Training at Cochiti..

went really well yesterday. We met up with Geek Girl, Lisa Try-ing, Mark T. and of course hubby was with me. GG, Mark & I swam the 2.2 mile distance across the lake and back. Longest distance at one time since IMFL 3 years ago. It felt great!! I feel really good when i swim because it is my best sport in the the tri-so far..The water was calm, there was a few clouds, not hot. Like the perfect day. Like the one you wish for at Ironman. Mark asked me what i was training for and I said well nothing long in particular, I just like to swim these days..Makes me feel strong! Hartley and Lisa did about a mile and did great also..

Our friends are in from California but we will sneak away for a run today and long bike tomorrow. My asthma/allergies are acting up-thank goodness for drugs! And friends who understand our compulsions..

You guys did great!

I'm glad Hartley was there, the shorter distance that we did was good for me.

I like long swims too and its always amazing to me that no matter how long in between the long swims, I still feel I do pretty good. Better than on a bike or run!
