Oh, dear tri blog, I am sorry to desert you for so long!

I am two race reports behind with a third race on the horizon. Though I am not known for the brevity of my prose, I shall make this quick & dirty.

Cutest Damn Tri in Texas - Texas Ski Ranch - July 27, 2008
Swim:8:02, 2:40/100m pace
T1: 2:22
Bike: 43:07, 15.45mph pace
T2: 1:39
Run: 24:36, 12:18 pace
Total: 1:19:46

My overall time was 10 minutes faster than last year despite my lackluster bike performance. My projected goal was 1:13, so I was pretty happy with this time.

Temple Triathlon 2008 - August 10, 2008
Swim:8:51, pace 2:31/100m pace
T1: 2:02
Bike: 33:14, 16.43mph pace
T2: 1:25
Run: 26:00, 12:22 pace
Total: 1:11:32

My pace improved over last race in all but the run. However, there was a massive hill 1.5 miles into the run. I admit it, I walked it. That being said, I think my pace was actually better than at Cutest Damn, walk not included. Woohoo!
