  1. VELO
    great A Step Forward 24.72 mi 01:33 15.9mph pace

    Todd got me up and out at 5:30 for our own version of the Big Chief ride - really just what I needed...

  2. RUN
    great Cooler Temps - Lower Dewpoint 5.5 mi 01:01 11:02 pace

    First run since Effingham - felt good. Nice to get back into it and find some rhythm every so often on this one. I know the heat will return, and honestly, I need it to from time to time, but it&#x... read more

    great Sweaty Twenty 21.28 mi 01:10 18.2mph pace

    The title has been used to death, but it's just plain hot! I could feel some "cooler" and "drier" (words used in comparison) air coming in as I finished up. Did some race p... read more

    great LSL Bathwater 2967 yd 01:06 39:12 pace

    What a bummer that swimming open water has already been dampened by the hot weather. LSL - probably already in the 80's - not refreshing, but had to get the efforts in. Started sluggish, but t... read more

    great Katy Trail MTB 11.34 mi 00:57 12.0mph pace

    Before I jump back into stuff for the next 70.3, took a morning to relax and savor what little early morning cool there was. Headed out on the Katy on the MTB for some solid time - just enjoyment

  6. RUN
    tired Effingham 70.3 Run - DNF 2.47 mi 00:37 15:02 pace

    Yea, in case you didn't notice, a 70.3 has more than 2.5 miles of a run. I think a combination of the heat and lack of electrolytes hit me hard, and I found myself close to passing out and vom... read more

  7. VELO
    great Effingham 70.3 Cycle 56 mi 03:17 17.1mph pace

    Everyone had told me two things about the ride in this race - 1) there was no shade and 2) you would hit headwinds at some point. They were right about both. The lack of cover during the ride wasn&... read more

  8. swim
    great Effingham 70.3 Swim 1831 yd 00:37 35:59 pace

    Got to transition in plenty of time to get set up. Got ready for a mass start (with 96 other participants). Small race, so we all go going and did a two-lap course. Really went well. The weird thin... read more

      sounds like nice conditions. 80F is nice. And, it normally takes me about 4 min to take off my wetsuit, so that would have been ideal.

  9. RUN
    great Quick Pre-70.3 Run 1.01 mi 00:11:10 11:03 pace

    Felt good just to loosen the legs a bit after the drive up.

  10. VELO
    great Effingham Pre-70.3 Ride 5.79 mi 00:20 17.3mph pace

    Headed out on the country roads. Strong indications that the heat and wind would be factors in the race, so it was good to get a feel for those, as well as the pavement full of seams. Nothing compa... read more

  11. swim
    great Effingham Pre-70.3 Swim 500 yd 00:10:00 35:11 pace

    Headed up to Effingham for the 70.3. It was gonna be a hot one. Even the water had warmed up, so I knew that the swim would be sans-wetsuit - so that's what I worked on. Felt good.

  12. RUN
    great Fooling the Medulla - Hot Las... 2.02 mi 00:22 10:53 pace

    Short last run before my 70.3 on Sunday. Opted for a little heat training instead of a morning run - smart thing I did it. Use my brand new Chill-it's Towel and also excited to take my Eric S.... read more

    great Channelling Elvis 16.04 mi 00:54 17.9mph pace

    "I can feel the temperature rising"... Yep, it's starting to warm, and it's headed north. Last ride lengthy ride before Sunday's SIZZLING 70.3 - felt good. No wind, no pres... read more

  14. RUN
    great Four Miles - It's Taper Week 4 mi 00:44 10:53 pace

    Tapering down to my first 70.3 on Sunday. Thankful for a nice, breezy June day to get a run in before things get ugly the next few days. Relaxed and happy all the way through - nice easy week ahead...

  15. RUN
    good New Town Run 3.01 mi 00:34 11:19 pace

      Then I went ice skating, and the whole time, I kept thinking of the last time you went roller skating....

    great Brick Bike 20.21 mi 01:04 19.1mph pace

    Quick out and back from New Town towards Portage and back. Kept the pace moving the whole time through - both into and with the wind. Legs felt good after too!

  17. swim
    great New Town OWS 3000 yd 01:04 37:26 pace

    Good start to the brick work. OWS is always a favorite, and today was no exception. Taking it solid and steady all the way through.

  18. swim
    great Back in the Pool 2450 yd 00:53 38:05 pace

    100's and 100's and 100's - Forgot how to use the Garmin in the pool, so I missed one, but it was there - that's for sure.

  19. VELO
    great Punchiness 20.59 mi 01:07 18.5mph pace

    Fast full-throttle intervals this morning. Fun times to throw it into overdrive out in the flats.

  20. swim
    great Lake St. Louis Swim 2455 yd 00:50 36:08 pace

    Second time out at LSL. Pacing good, sighting getting better every time. The arms go round and round - that's what they need to do...
