Today was kind of long day and its still not done...this morning I was up at 5am like usual to be at the pool for 6am to coach another triathlete then I got in the pool after that for my swim. This mornings swim was actually the first time in almost a month I actually felt good in the water so hopefully its a sign for next week! About a 1000m warm up with some build 100's at the end. Then the main set was 5x300 at 4:00 but each 100 within the 300's was decending. My last 100's were around 1:05. After that I just did a 200 Fast (2:10) then cool down.
Then I spent about 4 hours at Laurentian because today was "Canada Games Day" for all the elementary school kids and they asked that I put on a run clinic so I had 4 groups with about 75kids in each group. Just talked a little about running and what it involves, then we did some ABC's on the track for a warm up. After that I took them on a little run on the trail and lets just say there was more walkers than runners...it's ok though cause I know there was kids from all different back grounds so I had to expect that. Then I did some stretching with them and then just a fun relay to finish off with.
So once I got out of there I came home and grabbed the bike for a little 1.5hour ride. Nothing special, just a few km's at pace getting ready for next week. Now I'm heading back to Laurentian where I have to spend the night working...lots of fun! I guess I can't complain too much though cause we just got like a $3.00 pay raise so that was pretty sweet. Anyways I'm out!
