October 15

Let the off-season begin!
I am going for a mountain bike ride...

With the last triathlon of the season behind me I have to admit that I am jumping for joy at the prospects of going mountain biking, kayaking and using my new Freecross (look for more on that soon). On top of that I have identified my weakness and plan to spend a good block of training working on that and hitting the weights again. Yes, I am excited about the off-season and the changes in pace that it brings with it, including some downtime. Make sure to take a few weeks at some point now and embrace a little less structure, get more sleep, spend more time with family.

Happy off-season!

Infinity Bike Seat
Will this save me?

The fun of getting to go to Interbike is seeing all the new products that will be coming out soon. While I saw lots of things, this one really got my attention.

Is there such thing as a comfortable bike seat? One that you can ride aero in AND sit up to climb on? For those of you who don't have problems with comfort on the bike seat you are very lucky and for the rest of us this new Infinity Bike Seat seat might just be the answer. It isn't really on the market yet, but will be soon. I plan on riding it for Ironman Chattanooga so I will let you all know what I think after that!

*I did NOT ride this in the Ironman - there was just not enough time to get the seat height adjusted and even take it for a test ride and I was just not daring enough to have my 116 mile Ironman ride be the first ride on a new seat. I know better! Sometimes I have to take my own good advice!

 Remember to use your discount code - CO-MALONE -at checkout to take advantage of these wetsuit deals!    

Swim Team
Swim Team is practicing at the MTY from 5AM-7AM Tuesday and Thursday mornings now. They are in almost all the lanes on both ends of the pool. Hopefully you can find a lane or two in the middle of all of them.

Nov 14 & 15 - Swim meet at MTY
Nov 26-29 - Practice all day from 6AM-6PM

Masters Swimming
I want to swim faster...

Greenville Splash Website

Keep in mind that if you want to swimmer better and faster and be more motivated to get in the pool you need to use the resources that we have available to us.

Greenville Splash has more workouts geared for beginners. They are trying to get another beginner type workout at Caine Halter in the mornings. If they have more people demanding it...they can!

They also have a coach that works great with beginners. She also coaches Thursdays at GHS YMCA from noon to 1:00.
