Proceeding Apace.

9 June 2017

Well, I took Sunday through Tuesday off from training due to being sick. I’m still not 100% but at least I’m able to get out there. Wednesday I did a little four mile run at about a 9:30 pace, and then yesterday I did my brick. That consisted of a 16 mile bike ride followed by a 4.2 mile run. The whole thing took me about an hour and forty minutes, not counting transition.

I’m very pleased with those results. I don’t feel great and it’s getting warmer (although a little cool for early June), but I was able to perform well over short distances. I have a half marathon this weekend and I’ll be testing out my run/walk which I expect to have to do during the half-Ironman. We’re going to try 0.8 miles running, 0.2 miles walking the entire distance, and see what kind of pace that gets me.

It’s a little hilly, I’m told, and it should be warm and humid, exactly the conditions I’m expecting for the big triathlon. We’ll see how I feel. Life is pretty good, but I need to be in better shape if I expect to be able to complete the goals I have lined up. Lots of work on the horizon.
