rode to the bike shop to have things checked out.
The countdown continues. 48hrs 8min 20 sec until race time.
At the pool this morning, I wore the top that I'll be racing in. I didn't even know I had it on, so that's good.
one arm drill x 100
kick x 50
pull x 50
free x 50
1x200 @ 3:25
c/d drills, etc.
1x50 "golf" just for fun. shot a record-low 72.
this was the ideal workout for me. short and sweet. touched speed a couple times, and got a good confidence boost from it. coach would be proud.
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.
