Day #14, Week #2: 100k ride

El Mirador de la Palmera at Daya Vieja
GOOD OPEN water swim session this morning. I used the pull buoy and paddles with the aim of taking the legs out of the workout, partly to avoid the recent muscle twinge in my right hip. I noticed how my breathing was much improved and my heart rate was lower. This makes me think that I am kicking my legs too hard during my normal stroke, which would explain why I needed to stop every 50 metres to catch my breath during my previous swim session in the pool.

After breakfast., out on the bike for a 100k endurance ride, my longest to date. Took in some sites at Playa Lisa in Santa Pola and the spiraling lookout tower in Daya Vieja.
