Running. There is nothing simpler. Today I took my lunch break and went for a 50 min run around the beautiful woods and park near my office. I ran 500 meter intervals and managed to carry a 5 min/km pace, which pleased me. Then I sucked wind for two minutes, recovered and did it again.
Swimming. There is nothing more complicated. I went to practice tonight and had moments of glide and many more moments of sink, off balance, torqued, snorting water. I forgot my swim cap so ate hair all night. There were two "open water" exercises in the line up tonight. A 12 min continuous swim, followed by 100 m laps, then a 10 min continuous swim. Hanging on the wall between laps covers most of my sins. I suffered through some wicked foot cramps but kept going. I even picked up a hair band from the bottom of the pool to tie my hair back. (gross I know).
Climbing. There is nothing more frightening. After swimming I booked a trip in August to summit the Grand Teton for me and my older son. Quads, the gal said, you'll need quads. Got 'em. And a wee bit of courage.
