Nice job to you all! Some of you PR'ed. Some of you ran new distances. And some of you knocked out some super solid training.
As for me, this is a very non-racing season; I am just making up for it by doing the longest race of them all. :)
Which means that I am getting in a lot more solid training. Let's be honest. Racing is cool, but man oh man depending on the type of race it can really eat into the type of training that makes you fitter. This is why I am only doing 3 tri's this season.
I was able to knock out a 4.19/57.79/4.48 mile duathlon on Saturday then hit up another 2.5 hours on the bike on Sunday. Speaking of Sunday, it was kind of a gross day. It didn't really rain on me, its just the roads were so wet that it knocked down all of the crap off of the trees, which then got on me and my shiny white bike.
|Red, White, And Blue America Baby!|
|Fortunately a hose can clean the crap off|
|Wow! Look at the chin wrinkles!...and the retro cap....|
Tomorrow could wind up being my longest run EVAR with 2:15:00 on the docket. Supposed to rain which is a good thing considering most of my best runs have been in the rain.
Then it is basically full on recovery mode for this weekend. What is this weekend you ask? LAKE PLACID!!!! No no no, not the race, but my first training camp. This could be a record breaking week! Wish me luck!
