I'm looking forward to spending a quick weekend in Panama City Beach next week to cheer on all the Ironman Florida folks. I still have wonderful memories of that race. Let's hope they have the same kind of perfect weather we had.
Meanwhile, I'm trying not to fall completely out of shape. I have gotten myself back into a regular swimming routine (Mondays and Fridays @ Burkwood with Rick, Wednesdays with Karen and the guppies). I am even forcing myself to do lots and lots of crazy-looking flip turns. Sometimes I even do one correctly...but not often. Thinking about the flip turn does make swimming a little more interesting. Today was a milestone. I did not inhale much water on the flips. Go me!
Meanwhile, in the lane next to Rick, Mr Perfect Swimmer made it look so easy. Both Rick and I stopped to watch him execute every stroke perfectly AND use his flip turns to travel half-way down the lane. Yes, I suffered a minor bout of swimming envy.
Tomorrow morning, I am taking advantage of my Richmond Triclub membership to attend a free 3-hour biking clinic @ Endorphin. I figure I can always use some tips on how to become a stronger cyclist. I'll let you know what I learn
My running continues to come along slowly, but steadily. I'm gradually adding more running time to my 30 minute run/walk workout. I won't pretend that my knees feel 100% like they used to, but it's better than nothing.
And one more thing...Go Phillies!!
