How's this for a hodge-podge (sp?) post?! Pics of my latest obsession (Deck!) Pics from my vacation (yes, photography is a passion of mine) and ramblings about my upcoming race: The Strawberry Fields Triathlon (Olympic Dist.)
This Sunday is just my second Tri - although I feel like I'm not quite that green! I've been working pretty hard on the bike for the last month or so. I must say I've falled off the wagon running a bit - track work once a week and a medium run or two a week and that's it....Swimming so-so. That's the one sport I'm decent at so I tend to neglect it. So without further adieu...my goals.
Swim 1500m: 27:30ish (1:50/100m) - should be pretty doable, no faster than my first tri back in March
Bike 40k: 1:14:30ish (20mph) - up from 18.5, more comfy on the bike, easier course
Run 10k: 54:20ish (8:45/mile) - I'd be more ambitious here but know myself and if I go out to hard after the bike I'm done. I'll start out here and if I feel good I'll go harder!
With the transitions I'm thinking between 2:40 and 2:45, about 6-10 minutes off my first. I'd definitely like to go sub 2:45 and possibly 2:40 if it goes really well. We'll see!
Without further adieu, here's my favorite pics from my trip up North...

And here are the promised pics of the newly completed deck! :)
Oh yeah, the lens I shot with (Canon 10-22) makes it look much, much bigger!
Will letcha know how Sunday goes! Hopefully I'm not too sore from hauling all that wood!
