Did a final swim prep at the reopened pool (clean/painted/nice water)
200, 200,200, 250,150, 50,50.
Needed that confidence builder. Now to fight through the washing machine Sunday morning.
Shake down ride on the bike to maka sure everything works.
Finally an OWS at Lake Padden. Water was glassy, but then you could see all the crud floating on the surface.
Did 3 10+ minute loops. Felt ok but my imagination goes wild thinking what it's going to feel like at 1.8 miles . Will be one of the biggest mental challenges of all time. Never stop, keep the stroke going. Also will back tighten up?
Walk the dogs at Lake Padden trails before the swim.
Walked the dogs in the morning, Weather is misty.
Evening run at the WWU track
4 x 800
8 x 100 on the football field
Wanted to swim but pool is closed till Wed. Wasn't into a OWS today, maybe tomorrow.
Walked the dogs at Whatcom falls park.
Monday morning. Feeling good, back to about 95% normal from the cold. Even drank some wine last night watching two movies and Ice Truckers (crazy Canadians).
Final week of touch up. A little swim here a little run here, keep all the joints and mucles limber.
Yea!, around 4PM the sun came out and dried the roads off. Went for a ride out to the Airport and back. Lungs felt good, no dry throat.
Taking bike into the shop monday morning. After cleaning up the chains, noticed my seat was loose??
Probably do two more rides this week after bike comes outof the shop.
Sunday Morning, one week to IMC. Went to bed early last nite, cold is receding ,but still have the slight lung congestion. At work yesterday, listening to couple of people joke around, tried to laugh and just went into a spastic cough.
Wanted to swim today (OWS) but wife said better not to swim, so I thought a bike ride would be in order. It's raining this morning. Ugh. Still early in the morning, maybe later this afternoon.
