I ran my favorite non-technical trail today. 50F calm conditions.
Pretty standard for me. There was a guy ahead of me on the trail so passing him help me up my pace on mile 10. I always run better pacing off other runners. I never pass Tyrone Harris.

10. 7:09 Oh goody somebody to pass
Had a pretty good week and my swimming continues to improve. Still not anywhere near where I need to be. I am a real drowner. Coach and I have discussed it and it seems my problem is mental. I had too little exposure to swimming as a child. Now at 49, I have to over come an extreme anxiousness about the water. I have progressed to a less frantic swimming style, but I still tire pretty quickly. A friend told me early on to think jog instead of run when it comes to swimming. He is right. Thank you Mr. Fagerman.
I should push myself more. To quote Lance Armstrong (pain is temporary… quitting is forever) quitting maybe forever and so is drowning.
It will rain tomorrow and I will be back on the infernal stationary bike.
