2 Weeks To Go

Well, I've got 2 weeks left until the Odyssey Half Ironman at Lake Anna, VA and I'm getting excited! I'm anxious to see how much I've progressed over the year. I've been keeping an eye on the water temps at Lake Anna and I've seen 78 and 80. I'm hoping that it stays at 78 so that I can wear a wetsuit. We'll see.

On to the Weekend Training Update - Friday evening I joined the Richmond Tri Club for an open water swim in the James River. It was about a mile and I felt pretty good. I completed a 61 mile bike ride on Saturday and a 14.4 mile run on Sunday. I was roughly on the same courses from
two weeks ago. Great training weekend! I was a little sore in the last half mile of the run, but nothing I can't recover from. You can keep track of my training volume over on the left hand side of this column.

Congrats to all my running buddies who finished a VERY HOT
Patrick Henry Half Marathon. Amie-Anne, 2nd in your age group, 1:46:21! Awesome!

Congrats to all my Richmond Tri Club buddies who finished the Richmond Sprint Triathlon

Finally, Congrats to all the Beginner Triathletes that competed in, and finished, Ironman Louisville. And congrats to the Beginner Triathletes that competed in, and finished, Ironman Canada. You all did awesome!
