Cascade Lake Sprint:
AND I didn't have to peel off a wetsuit at NorthEast! I did, however, EAT half my peanut butter sandwhich in T1 ... and gave a GU to a girl in T2 ... but this is an area when I can easily drop around 3 minutes. It pains me a little to know that I was so close to breaking three hours -- had I had slightly faster transitions and gone a little faster on the bike (I don't think I could have dropped much time from the swim or the run) I would have done it.
I COULD have done it, possibly, at Annapolis ... if Annapolis still had a bike component. I really wanted to get in two Olys before Savageman HIM but that is not going to happen.
Yesterday I had a horrible headache that would not go away ... I tried more water, more gatorade, more salt, more caffine, more sugar, more tylenol. This morning I feel pretty good -- a tiny bit sore all over but barely.
