I am a triathlete, day 22/84

I have 13 days until my next Tri. I hope to get 3 open water swims in before then. If anyone is interested in meeting me at Mentor Headlands one evening after work, let me know! I am also planning on going to the GTC women’s only clinic on 6/21 so I figure we’ll get to swim open water there as well. I have nowhere to go but up! That’s kind of a nice thing. I just want to swim freestyle 50% of the next swim, as opposed to probably the 30% I did yesterday. I want to buy one of those personal floatation things you tie to your ankle for just in case situations. I think that I will probably hit mentor headlands every weekend and if no one wants to come, I will drag G with me, but he won’t be in the water with me, so for someone who is not a strong swimmer a little safety is probably in order.

I am very surprised by how sore I am today! I also ran a 6.5 trail run at North Chagrin on Sat with some of my favorite bloggers IronG, Salty and CG. Plus my non bloggy friends Katie and Sherri. Followed by a nice brunch at Yours Truly. But maybe I should have taken it a little easier the day before my first tri. So, I will swim next Sat, but nothing else before Summi.
