Pre rode the bike course for tomorrow's race. It is a 5.6 mile loop done twice - just did one today.

The eve of my first triathlon. I am a bit nervous about it, but I know that I have trained for this and I know I can do the distances. I really don't want to finish last though. My goal is to finish in somewhere around 1:50. I will have a better idea today as I am going to ride the bike trail (1 five mile loop - the race is two loops) after this afternoon, I will have a good idea how long the 10 miles will take me tomorrow. I am going to walk through the transitions this afternoon also so I can put my mind at ease about packing up for tomorrow. ---------------------- I just got back from the race pre-reg. I did the bike course today, (1 loop - 2 tomorrow) The bike course is a bit more challenging than I thought. It is actually just as tough, if not tougher, than RP. Tough hills with sand and gravel etc. I now have resorted to telling myself that I just want to finish tomorrow, which is a change from earlier in the week when I said I wanted to do it in 1:45. It is going to be hard.

Day off today - First triathlon ever on Sunday. Looking forward to it and trying desperately to relax. I can't believe that school starts in week. I am actually looking forward to getting back in that routine, and going to the gym early, before work. I am actually looking forward to being the one at the gym at 5am who HAS done a triathlon. I am also looking forward to sharing this experience with some of my students and players.

I actually felt pretty good in the pool today. I was able to freestyle swim the first 210 yds without switching stroke types, which made me feel like some of the training is starting to pay off. If I am able to swim 2:44/100yds in the race on Sunday, I will finish the swim portion in 24:00, which would be great for me. I would like to finish the swim in 25 min, the bike in 45 min and the run in 35 min which would be a total of 1:45 plus t1 and t2 times which will take me somewhere around 1:50 for the race.

Not a very good ride, I think i was saving myself becuase I did a brick today. A long one with a 3.75 mile run after the bike. I fell at about mile ten and hit my head/neck/left shoulder on a tree. My bike is now screwed up and I have to get it fixed asap. No diamond hills.

Run
  • 38m 35s
  • 3.75 miles

Tired, hot and soar. Very slow.
