Sorry I haven’t updated in a while.  In the time that I have spent not updating my blog, I registered for my USA Triathlon annual membership.  Albeit a bit late, I think the value will add up to the race fees I’d end up paying for the next 4 or so races I have to register for.

Upcoming Races

TriRock: Asbury Park is on my list of races to do next, and then I have 3 consecutive race weekends planned for September.  I don’t know if that’s a good idea or not, but I’m willing to hear your opinion on the subject of doing consecutive races in such a manner.

Sick Again

In addition to these fun things, I had a firefighter training day last week during which I got good and sweaty.  On the way home, the vent for the fire engine’s air conditioning\fan was blowing on my head.  Within the next couple days I started up with a sore throat, congestion, and sneezing.  Turns out I gave myself a summer cold.  I had not worked out for a couple days beforehand and I’m going on a bit over a week now without training.  There’s a bit over a couple weeks until TriRock so I think I’ll be OK.  I should be able to get some training in before the race.

Recent Training

Before I got sick I managed a couple training sessions.  I did a 3.3 run mile all over my town in 28m 22s, a 7.4mi bike ride also in 28m 22s before a thunderstorm, and a 600yd swim in 9m 16s (swimming time only).  Wish I could swim that fast in my races, but I think taking rest breaks helps my time.

That’s all I have for now.  Catch you later!
