Last week

i) Swimming
- aim for 30 min a day but I think my body can handle more than that

ii) core exercise (http://d3multisport.com/articles/core1.html)
- 10 min a day. They hurt. :)

iii) Adding a run in the morning
- I use to drop my dad to the GO Station. Now I told him to drive down himself. I will jog down (35 min). Pick up the car and drive to work.

iv) Got this:

MEC Cyclone Tights (Men's)

I also want to get this:

MEC Commuter Soft Shell Jacket (Men's)
It is a soft shell at MEC. I tried it on. It felt sooo good. I put it down after telling myself that I got a winter jacket to train in already.

Slowly building that base. Though last week, I didn't do too much. My body wants to do more. I want to do more. The goal is still to do something everyday. Nice and steady.

Three years into endurance sports and I feel like a newbie all over again. There is so much to learn and so much area to grow.

Building a base for what??? Did I miss something? Are you planning to do an Ironman next year?

Great jacket - you need two winter training jackets so you have a spare in case you are behind on laundry.

Feeling like a newbie is good fun, it keeps you coming back. Liek Shirley said, what's next (apart from Worlds)?
