Here's what I did:
30 minutes on the treadmill (HR in Zone 1)
30 minutes full body strength training
30 minutes swimming
I started using a nose clip during swimming and it works so great! My sinuses are not happy with all the water coming in and I also think it cause me to panic a bit. I still haven't mastered breathing correctly, but I feel much better about it with no water rushing up my nose. I have to figure the breathing thing out though. I can swim like 6 strokes before needing air but I know that's wrong because I should be getting air every 3 strokes. I don't know why, but I'd rather just hold my breath, roll over to my back for a good couple breaths of air and then roll back to free style. Maybe I could just do the back stroke for the whole triathlon?
Anyway, I'm doing ok in the eating department. Much better with water too. Oh and I finally stepped on the scale and scored a one pound loss!! Woot!
