8 mile run with some moderate wind.

After 3 miles I came across Jim and we ran the next 3.5 together. It was good to catch up with him.

Another long day of classes. Then I drove over to the Tramway Road which is a very steep road and ran up 2 miles and then back down. My 2 uphill miles where around 10:30 pace and the 2 back down were around 6:15. Honestly, the uphill miles felt much more comfortable. It was so steep on the way down that it was hard to control my speed and my toes jammed into the front of my shoes and it hurt pretty good.

24 mile bike ride with Blake this morning. It felt good to get on the bike again. That was my first ride since my half IM last October.

I did hit a rock and puncture my rear tire and have to change it on the ride. That is the part of biking I hate.

I didn't feel particulary energetic when I took off this morning, but was a bit surprised when I realized how fast I had been running the first couple miles so I pushed the pace a bit at the end and finished my 6 mile run with AP 6:58

It was a beautiful morning.  That probably had something to do with the faster pace today.

About an hour bike ride with Blake this morning. I can't believe how nice the weather is still. One of these days, soon, I'm going to wake up and it will be blazing hot out. 

I'm going to do a little local sprint tri in 2 weeks, so I need to get in a bit more biking and swiming here soon.
