Yesterday I swam 600 yds twice, timing myself both times. In the pool, I'm doing this distance in about 13 minutes. How that translates to open water...I have no idea. I'm going to find a lake to practice in this weekend.
I also signed up for the Y Freedom Tri on June 29th in Pearland. It's a 300 meter pool swim...heck yeah!
If anyone has any advice on goggles, it would be much appreciated. Every pair I've tried fogs up on me. Even the ones that say "anti-fog". It's not really a big deal in the pool, but it's hard to sight buoys when you can't see, and trying to rinse the inside of my goggles out when I can't touch bottom is not an easy task for me. Help. This was a contributing factor to my Silverlake meltdown.
Hannah and I took advantage of the cooler temps this morning, and hit the road. She rode her bike along side me while I ran. It was great. She carried my water bottle and pepper spray in her little bike basket, and didn't complain at all. We went 3.5 miles, and she says she wants to go farther tomorrow. Sweet!
Getting runs in when she is out of school has been a problem in the past, because I can't leave her alone. Now her bike skills are good enough to come with me. I'm so excited! I won't have to run circles in my living room this summer!
