Swimming 31:40 [1] 0.91 mi (34:47 / mi)

4 x 400 with 1 minute rest between - 820 750 750 740

Pool (cool down swim) 5:30 [1] 0.14 mi (39:20 / mi)

Put this as pool so that I can keep my swim count separate...


Plan for week is to swim today and tomorrow, and bike on Wednesday and Thursday. Then, it is off to Georgia on Friday for all four events - Sprint, two Classic, and the return to the Extreme-O!

The last year I was fit and feeling competitive was in 2011, when I was ranked on Green and did 15 races. I was likely feeling competitive in 2012 as well, but I was only fit enough for F-Yellow, where I enjoyed trying to beat the kids and other infirm ladies.

I come into 2017 feeling back on my feet, literally, and, well, I am just so excited for this coming weekend, especially after feeling like I was getting around pretty well this past weekend.

My feet feel good enough today, and luckily when I cracked my knee against the tree on Saturday night, the area bruised is above the knee cap. Not that it didn't hurt, but I think it would have been worse if it was 1 inch lower.

A rankings recap from the OUSA rankings site:
2010 - Not ranked - ran 4 random races
2011 - Ranked on Green with 15 races, including 3 at West Point
2012 - Ranked on Yellow with 9 races, no WP
2013 - Ranked on Brown with 4 races, all at WP
2014 - 0 ranked races
2015 - 2 ranked races, both at WP
2016 - Ranked on Brown with 3 races at WP and one race credit; also 2 Orange races

[Roger likes New York City, and combining the trip with the West Point event makes the NYC part slightly more palatable. I will be in New Zealand during WP this year.]
