Leading up to Race Number Two this Season

Hi Everyone,

Well, Sunday I will be racing alongside (more so behind) Wes at the Westpoint Lake Triathlon in LaGrange, GA (map).  The past month has been kinda a bear.  Sure school has gotten in the way, but we have talked down that path before.  The real issue has been my left foot.  I finally got out on it for a mile yesterday, and hit it pretty hard (7:33/mi) for the first time out again in a few weeks.  I have only run 4 times since last race.  After the 1 mile run I hit up the trainer for about 45 minutes.  Tonight I am going to try to run again.  I am most likely going to run at the gym for a mile after I get out of the pool.  I will most likely only do a mile, maybe a mile and a half depending on how it feels.

During lunch I am going to go pick up my race packet at Roswell Bicycles.  I have not been to that store in some time.  I usually go there only when I am not finding things at my usual bike stores, or if I happen to be in the area.

(Fast forward to Friday....)

Funny how that happens when you get caught up with stuff and then a day goes by.  Did some window shopping after picking up my race packet, but did not buy anything.  Took my Internal Audit exam last night and I think I did very well on the exam.  I should know the results of the exam by tomorrow.  The race packet was kinda so so, except for the fact the bag was a reusable shopping bag rather than a mini zip cord backpack.  I have about 15 of those now, I don't need anymore, thank you :)  The only other really cool thing was the nutrition swag that came in the bag.  2 packets of Hammer Gel (and not Apple Cinnamon again), 1 mini Larabar, Cliff Shot Blocks, and something else.  I don't even need to worry about nutrition for the race now :D 

Got a swim and a bike tonight.  Do all 3 tomorrow (short, high intensity), and then race day Sunday!  Looking forward to it!  Hope all of you have a great weekend!
