A brand new day

I got a DVD about swimming from my friend Beth - can't wait to watch it. And Triathlon Goddess Tina invited me to come to the pool with her and get some pointers on my stroke. She started teaching spinning and she's amazing! She's hoping to place in the top three in her age group at the Pawling Tri - I think she'll do it, too. (She modestly said last year she just hoped not to drown, but she can run at a 7 and something minute a mile, training for a marathon, etc - a real athlete (and an absolutely lookalike for one of the most beautiful actresses alive, Kate Winslet.)

I did Pilates this morning ant 25 minutes on the elliptical - light intensity. I've been quite sore and achy, in part from the chiropracter, in part because of still being sick. Tomorrow I rest, then Monday it's my first Swim/run day.

Will the swim/run be your first "combo"? How did you know you were ready?I haven't tried a combo yet. Mostly because I think I'm doing okay with my swimming and would be horrified to find that an added piece puts me over the edge. For now I'm going to start alternating days. Crossing my fingers!
