Four swims! Look at that. Amazing how when your long run is only 15k you have so much more free time. Swims were good this week - did a lot of it with the pull buoy to give my legs a break, plus to try and work on my position in the water. I'm not sure I made any progress there, but hey, I swam a bunch and felt good doing it, so that's a win.

*my beloved physiotherapist who used to fix my hips up all the time is no longer practicing. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Hopefully I like this guy!

(I have not yet gone maximum triathlon dork and worn both the watch and the new HRM in the pool. It is waterproof, and I'm curious how/if it will read in the pool, so maybe I'll test that out this week...)
Enough of that nonsense, what's up next week - week 4 of the build plan! My hamstring doesn't bother me at all swimming or cycling, so full steam ahead on those two. Running, we will see.
Tuesday: swim, TR (VO2 max)
Wednesday: run if physio says OK, swim
Thursday: TR (over unders); swim
Friday: run?; TR (60 min easy)
Saturday: Ride with 60 minutes tempo hopefully outside OMG OMG OMG; swim
This week I'm going to get some swim coaching from a very generous member of my tri club who has volunteered to do some stroke improvement sessions! Really excited to hear all the things I'm doing wrong. Heh. And fingers crossed the hamstring is a minor issue that clears up quickly.
