Improvement

Just had another session in the swimming pool today, while doing the drill, I timed myself for a kick only lap with my best effort, it was 1min30 sec. Then I timed myself for a crawl only lap with the kickboard between my legs, it was 1min. "Surely if I put the two together I must beat 49 secs!" I said to myself. So I threw the kickboard a side and dived into a full throttle lap. I hit the other side of the pool in 47 secs. That is another personal record!

Of course, it is not a sprint but an endurance event ahead of me, so tomorrow, I will do a 3km open water swim, got my friends Alain and Alice kayaking next to me for protection.

I'm just doing the Olympic Distance Tri next month, and then the Chicago marathon in October. That would wrap up all my races until next summer

Then why do you only do a half marathon in Lake Placid next year if you would have alrady run a marathon in Chicago?

I mean a half ironman triathlon next year not half marathon.
