I mentioned in my August Recap that I had registered for a Masters Swim Club. I’m super excited to start training with the Aurora Selkies, and a few of my running-turned-tri friends have joined as well. We officially start at the end of the month and I can’t wait to have coached practices and actual swim workouts. The season runs September to June and I can attend as many practices as my schedule allows for the flat (reasonable) team rate. There are scheduled swims Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights, Saturday morning and Sunday evening that work for me, so I should have no problem fitting in a few quality swims each week.
Thanks for your comments on yesterday’s bike post. And YES, you can rest assured that I will be keeping my hybrid for recreational riding and commuting. I love this bike!

sorry for the blur
Speaking of commuting, I found myself riding home into a bitter headwind yesterday and it started to rain just as I left the office. I wasn’t feeling it and took advantage of the option to bail at Mom’s house half way home. 18K (11.1mi) was enough for me in those icky conditions, after 29K (18mi) that morning.
Tonight we made a purchase that probably should have been made a long time ago… we finally own a treadmill.
It’s the PaceMaster Premiere and will be delivered on Saturday! It is going to be awesome having this beauty downstairs this winter; no more early morning drives to the gym required. It’s going to be perfect for brick training sessions as well. We are cancelling our memberships (~$100/month) which helped justify the cost, and the convenience is going to be so worth it! Hopefully we can share…
