Day 173 - Easy Active Recovery, Coach ESP and HITS Half Ironman

July 29, 2013      239.6 lbs

I'm still not feeling great today. Fortunately, I saw that my coach had changed my rest day to a 45 minute active recovery swim day.

So I went to the pool and just started swimming. No timing sets or anything else, just easy swimming.

Again, a bunch of children showed up but without the pressure of timed sets, it didn't matter.

My coach, Chris Hauth, sent me a message asking when my first event is? Now, he knows I'm doing Ironman Arizona.
I think he noticed that my focus is drifting lately. Especially without a goal in the near future. We started discussing options and unless something changes, I'm going to sign up for the 70.3, HITS triathlon on Saturday December 7, 2013. It is a half Ironman distance. 1.3 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. I feel good about it. No nerves at all only a bit of excitement. I figure if I have come this far in only five months, I should be doing really well by December 7.
