Hey everybody, we're less than a month out from the 2016 edition of St. George 70.3 !!!  How's your training going?  Feeling excited yet? 

I'm woefully undertrained on the swim, but bike and run are okay.  I think if I squeeze in a couple short swims a week between now and May 7 I should be alright, though.  I'm just trying not to overdo anything at this stage so I can make it to the starting line more or less healthy with all parts of my body happy.

What kind of cassette are people using for this course?  On my tri bike I've got a 10-speed setup with a 12-25 on the back right now (53-39 up front), and I'm thinking very strongly of switching out to an 11-28.  I just did a race distance ride trying to simulate the profile somewhat by throwing in a 1200 foot climb at mile 40, and I was out of the saddle more than I'd like for the climb.  Another option is to just take my road bike which already has an 11-28 setup.  I like more road bike better anyway, and I'm definitely not going to be vying for any age group podium spot.  Thoughts anyone?

I did the race in 2014 on my road bike which is a 10-speed with a 11-28 but I'll be on my tri bike this year with an 11-speed and 11-28 in the back. I highly recommend switching out to the 11-28 or bring the road bike. Snow Canyon is tough especially with the heat so having the extra climbing capability with the 11-28 will make your legs a lot happier on the run.

I thought of all the times I didn’t attempt something I wanted to do because I was too afraid of trying something new or of failing completely.

The triathletes really inspired me. I watched them in awe as childlike thoughts went through my head like, "I want to do that!" But then reality set in. “Who are you kidding?

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
