On Wednesday morning I had a dream that I decided to enter Ironman Canada. Apparently the race wasn’t that popular because only eight of us showed up. I thought we were supposed to swim in Lake Okanagan, but there was a change of plans. Instead we had to run to a pool to swim laps. The pool was so short that I could push off one wall and reach the next side without having to kick at all. No one could tell me how long the pool was or how many laps I would have to swim. Sadly my alarm went off before I reached the bike portion of the race.
Yesterday I rode from my house to work for the first time. The ride in to work is great! Downhill the whole way, and I got to the office feeling really refreshed. It took me about 48 mins to ride in. The ride home…well, what goes down, must come up. The second half of the ride, the part that I’ve been avoiding until now, is uphill almost the entire way with very little reprieve of flat or downhill road. It took me about an hour to make it home. I wanted to swim in the evening but I was pooped so I called it off. Swimming tonight instead. I did get a run in over lunch yesterday too, so all in all it was a busy day for the legs.
