Ready for Lonestar

Next up is the Texas 2-step down in Galveston. I'm racing sprint Saturday and half iron Sunday.

My prep until yesterday had gone well, I've got my new bike, I had a good last swim on Sunday up at Quarry Lake followed by a hard run with 4-loops around. Saturday and sunday rides were good and Wednesday I had an easy swim and 5k run at Deep Eddy.

And so it came to Yesterday, I had a busy day lined up anyway, and then things became interesting at work. So yesterday was home, last massage with Blaze, down to city hall, three hours on the Street and Event Closure taskforce, I was one of the last speakers and then home to write up, my Austin Metroblog is here http://austin.metblogs.com/2009/04/02/street-closures-city-staff-and-council-process-over-people/

Then it was home, pack, cook up some food that would go bad if left over the w/e. Finally, prepare the slides for todays meeting and I went to bed just before 3am.

Up at 7.30, packed the bike and food for the w/e and left for a 6-hour exec meeting at work, I'm exhausted...

I'll leave direct from here and hopefully be down in Galveston in time to go to bed by 9pm.

Lonestar has a live webcast for all the important parts of the races Saturday and Sunday. You can follow along here http://www.lonestartri.com/lonestar/video.html

Hopefully you'll be able to see me in the Sprint Awards on Saturday afternoon and maybe the swim for the half ironman on Sunday.

I'll post updates on twitter and facebook.

quarry swim then loops
(Anonymous)
Mark, I love doing a Quarry Lake wet suit swim and then hard loops around the lake. It's a perfect spot for the swim/run brick of sorts. Let me know next time you are thinking of doing it. I know that they have the first Splash n Dash scheduled for the 21st but I will probably get in there sooner than that. ~Mercedes
Re: quarry swim then loops
Normally I'd plan on swimming at the Lake Monday and Thursday evenings. I plan to this Thursday but will only do maybe on or two easy laps for a run, around 5:15pm...
