Friday with Mr. Harris

I am starting to find out that this swim technique stuff never ends. There is always something that could use some work. This morning, after I work, I met up with my Homeboy Mr. Harris at the fascinating Baylor Tom Landry Center. We met up with Mike Dawdy, who is an ex-pro soccer player, a wicked fast triathlete in all 3 disciplines, and the head trainer. Even though I had improved A LOT since the swim clinic in Fort Worth there is still a few things I need to work on. Mr. Harris learned a lot as well. I felt bad for him after he swam a good 100m then right when he finished MIke said "Give me another 50". I was like crap, I hope I don't have to do that. After the ride we did an easy cruise on our road bikes around White Rock Lake. My jersey zipper had came off probably sometime in the washer and I didn't realize it until time to put it on, so I had to ride in a cotton t shirt, I was fine with that it was just an easy ride and I hardly broke a sweat. We also had a drafter come along and sit behind us for awhile on like mongoose mountian bike. I wanted to drop him and put the hammer down, but I could hear Coach Brent's voice in my head and decided that would have been a bad idea. After our ride we engaged in some fine BBQ that I ate too much off which carried me for several hours afterwards.

This Monday I'll be in the invitational wave at the Cap Tex Triathlon down in Austin set to go at 7:00 A.M. The training has been going real well lately with some good workouts last week. This week has been more of a recovery week in preps for Cap Tex. Thanks to everyone who has supported me, God Bless Ya!
