Gimme Data

I have been reading Triathlon Training Blog and various other sites and see how much these athletes depend on data in order to improve performance.  I feel like I am way  too early for most of the data to be useful.  I am still at a point where I have little technique, and even less endurance.  However, I think that it will be fun later to be able to look at early data.  That way when I get down about how little progress I’m making I can look back and see how far I’ve come.  And they say I’m not proactive!

Now I need to figure out what data is the most important so that I can make sure to track that.  What?  I’m a computer programming geek, what do you expect?

Oh, and my Pose Running book should be arriving today!  Yay!


Learning to swim.

One of the great things about the triathlon training program at the YMCA is that they have a beginner’s swim clinic.  That way, hopefully, I can get some help on swimming.  My hope is that I get comfortable enough that I can swim in the deep lap pool at the Y instead of the shallow, but more crowded general purpose pool.  I can’t help but see images of myself getting dragged out of the pool by a life guard, now that would be embarrassing.

So here is my plan, I have a book called Swimming Made Easy.   It is a book with drills using the Total Immersion method of swimming.  I have had it for about 2 years, and have done a few drills, but never dedicated enough time to get to anything that even looked like swimming.  I plan on getting some tips from the swim instructor for the basics, and then running through the TI drills to get more proficient.  That’s the plan anyway.  The first swim clinic is on December 15th, I’m excited.
