    good Training for life / spin class 16 mi 00:51 18.8mph pace

    Sometimes I'm not sure what I'm training for these days, my first Triathlon in August - or just life.

      Always train for life. If you do then everything else falls into place.

      As a work-from-home dad, I can empathise. When I was in the US, I sometimes felt like a glorified taxi driver.

    good Weights 00:40

    After I hit the spin class today, I hit the free weights for a bit. Did some arms, legs, and core. It's getting a bit easier, time to up the weights I guess.

      Awesome, I've been looking all over for that quarter. Can you mail that to my bank account for me? Thanks bud! As for the weather, my phone said 39 with real feel of 34, not too shabby.

      yay! Fun new watch. I've never had much use for the swim metrics, but having a lap counter is invaluable. Frees your mind up to concentrate on your form.

      Oh, those unclipping falls. I have had so many of those on my mountainbike. On a MTB you can get protective gear which makes you look badass.... sadly I think that cool factor doesn't work on road bikes LOL. You'll get used to it soon.

      how does Sue's alphabet trick work? counting lengths with ABC? Seriously, I could use some help.

      Yes. That's about it Julie. I would go down and back for a lap while thinking of a name that starts with a letter. This lap is for Alfred. This lap is for Burt. This Lap is for Charles...etc, etc. For whatever reason, it's easier than counting numbers. I think it's because counting strokes (one two three breathe....one two three breathe) while counting laps at the same time is too much for my brain while I swim. Too much brainpower going into not drowning.
