last night before 10P and slept until 6A. I need a few more nights like that to catch up.

-Update-
Coach had us test today to establish base pace. I def. went out too hard in the first 3x200. Based off test, my base pace will be in the 1:30-1:35/100 yards. Converted into meters, that's aprox 1:45 per 100. The goal over the next 2 months is to bring that pace down under 1:40/100m.

Coach identified a few flaws in my stroke that can be fixed with a few drills. First, left hand is coming up, rather than down, when I'm reaching. She stated that's adding resistance to my stroke. Second, my head is not steady. I'm moving it around a bit. That, too, is adding resistance. Third, my hips are sinking a bit. That was easier to correct that than the other two.

I've ordered the LG Course and the Giro Air Attack helmets. Going to give them a try, and getting rid of the one I do not want.

Moderate swim, then checked into barracks, and 30 minutes later started my long run.

Tried to write out "D00D TRI" on the inside of the 3 mile track. That's harder than it looks! You really have to have some good reference points! After the first letter, it was easier. Too bad it's upside down on the map!
