starting back

Hey all . . . .
As you know, I did some bike riding that week after my marathon and I also ran an easy 10k with Susan. Now my week of laziness is over!

I ran 6 miles at 8:30 pace on Tuesday afternoon. Surprisingly, my legs were still a little bit sore. Probably from the bike riding last week. Tonight I was supposed to do a 30 mile bike ride but we canned it doe to weather. However, I did go home and practice for my next big event. I am going to try doing a beginner's triathlon. 200m swim, 8.5 mile bike ride and 2 mile run. The bike and run distances aren't a problem. I'm just not sure about the swimming. I will be swimming the next several days. My triathlon is next Saturday, so I have 9 days to get ready. Pretty stupid, huh?

Tonight I did a 8 mile bike ride and a 2 1/2 mile run. I was trying to figure out the best way to transition from bike to run . . . . not that easy to do. And the legs didn't like going from the bike to running. I'll figure it out.

Don't sweat the swim. You should be able to swim 200m in 4 or 5 minutes without a problem. The rest of the event will be an all out sprint for you. I suspect that you are good enough shape to do much better in the swim than you think.

Good luck,
