First brick ever.... and all I can say is ouch! This is going to be much tougher than expected. Got in a 47 mile ride followed by a 2 mile run. The run was the worst of my life. Never felt so heavy, slow and hurtful. Think it is time to start reorg'ing my training plan. Need more running... oh and a swim or two would be good too.
Ride = 2hrs & 24 min. Run = 22min. Daily total = 166 Total = 288

It's On!

In the words of some great philosopher...
It's ON Like Donkey Kong!!
The now seemingly annual get in shape competition for an actual competition started yesterday.
This years actual competition = 1/2 IronMan on Sept. 12th.
This years pre-cometition competition, is time based instead of mileage based to account for the variety of sports that need to be trained for. In addition the diciplnes are weighted to even out effort vs time issue. Biking = 1:1, Running = 2:1, and Swimming = 3:1
So far.... Super fast ride yesterday. Over 20 miles @ 22.3 avg. Total time 56 min. Three mile run @ lunch today, pushing Gavin (there should be extra points for that!!) Total time 33 min.
Total points so far = 122
Game on Boys!
