Out of the concrete box...

...and into the clear cold water! First ocean swim of the season at Veteran's Park in Redondo Beach, just two short 1/4 mile repeats in clear green (in a nice way) 60 degree water. And dolphins! though they stayed away from us.

I've been posting my workouts on and have thus been neglecting this blog.

Wildflower in two weeks! I feel both better prepared than last year but maybe not as prepared as I'd like to be. Since I've had my coach I've been much better about getting some cycling time in, going for lunch time rides etc. I'm thinner than last year and more muscular, and hills seem easier than before. I'm hoping to cut a chunk of time off my last year's time.

I had to skip the duathlon -- we're doing our own frontyard landscaping and had gotten our plant, mulch, rock, gravel and decomposed granite deliveries and had to get everything done that weekend (because of the huge piles of materials and the plants needed to be put in the ground) (we were leaving on Spring Break the following Friday). Anyway, the six or so hours we would've spent driving to/from the duathlon as well as doing it was time we couldn't spare.
