Exactly one month from now. How is your training going?

The 8th Annual, Pittsburgh Triathlon & Adventure Race Race on Sunday, July 17, 2005. The Pittsburgh Triathlon and Adventure Race site is www.pittsburghtriathlon.com.
Sign up online and see the details.

The Olympic-distance triathlon consists of a 1.5 K swim in the Allegheny River, a 40 K bike along the I-279 HOV lanes and a 10 K run along the Three Rivers Heritage
Trail.

Adventure race will be slightly different this year, starting with a 2-mile canoe/kayak then a 12-mile bike, and 3.2 mile run following a shorter version of the triathlon course.

USA Triathlon sanctions the event.

I'm considering the race. If I choose to run, I'll try to get last place, just like I did in the recent senate race. But, if either Diven or Fontana enter too -- then I'll try harder and not opt to get beat -- again -- by either one of those guys.

More workout log stuff.

July 1: swam 20 x 50 with Zoomers. Quick pace and some sprinting.

July 2: Rode for one hour with Erik at the Highland Park bike oval. Did about 25 laps.

Swam before movie night for 45 minutes: Did 500 swim + 500 pull + 500 with zoomers, 50 cool down.

July 3: rode with Grant on the trail. His first time. I tried to figure out how to get into the toes of my bike with sneakers quickly.
