30 mile bike ride.  I blew a tire and tube on my ride this morning.  I was able to change the tube and limp home on the damaged tire.

13 mile run today. I  waited until Tuesday to enter the miles, as to give those mileage board lookers a false sense of security.

20 mile bike ride.  I got a flat with 3 miles to go!!  I hate flats.  I hope I don't get a flat on race day.  That could really screw things up.  I'm going to race with fresh tubes and tires.

10 mile run.  I started late and paid the price. Man was it hot.  Amazingly enough I felt pretty fast.

 

My wife raced the Bryce Canyon Half last Saturday in 1:47.  She's gotten the exact same time the three times she's raced it.  She was pretty happy.  I hear Logan kicked but.  Man that sucker is getting fast.  I remember when I was within a couple minutes of him, about 3 years ago.  He'd kick my trash now. 

Did a  46 minutes swim.

50 mile bike ride this morning.  No problems at all to report of.  I caught a taranchula on my ride this morning.  I brought it home and showed my wife and kids.  My wife wasn't as thrilled as the kids.  It was still alive.  It's one big spider.  I think I'm going to make a paper weight out of it.

30 mile bike ride, without incident.  A good ride.  My new tires came today!! They're supposedly puncture proof.  I'll put them on about a week before the race, just to make sure they're going to do the job.

 

30 minute swim.  The water is soooo warm here.  80 plus degrees.  I hear the water at Utah lake is pretty warm as well.  I'm assuming I won't need a wet suit.

An early 5:00 am run this morning. 13 miles.   It was dark, windy, raining and still hot!!!  I got up and looked at the weather and just about went back to bed.  I gave my wife the option of running first but she declined being the birthday girl of 30 and all. 

I'm glad I got out.  It ended up being a good run and now I won't feel guilty all day at work today.

8 miles.  Not too tough.  The tapper down period for the race has started.  I'm feeling strong.  Can't wait for race day next week.

35 mile bike ride.  I saw a dead coyote on the road this morning.  On the way back home the coyote was gone.  Who would want a dead coyote?
