I finally slept well last night! January Trio season is over and I had a night all to myself in a wonderful B & B. I approached my workout at the Mapleton YMCA this morning feeling fresh and strong, and decided it would be a good day for a bike-swim brick.
I made use of my time on the exercise bike to do a little musical studying via YouTube on my iPhone. (don’t I sound like an advertisement!?) Francescatti’s 2nd mvt of Mozart violin concert No. 4 is gorgeous! My legs felt the work but not my lungs- a good sign that I’m used to being above sea level (and also, perhaps, that I’m not really working hard enough!). I went directly into the pool and did my usual half mile, thinking about form and upper body strength.
