Tuesday's Thoughts

This season started off in a hurry for me.  With the marathon and 3 sprints already completed this year, I am assessing my direction for the rest of the year.  

I am enjoying my success in the pool.  My swims this season have been great and getting better.  Now to work on open water and speed.  Open water scary and speed is a funny thought to me.  I am working on drill after drill and spending as much time in the pool as I can.  I will get there.  

My cycling speed has really diminished.  I really do not have a good reason for it.  It is truly a direct reflection on the time I spend on the bike.  I have to get back to group rides and then more longer individual rides.  I really miss the groups.  

Running is still by far my strength.  Recently I have even increased my speed.  I think all the base work I did preparing for the marathon has paid off.  My "slow runs" now are averaging around 7:30 - 7:45 min miles.  My speed work is at around 7:00 min miles.  That is great.  Now to maintain that and increase the other areas.  

Time for new goals.  
Swim:  1000 continuous 2:00/100 pace
Bike:  50 miles average 18.5 mph
Run:  Sub 20 min 5k.  

My next tri is Three Pigs on 6/16.  I am planning on getting a Century completed in May and either a 5 or 10k in May as well.  


  1. Dude, you are killing it! Keep accomplishing and establishing new goals...

  2. Group rides sounds like a good plan, you always seem so excited when you talk about that!

    And Three Pigs is the most awesome name for a tri! :D
