RSR 38 – The start of the trilogy races

By Skip

Episode number 38 of my triathlon training diary….

Tomorrow starts the first of the Trilogy racing series for me.  This should be pretty exciting as it is one of the shorter sprint triathlons and should be a pretty fast race.  In the past two weeks I have been coming off the “high” from the Alcatraz race….. it will be very hard to top that race, trust me.  On the other hand, my competitive side loves these shorter races as that is what I am better at.  Recently I have swam faster, biked faster and ran faster than I ever have before.  My run endurance might not be back up to what I want it to be but it is slowly getting there.  By the end of August I should be running a 6:00 pace again with any luck.  By the end of the year?  Well, my goal is to get that down to a 5:45-5:50 pace!

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
