Not much. Planned on a 9-10 m/m pace. It felt good and heart rate stayed down most of the time. Better than I expected.

It was a C race for me so not nothing really.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?

I own both a road bike and a tri bike. I am wondering which bike I should be riding during off season training, or does it matter?

Two years ago I weighed in at a hefty 280 lbs and was a mess. Now I'm a lean 180 lbs and train daily. What a difference healthy eating, exercise, and self discipline can make!

Riding Zen means nothing more than being keenly aware of your surroundings and in control of your emotional state at all times. It also means riding safe and riding smart.
