Feels like I had a breakthrough session in the pool today. I really felt as though I was skimming through the water. Coach told me everything looked really good today, too. I need to build on this.

Long run this evening. Family is out of town for spring break, but are coming back late tonight.

-Update-
Pretty good run tonight...too bad it's not going to be 50 degrees during Texas.

One month until Texas. Feeling pretty good about fitness, nutrition, and strategy at this point. I do want to practice my swim pacing a bit, and I do want at least 2 more long rides followed by short runs. For running, I want to, at minimum, match last month's miles, but the goal is still to reach 180.

One thing that I am kind of worried about is the weather. I have not had one single hot training day. I think max temp has been around 75 degrees, which falls short about 15-20 degrees off expected temps at Texas. It is what it is, though.

Boy, time does pass fast.

-Update-
Swam during lunch, then brick after work.

Did an FTP test as my bike. Worked hard. Used tri bike and set a new FTP of slightly higher than 220. Kind of where I guessed it'd be.

Hard ride today on a hilly course. Pushed it a bit to see how the legs would feel afterwards, for a short run. Goal was to average 185 watts and close to 140 bpm. That power will be close to 10% higher than I plan to average at TX.

For the first mile, the legs felt a little beat up, but they loosened up great and I could really tell they were ready to run.

I accidentally bumped my garmin and stopped it somewhere out around mile 65. Mileage is closer to 80. Rain came down around mile 65...Backed off effort at that point.

ETA: Used UCAN for this ride. 1.25 servings per dose, plus about 8 grams of protein. Need to up protein dose by 2-4 grams per flask, as I was hungry towards the end of the workout. Energy was fine, though.
