Today was a brick workout of swimming and biking. Once again starting late, I was able to swim 1034 yds. out of 2400 yds assigned before pool closure. Tonight there was a brief period where I really felt like I finally connected all the dots. Everything seemed in sync for about two lengths of the pool. My breathing, pull as I twisted my body, kick, head position, everything. Since I was little I seemed to be tall and lanky. This was the case until my mid twenties when I started carrying weight in my torso. As I was gliding through the water this evening, taking full advantage of my long arms and body, I had the thought that I missed out not getting into swimming for sport as a child. I think I might have done well. Anyhow, I have the opportunity to swim well now. I might even look into the U.S. Masters Swimming organization. A program for adult swimming and competition. Might be fun!
After the swim I threw on my Voler California Triathlon kit, grabbed my bike and helmet and headed out for an hour ride with 6 x 30 seconds fast, high cadence spins.
As usual I went to Chandler Blvd but as I have been doing lately, after riding to the end of the path, I immediately decided to begin exploring. The moon was almost full and there was plenty of visibility out there. The bike felt very natural to my hands. I really enjoy seeing these new areas.
Look what I rode past!
Even though I work in the film industry, (that is, when I work), it was kind of cool. I found all kinds of hidden roads that I could ride in safety.
Tomorrow is an easy recovery week 45 minute run. Am I in a recovery week? Until tomorrow my friends.
