thanks guys!


The race today went ok. No awards for me this time. I wasn't feeling well before the race and actually I still don't feel well. It was a really cold and rainy day. Time was 26:34 for a 3.21 course - slower than my races so far this season but I honestly feel it was the best I could have raced today. I don't think I could have done any better given the circumstances so I am happy with the way I did. Going to try to relax the rest of the day and get ready for tomorrow. hoping I am feeling better for that one.

Thanks lobster I did feel better and run better on sunday!! I spent almost all of saturday in bed recovering.



5k race - got 1st place in my age group with a time of 25:30 - ok with the time since it was 34 degrees and rainy and about .75 to a mile was on wet grass. Felt better racing today. Looking forward to racing in some warmer conditions for sure! I ran with a skull cap and gloves on!


Didn't do a recovery wod and my legs are tired. My heel is sore. I need to ice and stretch and roll. Going to do upper body strength stuff today.

Racing 5ks back to back again this weekend and just feeling a little beat up so kept it lighter today and tomorrow will be a rest day. I will go and stretch and do some myofacial release to prep for the races.


Got my inov8 trail sneaks today and I need to send them back they are just too tight which is weird becuase they are the same size as my racing flats which are also inov8s.

Officially registered for the duathlon and Triathlon today as well as some smaller 5k and 5 mile races. Have most of my race season completely filled up now. Hope to get out to some bike shops this weekend and start working on getting a road bike. I will just ride my trek mountain bike until then. Also need to go and get a real swimsuit and register at a local pool so I can start doing some swimming workouts. I say real because a have a ton of bikinis but I doubt they are going to cut it for lap work. And I think Im going to invest in a garmin to help with all of these workouts.

Yay!! What are the distances of your du and tri?

You are so awesome!


the du is a 3 mile run 16 mile bike (hilly course) and 3 mile bike


The tri is olympic distance so 1.5K lake swim - 40K bike - 11 k run (also hilly)



mary, check out sierratradingpost.com for cheap lap suits. serious good deals last time i checked. i have a $10 coupon i can hook you up with if you want anything, just let me know. i personally think it's better to get your tri-top in person though.


@ viva - I just got a nike suit today while I was out shopping before I got this message! I need to work on my wetsuit next. I'd love to have some kool vegan gear. I swear I've seen pictures of giacomo in Vegan bike shorts.





5K race today went well. What a course. very hilly! They were steep! They were long! and they were many!! It started with a steep downhill and continued with rolling up and down hills the whole way until the finish by going back up the steep hill you start at! Time was 25:20. Im happy with it considering the hills. My heel is really sore so I am icing it down tonight and hoping I can run on it tomorrow.

Also road a redline which was ok. and an orbea I didn't really care for.

Going to another bike shop tomorrow.


Trying to decide between a Garmin Forerunner 305 and 405. UGH!! decisions decisions..

VEGA sport with Coconut water - first time trying this before a race. felt ok but it was a short race so I don't think it made a big difference. I was just tired this morning so I thought I would give it a shot.

thanks guys!


The du is June 20th and the tri is August 22. I am going to still use a mix of crossfit and crossfit endurance for the du and tri races. I will do crossfit wods 6 days a weeks and then I will breakout the Crossfit Endurance workouts amoung the three disciplines so 2 runs 2 bikes and 2 swims a week. 1 day will be a rest day but everything else will be doubles. Thats the plan for now so it will still be the same style workouts there will just be biking and swimming and not rowing now. I might have to change the mix up a bit if i find myself significantly weaker in one area.


racing another 5k today. It's been raining and night and is still raining and will probably be raining for the race. Still going. Time probably won't be as good with the conditions.
