tri press downs ([email protected])

At the gym I'm at, if you do Tri press downs on one of the cables that is set up to do Cable Crossovers, or Two Arm Cable Curls the weights mark on the plates are for both sides combinded, so if you use just one side it's actually only half the weight marked on the plate.


PS Happy Belated Birthday

Race report: triathalon #2




Woke up to the sound of fast and heavy raindrops. Slept a half hour past my alarm, but it was ok. Turned the coffee maker on, washed my face, poooured my 150 calories of soaked oats in a to go cup, threw my stuff in the car, and hit the road. It was hard to choke those oats down.


Really glad I rode the course before the race. On the hour drive to the race, I not only reminded myself what i needed to do to transition quickly, but where i wanted to drink, shift, coast, and possibly eat on the bike. Also glad I knew the way to the lake... all this took the edge off my nerves. I was so psyched to get to it!


Got marked, peed a couple times, and delayed setting up transitions till the last minute cuz of the drizzle. Set stuff out in seperate garbage bags. I walked down to test the waters, the lake was warm! I got nervous bout the bumpy run from the lake to transition, I planned to walk it.



Again surprised myself at how strong I was going in the water. Got to the head of my wave with 2 others in front of me. Sighting was easy, swam freestyle the whole way except for a few strokes of sidestroke to sight once. No asthma. Hit the ground strong.



Ran up the hill, feeling my lungs closing in on me. Made it to transition, sucked on the inhaler, tucked it in my bag, and spent way too much time trying to get my arm warmers on. Almost forgot my gloves. The garbage bag transition worked to keep stuff dry, but not so great for keeping everything visible. Ran the bike, mounted flawlessly, and hit the hill hard.



Sucked on the inhaler the first chance I had. Hit it fast and hard. Forced myself to eat Had a blast. Threw the chain off at the top of the longest hill. Lost some time, but not too bad. Stayed strong the whole ride. I would have placed way better on the bike if it wasn't for that.



Cruised in on one pedal, hit the dismount running. I whipped off the arm warmers and gloves, ticked my inhaler in my top, grabbed my race belt and took off. Forgot the helmet. Woops! Pretty happy with this one.



Didn't need the inhaler. Got a side stitch on the downhill so I looked into the woods and tried to get into the zone. That worked pretty well. I thought the uphill on the way back would be so hard, but it was no prob. I ran with this guy hard to the top, but had to slow before the last slope down to the finish so I wouldn't throw up. Got it settled and came in strong.


What I did right:

Preload my lungs with inhaler.

Being familiar with the course helped, as did having my inhaler ready. Swim training was spot on. Running hills has been useful. Knowing how to organize during transition was key.


What to do better for next time:

Preload my lungs with prednisone as well as inhaler. Me and my doc for sure think I'm allergic to something in lake water.

Train swimming for distance now, technique is good enough to allow for it.

I passed people uphill on the bike, but got passed by the heavy hitters on fancy bikes, so more distance hill work is in order. Train for overall distance and speed anyways, although more speed work is gonna necessitate a different bike. I need to really work on running speed and distance. My hamstrings need to be stronger, so train for that... I think my quads are good. Winter will see me really pushing speedwork for inclines on the treadmill, although I am happy I trained downhill too. Also, next time Scott tells me to fix my derailleur, I need to fix my derailleur!


I don't have the official times with me... But I placed first in my age group and 9th overall for my distance (male and female.) Not too bad for losing my chain!
