Tuesday - swim a 500 free, 300 back, 200 breast warm up. 6x50's faster than race pace but not all out. Felt really strong and fast. arms slicing through the water, shoulders felt great. trying out the new googles for race day if they let us do a dive start. really enjoyed it. feel like I need to be doing more exercise, but I guess that's what a taper is!
going for a 2 mile tempo run tomorrow. I am going to time myself and hope against all hope that I can come in at 18 minutes. Okay, for you speedies out there, I know I am horribly slow at biking and running, but I'll get there. If I can hold a 9 minute mile for 2 miles I will be THRILLED. do you hear me?? T.H.R.I.L.L.E.D. I am a pretty consistent 10 minute miler right now, slowing down to about a 10:30 or 11 when I go 5 miles or so.
Actually, I figure I need a garmin to really set up some pacing and tempo work. right now it's kind of guesswork until I reach home and look at my timer on the stove. HA!
