  1. swim
    good glorious cold day 2000 m 01:02 49:53 pace

    It's a real chilly day for an outdoor swim and the pool isn't exactly super warm, but as long as you are swimming it feels warm enough and the sun was brilliant. I got to see the Chinese... read more

      Nice long swim. Keep an eye on the Chinese - they might be building some islands in the pool and then claim it as their territory. ;>}

    good Wogging 2.1 mi 00:30 14:21 pace

    This is a strange progressive workout that the coach made which involves at least 20 minutes of walking and a lot of incline. It wasn't super fast, but I had a very hard time with this workou... read more

    good 1200 m 00:35 46:56 pace

      Ah yes, the big change at work - the bane of the working man or woman's existence. Don't have a sleepless night fretting about it. Actually, after that run and swim, you'll probably sleep well.

    good difficult workout 01:00

    Had a workout with the coach, which started off badly and just got worse. it just didn't go well, and I wanted to cry through a lot of it. He is a big isometric guy and the exercises for tho... read more

    great Stationary 11.21 mi 00:40 16.8mph pace

    I'm getting a little faster on the cycle. This might be in part to the fact that I forgot headphones so I had to cycle without podcasts. Definitely getting somewhere...

    • Bill H.

      How can you be getting somewhere when you start and end at the same spot? 😀 Definitely a brisk cycle at 17mph!

    great Long course 2000 m 00:53 42:38 pace

      Haha. I have running buds like that. A well timed "uh-huh" is good for another half mile or so. Good to read that you're back out on the trail.

    great Back in the swing of things. 1500 m 00:36 38:37 pace
