Back to Triathlons

This weekend I completed a mini-triathlon at the local gym. I'm calling it a mini since the distances don't line up within the typical race categories. The distances were 200 yd swim, 10 mile bike on a spin bike and 3 mile run on the treadmill. In my enthusiasm I started the swim at sprint speed.

I forgot how much swimming hurts if attempting to sprint the entire…See More

Couch to 5k: Starting at beginner

After JFK 50 miler last November I was excited for the 2019 year. My training went great over last winter,   and I was planning for a late season 100 miler. But it all went to hell in July. I displaced my knee cap in mid-July from a random accident. My older kid accidentally tumbled into my leg while sitting on her bike while we were at Good Neighbors Meeting House. My foot was pinned by the bottom of the wheel and the upper part of the wheel hit right at my knee joint. Take 70 lbs times the…See More
