Got caught up yesterday, now I have one "open" file [inspected but report is not done] and one inspection later on this morning. I needed a rest day yesterday because I was hurtin' after that duathlon! I haven't been running a bunch since IMKS in hopes that I would let my foot heal for these smaller races I have going on the rest of the year, therefore my "running legs" do not feel good after pushing hard for 4 miles! Hoping to get a swim in later on today when I get everything done. --- w00t, might get a new order for a desk review and another order for a property up in West Point [100 miles away]! --- Got those two orders mentioned above, got one appraisal done and out the door so I have one open file again, and another inspection tomorrow.

Run #1
Stayed with Brynn the whole time because she's like the tortoise from the tortoise & the hare - steady the whole time. She's like those wind-up chatter teeth, you get her going and she'll keep whatever pace she starts at until she can't go any further. It's amazing. So she was my pacer the first two miles. Total guess on time, though it's probably close to accurate. With about 100 - 150 yards before the transition area we were at 17:10 so I figure 18:30 is fair.

  • 36m 58s
  • 12.00 miles
  • 19.48 Mi/hr

Whew! Fast bike split for me. I think the course was a little short of 12 mi - Brynn's computer seems to be right on the money and she had 11.8 so until they post an "official" mileage I'm going with 12! That's what the Black Squirrel folks did when they learned that their course wasn't 21 miles but rather 18 and some change, so they changed the mileage on the final results. I wish Papillion would do that too - they advertise a 15 mi. bike on their tri but it's really more like 12.4.

Anyway, NICE wind pushing us out to the turn-around, then it played tricks on our minds on the way in. I still managed to average high 16 to mid-17s the whole way back though, which kept my avg. up. Avg. on the way out was 21.8! Smokin' fast for me.

Run #2
  • 17m
  • 2.00 miles

Another guess on time here but here's how I came up with it. At about 100 yards out of T2 my calves were cramping something fierce [both of them] so I stopped at a curb and stretched both for about 10 seconds each. Looked down at my watch and I was at >56 min. After I hit the turn-around I was over 1:05 and I finished in 1:12:45-ish so I figured 17 would be fair. Good pace for me coming off the bike AND stretching! Missed out on AG hardware though, bigtime.

Today: Pathfinder Duathlon - run 2 / bike 12 / run 2 / eat pizza 10:22PM- Got comps and info entered into an appraisal for a property I inspected on the 8th. I was basically out of the office the whole afternoon Thursday and all day Friday so I'll be playing a little bit of catch-up tomorrow! Glad I got all that data into this report though, it will go pretty quick tomorrow.

Last time I did The Loop it was 1:22:47. I didn't push nearly as hard this time as I did the last time. I think raising my seat was a very good move. WHY DIDN'T YOU GUYS TELL ME "YOUR SEAT'S TOO LOW!" I see how it is.

Felt like crap just about the entire time, except on the way out. I was a "riding mad" for the first 10 min. or so. Took just a frozen water bottle with me, it thawed nice and quickly and was completely melted at about mile 16 or so. I had it gone by mile 21, so I guess when it's warmer I need more than 1 bottle for this ride. Good info to keep in mind.

Also- this is Stage 3 for me in the TdF Challenge! Go Caisse! 80.7 mi out of 250 by the 28th - 32.28% of mileage goal, 27.77¯% of stage goal.

ALSO felt like crap during THIS workout! It was just not my day today. I got to the pool right at 9:00 and was planning on swimming until they kicked me out at 9:40 but I just couldn't do it. Thought it was just what I was doing in the water, breathing normal [right-side every 2 strokes] on the odd 50s and bi-laterally breathing on the even 50s. So I just breathed right at the 1000 yard mark. Then I really focused on form and front-quadrant swimming the last 100 yards and decided to stop. I stretched for about 10 minutes after I got done because I've been a bad boy about stretching lately so I figured I'd make it up to myself and plan on doing it more regularly.

Nice ride with Brynnie to her work, then continued on the trail to Cooper Y, down 14th to Saltillo, over to 84th & home from there. Was in the low 14s I think when we parted ways, so I picked up the pace coming back. Felt nice and strong. I should do a new LT test one of these days and see how things look. I think it was March when I did it the last [and first] time.

Here are some pics of our garden: The first one shows the time and date when I took the picture. This is our pumpkin vine. The second one shows the distance, relative to the fence. The third one shows the vine today, two days later, reaching the fence and beginning to curl over itself. The fourth one shows all the tomatoes which will be ready in the next couple weeks! We have four plants but only two have tomatoes right now [they're all different "breeds" and I know one is a "late-season" variety]
