bike stuff & swim clinic

been a little sick the last few days. nothing serious just a little cold.

bike - warmup & 20 minute Time Trial on trainer. For some reason my Garmin did record any distance. Ill have to check into that.

overhead press - 45x5, 50x5, 55x5, 60x3 failed on 4th rep w/2 attempts, 55x4, 55x5, 60x3, 55x3, 45x5

went to a stroke clinic today to have my swim looked at. It was helpful. Did drills, swam 10 x 50s and a 500 at the end. Overall was told my body position in the water is good, my kick is good, my catch is good but Im not using the power that I have in my pull and that is what we are going to work on next time. This time we mostly worked on balance in the water. I had to work on it in conjuction with my breathe. My balance is  good in the water until I breathe. I lift my head too much instead of rolling so I worked on that.

Im consider entering a cyclocross race with my road bike. Ill need to buy some cyclocross tires but it looks like fun. My only concern with it is i don't want to hurt my injured foot trying to run my bike on tough parts of the course.
