feeling kinda bla-ggy

Not much to post.

Ambition is on holiday I believe.

A few interesting events have occurred:

1.      Lost a Spinergy wheel…  it flew off my roof rack while I was going about 70…
My expression as the realization of my stupidity sinks in
2.      School is back in

3.      Have broken the century mark cycling numerous times this summer
I think Judi is into it for the tanning opportunities
4.      My youngest kid has been sick

5.      Came in DFL by 30 minutes…  that’s no typo…  30 minutes!!! In a 2.5 mile open water swimming race

6.      Rode 120 miles in and around the town where I grew up…  talk about your long ride down memory lane

Gadsden County Florida
At this point I’m not sure if I’m finished with triathlons for the year or not…

Can’t decide if I want to race again…  or simply aim at the fall running races

That totally sucks losing a wheel

At least you did the 2.5 mile race, more then 99% of the general population

it's all about pace said...

What a bummer about losing the wheel! I would be pissed! 2.5 miles is a long way to swim, so who cares where you come in... Nice work on those long rides. I always like the tan too, so don't poke too much fun. Keep up the good work.

Bummer about that wheel - guess that means you can buy a new toy though!

If you aren't feeling the tri race mojo, then don't force it. If that means continuing to train, but not race, keep it up. If it means focusing on running for a while, do that. Do what you want - otherwise, its not fun.

that's what I'M sayin'!!! Fun training + getting strong + = less race stress and more fun : )

there are those who can, and those who won't. sorry about the wheel :-( and the sick kid... but that's quite the ride!

Spinergy. Been there. I had a pair of the four spoked wheels. Lean my bike against the trunk. Got to talking to some friends. Got in the car and back up and then...what did I just run over. Lets just say you can replace the spokes.
