wow, amazing what a day off will do for energy! i went out for a long run and then a long swim and some more running last night. 25k running in total on the day, 19 of which were part of this run-swim-run medley. i had 4 very strong k in the pool tonight in 80 minutes even. my old benchmark pace. this is the first time i have managed to maintain a 100m/minute pace over a swim since my surgery. this was very exciting.. yet at the same time, a little discouraging given that in the 'old days' i was able to go faster.. oh well, 10-15% drop in speed is to be expected, and to still have enough energy to go out and run some more, was great!
