Sunday July 15th. Race Day
Travel and lack of motivation caught up with me the 4th-14th.
Today's race was
800 meter Swim
11 mile Bike
3 mile Run

Time was 1:21.

I consider myself now motivated.

Are your bike intervals done on a trainer? Do you recommend a specific trainer that you use?

I'm starting my search for one...... I'd believe it help make my bike training easier-my work schedule doesn't always allow for early morning rides when it's cool!

LMNgetfit -

I do my rides outside whenever I can. So, the intervals mentioned were done on the road. I do have a trainer Minoura that I use if the weather is bad but that is on the off days that it gets cold in Texas or if I can't get a ride in during the daylight hours. Riding on a trainer is really boring so I avoid whenever I can. My understanding is that rollers are far better for indoor training but I have yet to use them.

Thanks for your feedback....... I'm enjoying reading about the different aspects in tri training! Impressive that you do the longer triathlons! I'm at the sprint distance now and find them challenging!
Good luck this year!

You haven't posted in a while. How have things been going for you? I want to keep in touch and network with forum members here. I will be visiting Austin in November. It'd be helpful to get some suggestions of places to go, things to do, restaurants to eat at.

thanks,

-Dylan
