I have had lots going on since my last update and I am a little embarrassed at how much time has passed. Let see I have had two daughters graduate, one from college and one from high school. My youngest daughter had her high school soccer tournament, which they took first in state in and I had a week long class in Chicago that took weeks out of my training plan. So I fell behind.
My training has been ok. I have tried to follow my schedule as close as I can but as mentioned, I have missed a few days here and there. I did attempt my first triathlon, the Milkman Tri in Madison but really should not have. It was a disaster from a results perspective but successful in gauging where I am at in my training. I need to spend more time in the open water as that was made painfully clear as I did not complete the swim. I did learn that I cannot cut the time short on race weekend and need to be fully prepared the night before. I will be scheduling vacation days before races going forward. Finally I learned alot about transition preparation and race day nutrition. So in the end I failed in the water but learned alot for the future.
