Triathlon Season

It is now officially triathlon season for me.  I have completed a sprint triathlon with the YMCA in Punta Gorda, Florida.  A pool swim, 16mile bike and 5K.  Last weekend I complete Escape from Ft Desoto.  This was also a sprint with a twist.  0.5 mile swim, 10mile bike and 3.4 mile run including up the ramp and down the stairs at the Fort and onto the beach for the stretch home.  Ft Desoto is a beautiful spot.  The bike portion was windy but the private park road made for a nice ride.  I had a trouble with Transition one getting my left foot stuck in my wetsuit.  Time is places lost.  My run off the bike is just so so.  I ride as hard as I can then hope for the best.  Cant do that in longer races.  I hope I remember.
Next up is St Anthony's Olympic triathlon.  I get to rub elbow or at least stand in the sand where the pros did.  It is a great race as well.  I have a little niggle in my hamstring.  Hope it holds on.
