Time for some running

Today was a big day in running for me, i broke out of 16:00 and into 15:54. I started this 5km a little different then most. Instead of going out hard and blowing up in the last km, I kept at one speed and found out that its better to start strong and finish strong. Today was the day i broke my running barrier!

More Swimming!

Tonight was a hard swim, the longest swim I've in a long time (3000m). I worked on keeping my stroke long and efficient. I started the first 1500 going under 18 strokes, then the second 1500 I was going under 22. I have another go at it but this time its going to be 6000!

So the race season is just a few months away and I feel so ready yet i'm not! My swimming is way better then it was last year and my cycling is also very good right now, but my run is somthing i need to start working on. The swimming is whats going to get me in the lead pack but its the run thats going to put me top 3. Where my running is right now I don't feel that I can run a 17:00 flat off the bike and thats where I would like to be by Augest 1st.

Its going to be a very competitive in the jr elite races! There are alot of guys posting awesome times so its going to be hard to stand out in this outstanding jr elite feild. Every one has improved so much!
