I'm sure you've returned to my blog daily for an update of last weekend's final triathlon of the season! Sorry to keep you waiting, I've been buy polishing my award! OH YEAH! You heard me! THIS GUY earned a spot on the podium!
I told myself there was only to be one speed today and it was FAST! I was in and out of the water in personal record time, and flew through T1 with the determination of the winner. The bike was BLAZING fast, and for the first time averaged 20 mph! LEGIT! The run worried me after the early effort, but I thrived!
The drama came as the results were posted and I was listed as 7th out of 10 in my age group. Upon further review, several athletes were listed as recording bike splits over 28 mph! I don't think so! Indeed, they had CUT THE COURSE! And...you guessed it 3 guys in my AG were DQ'd ... thus giving me THIRD PLACE among men 35-39!
Ironically, I had just posted days earlier that I would never find the podium, and should therefore seek Clydesdale races - scratch that! I can race with the big boys!
Check out the improvement over the last 3 years - wonder what I can do in 2013???
In the effort to lose more weight and stay FIT, I am committing myself for one month to tracking my food, and workouts as I embark on my first ever Fitness Program.
INTENSITY is a 4 week-8 session course at the Y that my friend April is teaching! It is sold out to 21 athletes with prerequisites for enrollment. The first class was at 5:30 a.m this past Wednesday, and as I type this 60 hours later, I am STILL sore! Squats, box jumps, and walking planks in the shadows of the street lights at this hour is all new ground for me! But, I'm up for the challenge! Bring it! Stay tuned for weight updates all month! (213 today)
