I'm a few months behind, but I finally got my CompuTrainer hooked up and am ready for some hardcore wintertime indoor training. Despite its benefits, I am not the biggest fan of indoor training, and try to ride only outside during the warmer months. But in Dec / Jan we just have too many sub-freezing days in Dallas.
So I did something today I haven't done in over 20 years - I swam in a swim meet. I swam and raced throughout high school, played water polo in college and have been swimming with DAM and the Plano Wetcats for about the past 10 years, but have resisted going back to racing. I did it today though- even though it was just the fun-centric DAM Holiday Relays event. I swam 8 events in 90 minutes.
