Had a pretty awesome day in terms of energy level. Again I was reluctant to head out for my back to back to back workout with GU so I tried a little experiment and took along three bananas. I downed the first one right before swimming, the second one after my swim, and my third … Continue reading Paleo Day 10…Workout Fueling and Late Night Eats
So on a whim I decided to try a swim/bike/run routine this morning. At first I thought that I'd only for a nice long swim, but figured that now was a good of time as any to take an assessment of where I'm at, physically, for the triathlon in November.

(Well, technically the Ironman is a branded event and I am not actually attending an Ironman race, but it is the same race but from a different company. Sorry, that's my marketing background talking.) There's going to be lots of planning involved. For me, that's … Continue reading Planning For My First 70.3
