    great swim test 1500 yd 00:38 44:09 pace

      OK then the staff is ignorant. I'll keep it at meters.

      Nice 1500! Frustrating if the staff doesn't even know the measurement for sure.

      Remember, its a gym with a pool, not a pool. Unlikely the staff even knows a meter vs. yards. They just hear people say swimming yards, or yardage and assume.

    alright tri bike 8.84 mi 00:44 12.1mph pace

    Just a little ride around my neighborhood. First ride on my tri bike. It's hard to get used to. I guess I'll start with little spurts like this and build up from there.

      We'll see, Before a B race a mini taper, before a C no taper. but your cycle calls for a bit of a pull back, you've built for 3 weeks now. Probably 7-8.

      It's so hard to battle that kind of heat - especially early in the season when you're just getting acclimated. I'm glad you had plenty of fluids. Now stop beating yourself up because you logged some serious miles today!
