As expected, Sunday turned out to be a rather hot day. When we left for church, it was already fairly warm and it was humid. Not a good sign. I had planned on doing a brick workout today (doing a bike ride followed by a run to simulate the triathlon), but because of the heat, did it backwards. As soon as we got home from church, I took off for a 6.2 mile run. I wanted to get that done before the afternoon really warmed up. I can tolerate heat much better on a bike because I can get a good breeze. When I got back from the run I was drenched with sweat. I really wanted to hop in the shower to cool off, but I knew if I did I would never get the bike ride in. So, I got my bike gear and took off on the bike. I ended up going 13.18 miles. I need to find a decent (and safe) place to get in some longer miles. It's not easy to get more than 15 in riding around the neighborhood. Anyway, I was glad I got them both in and didn't feel guilty last night as I sat down to watch tv for the evening.
Today was my swim day. I got in 2,000 meters which is my normal distance for a swim day. I think there is something going on with the pool, however, as after swimming last Wednesday and today I have developed a horrible cough. Last Wednesday it just lasted for the evening, so I hope that it will be gone tomorrow.
It's been raining here today and the forecast calls for rain most of the week. It looks like I may be getting on the stationary bike for some more bike miles this week. We'll see.
