    alright Greenway city loop 16.1 mi 01:29 10.9mph pace

    Slow and easy. My body is still so tired. It gave me time to think. My coach and I were a bad match. Yes, I plan in doing another half ironman...not next year though.

      Good for you to do a bike ride. I imagine your post-race blues are still with you. But a bike ride probably helped. It's probably a great idea to switch coaches. A different perspective is always good.

      Thanks, I'm struggling right now. Getting moving again is a good thing. I plan on hitting the mountain this weekend. I did learn something from her. Not all is bad. I'm really bummed that I didn't do better. I'm just beating myself up right now and I need to stop.

      You do sound pretty sad. You know what I do when that happens to me? Eat ice cream!!!

    But I just didn't feel like running. I have the post race blues. At least I got out and moved. That's a start.

    What a day! I got my money's worth out of this race.

      You finished! That is worth a lot. Seems like you gave it everything you had. Too bad about the flat tire.

      Yep, it is on Sunday. My goal is 7:25 but I will be happy just to finish. It's my first one. If I go slow this time, it will be easier to beat my time next year :)

    Quick swim and then bike. I forgot to bring my running shoes to get the run. That's ok. This is all a mental thing but it really helps me prepare for a triathlon. Time to go home and pack and ... read more

    great Lions park 5.09 mi 00:58 11:23 pace

    It sprinkled lightly on us, no problem. I find 50* and light rain is perfect running weather. We released a little workday stress. I'm feeling so much better now than I did when I started.
