- To finish the swim and enjoy it.
- To complete my first tri.
- No time goals --learn and enjoy.

THE SWIM IS ON!
At 10am this morning when I checked the website for Galena, those 4 words appeared. The water temperature is still 59 but it is a go. I felt like jumping up out of my skin. The emotions are like riding a roller coaster. By no means do I down play the bike and the run, but for me this is about the swim.
This morning at swim was great preparation also. Coach had us do some drills going around a fit ball in the water. We did right and left turns. Then we worked on how it felt for our entire group to take off together. I got hit and kicked. We were all laughing when we were done.
Tonight I began the packing process. There are piles everywhere. Hubby is out of town all weekend so Bino and I are leaving in the morning. Hooch is going to school because her physics class is going to Six Flags to study and do a project on roller coasters. So we are all heading different directions.
Waddling to pack for MY FIRST TRI................

I think global warming is B.S. and/or the Tri-gods are against me. Water temperature is still at 59. Air temp will be in the upper 40's at race time. I realize that if the swim is off on Saturday there will be other ones but I feel like that I have been a little kid waiting for Xmas.
I had a nice easy 3 mile run tonight. It felt great out on this crisp evening.
Waddling and counting down................

Nice and easy was the theme for today's workouts. Swim was 1500 which included a broken 1050. I concentrated on breathing and form . This evening I rode my trainer for 30 min. Everyday I get alittle more antsy for the weekend.
Current Water Temp = 59
Chance Of Showers
Hi: 65° - Partly sunny with a 30 percent chance of showers. High in the mid 60s.
Waddling and waiting.............
