I had a great time racing the "Texas 70.3" in Galveston with a bunch of ZenTri fans. I went into it as a bit of a tune-up for Ironman Texas coming up on May 17th. This episode covers the race and also has good chunk of Triathlon News with my good buddy, Morgan Christian.
I ended up PR-ing with a 4:40, helped out by a very strong bike ride (Thanks to Strong Like Bull camp!) and even a nice tailwind for a good portion of the race. I biked 5 watts higher than last year and did most of the race in a comfortable aerobic zone. Here's the link to the entire race's workout file.
The Amrita kit was a nice touch and I got lots of cheers from fans that recognized me from the shows. Thanks, everbody! I did have a little bit of an upset stomach towards the end of the run, which I talk plenty about during the podcast.
Galveston is very family-friendly, so Emily and Kai got to have a lot of fun as well. Here's Kai and I attempting to steal a golf cart from the Kroger's parking lot right across from the beach.
And the ocean was beautiful on Friday night before the race. Lots of great surf and people out enjoying it.
As the weather is warming up, I'm getting outside more on the bike. Wildflowers are blooming like crazy right now and it's great to be on the road instead of in the Training Cave. I shot the pic below on one of my typical training rides.
With the warm weather, out come the critters! The backstory behind the snake photo is that I was swinging it around and trying to scare Kai with it. And I love how the car in the background is trying to get as much distance between itself and us as possible!
There's lots of fun and info in the show, so enjoy!
