Swim, Monday, T3

Disclaimer: Carrie don't read this. You might have a worse crush.

Got back in the pool with T3 after ALL the crazy travel in the last month. I DID stay up with the swim in Portland and London it was not my FIRST time back in, in one month. It felt great as Chrissie took us through a really good workout.

Got through the warm-up and then it was 3 x 200, timed with each one descending.

First 200- 3:45 (crap, went out too fast, will I get faster on the next one?)
Second 200- 3:41 (wow?!! Can I go under 3:40 for #3??!!)
Third 300- 3:36 (yes...I did and felt as though both my lungs and heart would burst through my chest.)

Then it was 6 x 100 after a small recovery set. The goal being that 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 would have consistent times, taking off around 5 seconds after each double. (80%, 85% and 90%)

1 & 2- 1:55 I felt great and my pacing felt even...and I was happy with the consistent time!!

3rd- 1:52
4th- 1:50 at least I got there, right?

5th- 1:45 and then coach Pain through down the gauntlet, "can you go under 1:45 she asks??"
6th- 1:42 .....the answer is yes Coach.

After 2900 in the pool, it felt great to be back in. I have decided to do the aqua bike at the upcoming Longhorn which would consist of a 1.2 mile swim and a 56 mile bike. No 13.1 mile run at the end...I am not ready for the Decker terrain and well, I want to be done early and drinking my beers as I watch the agony of my friends out on the run course! October I come!!

I got in an awesome 6 mile run yesterday, I am still bike commuting as I am trying to put off buying a new car and a car payment as long as possible, and tonight I will head back to the pool with T3.

Life is good.
