2000 meters in the pool completed…

2000 Meters in the pool completed in the early hours of this morning… Was able to Watch the sun rise through the windows surrounding the pool structure…

I managed sets of 150 meters up until my arms began to tire around lap 72, so more progress.

A quick 60 min spin before hand and training is completed for the day.

The morning’s are a great time to swim, appears to be senior citizen swim time, they are very accommodating (not lane hogs).

My arms are definitely tired, stomach screamed for coffee and food so I stuffed it with a Clif Bar, toast and peanut butter and washed it down with a coffee. Now I sit at my desk and pretend to work lol

    People who do triathlons fascinate me. I don’t know where you get the energy… But I guess it might just be natural progression. After running for so long you must want to do something else, or give it a bit of a kick, or something…

      That’s what got me into triathlons. I was a runner, but sick of ‘only’ running 5 days a week. Triathlon lets me train more, but with an end goal.

    Thus proving, yet again, the early bird gets the worm. Good job.

    Nice work! Makes getting up early totally worth it when you hit milestones like that.

    I need to find a pool nearby so I can start doing pool workouts on my cross train days! Nice job and cheers to you too!

    I miss the water! I’m not a triathlete, though. Just leisurely swims for me, when it’s warm/hot outside. Good job getting those workouts in–such a great start to the day!

    That’s awesome to get all of that done in the early morning! And WHOA, you also did all that on an empty stomach and no coffee?? That is incredible! Sounds like your training is going very well.

    Nicely done!! So impressive. Sun rise from the pool sounds amazing.

  12. Lisa says :

    I can’t imagine swimming well over a mile, plus biking for an hour, by the time the sun is rising. Good job!

    I keep up with whatever works: I wish I started my active life, including the photos (and believe me is not easy carrying around aNikon D5000, with a 200Zoom lens), and jogging, and 28 floors twice daily: I get inspiration from your website. Thank you!
