  • 1h 09m
  • 20.06 miles
  • 17.44 Mi/hr

PM Bike after swim. Cold! should have worn gloves. Not as windy as this morning. Was going to run, but opted out as it was late...

1200 feet

Bike #2
  • 1h 33m 30s
  • 25.00 miles
  • 16.04 Mi/hr

Up Vail Pass (not to the top).
It has been very windy every day, but nothing like today. I went up Vail Pass faster than down it. 12.5 miles directly into the most fierce headwind ever. I don't remember wind like this in Denver or I chose not to ride in it.

Swim
  • 22m
  • 1000.00 meters
  • 02m 12s /100 meters

1 x 500
5 x 100 just counting strokes and "trying" to glide longer between strokes.

So I spent the $$. I'm in for the 5430 Long Course Triathlon. It is the only race of the 5430 series that I will be doing this year, although it is my favorite. According to USAT, however, my best race last year was the Boulder Peak (beat dills!), but my big goal is to crack the 4:40 mark which I missed by 28" last season. I'm happy about this registration. I am in for two HIM's and a Mary for this year now, The Colorado Relay with Altitude Adjusted, The St. George Marathon and some other races to be announced. I'm late figuring out my season, just as I had a late start getting rolling this year. So it goes. Here I go again, just registered for the Bolder Boulder... A wave baby! I don't think I can PR at this course (35:17), but I'd like to crack 37. I have a bad habit of fading on this course. I may change my tactic.

Tuesday - May 12

Bike
  • 1h 11m
  • 20.20 miles
  • 17.07 Mi/hr

Wind. This is not a lie: I was coming back with a tailwind, I turned hard right and the wind picked me and the bike off the ground. It felt like when you hydroplane in your car. Scary and true!

  • 4.00 miles
  • 07m 30s /Mi

treadmill

Swim

Bike
  • 4h 10m
  • 63.10 miles
  • 15.14 Mi/hr

6269 feet of climbing... out to The State Bridge. The climbing was nothing. It was the 30 mile per hour winds that beat me up!

Run
  • 1h 29m
  • 10.00 miles
  • 08m 54s /Mi

1460 feet of gain

ran at 8pm cuz the sun got to me today and I napped after my ride. I was going to swim but I woke up too late. I will get wet tomorrow.

Great news!!! I got in via the lottery to the St. George Marathon on my first try! Rated "one of four marathons to build a vacation around" in the world." -Runner's World 2005 The SGM is fast and beautiful. After not having my best race in Boston I was looking for a fast early fall marathon and Chicago was already sold out. On a whim, I registered for SG and didn't really expect to get in, but I did! YAY. Now I have THE RACE to go for <2:50 in. I think <2:45 is realistic but I'm totally not going to blow it early. I'm going to enjoy this one... Timing is perfect, I'm going to train right too.

Oh and congratulations to Alaina and Mark! Both made USAT All American! I'm sure I'm missing some others so if you made it, I kneel at your alter of fitness. Dime did OK too... USAT All American Honorable Mention. Not bad for someone who truly cannot swim. I wonder if I am the worst swimmer who got at least honorable mention. I bet.
