Happy First weekend of August friends. :hug:

ugh... so i think I finally paid the price for my aversion to H2O
put me down for a broken up 2 .. with stops for calf stretches at 1, 1.5, 1.75 and
finally at 2, with a mental comment of shut it down sparky before something blows up.
so I'm also thinking that an average daily water consumption of less than 16 oz probably
has room for improvement... and the fact that I was looking at my water bottle at work
and literally had to verbalize to myself "pick up the damn water and drink it" may indicate
that I have deep seeded issues that may require some sort of intervention :shocker!::meh:

Peace
Dan (who never stops being a work in progress)

More on the shoes later

Well it sounds like you’ve got a handle on it at least!

I’ve resorted to water flavoring. Otherwise I don’t hydrate enough.  If water isn’t doing it for you, find something else that will keep you hydrated.

Lol ... but they say that that is actually a diuretic :cool:
Aka “if not for whiskey the Irish would rule the world”:grin:

12 miles towing both kids in the bike trailer. It was fun though I assume my run tomorrow may not be haha
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-04 8:20 PM
Glad the bike was fun, but yeah I’m betting you’re right about the run tomorrow.

Anthony did his first triathlon today. He rocked it, coming in 10th overall. :cool:  I got 7.3 incremental miles in this morning. I ran his warm up and cool down with him and ran when he was on the bike and run, coming back to cheer him (and take pictures) at transitions. :happy:

That’s awesome! What distance??
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-05 10:33 AM
Sprint. 1/4 mile swim, 12 bike, 3.4 run.
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-08-05 4:03 PM
Very nice!
Parent - - By Baggins [us] Date 2018-08-06 5:28 AM
Nice .. he must have nailed the bike portion to do that well
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-06 8:30 AM
He held his own on the bike.  All the cyclists ahead of him had $$$$ bikes.  He said they would pass him like he was standing still.  Anthony didn't even have straps for his pedals, let alone click ins.  He cleaned up on the run.  He had the fastest run.  :cool:

The real feel was 90 by the time I got home. I felt like I was going to blow up but oddly I felt pretty strong today. 11 mile at 7:01 overall pace for me :-)
Parent - By Baggins [us] Date 2018-08-05 8:44 AM
Nicely done .. rock solid pace!
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-05 11:09 AM
Yikes that’s hot!  Great job in the heat!
Parent - - By spiritbear [us] Date 2018-08-05 12:55 PM
3 miles at the track. We didn’t go until 9:30 a.m. and it was already really hot. Surprised I managed a 10:41 average pace.

Happy Birthday Michelle! :hug:
Parent - - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-08-05 4:03 PM
Nice job!

And yes, happy birthday MD!!
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-05 6:27 PM
Thanks!  It’s been a really nice weekend. :happy:
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-05 6:27 PM
Great job!  It got hot early here too.

Thanks!  :hug:

Jen and I picked up a 40 mile bike ride on the river trail this morning. I took her out on the road last week for 55 hilly miles. I promised her a flat route this week. The river trail is the only way to do that around here. We still ended up taking a detour up a pretty formidable when it turned out part of the trail was washed out from all the rain we've had. That was fun!
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-08-05 4:04 PM
Wow that’s no joke!
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-05 6:28 PM
Awesome!
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-05 6:29 PM
8.4 on the mill tonight. I had to run off some of the pizza and cake. :laugh:
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-08-05 8:20 PM
You amaze me. Once I go down the road of pizza or cake, there’s no running that day. So impressive!
