Shadow Creek Ranch Sprint Tri went extremely well. I took 10 or 11 minutes off my time from last year and placed 12th in my A/G. I really wanted to hit 10th but what can you do? I had a pretty bad swim followed by a solid bike effort where I jumped from 21st to 12th place and then held 12th on the run. It was hot as heck out there for the run but I hung in there! Yay me!
My next race is a week from tomorrow...another hot one at Bridgeland of course. This past week at work has been tough as I worked 60 hours so haven't rested or trained the way I wanted to. I should still have a race PR but I'm definitely adjusting my expectations accordingly. My A race remains the NYC Marathon so I'm not stressing if these smaller races don't go exactly as planned.
Aside from the past week, training has been going pretty well. I feel like I've hit a good groove with my running and am really enjoying myself out there. My bike rides haven't been longer than a couple hours which is actually perfect right now! Yeah, I'm pretty happy I'm not doing Ironman next year as I 'm enjoying the "break".
Well, that's all I've got. No pics as I'm just trying to be good and get a blog update before my next race.
