good Pseudo Tri - Swim 1800 m 00:37 33:20 pace

Bit of a special day for me today. 13th is unlucky for most but hey, that's coz they weren't born on that day!

So this year marks my entry into the middle-aged demographic. No longer can I go on dodgy 18-34 Club Med-esque hols without the warning bells going. Not that I would want to anyway - perhaps that's mutually exclusive, I don't want to go and they don't want me, ha ha!

Anyway, my sis and family are over from Seattle - it'll be the first time in 3 years that we'll have the whole family together in one place! A BBQ at the folks place tomorrow :) I couldn't trust myself to go out and not get hammered on my b-day so I decided not to go out. What a sensible old man ;)

Instead I decided to mark the occasion by doing my own pseudo triathlon. It was after work and I couldn't do all the events back to back but I decided to do the distances for an olympic tri just to see how bad I am at the mo. What a stupid old man in mid-life crisis?

Haven't swum over a km straight in a while and this'll only be the 3rd swim in 2 months?

Okay, to make it easier to count I did 50 lengths in a 36m pool.
Splits on 10 lengths
7:17, 7:43, 7:28, 7:31, 7:17
Total 37:18. oh well :P daydreaming on the 2nd set!
