But it didn't work out the way I had planned. I drove out to a lake to do an open water swim, and had my bike on the bike rack, ready to go - after the swim. I didn't realize that the swim beach was fenced and locked and didn't open until 10:00 - so I rode my bike first. I don't think I will go back to this park for training. I didn't enjoy the bike ride much and when I was swimming the water was so choppy, it was nearly impossible to swim, so I cut the swim short after about 20 minutes.
Yesterday I took a little 2 mile run in the morning. I think I might start running short distances again. It is easy to do, and I can work on my speed. When I was training for the half, I never ran less than 3 miles... but I am not really training for a half right now.
I have not yet registered for the Tri for the Cure in August, I will register in July. My daughters both say they can't afford to register and I don't want to cough up $225. to register us all - but then again, I don't want to train alone for this tri. So, basically I am totally on the fence about the whole thing.
I am, however, registered for the Denver Marathon (half) in October, so I will need to start training for that in August. In the meantime, I am feeling rather lackluster. I thought the open water swim would excite me this morning, but I got so annoyed that I had to wait until 10 that I really didn't get all happy the way I usually do.
How's this for a bunch of rambling stuff? Just mulling it all over...
