We’re in escrow in our (new) house and go into escrow tomorrow morning on our (old) house.

Between overbooking for the summer and then selling our house, triathlon training has suffered. I do also think not scheduling anything between Breath of Life the end of June and Malibu September 17th was not a wise move — I need the excitement of races to give my training a kick.

One good thing I’ve noticed about this past year and a half or so of training is the big improvement in my cardiac fitness. I know, duh, but it used to be that any pace faster than a walk zoomed my heartrate to its max. Now I actually have a ‘light activity’ pace, that I can maintain for awhile (couple miles at least without the walk breaks that used to be required). Not to say I don’t have runs during which breaks are required, but still, definite, measurable, objective improvement has occurred.
