Last week was race week, but of a very different kind for me. I am 46 years old and participated in my first EVER swim meet on Saturday! Wow! It was fun, challenging, and something I am excited to do again!

Swim highlights: 7650 yards (+ warm up and cool down yards not accounted for at swim meet)
The swim meet was definitely my swim highlight for the week. I swam the 200 yard free, 500 yard free, 50 backstroke (as part of the 200 medley relay), 100 IM, and 1650 yard (1 mile) free.
Bike highlights: 18.6 miles
Tuesday was my only ride of the week. I was told to save my legs for kicking on Saturday’s swim meet, but I don’t kick much even with rested legs. 😜
Run fun: 2.07 miles
I ran short off the bike on Tuesday as my only run for the week…again conserving my legs for the swim meet. I didn’t get any pics of my solo run last week.
