Mixed Results....


So this is how I felt after my workout today.

Supposedly this is the week where I "taper" for my upcoming race in the Gorge. The problem is... with the complete lack of consistent training over the last month... that would mean my "taper" would consist of sitting on the couch and eating a big bowl of fat! YES!!!! Today I did a 40 min bike followed immediately by a 20 min run... both in my aerobic zones. I covered 12.7 miles on the bike with a HR of 142 and then 2.5 miles on the run with a HR of 152. My back didn't really bother me in the least... until I was whipping off my cycling shoes and putting on my running shoes! Apparently my back doesn't really take to twisting and bending at the moment! SO... what's my plan for the race? SLOW transitions. Easy. No problem. Piece of cake.

Speaking of that race... I can't BELIEVE how much its grown! Last year was the first year... and my AG topped out at 19 or so. I think that number has tripled! VERY cool! It ought to be a complete BLAST!

On a different note: It's really fun to watch the shoutbox on Triscoop these days! Ironman Wisconsin is coming up this Sunday and the "rivalry" between Jetpack and Texifornia has reached a fever pitch! Its all in good fun but it certainly does add a certain something entertaining! BOY do I wish I could be there to cheer them on! Sitting on the sidelines at whatever level just SUCKS!

Breathe....

Have fun with your race man! I hear you about training consistency...I've been the same way because of too much travel...makes you feel, blah!

Can I borrow that pic to use in my blog, because I feel that way sometimes but if I use your pic then it's not really me that's tired. :)

Hope your race went well.
