Monday-Long swim. 1500 meters (30 laps) and I wondered how many 250 meter chunks can I do in under 6 min? the answer is 3 here are my splits: 5:49, 5:54, 5:50, 6:01, 6:06, and 6:03. For a total of 35:46, ave pace 5:57. WOW. Some 3 min faster than the last time I went this distance. My speed work is helping. Not tired, no cramping (used to get toe and calf cramps with long swims), and faster. Nice.
Tuesday-Easy recovery run in 28:00, 3 miles. Here in Vegas a gorgeous morning. Rained the previous night and was about 75 degrees. The kind of run that makes you say...."oh yeah thats why I do this..."
Wednesday-Recovery swim. 750 meters slow and easy. 19:25. Pushed my bike to this am since I thought I would have more time. Got to bed waaaay to late and changed today to a rest day with travel.
Intervals (run) tomorrow Hawaiian style, and the rest of the week we will see where the islands take us!
In other news I am going to do the push-up challenge that Charleston mentioned. Ok off to the airport and fun had by all! Oh here is a quote:

Remain among the clumps of grass and do not elevate yourself.

Be ha`aha`a (humble),
which does not mean
timid, submissive, and spineless.
An inner self-confidence
which gives rise to quiet strength
is far more admirable than
