1/10/12 - AM Swim Recovery + PM Hike

Swim 50m @90%
Rest 1 min
Rest 3 min

Done. 7:30 AM fasted. Swimming felt good this morning. Hit :44 for the first 3 then had to back it off. Never swam that fast.

Set my alarm for 6:30 PM and woke up late. But, I did go to sleep at 9:30 PM last night. Slept awesome! Feeling great today. Body feels good. I guess that happens after 9.5 hours of sleep. Dinner was a big NY strip, mashed sweet potatoes with butter and cinnamon, some quinoa with cinnamon, and some sauteed spinach. 

Practiced some pistols and rope climbs last night. For not doing pistols in 6 months they felt pretty good. I was trying them in my weightlifting shoes and regardless of which ones I was wearing my knees hurt. Switched to my flats and they felt as good. Strange. I guess I'll go with those for Event 3 since I'm comfortable climbing in them.

60 min hike unloaded

Done. This felt great. No music. Just walked. It stopped raining long enough for me to get this done. It was pretty warm out too so no jacket or long pants. Went step by step through the entire weekend in my head. Helped clear up some of the unknown areas. I feel ready.
