Saturday - BAM swim practice 1.5 hours. It was a solid swim practice where I met up with another pro Abi Bayley from the UK. The practice was primarily freestyle. I kept a harder race-pace effort throughout. After some food, I headed towards Brainard Lake. I told myself that no matter what, I am going for some high wattages (with a solid HR). It went awesome! I took off 8 minutes from my set timing point. My average heart-rate was 3 beats higher than last time though. I am hoping that the 3 beats isn't what took off the 8-minutes. Later, I headed to the gym for my gym routine I skipped on Friday.
Sunday - Rode my powercranks to the Scott Carpenter Pool for another BAM practice for 1hr25min. I kept the swim very easy - I was TIRED! Powercranks are tough - and were even tougher on the way home. Total time on the PC's: 1hr25. I had a mellow afternoon working on the computer and hanging out with Chris Velez (athlete/friend). He gave me the computer I am typing on and fixed my new email account! Thanks Chris! I later met up with David for a flop 25minutes.
Monday (thus far): I made myself sleep in for the first part of the BAM practice (lacking a lot of sleep). I swam the 2nd practice (1hr). Easy day for me... no riding.
