Think Buoyancy

Tomorrows the day.
This week we have worked hard on swimming. in between trying to help Mike out a bit when he is in the mood for some observation and suggestions.
I have been swimming about a mile a day in 400 yd increments. Sometimes its the breast stroke, sometimes its my bastardized version of the TI freestyle, which I have adapted for my personal comfort level. 400s range from 8:50 to 10:55 and it doesn't seem to make a lot of difference if its free or breast time wise. So...... I plan to swim whatever feels good tomorrow, bike hard, and keep it together on the run. Oh yeah - and I plan to enjoy myself and have fun - sometimes I forget that part.

In other news, I found out my sister is the newest member of bloggerland. You can stop by and check her out here.

After a little big sister pressure, we have tentative plans to do the Danskin Womens triathlon next year. A very fun, ladies only sprint tri in Pewaukee. I know this is very unlike me, but I may have been a tad pushy suggesting it, but I am excited she is considering it........ maybe Tracy feels like making it a sister threesome?? Hmm?? You listening?? Bueller.......Bueller...... Bueller.....Bueller...... (seriously though - think about it..)

Be sure to send some buoyant thoughts Mike's way about 0800 tomorrow. My boy's freaking out a little, but I know he'll be just fine and probably kick my ass as usual.

I'm way beyond freaked out. Also you were tagged and Di will feel dissed if you don't do some tagging. I would not count on any kicking going on by me. If I complete the swim I may spend some time crying in the transition area waiting for Linda Richmond to give me a topic to discuss.

I'm IN Jenny! Seriously, I'll do the Triathalon with you ladies....I think that would be really fun!! Does it matter that the last time I trained or participated in a Triathalon was when I was 15? Or does it matter that I've never really done anything with a road bike? Can I do it on my MTN bike? Maybe skip the whole biking part all together...thee hee hee!!!

Next stop is to join the blogging family members on this thing!

I know you guys will do great today!! Can't wait to hear about it!

Love you! Tracy
