    good Blustery day ride 25.25 mi 01:30 16.8mph pace

    Another easy effort ride w/ Gerryl. I just feel tired today so this ride was perfectly fine with me.

      yes! what a great run! i feel like you had just decided from the get-to that it was going to hurt and it didn't even matter. you were driven. how satisfying to reel people in and not let them pull away. that's a killer fast last mile for the whole race. ouch. the work has been working. all those bricks and transition runs you've been doing. so funny about the speedos too haha... congratulations on a great day! season is off to a strong start!

      Yesssss! I loved seeing the results on FB and love to read the write up here. It's so impressive that you just went with it, decided that you were going to embrace the suck of the pain cave and just went ahead and did it. Well done!!!

    good TexasMan Oly Tri - BIKE 24.8 mi 01:20 18.5mph pace

    My legs felt great out of the water so after getting my wetsuit stripped off, I ran (not jogged) to transition. I was out of the water, shoe & helmeted up in just over 2 minutes, not too bad.

      Part of that "extra distance" could also have been you going backwards a little bit. Tabatha made it sound like there was some strong current pushing back. Extra credit!

      I was going to say the same thing that Ann did - I get wonky on a small chop in a pond, you are awesome at having no issues getting out of the water. Well done surviving this swim!
