Getting the week started with a good workout just feels good.
Did 40 mins in the pool followed by a 40 min run. Training for the Utah Half is now underway.
I did the Aqua Triathlon (sprint – 350 m swim, 12 mile bike, 3.16 mile run) here in Provo yesterday. It was my first time doing this event and I will do it again next year. Really enjoyed it, especially because it is about 1 mile from my house.
I finished 35th/158 among males, 11th/37 in [...]
Fun 30-mile ride today up Provo Canyon. Hadn’t done this ride in a while.
Got in about 55 miles on the bike this week and about 20 miles of running.
Enjoyed this tweet this morning from @jfriel. : )
Have a healthy weekend!

It really stinks because as I have been breathing really deeply to get enough air it has made [...]
Tonight is date night and I’m pumped. Wife and I are going to the rec center to hit the pool for a good workout. We haven’t been able to get to the pool together to workout in a few years. Babysitter is set and I finally get to swim with my “coach.”
She swam in high [...]
Ironman Hawaii is tomorrow. Good luck to all the racers. Here’s a video previewing the race. Don’t watch it all (I didn’t, it’s like 16 mins) but the first few mins will give you a feel for it:
I just signed up for the “Turkey Tri” sprint-distance triathlon on November 6th. This event was the first triathlon I ever did… way back in 2007. I’ve done this event every year since then, except for last year when my foot was injured.
Such a fun event and I’m pumped to set a new PR. What [...]
