La Vida Loca!

Hey all. So let's recap la vida loca and get you up to speed. First training: I have gotten some swims in this week as the plan has a swim focused week and little biking and running. Monday night was track night and the legs were feeling a little sore from Sundays long 63 mile ride so getting to do a little running loosened things up and track night turned out great!

Tuesday, was swim after work. Wednesday was swim again and a run on the treadmill. Today, was rest day as tomorrow I will be back in the pool and a short 20 mile bike ride. Saturday will be the TNT group run of 4 miles but will run 2 extra before we start. Then Sunday, will be no training, WHAT? Yup, that's right. As JT is taking Mrs. JT on a motorcycle ride in the morning. The great thing is that we are going riding on the bike course from last week so she will be able to see why JT was whining about his legs and how tired he was and why he got his ass kicked! HA.

So along with the training issues work has been a little crazy and has made my mind a little mush, but today things cleared up in a good meeting that I really needed for clarification and direction. So la vida loca is just that. We all get it. We all love to hate it. We all love it!

One a super note, I must shout out to Wil with a Big Thank You, as she seemed to be having some low back problems and I was able to provide some assistance and Wil, I am so glad you are feeling better, Anytime!

And last thing, it turns out that The Woodlands Triathlon 101 Series has been Canceled! Sucks! Actually, All the 101 series are dead in the water.

That does suck that the 101 was cancelled. What are you going to do now? Are you doing the 1/2 Iron in Conroe?

Shelley said... sucks..i'm going to BAHAMAS baby!!!!!

It sucks about the 101 series. I was signed up and looking forward to the 50.5. Not sure if I will do Ironstar or Longhorn, as I'm not really ready to do another half iron.

At least they are refunding the entry fees.

(The quote looks quite nice on your blog. It looks good in blue).

Take Care!

I don't swim there. Maybe I have an evil twin in Houston. I'm going to the that Olympic one in Canyon Lake. Everyone is really angry about the 101 being cancelled. I heard that the Woodlands neighborhood pulled out at the last minute, not wanting to bother the residents, etc, but you'd think that they'd have some sort of contract. Maybe I'll train for the marathon now.

I'm getting some Oakleys before Toby does! Pretty happy with my cheap-ass sunglasses, so don't tempt me! Specialized has some cool sunglasses too.

See around training. :)

O.K...most guys keep their bike ownership to one type! Motor or physical engine....I say keep em all and keep on em! Great job on the training.

Sorry to hear about the 101 as I was looking forward to watching you race.

Any other options?
