AM - Tipton Lakes Sprint Triathlon - run relay leg.  Fielded a team from work for this very fun and well run event.  Jane Twaddle swimming, Nathan on bike, and me on the run.  Great job by Nathan and Jane!  My run effort was definitely there, but my legs were not doing well this morning.  

Jogged 3.75mi. over to the race - 29:46. 

Enjoyed all the hoopla and fun that goes with triathlons and getting to see a lot of people I know and have really come to like.  Columbus, IN is really a surprising endurance sport mecca :)  Lots of good runners/bikers/swimmers. 

Anyway, WU ~1mi. and then struggled through the mile 2 and 3 of another humid heavy legged 5k.  Check out these splits: 5:48, 6:13, 6:27, 0.1 - 0:32.4  -  Yikes!  At least a fellow member of QuaffON! handed me a beer at the finish line!! 5k Race - 19:00  -  I also screwed it up for our team and put the chip time bracelet on my wrist (ankle), so I had to show the results people my time on Garmin for them to enter our team result and my run split.  8th place team - Good job team INDOT :)

3.71 mi. jog back home - 28:30

PM2 - 8pm easy ~10 mi.: 9.7 mi. - 1:24:02 -- 90 mile week!!
