We both had a lot of fun and are looking to improve at Austin on Feb 14th!
As for today's workouts I ended up having a solid one. First I hit the pool and got in 2000M of aquatics fun. Started out doing 1000M around an RPE 4-5. Then I did 250M of drills. Followed by 500M of easy laps (RPE 2-3) focusing on form and then a cool down of 250M. The water was freaking cold in the pool again. They must be having trouble with the heater again. I couldn't find the manager to complain and I was in a hurry to get out of there so hopefully they will have it fixed.
This evening I was schedule to do an easy 30 minute run. The temperature was an absolutely glorious 62 degrees which meant I could run in shorts! I still put on a long sleeve DriFit shirt but it was so nice to run in shorts again. I put on the iPod and took off through the neighborhood and ended up in one of those "zones" or "trances" thinking about work and training. Next thing I know I am on the other side of the neighborhood and my Garmin tells me I am already at 30 minutes. So, I figured just keep going and ended up doing 4.5 miles in 40 minutes. That is a pace just under 9 minutes per mile. Which is perfect for an easy run!
Tomorrow is an early morning one hour run and then after work a half hour at the pool.
