Course: Out and back along the park road and then onto hwy 104. Not much vehicle traffic. CHP monitored for safety. Roads in the park were fairly smooth. Several speed bumps to cross. Areas with many small round pavement markers near pedestrian areas in the park also. Mostly flat in the park then a couple of downhills. Once onto hwy 104 there are some low rolling hills but no big climbs. Turnaround is very tight in the middle of the roadway, but well manned by volunteers warning riders in advance. Then back to the park to climp those couple of hills and then flat to transition

Do we really need chia, spelt, and quinoa? Is anything wrong with old-fashioned peanut butter, broccoli and brown rice?

We have new 10 and 20 week training plans for the New Year! These mini sprint plans are very conservative and will get any person thinking of training for a triathlon ready to cross the finish-line.

Cotswold super sprint - UK. Lots of bodies colliding, I swam half over someone, got kicked by some bloody breaststroker, and as a mob we poured towards the first buoy.

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

Since I didn't have much time and since it's a super sprint, am I OK just go to at the training relatively hard through Thursday or even Friday?
