cruised around a little bit in the afteroon. practiced attacking a couple hills.
i had my transition area set up for when i got back. i hopped off the bike, parked it in the garage in it's usual spot, switched over to running mode, and was hitting the pavement in about 30 seconds.
did a quick warmup, but without kickboard or pull bouy. the pool opened late because the dumb lifeguard got there late. at least the pool was available (after being close almost 2 weeks).
w/u - 200
1x500 - 9:04 - went prett easy and kept it "relaxed," which for me means, "just shy of lungs exploding, sort of." i picked up the pace the last 150m, like i plan to do in the race this weekend.
2 x 50 - 41s, 39s
1 x 100 - 1:38
c/d - 200
played sand volleyball last night. it's never enough though. one match gets me warmed up and ready. then it's all over. ideally, i would play 2 or 3 matches. at least that would make it more worth the drive. oh well, i was lucky to play anyway since i was just subbing in for a team other than my own.
run around Mission Bay. oh how easy it would be to train if the weather were always perfect, and there were outstanding parks and running trails a block from the house. naaaahhh!!! that would be TOO easy.
rode a weird Lemond stationary dealy. it was kinda set up like a tri-bike with aero-bars. lots of adjustability, so i dialed it in, and rode for a while. it just had a big steel disc for resistance. there was a little "brake" on it that adjusted the difficulty level. pretty neat i guess.
went for a quick jog after ride. felt really good. don't actually know how far i went.
