Sunday was an amazing day here in Calgary. It was about 14 deg C (60 deg F) out, the sky was blue and the sun was shining. It was impossible to not want to get out for a run. I dressed up in capris, a short sleeve tech shirt and a long sleeve tech top. I was almost overdressed. I took the run pretty easy. There is still some ice and snow out so there were points where it was slippery and fairly slow going, but it felt so good to be out.
This morning it was back to my triathlon swim clinic. Since I missed most of December and the first two weeks in January I think folks almost thought I was going to bail on the clinic. I almost did bail this morning though! I had a rough sleep and opted to reset my alarm for an extra hour when it went off at 4:30 this morning. As I lay in bed I realized I was actually pretty awake so I hopped out of bed and got my behind to the pool. And I was even the first one in the water! I grabbed the far lane and got to work. There were some new people in the clinic and a lady I didn’t recognize got in the lane with me. She was most likely pretty new… A few times I’d be swimming up to the wall and she’d be resting there. Just as I arrived to the wall she’d take off, except I was faster than her and kept having to pass her all the time, hoping I wouldn’t get hit by one of her flippers. Then a few times I was swimming behind her as we got into the shallow section. She’d hit the shallow part and just stand up and a couple of times I just about head butted her in the back of her knees! Argh, it was frustrating… On the positive side I got to debut my new sushi suit and I got some good compliments on it!
Tonight was spin class at Bow Cycle. The more I ride the more I realize that I am desperately in need of a new seat and most likely another bike fit. I also need to tack some aerobars on as well so I’ll probably try to get that all done in one go. Sometime…
I’m sorry that I’m so behind on my comments on your blogs! I still have over 400 posts on Google Reader left to read, plus Blogger has been blocked at work so I can’t read and comment over lunch anymore… 🙁 Sincere thanks to all of you that have commented to congratulate me on my race though. I appreciate all of your support!!
