Where’d November go?!
After two months of swimbikerunning when I felt like it, the hum of scheduled training started again last month, and it feels good. I started working with Nick’s coach, Andy Schiesl, and have been slowly gearing back up and building a base. Early morning workouts are back, and even in the dark, it’s been nice to get up and break a sweat to start the day.
While not being able to run for six weeks kinda stinks, I’ve surprisingly started to enjoy the pool. The quiet yards tick by, and I feel like I’ve finally found a good rhythm and additional confidence in the water. I’ve even been practicing flip turns… they aren’t pretty (yet), and I only do them during my cool down since it’s faster to just turn at the wall during sets, but they’ll get there. Both Nick and I are on wait lists for masters, so crossing my fingers we get spots when new sessions start in January.
