|New swim cap!|
THE WORKOUT: Swim

Elle: The thing that made this swim special is my new, super fantastic swim cap from SwimOutlet.com.
Webb and I also each got sweet, new swim bags that will be really great when the weather gets nicer and we start biking to the pool. The swim itself was good, although my legs were a little tired from Coach Troy's workout the night before.

Webb: I felt pretty rotten during my warm-up, probably due to the run. I had this idea to add 2x100 IM into the warm-up instead of the buoy and kick sets. During the first 25 (fly) my left foot and calf began cramping badly. I doggie-paddled the final 5m to the end and massaged them out. I then proceeded with 25 backstroke and blammo! my right foot and calf cramped up. What followed was a lot of starting, stopping and stretching as I tried to resume a normal warm-up. The good news is as bad as the warm-up was, my main set was good. I swam my 500m :10 faster than my last outing earlier in the week. Sometimes you just have to keep at it.
Elle: FYI, when Webb says he's "moving on," that probably means he's going to be getting the brand, spanking new, super fly Garmin 910XT, the Garmin to rule all Garmins. Of course I'll still be sporting my crappy, wonky Garmin 110...
Webb: Indeed I am tempted. The 3-year shelf life of my 305 bothers me though. Stay tuned ...
