3/8mi swim/13mi bike/5k run - First time back in the last 3 years! I checked my bike in Friday night as did Jessica, that was a fail. A HUGE storm came within 20 minutes, blew the racks over and subjected my well-cared for bike to "out back behind the shed" type of treatment. I knew … Continue reading Loggerhead Triathlon 2015
I really appreciated the Saturday vs Sunday race date and the WPB proximity to home. On Friday night I dropped my bike off and with Sal & Suzanne's help, wrapped it up nicely to ward off the rain. We also did Char and Rick Luise's bike. I parked at Datura lot for the $5 all … Continue reading Motivation Man Olympic tri
1/4mi/10 mi./3 mi. A good outing on a wet course. My swim was a mess of bumping into people and learning the lesson that being better than most of the people will help me avoid that in the future. This should have been much easier to do in a 1/4 mi straight line! Biking … Continue reading Multirace Tradewinds Tri
29 mi ride/4 mi run - Walter and I left Loggerhead park at 12:40pm It was a great afternoon to ride, mid 70s and sunny. I used generous amounts of sunscreen, brought one Clif Bar and one water bottle. The breeze was from the Northeast and wasn't a big deal in either direction, but it felt … Continue reading Mini brick workout
8mi. I watched John Reback zoom past me going a a 6 min mile pace, sweat some and had a moment to shower off. And I notice, every morning I come here it's 86 degrees. Lats year, 82. What's happening? I ran the first lap slower than usual, alone. And all the rest of 'em … Continue reading It’s always 86 now for the start?
5mi. The run before Loggerhead tri for most athletes is tapered. Jokingly, I heard people referring to it as the "World Championships of Jupiter." I had all intents of running fast since my leg has done considerable healing and it does not feel any different than the uninjured one. I had a good run, we … Continue reading Back at track
2000 yards. This workout went very well! The intervals, the timing, it felt very good. I tried to concentrate on rotating side to side and catch up type arm motions. Warmup Set (400y) 250 easy-mod @ 5:20 150 kick Main Set (1300y) 3 x [100 easy @ 2:35, 100 moderate @ 2:25, 100 mod-hard @ … Continue reading Getting better!
8mi. Today's run was actually perfect weather for the ride, not as much so for the running. It was so dead still, the sweat began for me on the 1 mile warmup - Chiara and Scott came along for the 5am start. I ran my 6 laps with Scott, who went slow enough thankfully as … Continue reading Bridges count, even when I go slooooow!
2000 yards. I was so tired, I think the water woke me up to some extent. I was glad to see that today's workout on the SwimFaster app was all short intervals... Warmup Set (300y) [100 easy, 50 kick, 50 easy, 25 kick, 25 easy] @ 0:20 rest between each interval 50 choice Main Set … Continue reading Lazy lap slapping
20 mi My gold star Tuesday came about because I didn't want to wake up early again Wednesday morning. I came back from work and decided to do the Singer Island loop. I averaged 20.4, not bad considering traffic and completely stopping at some lights, which hardly ever happens on a 5am start. I brought … Continue reading TT to round it out
