Normal route out on Bethel and back on Hessong Bridge

9/11/2001 - NEVER FORGET!

Stats taken after ride and before dinner, %water 61.1. Think these are trend readings and will probably be different tomorrow. Nothing special tonight, just needed to get out and ride! Hot and a bit muggy this evening with a small thunderstorm to the south threatening to rain on me! But, decided to chance it and as things turned out, it dissipated and I was able to enjoy my ride unimpeded.

Now interesting how things sometimes drop in one's lap. I just noticed on a Facebook group I belong to that there was a free entry in Freedom's Run for joining the local chapter of Team RWB (Red, White, & Blue). Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Mostly I'll be showing the colors and posting a fundraising page to help raise awareness. It's cool with with my sponsor as he's a former Marine himself. So adding this to my list of races. It'll be good training for the 50K at the end of Oct.

Tomorrow: deciding as I write. I may take my running gear into work so I can run before any thunderstorms hit. But I may chance it until later. Will do some light weights at the gym.

Friday: swim in the afternoon, club social in the evening

Sat: Brick - Half Full Tri Olympic course

Sun: swim clinic at Doug Saar's again

Mon: off

gym recumbent

Stats taken after getting home from gym and errands, %water 61.1. Wow, I hope this trend continues! First time I've seen below 17% in a while. Well, will see as I tend to eat a bit more the week after a big race.

So today is just recovery as my inner quads are sore and a few other places too. However, it's really not that bad overall and I'm not hobbling. So, a bit of kicking first with Z2 Zoomers, then deep water running to help with the soreness, and finishing up with a light spin on the recumbent. I really wanted to go out for a ride or something because it was nice though hot. Hopefully tomorrow.

Not sure but I might be getting a cold though it could be allergies. I get them this time of year. I woke up with a good deal of throat soreness yesterday morning. That seemed to go away but it's kinda back later today. So, will see how I do tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Wed: ride after work if it's not storming

Thur: possible second ride but more than likely I'll be inside the gym again.

Fri: swim, perhaps weights, and easy run

Sat: I'm hoping I can do the Columbia bike and run for a brick.

Sun: With Doug Saar during the late morning to early afternoon for another swim clinic session. If I don't do the brick on Sat, I will try on Sun

Mon: off

This all assumes I'm not catching a cold.

Recovering from yesterday's race. Not really feeling too bad considering, but I know that my inner quads will be more sore tomorrow than today. Still, sometimes I'm hobbling after races. Hopefully won't be too bad. Perhaps treat myself to dinner.

Tomorrow I'm just going to spin easy at the gym as I'll still be recovering. Not sure about the rest of the week as it will be hot for a couple of days. May go for a ride on Wed evening. Should just be a light week before I get back into things as I have the Half Full in a little less than 4 weeks.

Rev3 Half run course

I'll be doing a race report a while later (still haven't gotten done with USAT Nationals :( ). But, let me post here what I posted on Facebook:

Despite windy conditions (15 mph gust to 22 inland/24 to 29 onshore!), the 1/2 mile jog/run from the swim exit to transition, some light rain halfway on the bike, getting hit by sand off the beach, and sand over my gear in transition blowing in off the beach, finished my 6th Half Ironman distance yesterday at Rev3's Cedar Point Half Rev triathlon event, Sandusky OH! And set a Personal Record for the distance finishing in 5 hours, 14 min, and 24 sec...that's 11 min faster than in 2011 at Eagleman 70.3! The icing on the cake was that I came in 4th in Age Group out of 36 and 88th out of 706 finishers overall!! Missed 3rd by 1m's okay, I was elated that I PR'd!

I will post some pics too. A LOT more to talk about on this one!

w/u 100 breast
5 x 100 free RI :30
350 kicking w/fins

Stats taken after swim and before getting something else to eat, %water 59.6 (so probably a bit of morning dehydration). As planned morning swim. Just decided on a few 100s and then some kicking with new Z2 Zoomer fins. Those are totally different than the others and really don't provide as much oomph pure kick. See if they help with my ankles and also will hopefully remember to use them during the clinic on the 15th.

Leaving for Cedar Point in a little over 3 hours. Will be at race site tomorrow and race is on Sunday. While I'll be attempting a PR for the distance, goal is to finish and also have fun. While this is not going to be a hot race and weather is looking pretty decent overall, there does look to be headwinds coming back on the bike which could slow me down. Let's hope they really don't start kicking up until I'm on the run. Plus I will have some nice aero wheels on for the race if Rev3 folks come through with them and hopefully, those will help me slice through the air a bit better than my present wheels.

Might make an entry tomorrow. But, if not, more after that race, probably on Monday as it looks like we may be driving back not too long after the race. Wish me luck!!

The YMCA Women's Sprint bike course

  • 33m 07s
  • 3.57 miles
  • 09m 16s /Mi

Through Middletown and Foxfield.

Stats taken after workout and before dinner, %water 60.3. One of the club members asked if anyone was interested in a light brick this evening and I decided that I would join her plus whoever else came out. The course is the YMCA Women's Sprint Tri which is coming up this month and is only 10 miles. Then she said about doing 6 for the run but that was too much for me this evening and as it turned out, only did the distance indicated. The bike is rolling and not too difficult. Took it easy because had 3 women riding as well and they weren't going quite as fast. I didn't really want to push on the brick anyway since I'm in taper mode. Nice evening for a ride too! Moved to the run and like I said, we took it pretty easy as well as kept the overall distance down. Legs/feet felt pretty good and I felt like I could go a lot faster if I wanted, which is a good sign. Enjoyed the company too.

Tomorrow: Easy swim perhaps only 500 - 700 and then kicking with fins, see my chiropractor, finish packing, get to Kens and go to race site

Sat: at Race site


Mon: OFF- Go to Bonefish Grill :) !!!
