Just before getting in I had to get a photo of our gorgeous lake that we are so lucky to train and race in. It was so still this morning. Not a single ripple to be seen and in certain sections it actually looked as though it were a mirror. So as I started off swimming I kept telling myself to relax and to stop fighting the wetsuit yet again. This time it worked - I was able to keep a steady stroke and tag onto the back of Leigh. I also tried really hard to sight ever 6 strokes. It actually was a really good number of strokes to sight at - I'm all about keeping it even. Not sure what I swam the 2km in but I finished it feeling really good about myself. Next week is our last Open Water Swim before Port but at this point I think I am okay with doing it. And thank goodness for that - 2 nights ago I had a nightmare that I struggled to swim it at Port and I woke up bawling my eyes out.
After the swim I was meant to get straight out and do a 50min run but silly me forgot my runners - I was half tempted to run it barefoot but I didn't. I went home and went back to the lakes to do my run - I didn't want to run it at home. I met up with Susan and after one lap of 5km my left hip started to hurt so I decided it best to not push it. I have a huge weekend ahead anyway so didn't want to risk having to miss it.
When I came home I was absolutely starving so made myself the yummiest wrap. Actually I ate 2 of them - one just wasn't enough. Tuna, ricotta cheese, salad, cucumber, mushroom, sweet mustard pickle wrapped in Sundried tomato and basil wrap.DELICIOUS.
Anyone want one?
