Yesterday I got a nice package full of all kinds of goodies from Salt Stick. It's really great to be sponsored by them this year and be part of their Team. Their Salt Capsules are by far the best out there providing your body with minimized muscle cramping, heat stress and fatigue due to unbalanced electrolyte blood levels.
Training has been going great! I've been having a great week so far and my legs are really feeling the burn. Yesterday I did a good swim with a main set of 20x100Pull on 1:20 holding under 1:10. Later on the day it was some core work then 1hour on the bike with 2x15 minutes at 90% and then a 10km run off the bike with 3x1km at 90%. The other 7km was just nice and easy and relaxed and I still came in under 40minutes for the 10km which included my warm up and cool down.
Today was a 2hour strength and core session in the gym at Boreal with Coach. Those stairs burned!! After that it was some stretching and I have an easy swim later today and that will be about it. Tomorrow I have another big day!
So today is the 4 year anniversary of my dad's death. It one way it seems so long ago but in another it seems like just yesterday I got the call from my sister that dad had been in an accident. A lot has happened in those 4 years and I still really miss him. From time to time I think about the guy who was driving the other car and caused the accident who is only 1 year older than me and what goes through his mind and how it's affected his life. I know my dad is very proud of me though for everything that I've done since then and that he watches over me all the time. Dad we love and miss you so very much.
