Tri training report for 3/10/13

Yack! Had to slog out an 18 mile run today to keep on course with my Team World Vision Boston Marathon training plan. That was after swimming one mile at the YMCA, the teaching Group Cycling. Luckily, training pard, GVCer and triathlete Danielle G followed me around Lake Zorinsky on her studded-tire cross bike, packed to the gills with sports drinks, nutrition, cameras, rain gear. Luckily, we didn't need the rain gear as the storms never materialized. It was deliciously cool during the run, although I did start to run out of gas near mile 16. Had been holding a sub-8 minute mile pace for most of the run, then ended up with 8.01. Doggone it. I'll be happy if I can hold 8 minute miles during Boston. That would easily qualify me again, but I doubt I'll go back. $$$.

Goals for Boston:

  1. Finish
  2. Enjoy the atmosphere
  3. Don't cramp up
  4. Finish in top half of my age group. No slugs here so that's not bad
  5. Better goal, finish in top quarter of age group. 
So, follow my training here and at our Greenstreet Velo Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/greenstreetvelo

El Guapo, deep-fried and not-so-supreme at the moment.
