Glad you're still streaking, Ron!

I am still at it, today was day 972 with 9.2 hot steamy miles. I was camping for 5 day so I was unplugged, no electronics at all and it was great, all that time and then busy after camping with work and family stuff. Glad to see everyone is still going strong especially ImSore. Wow you are killing it training, I sure hope it translates to great results in you upcoming race.


Glad to have you back. I feel confident with the bike and run, I've trained pretty hard. The swim I have some concern about. I've put in about the same volume as last year. I want to get out of the water in no greater than 1:20. I'll try to cram some swimming in the time I have left. I should be able to manage provided there isn't anything unexpected.

#638-2 mi after 125 mi bike in 90+ degree heat with 7800 ft elevation gain (my all time longest ride)

#639- 10 mi progression, ran late didn't get done until 10pm, it took a lot of mental effort to get started, but it actually went well. I finished the last 2 miles just under 7 min/mi (6:59). Suffered through a 3 k swim earlier. My calves keep cramping about 2500 yds in to my swims.

Day 974 with a 20.3 mile run. I am swimming for a team in an adventure race next weekend, 2.8 miles in a lake, and swam the route yesterday in some tough conditions. Very windy into us with a lot of chop, I managed but it took me 1 hour and 51 minutes. That is about 30 minutes longer than I would've liked but it was close to being the toughest conditions I had ever been swimming in. It probably did not help that it was only my third swim of the year. Nothing like waiting to the last minute to train. I also ran 8 miles just prior to the swim yesterday.

Imsore, wow 125 miles with lots of hills. I sure you will crush the run and bike. Hopefully you will pr your swim as well.

Wednesday - #360 - 2 mile run, and then 1 mile walk. I had biked a 15 mile loop beforehand. This was one of these days when I just didn't have it. Took off on the bike and kept my HR fairly low for most of the ride, ended up being a good mile per hour slower than normal. On the run, I wasn't sweating nor breathing hard nor feeling sore or tired legs, but something about me just was struggling to go on even at my easy pace. I got to 2 miles and then just walked on home, figuring I must need some kind of break.

Thursday - #361 - 4 miles of speed work, and then 1500y in the pool. Felt much better running this time. The swim was kind of worthless, but oh well.

Hoping to get in a decent run this afternoon, and then I take off with a buddy to go on a short trip to see a Jimmy Buffett concert tomorrow night. I'll get a run in tomorrow morning too before we leave for the tailgate.
