time going fast

Well here it is Tuesday already, time rolling by quickly, as the schedule is going to start to get busy tomorrow (Wednesday) with registration, Iron Daughter picking up her bike that was transported down, a 45 min bike / 20 min run, and dinner with the Endurance Nation group…and a more or less ‘normal’ work schedule squeezed in…

Had another swim today in pristine conditions…45 minutes, practising ‘sighting’ more than anything else, and going out and back from the beach…some current today from left to right looking out at the ocean, so something that I need to be vigilant about.

Today my Heart Rate actually got up to 108 on the swim (from around 100 2 days ago) as I was feeling like a faster cadence was more comfortable…I don’t know that I was really travelling faster, but it still felt pretty efficient…and still a low Heart Rate, so all is good.

I’ll be posting my race plan in the next couple of days, once the weather forecast has enough detail to display hourly…I’ll use this to decide my final clothing and pace plan.

Overall, the race day weather still looks excellent…so all systems still GO 🙂

    It’s Wednesday, 11 AM your time. We’re about 2 hrs from P City Beach.

    It looks like the race is going to b chillier than planned. You probably like that. I don’t.

    I hope to go for a short swim early tomorrow AM, just to get a feel for it and see what the current is doing. What time did you swim yesterday? I thought the current would be right to left like last year.

    I’ve been eating all the way from Charleston. Yum yum. Including candy, which I normally don’t eat.

    I guess we’ll be there early enough to check in today. I don’t think we can get in our condo until 4.

    Even if chillier, the weather looks great. Thank Bhudda!!!!!!!!

      Anne, I swam later in the day…the current can run in either direction depending on the wind and tides, so a race-day check thing.

      The really good news is that right now…of course forecasts can change…but right now, the forecast for surf conditons are perfect…nice and flat.

      – there is a Thursday 7am swim behind the Boardwalk hotel (race course), so that’s probably a good one for you to join in…not sure how motivated I am for that, but my daughter is talking about making it happen
