Your times are great, IMO. Even the run/walk. There isn't a lot of downhill in that course so you must have really been pushing the whole way! And isn't that the fastest you've biked that course?

Something to think about: running with cramped/tight calves in a half marathon is what tore my calf muscle. An injury I am STILL DEALING WITH 8.5 months later! I think it was really smart of you to walk the uphill and flat parts.

Marie are you doing the aqua-bike still?

Yep! I'm a little scared about the bike. It will be the longest I've biked and I will do it after swimming 2.4 miles but I'm feeling pretty strong right now and I think I'll make the cutoffs. (I'll have just under 9 hours to finish the bike assuming my swim time is in its normal range.)

There are a lot more people in my AG this year so I think a podium finish is definitely out of the question, but I'd really like to finish in 9 hours or less and that's pretty questionable, too. Pout.

Scott - I just wanted to say Congratulations! What a great accomplishment to put under your belt! You and Marie keep me inspired. I got a new (used) bike this past weekend, and I'm up to 3 miles - very rusty, but enjoying my time on it so far!

That's awesome, I hope you are enjoying the bike riding.
It is my favorite part of the triathlon.
It's usually the longest part, and while I don't excel at it, it is the part that I suck at the least  Tongue

I really enjoy going for group rides with the cycling club.  They turn them into a social event.
We usually ride half way (whatever the distance is) and then stop at a coffee shop or local restaurant and have a morning or afternoon meal, rest and visit for a while, then turn around and ride back.

Now that is a real test of your eating.  You certainly have to make good choices, because that food can and will sit like a rock in your stomach.  Especially when you have to climb hills on the bike.  I have made the bad choice a couple times and paid the price for that.  Even with that, just getting out and enjoying the countryside and the weather make it a great day.

It's exercise without the exercise.  Unless it's a very hard ride, you don't even notice that you are exercising.
That's my favorite type of exercise.

It is my favorite part of the triathlon.
Mine too. I always say the worst bike ride is still better than tons of other workouts I do.

Scott - each October, we have a cycling club here that rides from Nashville to Lynchburg - it's the Jack Daniels ride. I'm not trained to do it this year, but it's my goal to do it next year. We have several here at my office that are doing it this year, so as you said, it will be a great time to just enjoy the countryside and have a good time with friends. Let's hope I'm ready by next year!
