Great training day today with The Mermaid. First a 5 mile run in the 22 degree weather. Followed by a great swim. Which felt so warm because I had been soooo cold running. We made videos of our swims. What a cool way to really evaluate my stroke and body/head alignment. Fun stuff!!! I am a little jealous of how graceful The Mermaid looks in … Continue reading Sunday Prep

What a day! Ran this morning with the The Mermaid. It was nice out, at that time, around 50 degrees and clear. Ran the bridge loop. It felt good to be running again. Came home and changed into my biking gear, including a new tank that my hubby had made for me! It’s an Ironman CDA ‘In Training’ tank. Nothing like that to keep me … Continue reading Triple Workout Sweaty Sunday!
