I completely blew off my Tuesday and Wednesday workouts. Life – and work – just got in the way. Also, I was feelin’ pretty lazy. I’ll admit it. But laziness is NOT an option at this point! My Olympic triathlon is in just over a week. And trust me – I do not feel prepared! Eck.
Thus, a double workout this morning. Getting in a good double makes me feel so much more confident. And really, feeling confident is half the battle… especially when it comes to tris!
First up: a 1,200 meter swim.
In regards to the Wetty or Not, Here I Come! debate (whether I should rent a wetsuit for my triathlon; the lake is going to be in low 70s), I’ve decided to go suitless and brave the cold. Why? I asked the lifeguard what the temp of the pool was this morning, and he said 70! And really, it’s not that cold at all.
I know a wetsuit helps you during the swim by making you more buoyant, but I hate feeling constricted, the rental would cost $50, and I would lose at least a minute in transition getting that darn thing off. I hope I’m making the right decision… I hate to be cold.
After swimming, I came home, grabbed the Husband, and went on a run. I did about 3.5 miles.
What a morning. Can I crawl back in bed now?
Pre-swim fuel was PB toast:
And afterwards, Panda Puffs, banana, and Greek yogurt.
Have a good day!
Do you think the wetsuit makes you feel safer in the water? I know you have a little fear of open water swimming you’ve been braving through (you’re tougher than me!!), so do you think the wet suit makes you feel more secure in the open water or is just totally constricting and annoying?
