Well, there's good news and not-so-good news. Isn't that the way it usually is?
The not-so-good news: Let's get that out of the way first.
I still do not have clearance to run. It's going to be at least a couple of more weeks. This is extremely frustrating for me.
At this point, I'm having to rethink my ability to race the Northern Columbia Tri in early August. I'm not sure how ready I'll be.
The good news:
I have clearance to bike, and have been taking advantage of the opportunity. I loaned my Coda to a friend, so I put the Fuji on the trainer. It's been great! It is a fairly different feel from the Coda, and I'm using leg muscles in a different way than I do with the Coda.
The waterproof case for the IPod has been a life saver! It works great, and it makes my pool running much more palatable. So, a couple of times a week, I've been hitting 25 minute pool running sessions.
My swim is improving. Last night, I hit 2:30/100 yard for a 600 yard swim. That's about 10 seconds/ 100 faster than my usual times. It's not even close to competitive- but really? Who am I kidding? I'm lucky to not need arm floaties!
So, in the now immortal words of Dorie: I'll "Just keep swimming"
