When To Go With the Flow

This morning I slept in - until 6:30. For me that is sleeping in on a week day. I wasn't the first one up either. My brother-in-law's brother was up and making coffee.

Pyramids, Hills and Friends

Today I would have to say I spent both of my workouts going up and down. This morning I met my training partner to swim. Neither of us has completed a 3,000 meter swim since mid May. So this morning was the day to get a good, long endurance swim in. We started with a... Continue Reading →
