I went to the pool with all the intentions of doing a nice and easy 800M swim. Nothing too difficult, just nice and slow. Somewhere, I got a while hair up my butt and decided that it would be fun to do some sort of 10-minute time trial. Why, you ask? Well, if I am going to do this indoor triathlon in March that I am looking at, they only allow 10 minutes in the pool. 10 minutes only. period.
After swimming about 60oM, I took a nice break and then went for my 10 minutes. Obviously I went out too fast and had to catch my breath too soon. All in all I was able to do about 350M ... only. Pathetic. This will change. Don't you worry about it!
Tomorrow I have a scheduled 30 minute run, and I hope to get in a spin session. I know I won't be getting up in the morning which means I will be doing these back to back.Hmm. Should be fun.
Remember that nice weather I had yesterday? Well it was nice again today. But you can't get too comfortable with this kind of weather in January... in ND. We are currently under a winter weather advisory with blizzard like conditions. Not much snow in the forcast, but I guess the high tomorrow is supposed to be somewhere around a whopping negative 40 degrees with wind chill. YUCK.
10 minute time trial = 350M
