I completely blew off my Tuesday and Wednesday workouts. Life â€“ and work â€“ just got in the way. Also, I was feelinâ€™ pretty lazy. Iâ€™ll admit it. But laziness is NOT an option at this point! My Olympic triathlon is in just over a week. And trust me â€“ 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 battleâ€¦ 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), Iâ€™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, itâ€™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 Iâ€™m making the right decisionâ€¦ 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!
