But now it is August. I have decided that 2019 will be a much better year and if it is to be then I need to make it happen. So I plugged in the training plan from 2018 and am freelancing a bit with a half marathon running plan and am getting started. The first week went really well for one reason, and that was I got in open water. Somewhere along the line I have developed an aversion to the open water, open water panic is the technical term I guess, so I decided to address it head on. I went to Lake Michigan and jumped in and swam. The distance is not what is important, what is important is that I am in water that I am not comfortable in and I am swimming. I have decided to spend more time in the open water now while I can and sacrifice some bike time to make it happen. This week went well and I will be in the lake as much as I can until it freezes over.
I have committed to the Winter Run Series with my buddies Steve and Joe and I am looking very seriously at the Wisconsin Tri Series for 2019.
This weeks recap:
Swim: 1972 Yard
Run: 6.2 miles
Bike 21.12 miles.
