I've been really getting into the the track workouts lately. Lots of 400's and 800's - but does anyone else feel 'un-natural' running those short distances? When I run on the road - it feels so natural. Everything just flows. But on the track I feel like a freaking robot. Coach is promising I'm hitting the times spot on and my form is great - but still it feels funny. Thankfully he gave me the most amazing thing ever called 'the foam roller' or as I like to call it 'the man of my dreams'. I asked Mr. Foam Roller to merry me last night. But he just looked at me with a blank stare :)
We are still rocking out the open water swims. I feel so blessed to be able to drive a few minutes down the road and have a beach right there just waiting for me to jump in. Yesterday the surf was very rough, but we still got in a pretty stellar swim. Even a few spring breakers tried to jump in with us. Ha! Crazies.
Talking about cold water...I found this GREAT bag to store my wetsuit, both wet and dry:
(I know, the photos don't do much justice)
It's great because it holds not only my wetsuit - but my goggles, cap, towel, etc. I found it at a surf shop - but it's by a company calls SCS. Check it out of you are looking for a new 'non messy' wetsuit bag.
Best. Coffee. Maker. Ever.
And they are on sale at Target right now!
Also, a container of this seemed to fall into my cart the other day:
First race of the season is a week from today!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
