Back at it

Took a good week off. I was not feeling well. I did sign up for the Beach 2 Beacon. I think this will be the last year for that. It is a 10K race. It was online signup only. Site kept locking up and tons of people were unable to sign up. There are many other road races that donate a larger % of their profits to a wider array of charities... FUn event, but starting to be a project just to get into the race.

This week I hit the pool Monday and Tuesday night. Mollie, Jamie and Jen were there. They are going to be in their first Tri this year. I gave them some pointers... Do as I say, not as I do!!

Also, I was looking to get out of the lane I was swimming in. There were two other guys in the lane. One had on a wetsuit and one was related to Phelps I think. Needless to say, I was in their way...

Felt really good overall though. Much better than I did a year ago leading up to the Polar Bear. Also I have started to run at lunch. I have a 3.1 mile loop and a 4.5 loop. I am going to try to get my road mileage up to 20 miles a week leading up to the Polar Bear tri the first of May.

I really need to get some miles on my bike though. That will be my major concentration over the next few weeks. Also, Crystal is looking for a bike. 52 - 54cm in the $600 to $800 range. At least Tiagra comps.. If anyone is selling or knows someone selling, let us know!

Dude.... you're a total tri geek now. Tiagra comps and running at lunch. Totally badass.
