In response to the request for feedback/comments on the NTP to date, I'm having one of the best moments of my life training (and running into DCTriClub members at random bars/lounges). I have been keeping up with the monthly schedules (90%) on a weekly basis, though I just purchased a bike last weekend (goodbye spinning class!). The swimming part of the tri has been my focus thus far, and the swim clinic last month was a breathe of fresh air (for those in need, you don't want to miss the next one at CUA). That said, the heart rate monitoring "thing" is still somewhat of a mystery to me but I know help is available. Looking forward to the weeks ahead. Have a great weekend and weekend-workout!
