NOTES-



After a crazy week at work, I was so glad it was finally the weekend. While on the computer yesterday, I found an organized ride on Sunday which is only 10 minutes from my house. I looked at my options and decided on the 55 mile ride. Choices were 20, 30, 45, 55, 85, or 102. My race that I am working for in September has a ride section of 36 miles.

So now the length of my run for today was up in the air. I haven't figured this multisport stuff out yet but the one article I read advised to run long only every 2-3 weekends. My goal became 8 and I ended up with a comfortable 8.75. Luckily today the sun stayed in and the heat stayed lower.

Next weekend is the USAT Mideast Tri/Du Championship in Sylvania,Ohio. The list released today shows only 2 others in my age group. After tomorrow's ride, I'll back it down some.

I received my volunteer confirmation e-mail from Ironman Louisville. I am so excited. I hope I can meet some of the bloggers that I have been watching train. I'll be working at the first transition until 930am then at the finish line from 7pm until the end at midnight. I'll be glad to support anyone that needs any help.

RUN : 8.75 Miles / 2:01
