Had the pool to myself tonight which I’m always a fan of. My swim was mainly slow with some sprinting peppered in. The sprints hurt today… my heart was beating out of my chest after the 50 fly. I did something in my freestyle sprint that has been missing from my swims so far, a monster breakout. I did some weight lifting last night and I guess I was still feeling strong. I need to try and work in a big breakout in my 50 free this weekend and see what happens. Honestly what I really need to do is lift more… we’ll see how that goes.

Anyways here’s tonight’s workout

Tomorrow I’m going to go and look at wetsuits so I can do some swimming not in the pool. I know “wetsuits are for pansies,” but the water is in the low 50′s here and I’d rather not get hypothermia while trying to be tough. I’m leaning towards a BlueSeventy suit but ultimately fit is going to dictate what I actually buy. According to the guy I talked to on the phone at the triathlon store, based on my build a Quintana Roo wetsuit might be more my speed. We’ll see. Saturday evening I’ll be making my way down to LA for Sunday’s CalTech Pentathlon.
