  1. RUN
    great 5 mi

    I'm off to Carlsbad Caverns this afternoon, and had already packed my GPS watch, so I went untimed. Of course, a mile in, I realized that my GPS watch won't work in the caverns, will it? ... read more

    MMA! It was a really, really technical ground day, learning the long kino mutai flow. We were so confused. We'll get it eventually!

  3. RUN
    alright 3 mi 00:38 12:47 pace

    Pace Race! Okay, the run in Lower Water Canyon was GORGEOUS. Bright blue sky, waist-high yellow flowers, green bushes, red-brown rocks…but it was very sandy, so it quickly tired us out. We (my budd... read more

    MMA! Back to the basics because we had new people! Always good to go back to the beginning. Serrata with stick and knife, knife sparring, upward-figure-8+abonicos (no idea how to spell that), eye s... read more

    MMA private lesson! In hindsight, I should've rested all day today, hahaha. But I still managed to get some good practice and learning. We sparred first and worked on my footwork and "str... read more

    Triathlon T2+Run, I think! Again, based on the weird results page and I'll update it if it gets sorted. Had to take two short walking breaks--both when I realized I was faster walking than run... read more

  7. swim
    great 400 m 00:13:49 55:35 pace

    Triathlon Swim Leg! (I *think* it's just the swim leg--about right for how I've been doing in the pool, act least.) Was so out of breath for about 100m, then I settled into a great rhythm.

    Triathlon Bike+T1 Leg (it's hard to decipher the results…I'll update this if they change it?). Since this is SO HILLY, I'm very happy with this time.

      I was happiest on the last 2-ish miles of the bike (it's all downhill and you can build up a ton of speed), the final couple of laps (it was in a pool) of the swim (got into my rhythm and felt great), and sprinting to the finish line. Biking was my least favorite overall, since I was paranoid that I'd get a flat…swimming and running were both super fun! :)

    great 2.5 mi

    Tiiiiny bike ride to see if everything felt ok. I'm so paranoid that my bike will break down tomorrow during the tri. I don't like being beholden to a machine for my race!

  11. swim
    great 500 m

    Final swim before the tri! Just making sure I remembered how! ;)

    Easy, un-timed 2. Last run before triathlon!

    MMA! Good hard workout involving great dumog drills (added punches and take-downs) and some very awkward kino mutai bite flow pieces.

    Short bike ride today, because I had to get to the dentist for a cavity filling. Gooood times.

  15. RUN

    Pace race! I GUESSED BETTER TODAY! I guessed 34:30, so I was only 31 seconds off! My running buddy guessed 34:00, though, so she one, at 1 second off. :) It was totally on roads, so everyone was be... read more

    The triathlon is on Saturday!! My first! Swimming felt solid today. I don't think I kick enough or as strong as I could. Points to work on post-tri and post-three-months-off-to-fix-the-HVAC-sy... read more

    I knew this run would be slow, so I left the watch home. My poor quads need foam rolling and rest so badly. They were toast after yesterday's ride. I muddled through with only one short walkin... read more

    Biked to the Back Gate again! Oh those hills. No breaks, though, except at the turn-around point for a bit.

  20. RUN
    great 4 mi

    No watch--ran by feel. Felt pretty good! My quads were sore, but they held up. :)
