Bridge too far

I went out for an early morning run in the fog the other day. Here’s a fun little video I made because i know my brother loves bridges.

Getting back into the groove

Now that summer weather has finally shown up, I am finding it increasingly difficult to stay on top of my training. Changes at work have left me feeling drained and I don’t seem to have the focus I need to stay where I want in terms of training volume. Ironman 70.3 is at the end of the month and I really need to refocus over the next few weeks if I want to survive this massive race.

That said, I had a great swim this morning. I was chugging along on my last set and look down at my garmin to see that I had completed 700 meters when I was only aiming for 500. Always nice to see a little bonus like that.

Back-ordered winter?

Wow what a blizzard this morning. Its not feeling like spring anymore. Its hard to imagine my first triathlon which is only 6 days away when you have blowing snow like this.

On the plus side, I had a great swim this morning moving my average pace down to 1:52 / 100 meters. Although I feel ready to try out this triathlon thing, I’m not sure if nature agrees with me. Hopefully the snow clears and some warmer weather shows up in the next 6 days.
