Started off my week my favorite way....coaching a swim session at Ventura Cove 6am! I usually get up way early to make sure Mako gets in a solid run before I take off...but today still got up at 4:30
Ironman race anxiety already kicking in so eager to start the week. And took the pups out for a nice walk and chatted with my brother in Shanghai and tossed Mako in the car and off we went..
Beautiful morning and we were at VC by 5:45 and had some fun. Mako has been wary of the water and reluctant to go in our pool. I tossed the ball on the beach and each time a little further in the water...within 10 minutes he was a swimming fool. It was great.
Coaching session started and he promptly retrieved his ball and dropped it at my feet. I could coach, videotape and exercise him at the same time. Again...Mako does not understand what tapering for Ironman means. Week off to a great start....had a little body work done- IT Bands are not cooperating with me right now- but we have 6 days... all in good time.
Next was checking off the work to do list...I will be working while in LP but want to get ahead as much as possible. I usually write athletes schedules 1 week at a time for maximum monitoring but went ahead and did 2 weeks as I will be a tad busy on Sunday. Have list of clients to call and contracts to review for my HPN job and then it is on to packing, last minute shopping....
Okay I checked the weather- Sunday says
|Clear. High of 79F. Winds from the WSW at 5 to 10 mph.|
