Eric's Half-Ironman Training

I am now training for my second half-ironman race. The race is in Boulder this time in August, 2007. I finished the Florida Half-Ironman in May, 2007. Wish me luck!

PR - Personal Record

I hit 2 personal records today. I had my fastest 200m swim times on my split for a 600 meter swim. I also had my best 600 meter swim time too. Comparing my workout to Sunday's, I felt very slow on the first 600. I have two theories. 1) I need to WAKE UP!! 2)Wear my contacts. I will be swimming tomorrow so I will put my contacts on and see what happens.

Name: Cherry Creek State Park (x2) : 1:11:11
Odo: 485.2 miles
Max: 33.4 mph
Avg: 18.6 mph

I had a really good ride today. There was another ride who I wizzed by on the downhill. He passed me on the uphill; and I kept up. I passed him and kept my distance. He was getting closer and closer just before I went another direction. He really helped my push hard. My avg mph was 2 miles faster today than yesterday.
