The Week That Was

Tuesday: 0.5hr. run (zone 2)
Wednesday: 1.0hr. run (zone 2/3)
Thursday: 0.5hr. run (zone 2)
Saturday: 1.0hr. treadmill run (zone 1/2)
Sunday: 1.75hr. treadmill run (zone 1/2)

Inflammation issues seem to be subsiding and heat acclimation has come into effect. Sunday's treadmill run was primarily zone 1; in the last 45 minutes I was bouncing in and out of the bottom of zone 2. I expect that I'll complete the drive to a 2 hour long run next weekend, and then have a recovery week.

Saturday afternoon I spectated at the annual Flowers Sea Swim. It's a big deal - large participation locally, increasing participation internationally, generous sponsorship and prizes, significant donation of event fees to local charity, and high ranking amongst open water swimming events world-wide. Thanks to Mr. Frank Flowers and his team of sponsors and volunteers for staging a wonderful event. Congratulations to Jenny, who put in a solid time as one of this year's 748 finishers!

The Flowers Sea Swim is a big deal indeed! It was fun to follow along a little bit at home on CAYROCK.

Heat acclimation = good! (We will endeavour to do same here this week.)

Hooray for heat acclimation!

And to Jenny for her swim event. Very cool to be surrounded by greatness.
