About Me

My photo
This is my 6th Summer of racing triathlon. I have now completed 3 Ironmans under my belt, Florida 2009, Coeur d'Alene 2010, and most recently Ironman Wisconsin on 9/11/11. I love my family and I love my sport and everything they have both done for me.

Read :-)

42 days left until Ironman Florida. I am coming to end of my last rest week before my last big build up - then taper. I am feeling comfortable with all of my disciplines, my running seems to be falling into place. Did a 5 hour ride last Sunday, 2 this coming Sunday, and then 5, 5.5, and 6. I think I have my nutrition "plan" nailed down, about 550-650 calories / hour on the bike, with slightly less while training. Of course plans can change on race day depending on weather and other things. I'm doing a 10K this weekend - falls conveniently into my schedule. And on a related note, the Kona lottery opens on 10/1 and I'm going to enter it. 150 people selected out of thousands, so the chance is minimal. But everyone prob thinks that they have no chance, and then you get in. Then comes what I imagine is kind of a "holy shit" moment. The holy grail of races, every triathlete's dream - one day I will be there. I'm kidding myself if I think I'm fast enough to qualify, so it's up to chance - who knows... I might get lucky.... Or not depending on how you look at it... That's all for now people. More soon, promise :-)

Garmin Connect - Activity Details for 2:30 E3 Run

Here is a link to my 2:30 run from Saturday 9/20. I felt pretty good considering I haven't gone that long or far since April or May or so. And yes I know I'm a nerd for posting this....

Welcome... And Square Lake race report

Hi all,
I have decided to switch blog sites to this one since it seems to be a little more user friendly. For those of you who want to read what I have on my "other" one, the address is http://www.triathlondon.choseit.com. I will however be using this one from now on. So... Square Lake was last weekend. Overall, I was happy with the results. I was slightly faster than last year at the same race. My swim, bike, and both my transitions were faster to some degree. My run was not. It was a hot and humid day, the run course is hilly, and had little to no shade. All things considered, only about five minutes slower on the run is not too bad a result. It's five days after the race, and I feel I have recovered very well, and feel few lingering effects. I'm gearing up for a LONG training weekend, 1:30 swim and 2:30 run on Saturday, and 5:00 ride on Sunday. Only 50 days til Florida. The most important training is beginning. It's crunch time :-)
