2014 Race Calendar

While not set in stone, this is what I’m shooting for this year. Having this written down will put me more into a “training” mindset and less of an “exercise because I have to” mindset! Other thing I’ve learned: I need to get a new bike, ASAP! DONE: 1/19/14 Sunday: UM Icebreaker Swim Meet 1/26/14 … Continue reading

Weekly Update: 1/12/14 – 1/18/14

Total yards swam for this week: 10,430 yards. Odd numbers happen when you swim in a meter pool. Oh well! I’ve mentioned a couple times on my blog that I struggle with Friday morning Masters practices; I’m not a big fan of how the practices are structured. It’s nothing against the coach, but I enjoy … Continue reading

1.17.14 Workout of the Day

Friday morning, Dylan and I skipped a morning workout for an afternoon workout.

1.11.14 Snowshoeing

I’m supposed to be getting ready to go snowshoeing but my motivation has deteriorated. All my good plans are fouled by a ten pound ball of fur.

1.9.14 Daily Swim Workout

Skipped swimming yesterday – whoops! When I woke up, my shoulder was still giving me trouble, so I dipped out to let it “rest” before I went climbing after work. Planned on another “long” swim, using a workout from Kiefer (click here to link to it!). I was going to get in the pool by … Continue reading
