Here’s this week’s activity log:
Quintana Roo Ultrafull Triathlon Wetsuit
Bought the wetsuit out on Craig’s List and am trying it out this week.
MON – Got out the wet suit and swam over at the cabana club pool. The first comments from people were, “Oh, I think the pool’s warm enough, you don’t need that.” FUNNY!
The suit fits me decent, but it seems like it could be a little longer and a little less tight in the shoulders. I think my big butt takes some of length out of it.
When I was done with the swim, ran 3 miles.
TUE – Went back to the pool in just my tri-shorts and swam 1/2 mile. My stroke is still horrible and I can’t sustain a crawl for more than 2 or 3 laps. My side stroke and breast stroke are terrific, however. :> Guess I’ll be alternating during my swim.
WED – 4 mile run. Time was just over 38 minutes.
THU – nada
FRI – Ran without any music. Instead I used a 5/1 (run/walk) setting on my watch to see how I’d do. Ended up running a 37:30 for 4 miles. Not a bad time for me.
SAT – Went for a long ride today – out to the top of Calaveras and back – a little less than 50 miles. Felt very good, but was overall tired at the end. Flatted on one of the decents and had to use my new Innovations Ultraflate Plus CO2 pump for the first time. I only had one cartridge, but it worked just great:
