That's how I felt Sunday. I did four loops around Fermi lab, replicating in a small way what I'll experience during Circular Logic. It's been longer than I care to admit that I ran 15 miles, and damn did it feel good. I was tired, but nothing hurt. I don't know if I could've gone further.
As for the other two sports, I feel like I'm making progress. I did a swim practice last week with someone who actually knows what they're talking about and got a few pointers on things I can improve upon. I feel like it's worth the time and money to meet with a swim coach this spring before I get too far into training to see what I can fix now to potentially improve my swimming this summer. I also recognize there's only so much work I can do on my swim stroke. Eventually, I need to get out into open water and practice continuous swimming in race-like conditions. It's the different between treadmill runs and trails.
I'm spending more time on my bike, and my butt sure feels it. I've been looking into options for a full tune up for Suzie Slice and I think I'll opt for a Groupon buy. My goal is to be outside riding in April, get the bike all ready for the season and jump into distance rides by mid-May. There was a ride last year around that time that I missed out on because of a conflict, so I'd love to be able to tackle it this year.
Yet this week: Treadmill tempo run, one distance swim, one drill swim and one turbo trainer ride before the long run. Time to get it done!
