Today I swam for 45 minutes. It is getting much easier to swim now. I'm trying to work on my form, but it is so hard by myself. I'm wondering if I need a coach. I don't want to spend any money on that, so I guess I will just have to muddle through.
I rode for 30 minutes today, did 8 miles. Not too bad. After the 1st of the year, I am going to look around for an appropriate road bike. I'm hoping I can purchase a decent bike, but again, I do NOT want to spend a lot of money.
The indoor triathlon is looming closer, and I don't feel like I am making any headway. Although I did run 3 miles in 32 minutes yesterday, so that is good. I really need to organize my workouts, so that I incorporate more speed training into swimming and running. Right now, I'm just winging the workouts. I need to put more thought an preparation into this if I want to improve.
Of course, I am currently in rehearsals for Barefoot In The Park. I decided to say yes to an assistant stage manager role for the theatre. I'm preoccupied with the play, maintaining the house, Christmas shopping, and keeping a seven year old on track. So it should be no surprise that I'm not really organized with my training. Whim training is what I call my style. Time will tell if this pays off. At least the Sprint Tri is not until August.
