never ahead but pressing on..

Wow, Is there any time I can get out and ride without a 20mph+ wind! I guess not! But no worries as JT got 65 miles in yesterday on a two loop route. The day started out great and some easy climbs got the heart rate pumping. I eventually caught up to a TEAM cycling group and rode with them for about hour. Then I had to bust loose of them and get to some riding as I had a long ways to go and the time was wasting. After completing my first loop and stopping off to refuel I was back off on the 2nd loop only to find myself making a stupid turn around move on the trail and ended up crashing and falling to my left side! Damn! Scrapped my left elbow and hand and made it some what difficult to stay in the aero position but managed to get it done. Overall it was a great long cycling session.

Swimming this week was also good as I ended up almost at 5000 yards. Running was a little sluggish overall so not much happening there.

This week seems to be a continuation of build which is overall good. I hope I can stay strong with the build week and continue on with the workouts. Still seems like I'm behind but I guess that will continue until race day! ughhh..

Good job on the bike. I know how hard those hills can be with the wind.

Way to get it done!

I HATE wind too!!! We're heading to Vegas for Rage, it's always windy there!! Last year they cancelled the swim due to wind/strong currents. Hope that doesn't happen this year!

Great training!
