Vicelord: if I stay in the right position I could win any of the races I've been in

I'm planning on doing a sprint sometime this summer. Nothing longer, I'd have to actually train for the run and swim then. So there's an upcoming race that's TBD, and I'm not training for it. :D
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

I'm doing a 1/2 IM Aquabike in Sept and a Olympic Aquabike in July.  Assuming the swim training doesn't kill me.  Thus far I am preferring riding on my trainer.

Not a tri, but I am thinking of doing a Du.  Ill have to see how my running goes once its nice enough to get outside, but the Du is in August so I have of plenty of time.

more like ready to drown for me :(

secret plan is that i'll hit 35, retire from bike racing.  by then, most runners will need a knee replacements, making competition a bit easier for me:)

by the way, can i say ass?

I'm currently signed up for 3 races, which are basically my A races.  Now that I've paid out $170 per race, I definitely can't do the first and maybe can't do the second because of other conflicts.  Boo.

Gotta find some other races to fill in the gaps I guess:

-Columbia Tri - May 22
-DC Tri - June 19
-Nations Tri - September 11

I think I'll do a brick workout tonight.
 
Let's say... 650m swim and 25 minutes on the spin bike.  :thumbsup:

No. My longest swim this training cycle has been 550m. I don't want to over-do things.

I'm still doing moderate workouts with swim/run since my current "A" event is the 13.1 on March 20th. I'd like to be able to finish with a decent time, so I've got to keep running. I can't afford any more burnout.
 
My groin muscles hurt a bit from yesterday. Tonight I'm going to try swimming slower, and working on form a bit more.

ijen, sounds like you need to start ramping up the swim distances quick.  Just like biking, it's pretty hard to overdo it unless you have something wrong mechanically.

I did my 45min in the pool.
25 min
rest
10min
rest
5min (obviously my rests were 2-3min)


I think I swam around 1500 plus or minus a little.  I'm sore.
