Why I don't want to do an olympic distance race & other things

I'm signed up for the Lake Logan international distance triathlon on August 4.  I will be skipping the run portion.  I am not the world's most natural runner.  Running a 10k after swimming and biking for 1.5 hours is a challenge when in great shape.  Right now I am not in great shape and my overall endurance is really low.  I get tired after about 1.5 hours of exercise.  Like really tired, want to stop and lie down sort of tired.  Also my foot is not 100% better. 

Anyway.  I will be doing 2-3 more sprints this season:  Mayo Lake August 11, Belews Lake September 15, and maybe Wilmington YMCA on September 22.  After that we're both going to get fit for some half-marathon and 5k racing. 

In other news, the last Old School Aquathon on July 4 had a great turnout.  We also hosted a good open water clinic last weekend.  

This Sunday we are holding one of our Powerstroke swim technique clinics.  The following weekend we have the Little Uno and Big Deuce and then go on vacation for a week.  Looking forward to that.  I keep working on athlete schedules/plans but at least it is a change of scenery.

Last night I caught Roger Waters The Wall Live tour.  It was a great show.  I am a big fan of Pink Floyd and could recite just about all the lyrics to this album.  It is more of a rock-opera show than anything but what a great musical story and performance.  For those of you who think I am a classless goon.  Here is proof:
