This was the first time since freshman year of college the sun has risen on me in the pool. It was kind of neat. It's been a long time. There's something about starting the day with a swim, or any workout really. It wakes you up, gets the blood flowing. I like it. Especially a morning swim.
It was good practice because the race starts at 6:30am and my swim today started at 5:45am. Early early. Think I'm going to do the same next Friday. That was I'll be tired early, go to bed early, starting an early to bed-early to rise weekend cycle that'll help me get up and be fresh for the race.
Today's swim was all right but unremarkable. I screwed up coming up with times so had to change that on the fly. My standards were way too fast for the pull 150s because I forgot they were 150s and I forgot it was a pull set. Oh well, got it fixed.
This is my last real long, tough swim before the race. Tomorrow will be a 90 minute ride, Sunday is a 45 run that'll be intervals like last week. After that I'll be inside a week to race day and will be working a very abbreviated taper.
