I did 300m swim 10 mile bike and 1 mile run. Felt nice.

Garmin file which probably makes no sense. I felt like going fast at the end of the run, so that's the spike.

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.

Yep. I've got 9 months at this point. I'm going to try and start swimming daily, even if it's only small amounts on some days.

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.

-Columbia Tri - May 22


So not only did I cancel the Columbia tri to attend my friends wedding, his bachelor party is going to be on the date of another race I was going to do.  It's not like I'm doing a ton of races, this is just crappy lucky.

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.


I found a sprint Du in June.  Depending on how that one goes I will then decide on the Du in August

Reverse brick tonight.

30 minutes spin bike and then 500y swim, followed by leg weights.

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.


Well, I didn't do the Olympic, but did a sprint last week.  I could not figure out why I struggled so much in the swim, and why I recovered so slowly last week.  I found out yesterday when I vomitted blood.  Had my blood count checked and I am really anemic.  For a GI workup, but I'm pretty sure I have an ulcer.  My internist told me (and I knew this myself before he brought it up) to forget about the 1/2 IM next month. :(   I was wondering why I had headaches after every workout :facepalm:


looks like next year.

I'm sorry to hear this to RU.  I hope there is something that can be done to get you back to normal.

I'll find out tuesday but if I'm right about the ulcer it is cauterize the bleeder, acid blockers and time.  My blood count is about 50% of normal so it will take a while. If I was dizzy I'd get transfused but I'd have to be a lot sicker for that. Epo would help :)   :P

Good luck RU!

I'm looking at the newly announced Rev3 Maine 70.3 next August.  Tempting.  It's about a 20 minute drive from where my family always goes for vacation, and my uncle owns a home there so I can probably crash there for free.  Great area and great weather that time of year.

I'm starting to think my tri this weekend is going to turn into a duathlon.  All this rain cooled down the water temperatures, but I think it's going to wash a bunch of crap from upriver and make it unswimmable.

Boo.  They had to cancel the swim because of all the rain.  Just a 40k bike 10k run race now, not a full duathlon.
