Swim
  • 15m
  • 800.00 yards
  • -----

Swam the last 800 yards of the B2B course with Ron and Alex. Kevin safety boated for us. I swam without wetsuit and was fine after the initial 10 strokes or so. Water had some chop due to wind. Sighting in chop more difficult due to spray.

B2B full swim start

On Friday we sent out to visit the swim start.

The name of the game is keeping everything in the bank and just staying loose.

With these instructions in mind, I didn't push it at all during this swim.

Early morning walk with Emma.

It's getting close now!


I'm not loving the current forecast but (1) it's only Monday and (2) I ran my first half marathon in sleet and freezing rain.  It will not be sleet and freezing rain on Saturday!

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Davis

Run
  • 32m
  • 3.44 miles
  • 09m 18s /Mi

My Garmin locked up 20 seconds into the run. It vibrated like it had found the foot pod but I looked down about a quarter mile into the run and it said 20 seconds. I looked down a little bit later and it still said 20 seconds. I ran the same route off the bike that I did on Wednesday so I am just repeating the data here and rounding up a little.


I didn't know how to do a soft reset on the Forerunner 310xt. (hold lap and mode at the same time for 7 seconds and then release). That did the trick. Forerunner seems happy now
