Saturday riding…

Had a nice morning ride this morning. The brick didn’t happen because it was just to hot to run afterwards. Better safe than sorry in these extreme temperatures. 

Happy Saturday!


Race Recap: Smithpoint Triathlon – August 6, 2016

Not really a full recap, but more of a hey I’m still alive!!

This was my first tri of the season. It was a 500m swim, 9.7 mile bike, & 2.9 mile run. My stats were more along the lines of 768m swim, 9.64 mile bike, & 2.85 mile run. Mostly everyone I chatted with over-swam the swim. I don’t know if the swim was not marked correctly, or if we just all swim badly, but to swim 250m additional was a bit of a mess! I felt pretty good on the bike. It was an out and back course. Going out I averaged 15.8mph…I was really riding miss daisy. On the way back I averaged 18.7mph, but was riding 20mph at least half the time. The bike was nice! The run was your basic run, nothing to write home about. Overall I felt pretty good during this race, and it was nice to get back into the game leading up to Ironman AC 70.3 which is nearly a month away!

Until next time….
