First Swim

On Monday 9/25/06 I rode 25 miles to my brother-in-law's house and averaged 23 mph. I was a little tired but I was feeling pretty good about that until I realized that the final run on April 15 will be 1.2 miles longer than that ride. : 0

Rode 25 to work this morning and then hit the pool at LA Fitness. Definitely worried about my swimming abilities at this point.

Preconceived notions

Here are some thoughts that I'm writing just so that I can laugh at them in 6 months.

1. I can complete the bike ride today.
2. The swim is what has the potential to kill me. The run will only make me wish I was dead.
3. All I need to do is run enough miles to get a decent base then a ton of intervals to get strong enough to complete the 26.2 miles.
