Subject: Stay on Target, Stay on Target!
So, last summer I did my first and only Triathlon. I did the Boulder Peak, an Oly in Boulder Colorado. I chose it because it was close to home and longer than a sprint. I felt like I could pull it off and it would motivate me to get off my but!

Long story short, I did not train much for it at all. Before the day of, I had run 54 miles, biked like 700 miles and swam about 4.5 hours. The swim and the bike were fine. The run was terrible.

I had planned to not be a Clyde, but I did not train much and was a solid 205 the day of. The people there were awesome. Susan Williams came in second at this event before her bronze a in Athens. I got in at 3:20 with a 70 minute 10 K.

Again long story short, I have been training like crazy. I am currently at 700 miles for the year biking. I am currently at over 40 hours of swimming for the year. I am currently at nearly 200 miles of running for the year. Most important, I am under 180 for the first time in a really long time (can you say sophmore year of college).

I am so looking forward to the Boulder peak this year! I plan on doing *much* better. Just 6+ weeks left in the training plan and I am there.

I just wanted to share! No other point there. See you training!

Get scared? That usually motivates me.

Judging by your avatar picture, I'm not surprised. 

Though I have to admit, I read the subject and immediately thought of Renee for some strange reason...  ( Hi Renee! ).

Not to thread hijack, so kudos to the original poster.  Keep up the good work man!

Way to kick up the training.  I can't wait to hear how much faster you are this year.
