It's Been A While

To say the least, my triathlon year has been a disappointment.  When 2010 arrived, I had great plans and was very much looking forward to a long season of training and racing.  Well, my hamstring had a different plan.  It seemed that no amount of stretching and "babying-it" could keep me running pain-free.  I ran St. Anthony's very slowly and immediately decided that I was not fit enough for Florida 70.3.  With that dream gone - I pretty much abandoned any hope for spring and summer races.  That's the bad news.

Now for the good news - I have run 5 times in the last few days and I'm pain-free!  Well, almost pain-free.  My hammy is fine - it's now my lungs that are screaming for me to stop!

I'm now looking forward to some racing in the fall.  I have a long way to go to get back in racing shape - but as long as I keep my goals in mind, I will be fine:

  • Don't sink during the swim.
  • Don't fall during the bike
  • Don't stop running until you go under the big balloon thing!


  1. Dang dude... last post Feb. 21?
    Oh, don't overdue the running.... it's way over rated anyway, especially in IM or half events.
