Commodore coming out of the water. Preatty cool eh? I was peeling wet suits so I yanked out the camera when I saw him coming (sorry to those other athletes I missed while filming :})
This video is part of a much larger Tri Geek Ironman Florida video the I finally finished this week. Should have the rest of it up in a few days.
I was watching an Xterra race yesterday on ABC. Preatty cool, Mad Mel finished first as usual. As I watched them pound out the trail run I just looked at Trimama and said "at that point both IT bands blow out of the side of my leg and gush blood like a Quentin Terrantino movie!" Needless to say,I have still been having some issues with my knees when running, but this week was different.
Tuesday 1400 yard swim, 40 minute run, no problems
Wednesday 2.5 hour spin on the bike, long but good.
Thursday 3100 yard swim with speed work. Felt great.
Saturday 1 HOUR 45 MINUTE RUN!!! On treadmill, no knee problems...Yea!
So that was a very encouraging week. I cannot lie, Wildflower cometh and the gulp you just heard means I need to get serious on sticking to my training plan!
Have a good week from your occasional poster :(
