Since my last post which was just 8 weekends ago I have raced 3 more times including 3 out of the last 4 weekends. A Sprint Triathlon, an Olympic distance Triathlon, and a Duathlon. I came in 4th, 7th, and 5th in those 3 events overall. I am consistently average. I am not "fit" right now to Win races BUT that is coming.
In the 2 Triathlons I had a 2nd fastest swim and 1st fastest swim and 4th fastest run in both. Now if my bike was top 5, I would be winning these races. However, my bike legs are failing me (temporarily). Then, in the Duathlon, I had the 2nd fastest 5k, horrible bike, and 4th fastest 3k after. So I am close. Very close.
Now, I start a new job tomorrow that I am so very happy about, and thankful. I cant wait to start this new journey. My training will change only in the fact that I will be more structured. My other job created a little too much stress as well so that will be nice to not have to bring that home with me to my ever-so supporting wife who just is amazing. She goes to every race. She listens to me when I need to vent. She tells me to get my butt out the door to get a work out in. She does all this while working many hours as a realtor and taking care of our 2 children and the 3rd is 9 weeks away! Pretty impressive.
Anywho, I am ready. I am pumped. I am blessed. We all are blessed. This new chapter awaits. I have 3 more races on tap before Gabriel is born. Hopefully I can get on the podium for a couple of them. In the mean time, keep grinding.
Thank you Bonk Breaker and Skechers. Seriously can not train and recovery with out my bonk breaker nutrition and Skechers shoes.
