8/8 - 8/14/2011

This week I was on a moderated training schedule in prep to race hard Saturday and Sunday at the Santa Cruz Sprint/International Triathlons. There was a larger prize purse this year which drew much stronger athletes and the races were furiously fast.

For my part I put myself on the limit the whole way both days but I still finished well out of the money. I suppose that there is not much I can do about that...but it is getting to be a little dejecting having my ass handed to me at every race, even at the small local ones. It is hard to know if I am doing everything that I can to maximize my potential but I do have some ideas about streamlining and improving my training. The unfortunate reality may be that I am simply not cut out for or genetically built to be a top tier triathlete, but for the mean time I still plan on following through on my attempt to make it a career.
