Day 80

Thursday, Day 80

Evening: Open Water Swim, 1200 ish

4 loops, 300

Thoughts: CGI Racing puts on this weekly open water swim that I've been drooling over from across the state line for months. It starts at 6:00 on a work day, so I've waited until now to get my act in gear to head out. Got reprieve from the bossman to come in early and leave at 4:00, braved the traffic, and made it there with time to spare.

This open water swim is SUCH a huge service to the Philly area tri community. Big. Huge. Supersized. And worth a post all it's own, since it was the first time I (a) put on my wetsuit in public, (b) swam in the darned thing, and (c) did an open water this season. Hmmmm....very interesting indeed. In-Deed.

Evening: Run, 4.5 miles, 55 minutes

Thoughts: I said to Mighty M as I walked out the door at nearly 9 (!) that I was doing my run under protest. I wanted it on the record. Frankly, it turned out to be a perfectly enjoyable run, but all I wanted after getting in from the NJ drive was a bowl of spaghetti and my bed. Here I am after 10 and still no spaghetti and no bed. Thankfully, though, there has been a shower to wash the pond scum/run sweat off. Seeeexy.

Open water swims are the best, especially after months of following the lines and turning every 25 yards/meters.

Eat, woman, EAT!
Then sleep.
you are going so well :) (I'd have given the run the flick-pass, but That's b/c I'm not IRON)

Pond scum PLUS sweat = I think I could smell you here in NYC ;)
