Really strong ride. Had to back off at the end due to cramping feeling.

Right shin is sore. I may be calling the season quits after TriRock to heal up and get ready for IMTX.

Swim
  • 36m 08s
  • 1850.00 yards
  • -----

Easy open water swim at the Quarry before working the Splash n Dash.

I have been mandated by a nutritionist to drink 4 bottles of water a day with some electrolytes in it to get me fully hydrated. She swears the reason I cramp constantly is due to a constant state of dehydration.

Monday - August 18

Run
  • 1h 38m 57s
  • 12.10 miles
  • 08m 10s /Mi

Easly long run. Had to stop every so often to stretch hammy's and quads to keep from cramping. I have fitness to go faster but but cramps just don't allow it.

Sunday - August 17

Run
  • 31m 36s
  • 4.04 miles
  • 07m 49s /Mi

I said I was going to take 3-4 days totally off after yesterday but I am just not wired that way. It was much cooler this evening but my legs were still very tight.

Saturday - August 16

Bike
  • 4h 06m 33s
  • 74.22 miles
  • 18.06 Mi/hr

CLIMB: 2,629ft
AP: 150

AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH! Had to get off the bike at mile 50 and lay down because my entire body was seizing in cramps. Even my forearms were cramping. I laid down, drank, and tried to take in more calories just so I could make it back to the house.

The last 24 miles were just spinning as absolutely easy as I could just so I could get back. I couldn't force anything or I would have completely seized up again.

I AM JUST SO DAMN FRUSTRATED WITH THE CRAMPS! THIS JUST ISN'T RIGHT. SOMETHING HAS TO BE WRONG WITH MY BLOOD OR BODY.
