Today was a good drill day in the pool! Yep, it was one of those dreadful kick days, more than 50% of 3000m. It started with 300m kick and other 300 m repeats. Then all the rest involved kicking in one form or another! It hurts like hell, but I find that after 3 weeks of focused kick drills that my legs are starting to work a bit! So, as much as it makes me anxious knowing I have them coming up, it does the truck for me! I discovered that of it hurts and if I try and figure out how I could avoid it, DO IT! those are the ones that are giving me the greatest gains! Never mind the sissy stuff that everyone does all the time, give me the hard drills and lots of them! I will say that the practices with kick in them do take a lot longer to complete. But I am not going to get to the start or the finish without putting in my time!
Today I took a minute to review one of the great products that I use . Over the winter, both skiing and training my skin takes a beating if I dont take care of it. In hte summer the wind, the water and the sun makes me dry up like mad! BUT, I found DERMATONE a while back, it is awesome. I wrote a testimonial a while back, and tonight I found it on the website. It is great to be there with many other athletes and outdoor enthusiasts when it is for using such a good product. The photo on the link is a ski trip in South America I was on a couple of summers ago, the sun there was wickedly damaging without something to protect. The skiing was also over the moon awesome! If you need good stuff while you are outside running, riding, swimming, try it out! DERMATONE IS SOUTH AMERICA
Well, tomorrow is a nice day and I have a bike test to pedal out, so, I hope you all had an awesome day and tomorrow is all the better!
