Soooo swimming is just not getting easier. I had high hopes of doing a workout, but I was swimming is a warm cloudy gym pool that had only two lanes and just felt nauseated. I tried to do 300, 200, 100 main set, and that turned in to 200, 100, 100. My 200 was 2:33 which made me feel a little better. So I ended up just scratching the rest of the swim and did a semi tri/brick.  And then you know because what else was I to do in the gym, might as well lift and do my abs. I did way to many lunges and squats and my legs were sore Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday bike ride was much better, the best I've felt on the bike since starting back riding again. The weather was great. I rode in my aerobars a bit and pushed a little in the bid ring. 6 weeks until race day.
