Thursday - August 21

Probably going to be a rest day.  I thought about getting my Sunday run done today as I had an optional swim on the schedule without a pool to swim in.  I will try to swim tomorrow sometime but not in the am as I have the weeks long run then.

Travel home later today!

Peasantman Swim

Normally I think that a long swim is me being an idiot with my sighting but this one I seemed to sight well, but looked long before we even started.  The bike had rain on the early part along with a pretty strong breeze out of the north which is the direction you are going with the climbing.  The run was ok, better than Musselman but still leaving some on the table. 

Had the super sherpa Dudley along today, he wound up volunteering on the water, which was planned and the bike course which wasn't!

Short and easy run and swim.  Can't say the swim was overly easy and I have no idea where that pace came from as the lake was quite choppy (again!).  And F-ING cold!  I don't think it was much above 65 degrees. but I am a cold water wimp so it may have been.

My Saturday long bike was moved to today so I can have a bit of a 1 day taper for Sundays race, I had to cut it 25 minutes short as I had a work meeting.  That was tough on a Friday morning to get that long of a ride in!
