2013: They call me "HILDEBEAST"....

Friday - August 1

It's a beautiful cool (for TX) morning, and I'd love to go for a run, but I have a ride scheduled for tomorrow and my legs already feel fatigued, so guess I'll just enjoy it as a rest day!

Nice morning for a ride, not too hot, mostly overcast. We went out to The Grove, such a beautiful route. My legs were tired, we took this pretty easy. Hope hit some gravel on a turn and went down, got some good road rash on one hip and elbow. but she hopped right back on and wanted to go on, so we finished the ride! What a trooper!

First OWS this year, haha! Shoulders felt fine today, no pain at all. We were the last wave with the 13-19 year olds. I felt pretty good when I caught up to the swim waves that went 6 minutes ahead of me. A little off on sighting, but overall for as little swim training as I've had, a good swim. 1st out of 12 AG.

  • 39m 18s
  • 12.40 miles
  • 18.93 Mi/hr

This leg felt great!! Passed tons of people, only a few passed me. I worked hard to build up my lead knowing I would lose ground on the run. Flat route, slight headwind coming back in. 1st out of 12 AG.

  • 44m 18s
  • 3.45 miles
  • 12m 50s /Mi

This run actually was not horrible! I ran/walked it, but mentally picked a spot I would make myself run to before I walked. First half was shady, second half in the sun. Halfway through we hit the first water stop and they handed out wet, iced towels, AWESOME, made such a difference! I was waiting for one at the second rest stop, but alas, it wasn't to be. A gal in my AG passed me about a half mile into the run, no way I could keep up with her, and she ended up winning the AG. Run leg ended up 5th out of 12 AG, which I can totally accept in my current amount of run training.

TriWaco Sprint 2014 is in the books!  And I'm pretty pleased with my results for the amount of training I have under my belt.  Of course my worst was the run, I really gotta get my head into the run game and WORK at it!  2nd AG, woot!  And 231 out of 402 total athletes, male and female.  73 out of 185 women.  Total time with transitions 1:38:44.

Tour de Goatneck in Cleburne, TX with the hubby, this was his longest ride so far and he did great! We rode most of the ride together, but I would take off in front on uphills and downhills. I deliberately rode this VERY easy knowing I have a tri tomorrow, so I'm pretty surprised at the speed, never would have thought it would be that fast! Very well organized ride, my only complaint was one stretch of 2-lane road with no shoulder and tons of semis trying to get by.... hoping to do this one again next year but doing the 40+ ride. One funny thing was we say UNICYCLISTS! One had this giant big wheel unicycle and there was a group of 3 using regular unicycles!
