I am now training for my second half-ironman race. The race is in Boulder this time in August, 2007. I finished the Florida Half-Ironman in May, 2007. Wish me luck!

Today was a good day for swimming. I was hoping for a little faster time on my 1500m swim, but I can't complain. I have a very long warm up. Much longer than what I am used to. Today was my max for Total swim. This is the most I have swam in one day. My cool downs were fast. I was so amazed how my times were. I was supposed to swim each 50 slower, but I couldn't.

40 minutes very easy run, RPE 3.
I ran a total of 41:37. I ran about 4.5 miles. The pace was slow. I averaged 8:55-9:05 per mile. I really felt today's swim during my run. My muscles were tight and extremely sore. I got a pretty goo d strecth before the run. Since I ran on the treadmill, the run seemed that time stood still. Well, at least it is over.
