Triangle Tri & weekly training

This week's training:
swim 8,000 meters -2.5 hours
run 21 miles -3.2 hours
bike 60 miles - 3 hours
kung fu 2 hours

It was a low week for cycling just due to time issues throughout the week. This morning at the Triangle Triathlon I decided to ride my bike to the race for a few extra miles - immediately I could tell that they were not feeling up to snuff and it would be a tough day on the course (dancing at a wedding and martial arts the day before will do that to you). I had a great swim and put 30+ seconds into everyone, but it was all backwards from there and finished 8-9 minutes down on the overall winner.

The new venue is great and if you are ever in the area you should check this race out.

The next race I am targeting is the Brigantine Island triathlon in New Jersey, just north of Atlantic City. This was probably the 4th or 5th triathlon I competed in back in 1993 so it will be good to revisit.
