Training Week 9: Elisabeth Berson
More individual swimming @ Golds. Maybe it's the pool that throws me off, or maybe it's just being with other athletes that gears me up! Either way, I prefer to swim with others.
June 29: A whole lotta running! Beautiful Wednesday...
June 30: I really don't want to go to practice tonight; would rather be a coach potato. But, I rally and get there... and am so pleased I do! Somehow I manage to tear my swim cap in half (wild!) but a super-kind teammate loans me her orange cap from her Iron Girl last year. What a great bunch of people to be in community with! We learn all about seawee- er, swimming safely in lake and have a great time.
July 1: holy shin splint, bat man! It hurts to walk. I was overly eager in the water @ jamesville on Thursday night and am paying the price today. Again, I love the thrill of the start of a 'group swim start' but am hopeful I can maintain a pace once I'm group swimming on race day.
July 2: my right shin is starting to heal but it's still painful to walk a normal gait. no workout today again - bbq + rest time!
The remainder of the weekend consisted of walking + jogging!
