Yesterday, Pharmie and I loaded Henry into the car and headed to Lake Nokomis. I took a quick 25 minute dip in the lake. Nokomis is where I'll be racing the LTF Triathlon this weekend!
The first few minutes of my swim were spent dealing with my goggles. I need a new pair BAD! There should be a pair showing up today from amazon.com, and Pharmie said that she has a "back-up pair" in the closet upstairs. Once they got a little better (but were still slowly leaking), I had 20 minutes of solid swimming. That's not much, but that's plenty for a little "confidence boost" going into the 0.4 mile swim in the sprint this weekend.
While I was swimming, Pharmie took Henry for about a 3 mile walk around the lake:

Changing gears.... remember Abbe, my wife's pregnant running partner for the last 6 months? I posted lots of photos of them running the Grand Old Day 5K late in their pregnancy:
