Indoor Mini
Sunday I orchestrated my own indoor mini-triathlon. 1500 m swim; 10 mi bike; 2 mi run. Just to get the feel of doing all the things at once. I think I'll survive an Olympic distance based on the test run. If Sunday had been T-day, I would've made it, but this was a good test to see how much more work I need on the bike.

On the other hand, my swimming is coming back together. Sunday I did a 400 IM straight. I lingered on the 3rd turn on the butterfly, and I took two 1-arm strokes into the 3rd turn, but otherwise I made it all straight. That in itself felt more impressive than the triathlon or even the half-marathon. I never thought I'd ever be able to make 4-lengths butterfly again.

I'm also noticing my times coming down on sets. Where I was doing my 200 FR on 4:00 and finishing in the 3:25-3:35 range, I'm now finishing at about 3:00-3:05 and repeating between 3:20 and 3:40. I also added some stroke work, and my 100 BK sets are about where my 100 FR sets were a couple weeks ago (in on 1:40-ish, repeating on 2:00). I won't be making Nationals anytime soon, but it is progress.
