So, nothing really exciting going on here. This week is a rest week on my plan. Yesterday was a 1400 swim with the main set being 4*100 @Z2 and 5*75 sprint. I was definitely a little tired still from Sunday's long ride. All together it didnt go too bad. My times were 58.35, 59.82, 1:00.50, 1:01.45, 1:02.01. I guess the consistency wasnt too bad with the first and the last only having a difference of 3.5 seconds. I did notice in my sprints that I am splashing too much somewhere. I am not sure if it is my arm coming out of the water, or (more then likely) my arm going into the water. I was swallowing alot of water when I was breathing, so I know I am definitely splashing too much. I will continue to work on my stroke. I may need to focus on how my hand/arm enters the water when I sprint.
Today is up in the air. My original plan was a 70 min ride today. I knew I could do this ride either today or Thursday. Because it will be 20 degrees warmer on Thursday, I decided to postpone it to Thurs.So that makes today either a rest day or a run day. I am a little tired right now, but I always seem to get extra energy later in the day. So we shall see.
I finally found a used wetsuit. I posted a wanted add on SlowTwitch and got a response. It went out this morning so I am hoping to have it before the weekend. If it does, I may join several others for an OWS on Saturday.
As of now I am about 99.9 percent sure I am going to do the SC 1/2 IM. After Sunday's long ride, I now know I will be able to accomplish this with the proper training. I plan on starting a 20 wk plan in Mid May. The challenge is to merge the HIM plan with my current OLY Plan. At least my OLY race is only 5 weeks into the HIM plan. Because I will be in the build and peak phases, currently doing 2* a week per sport, I will likely add the 3rd day of each to my existing Oly plan and add the easier days since I will be pushing on the days currently planned for the Oly. At least I still have a few weeks to tweek this plan
