Time flies when you're busy so it's been a while to get a blog post up....at least this time of season is a bit boring in terms of racing so we haven't missed much.
As the title suggests time has been flying by and we are only 2 months from the first triathlon of the year. Guess it means that I better ramp up the training a bit, which so far this year has been a bit spotty. Nothing real big so far and a few weeks of not a lot add up to feeling a bit underprepared for the start of March. This has been a combination of the store being busy as well as "regular" work....all good, but busy! The good thing is that the major A race for the season isn't until late August at IM Louisville so I have some time to ease into things.
So what have we done so far for 2013:
Bike: 27hrs 48mins 470miles
Run: 8hrs 15mins 68miles
Swim: Zippy, nothing, nowt
Total: 36hrs 03mins 538 miles
Bike: 17hrs 01mins 299miles
Run: 12hrs 07mins 99miles
Swim: 1hr 45mins 3.26miles
Total: 30hrs 53mins 401 miles
You can see nothing spectacular on those numbers, I certainly felt that the bike was progressing well in January with some good power numbers. February took a little step back with a week off the bike for vacation and a jaunt out to Denver for the North American Handmade Bike Show. You will also see a complete lack of swimming which was derailed in January due to pesky moles on my back and then the travel in February (and I would rather be running or cycling!)
March is looking better so far so it is all gradually getting back on track and by IM in August I should be rocking :-)
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
- You have to make the best of work trips and a $6 ticket to see the @memgrizz counts as a good deal in my book! . . . . . #memphis #grizzlies #IFB #nba2k19
