Saturday morning was the Multisport (aka triathlon) expo conveniently held on my college campus.
I haven’t mentioned this yet, but in April I will be flying to Alabama with my teammates to compete in Triathlon Collegiate Nationals.
I finally got a road bike, which I means I won’t have to do the race on a clunky mountain bike, score! The stars aligned and I finally found an amazing deal.
The impending nationals also means it’s time to increase training. I’m on Spring Break this week, and have solely been focussed on work and exercise. Today, for example, I swam in the morning, worked, walked 8 miles, and then swam again this evening.
As promised, here is some swimming lingo decoded!
longcourse= a 50 meter (aka Olympic distance) pool
shortcourse= 25 yard pool
SCM=shortcourse meters=25m pool
IM= individual medley=fly, back, breast, free
Medley Relay= back, breast, fly, free
25= 1 length
50= 2 lengths
etc. . .
hypoxic= limit breathing (hypoxic 3, for example, means breathe every third stroke)
pull= arms only, use a pull buoy
I think that’s it, but let me know if you don’t understand anything else!
Good training also involves good nutrition, so I’ve been attempting to consume well balanced meals including salad
and of course ice cream! They do say colorful foods are healthiest. . .
I hope everyone has a great week!
