9/20 - 9/26/2010

Even though I just got back to training I really wanted to do the SCTri because that is where it all started and so many people I know are involved with it. It is such a fun and friendly community event and it was ok with me that I was not going to do as well as last year. Catching up with old friends, racing on my home turf, supporting a good community event and seeing friends challenging themselves and excelling was so good for me.

I am fairly sure that I ate too much for dinner the night before and that I need to do more abdominal work because I got some decent cramps that really plagued the run. I definitely charged the hills much too hard on the bike. I need to find a better pair of racing flats and goggles as what i have been going with until now are not great.

It was a good result considering and an awesome event to be a part of.

9/13 - 9/19/2010

This was the first week in a while now that it feels like I really put mu nose down and got back to reagularish training. Lots of soreness and energy swings and hunger oddities but by the end of the week I felt like I was getting back into the swing of things. I am working a lot more so my feet are exhausted but I am hopeful that I will be able to handle it. My heart and lungs feel like they are still intact but I lost some of my strength and durability.
