Day 4: Calm before the storm..

Today was a leg rest day... Leg resting from what?? Well not much has been going on this week apart from settling in.

Tomorrow is a different story.  Back to today.  Was a nice and relaxing day, so many different channels on TV to keep me occupied.  Apart form that I did find time to get some training in...

Another double swim day, the morning a continual 20min swim in the ocean and this afternoon a solid 4.5k in the pool consisting of:

1k w/up

5 x 200m with paddles/ buoy on the 3min cycle
100m easy
10 x 100m with paddles/buoy on the 1min 40sec cycle
100m easy
20 x 50m with paddles/buoy on the 50sec cycle
300m c/d

As you can imagine my arms are pretty sore after 3k worth of paddle work, however it is all part of the overall plan.

Tomorrow, the training really begins.  4hrs on the TT, with a few efforts, then a solid 30min run off the bike.  Nothing to major, throw a swim either side of this and it becomes a pretty hectic day.  One that I am looking forward to and can't wait to start.

This will mean an early night for me to get a good nights sleep after the fire alarm went off 3 times during last night.  Nothing like an interrupted sleep.

The weather was very overcast today, which meant muggy due to the humidity, hoping to get some Hot sun & strong winds.  The locals are saying that this will be the forecast for race day.  Might as well get used to it.

I want to thank everyone who has been sending me "well wishes".  I do appreciate them and keep them flowing!!

For Now...
