Very happy with today's race. Minus the wind on the bike course, and trouble shifting, the rest of the day (and weather) was perfect. I reminded myself that this is probably what B2B is going to be like and just put my head down.

Compared to last year's race, I took off nearly 10 mins, but what's odd is that I placed EXACTLY the same. Top guys that won that same AG last year improved by 4-5 mins each.

2013 - 02:26:32 (26OA and 6AG)
2012 - 02:35:11 (26OA and 6AG)

I have worked really hard on my swim this year, mostly working on technique. Took off 4:15 there. For the bike, I cycled hard, but fought the wind for the first 15+ miles. To be honest, this is the only area I'm disappointed with. The run was a real suffer fest. I didn't let myself slack much, almost throwing up 2x towards the end.

My dumbass didn't get the laps right on my Garmin. They're all f'd up: http://connect.garmin.com/activities?cid=57206694

Long run day that I turned into a 2/3 long run day. White Lake this weekend!

Sure do hope the LBS gets my bike back tomorrow. They stated the parts all had not arrived. I may be racing White Lake on my old road bike, no aero bars...That'd suck!

Super busy day at work. The planned swim turned into an unplanned working lunch. Faq!

Lightning and thunder this morning, so will have to move workout to another part of the day. Bah, humbug.

Hot, humid run today. Started off easy, then brought it up into Z2.

So, this week will be a down week b/c of my race on Saturday. Plan is to take Friday completely off and do some extra stretching and icing. Will try to ride a few hours on Sunday.

Rest day!

Will look to ice, do some eccentrics, and just enjoy the day.

Good week and month of training. I don't recall having put in this many miles of quality cycling in a one month period. Yes, my ass is killing me, but I'm feeling stronger and stronger. I'm seriously looking forward to the first of my 100 mile rides later this month. If everything works out, I am planning on two over-distance rides the training weeks before and after Augusta. I'll begin my taper after that second over-distance ride.

I'm also super excited about starting my racing season. White Lake on Saturday, then Augusta in late September, then the big one in late October. I'm ready!
