      Nice run Steve! You were looking strong at the finish! I'd say you managed the tank perfectly!

    Awesome morning swim 2750 yd 01:05 41:43 pace

    The main set today was 3 x 800s. After a little warm up and some drills, I jumped into it. First one had the highest RPE, but the last two felt really good. Average paces/100 were 2:01, 1:57, and 1... read more

    good Powers Lake Swim 2326 yd 00:53 39:59 pace

    Awesome OWS this morning with Garth, Nat, and Mike. Water was 74 degrees and calm. It took me about 900 yards to get warmed up. Stopped a few times for some extra breaths during that time (2:11/100... read more

    good Short Brick Run 1.55 mi 00:12:01 07:45 pace

    Quick shoe change then was out the door for a little run just to test the legs off the bike. They felt surprisingly good!

    good Endurance Ride + Tech Problem... 54.79 mi 02:48 19.6mph pace

      The frustrating part about the tech problems is that I went back to "fix" whatever went wrong last night, thinking a firmware update or something was needed. I got the bike in the trainer, got the computer all set up, turned on both Garmin devices and started pedaling. Everything worked exactly like it should without doing anything. WTF??? So much for consistent performance. No time for that kind of crap on race day!

    great Birthday party #2 of the weekend 02:00

    Had another awesome time at The Rock Spot for C1's birthday party. The guys there are fantastic. They kept the kids busy so I could take pictures and do some climbing myself.

    good 3-hour ride gone wrong 1.83 mi 00:06:37 16.6mph pace

      Yeah, went to Mystic Cycle but they didn't have the tubes I need. I had to order them. Good thing I have an extra front wheel. :)

    good Tempo 1 x 30 min 19.87 mi 01:02 19.3mph pace

    Breezy, but cool morning. Power was close to the target range but HR was a little over for the interval. Felt comfortably hard. Bike is definitely getting more comfortable too. 3-hour ride on tap f... read more

    alright Rushed swim 1700 yd 00:40 41:19 pace

    Was supposed to do 3 x 800 intervals today. Got to the pool late and only got in 1 x 800 and 1 x 600 before I had to get out. Better luck next time.

    good SS Run 3 x 15 min 9.6 mi 01:15 07:47 pace

    good Drill Day 1200 yd 00:34 49:38 pace

    Starting a recovery block so the next week or so will be pretty light. Mostly drills today, kicking on side, triple switch, catch ups, one-arm and fist drills, kicking. Short but sweet.

      It's definitely an unsettling feeling getting pushed around like that. Good to know what to expect though and how the bike handles. Nice ride, Steve! :)

    I picked up a new toy yesterday. I've only taken it out for a short ride so far. This weekend will try to get a couple hours on it. Very different ride than my road bike!

    good Endurance Swim 5 x 400 3100 yd 01:15 42:32 pace

    2x100 warm up
    4x50 kick on side
    4x50 6 beat kick and switch
