Thursday-long swim, 2500 meters. 250 meter splits (5 laps) 5:46, 6:00, 6:03, 6:04, 6:10, 6:12, 6:06, 6:10, 6:13, and 6:24. 1:01:13 total.....Ave 6:07. Longer than the race distance, very comfortable with that pace and more consistent. Felt good.
Saturday-Brick bike/run. 51.03 miles in 3:37, 9:48 T1, and run 7.14 miles in 1:24. Total 5:11:56. I never thought I would ride from my house to boulder city. I even took the long way home to make sure I found some hills to climb. I felt great on the bike. No back pain, no fatigue. T1 took a lot longer than I normally would have. The run got very hot. I felt strong and converted to running legs in a about 1.5 to 2 miles. My longest run after a ride that distance. I feel ready. I am anxious for it to be here.
Sunday (today)-Long run, 10 miles. I would have liked to go a little longer but the way the schedule has gone it wasn't in the cards. I will settle for a 68 miles this weekend. There are no time results as there were some technical difficulties. I was sore and tired but got them in.
Im ready, lets do this already. I have one more brick next weekend a swim and a bike. Hopefully the weather will stay consistent and mild. I have a low to moderate week and begin a slight taper. QUOTE:

Just thought I would mix it up.
