Cross train/ Easy run day today:

AM: Mock Sprint Tri

The weather was very nice this morning for all things cardio - warm enough for swimming, cool enough for running (not too far, though :) )

Put on the hydration pack, full of water and headed over to pool

800m - 40 lengths in the neighborhood pool (deserted, thankfully) - 24:36.  I was all backstroke on this one - I can't breath correctly for freestyle :)

changed into bike/dry shorts, threw on the hydration pack, and hopped on the bike which was chained up outside the pool - 17.9 mi. bike - 60:38 from neighborhood pool to Mill Race Park on People Trails and back over down county roads. Back over to chain the bike up at Starbucks :)  -- what a great transition area :)

Straight in to run - slooow run, but with about 15 lbs of hydration pack with other stuff in it.  Also, I'm still hurting very much from yesterdays races, so I made myself a deal - if I actually completed swim and bike in decent enough efforts, I would def. go real slow on the run.  3.1 mi. with added wt. - 28:22.

Looks like my Sprint Tri time without transitions, would be - 1:53:36 - putting about last place in last years Columbus Sprint Tri :)

Then I got some Starbucks treats...

easy bike ride back home: 4.33 mi. - 18:26

PM: easy 3.17mi. after dinner - 26:28

AM: 800m lap swimming in the pool, 1mi. easy jog

PM: Seymour 5k race - I'm not even gonna count this as a race entry - about 80 people in the race - 2 or 3 high school kids that broke 20 min.  Ran first 2 miles in about 6 minute pace and then got really sick to my stomach and slowed down to a 6:45 pace.  Time was like 19:3?  To bad - would've won the thing it if not for the stomach thing - the 1st place kid ran about 19:00.

About 0.5 mile warmup and 2mi. CD.
