TTL: 3000 yards

water was quite warm, felt even warmer than normal. initially I thought the air was warmer, which makes the water feel warmer, but the air was around 40F.
one thing that was different...I wore a newish drag suit. I have a couple, and the older ones are getting rather thin, and I wonder if they actually give any drag. the newer one though feels quite different, and that could have been the factor.

last week I did 6 x 100 @ 1:15 and felt ok. today I went for 7 and felt horrible. the first 3 were ok, but by 4 I missed the interval, and finished about 6 sec behind when I finished. not only that, but I felt like I was going to get sick.

I changed my plans for the rest of the workout after that...did a bit of easy stuff, and I felt a bit better. almost gave up on doing a 100 IM today, but that wouldn't work. that actually didn't feel bad. I'm definitely much slower when I have to swim a whole 25 fly (a 50 is simply painful).

after getting home and booting up my work computer, I took Holly out for a little run--

Paseo trail, home to Los Arboles 2.39 mi 00:19 07:53 pace

Took Holly (the dog) out for another little run this morning along the Consolidated Canal. It was a bit colder than I expected (upper 30s), and I was just wearing a short-sleeve shirt. But the sun made it feel warmer, and I warmed up too. Felt pretty good, and again went faster than I expected. Splits: 8:06, 7:50, 7:36.
Distance: 2.39 mi
Time: 18:52
Avg Pace: 7:54 min/mi
Elevation Gain: 4 ft
Calories: 322 C
Avg Pace: 7:54 min/mi
Avg Moving Pace: 7:49 min/mi

I normally eat a protein bar after swimming, but given how I felt and that I was going to run, I passed on that. by the time I began, I was starving. but that went away...until we finished.
felt pretty decent, for a short run at least. I'm in no hurry right now to get back into distance running. I'm sure it will happen, eventually.

if I can, I'll get out for an hour or so ride this afternoon. otherwise, I go to spin class.
