Today was officially the first day of my training plan, and it started with 2 sports. Who does that in a training plan, by the way? Swim and bike on day 1? What did I sign up for??
Anyway, this morning’s swim was pretty rough because about half a lap in I came to a sad realization – I have no idea what I’m doing in the water. I was instinctually holding my breath when my face hit the water instead of breathing out, so when I went up for air I would try to breathe out and in again really quickly. Nope. Not a good idea at all. But, by the end of my 25min swim I was starting to get the hang of it just a little more, so I’m hoping with practice I will be able to swim with a lot more confidence than I currently have.
For the bike part of things I just did a quick warm up, then a few hill repeats, and cooled down on the way back to my apartment. All in all it took about 45min, which was a bit less than my official plan told me but I did hills instead of flat so I’m going to count that as good. Day 1: check. Now on to days 2-140 or something outrageous like that.
