    alright Texasman Olympic Tri 6.2 mi 00:51 08:12 pace

    alright Texasman Olympic Tri 24.8 mi 01:26 17.3mph pace

    This course has some decent hills and we were going into the wind the last 14 miles, so there that. Mainly though, my cycling speed just isn't where it used to, or needs to be to ride faster. ... read more

    good Texasman Olympic Tri 1760 yd 00:36 36:07 pace

    First tri of the season and, um yeah, clearly I'm not at peak condition as evidenced by this SLOW swim. Even so, I felt really comfortable in the H2O (but, it was cold) throughout, even when t... read more

      @Jeff -- I'm doing the TexasMan Olympic distance out at Lake Ray Roberts. Also signed up for Playtri on 6/7 in Irving and a female-only duathlon in late October, but I'm hoping to add some more events as I see how my work schedule looks for the next 3-4 months.

      I'm thinking about that PlayTri. I'm signed up for the Grand Tri on 5/17 (Oly distance). I would have done the TexasMan, I think, if I didn't have the MS150 this weekend.
