I was initially disappointed with my result. Again, I don’t like racing if I’m not « really » ready. But, looking back on it, I realize that I did have a solid race. And, my gosh, it’s only JANUARY. Sometimes you have to keep things in perspective.
Training otherwise has been really really good. This is the most consistent I have ever trained. Just constantly tired and sore but always able to pull out a good session. No hiccups. Last week was slightly different from our usual routine and going back to the same sessions 2 weeks later really made our progress visible. I didn’t know how much you could improve in 2 weeks!!
The training has been going great for me, it’s nice to have no outside distractions and to be able to rest properly between workouts. I was training in Lahaina with the U of A swim team for my first two weeks here, doing lots of double swim days and some really good work. It took me a while to start feeling normal in the pool again after Christmas break, but the second week was much better and I definitely improved my swim a lot in those 10 days….
My running is coming along surprisingly well since I’ve been here. I was having some knee pain before I left, but the warm weather combined with lots of treatment has loosened me up lots and I’ve been getting some good workouts in, so I’m very happy!

I’ve just returned home from a 3 week training camp in Maui. At the beginning of January I was feeling pretty well recovered from surgery and ready to start doing some work, so this camp was just what I needed to get back on track. Aside from a bike crash at the end of week 1 I’m really happy with how things progressed.
This year, I am healthy and gaining some good fitness for the 2011 season. We are working hard here and the gains should give all of us a good start to the season… Swimming has been fantastic… I am building up my running from an injury but I am well again and progressing quickly.
? Please Simon, Tell us that you are all going to destroy them :-p
