I picked this point to add is some additional swim training so I started going to one the TCSD (Tri Club San Diego) group swims on Tuesday evening at Ventura Cove with Bill Gleason (Gleason Endurance Coaching). This is a great way to get practice in race simulated conditions and work on specific open water drills that you can’t quite get from the pool. The result is that Tuesdays have become a huge training day for me with a 5:45 am spin class with my primary coach (Bernie Sidney) followed by a 4-5 mile run. Ironically, it seems to fit my schedule since Mondays and Wednesdays are such long days in the office – I often don’t get to work out on those days. I’m building mileage and pushing to new limits – feeling stronger.
