Swim was pretty good. There were a lot of slow men in the wave in front of me (2 minutes) and I caught a lot of them. Not sure if I did good or they didn't. I'm working on my swim stroke so hopefully the next couple of weeks we'll be able to tell.

Well without dropping my chain and getting it stuck I was 3 minutes faster than last week. YAY - but URGH this course just sucks the life out of my legs with those stupid wood chips. Also this was DH's first time doing a tri (EVER - but he's a cyclist and a marathoner). I beat him only by seconds on the bike - and 2 minutes on the swim. Of course he clobbered me on the run - but I digress. It's just a matter of time before he's sweeping me on all 3!

So yeah, the bike - much better than last week. Excited for NEXT week!

Comments:

I can't run to save my life LOL - and it didn't help I gave the bike everything I had. So there was nothing left.

HOWEVER, to finish is to win and despite the humidity I felt pretty good last night. On to #3 next week!

Course: This course drives me nuts because after the swim, there is a .25mile RUN to transition through sand, gravel and pavement. I think I FINALLY found a system that works. I'm taking off my wetsuit at the beach and running in my mtb shoes.

Yay to a good swim and a good bike (with no dropped chain), boo to the dang wood chips.  Nice race, and it's so cool to be able to do the same race week to week to gauge progress.  Congrats to DH, too!

Great job figuring out T1 and dealing with the wood chips. You're going to be storming this race by the end of the series!

Congrats to DH

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?
