a great work out today. it started with a fast 3k run over to the pool, and then a slow endurance swim of 6k in 120 minutes. the energy levels were a little low and the energy stores were clearly low, but it was nice to get in a good test. for me to tough out a swim of that magnitude just 6 days removed from my 3rd marathon in 8 days, is an amazing statement of my fitness levels. the ankle did not give me any problems throughout the day so that was another nice bonus.
i'm really feeling confident that another careful taper week will have me showing up in Mississauga in excellent shape and fully able to give it a strong go at a BQ time of 3.45.59. i guess time will tell, no pun intended.. lol
