Tri-Blogger Swim Challenge...


I think this photo of Kainoa's run technique is far more exciting than my report on my Tri-Blogger swim challenge...

My challenge was 20x200. That is not too bad. The send offs: 10x200@3:00, 5x200@2:50, and 5x200@2:40 again, not too bad...

BUT trying to swim after that darn race was TOO bad. Thankfully my arms were fresh so I could pull my butt through the water... BUT my legs said, "sorry". I pretty much dangled my legs behind me and kicked only for the purpose of balancing myself.

No big deal- I didn't reach some amazing split or have a super swim session... I just swam and swam and swam... Next up, Elaine and Jen H. Have fun girls, I hope your "challenge" is far more exciting and fun!

too cute of a pic! we'll have to get lucie and kainoa together to have some "races"...i can usually keep her entertained for about 5 min. while i make dinner if i keep saying "on your mark, get set, go!" and she sprints back and forth across the room.

Don't you love how you can inspire them!! Plus... running just for the simple purpose of having so much energy you need to run and NOT walk... you just can't beat it!!

Great job on finishing your swim challenge!

Hey thats good form.. Nice forward lean, landing on the front of the foot, directly under the center of gravity.. Kainoa's a natural! haha..

Love Kainoa's lean - briallian. And besides - legs are overrated, right? :)

You rocked it anyway!

He's such a cutie! NO Swedish Fish for K-boy! I'm a baaad influence and not a good role model especially being a dental hygienist! Woops! You have green (drool) grass. :-(

Bree - solid swim set. Legs or no legs - that is a tough set. You are inspiring me to redefine my swimming.

He's got the run down and I'm sure he has his momma's swimming skills. When are you going to put him on a bike??? :) Too cute! Keep up the hard training. Look foward to many more great results and a lot of enjoyable races!

Dang, you are one fast swimmer! Great job. And without kicking? I bow at your feet.

I could use a running lesson from Kainoa. He looks fast.
